The Dog Song!

The Dog Song!

I just discovered a very sweet song by a very sweet lady about a very sweet subject. I give you "The Dog Song" by Nellie McKay.

Clearly Nellie loves her pooch, but the song has a great message too; "Just go right to the pound/ And find yourself a hound/ And make that doggie proud/ 'cause that's what it's all about."

This is great advice! In Australia 23 dogs and cats are put to sleep every hour because there aren't enough loving homes for them. It just makes sense to get a dog from a shelter and save a life (rather than buying from a pet store or breeder). Not only that, but you'll end up with a very loving and loyal companion.

I was pretty impressed with this cute song so I looked up the singer. It seems Nellie has also written a song about the vivisection that goes on at Columbia university and is involved in the campaign to ban horse drawn carriages from city streets. Sounds like the animals have a very talented friend in her!

I'm gonna go walk my best friend now!

Nellie McKay seems to be a very nice young woman with her heart in the right place, if the words in her song about her dog are the way she really thinks and feels.
