I thought I'd cross-post this here, since it's hard to hear 50's television / Ren and Stimpy style "light music" without feeling at least a little bit better about your day. PLUS, it's the latest in my series of songs I've written for my dog, and there's a happy story to go along with it.
I wrote this after my dog, Nugget
, recovered from being terribly sick. Let's just say he ate a scrap of fabric and it ...didn't come out. After a couple of days he was in bad shape, dehydrated and in constant pain. Without emergency surgery, things didn't look good.
Well, as luck would have it, on the very morning that we were due to discuss said surgery, the problem resolved itself.
On his walk, in front of a bunch of little kids. "Oh look a puppy, he is cute, what's his EWWWWWWWWWWW."
This is the music that was playing in my head as we joyfully skipped the whole way home. I transcribed it out of my head, for you to hear. It may or may not be the best music ever written to celebrate a dog crapping.
