I sing to my dogs!!
And my singing voice is like a scratched record in 33 speed on one of those small old record players for kids.
But I do it and I have fun.
My first Golden, as some of you know, was Nicholas. Back in the 80s there was a song called, Oh Mickey, sung by Toni Basil in 1982. Well, I changed the words to say:
Oh Nicky, you’re so fine
You’re so fine you blow my mind, hey Nicky,
Oh Nicky, what a pity you don’t understand
You take me by the heart when you take me by the hand
Oh Nicky, you’re so pretty, can’t you understand
It’s dogs like you Nicky
Oh, what you do Nicky, do Nicky
Don’t break my heart, Nicky
Then for Willy I made up my own words. Willy had these golden eyes that I fell in love with. He also had a big feather duster of a tail that I loved so much. Willy was just pure love. I was truly in awe of how much love he gave to the world. And I was so grateful that he gave some to me each day. So when we were driving in the truck and he was sitting in the passenger seat I would sing to him –
“Bright eyes and bushy tail. Bright eyes and bushy tail. The proudest man a dog could ever own. The proudest man a dog could ever own.”
Sometimes it seemed that Willy looked over at me from his side of the truck and just shook his head in disbelief.
Now Morgan gets to have two songs. One from me and one from his other Daddy.
“Oh Mr. Morgan, sing me a song (bung, bung, bung, bung)
Make it the sweetest that I’ve ever heard (bung, bung, bung, bung)
Give him two lips like roses and clover (bung, bung, bung, bung)
Then tell him that his lonesome nights are over.
Oh Mr. Morgan, sing me a song (bung, bung, bung, bung)
Morgan must be as tone deaf as I am because I swear when I sing to him he looks at me and a big smile appears on his face.
James has his own song for Morgan. He likes to call Morgan, “Boo Boo”
I love Boo Boo in the spring time
I love Boo Boo in the fall
I love Boo Boo in the winter, when it drizzles
I love Boo Boo in the summer, when it sizzles
I love Boo Boo every moment of the year.
Now, I know that we can’t be the only ones who serenade our furry family members,
Truth! – Tell us what special song you sing to your pet.
