Happy New Year everyone! Well it's not quite New Year's and it is still a few days away but it's never too early to celebrate the New Year with Crooning Cody and Singing Sierra, also known as the Singing Dogs. Especially since Cody and Sierra love to sing along to the classic Scottish melody and New Year's song, “Auld Lang Syne.”
Remember this video of Cody and Sierra singing to “Auld Lang Syne” got us on the daytime TV show “Anderson” with the well known CNN news anchor Anderson Cooper. (Did you know Anderson Cooper is a Vanderbilt? As well he is Gloria Vanderbilt's son.) To see the Anderson segment please visit our Press page.
Sierra and I also made a new “Auld Lang Syne” video where she is a bit lazy. As of today the video seems to have about 12,500+ views. Youtube view counters are always behind the real view count number so it's hard to tell. Please keep up the view counts as we hope our Happy New Year message will go viral! 🙂
Again, we just wanted to to wish everyone a Happy New Year. We hope you had a great 2012 and accomplished everything you wanted. For 2013 we hope that you will make New Year's Resolutions and goals that you can also achieve and follow through with. Our New Year's Resolution is to help more animals and make more people happy with our music.
Do you have New Year's Resolution? Anything you want to accomplish in the New Year? Please leave a comment below and let us know.
The Singing Dogs and I have been working on more Christmas songs and holiday music for all of our fans enjoyment. Yesterday it didn't seem like Singing Sierra or Crooning Cody were in a musical mood. I was playing for quite awhile on my Alto saxophone with piano accompaniment by my brother. We were just practicing and I was not expecting much… until Sierra started to sing to “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.” Cody joined in as well.
It seem we just need to get into the right groove as a band and play the right song for them to sing. I was playing “Jingle Bells” and some other Christmas songs but there was no reaction. I think Singing Sierra and Crooning Cody really liked having a complete band with the piano. It gives the singing dogs a much fuller sound. More videos with piano accompaniment are on there way before Christmas.
We hope you all enjoy “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.” Please also watch our other Christmas songs “Rudolph the Rednose Reindeer” and “O Christmas Tree.” If you have Christmas songs you would like the Singing Dogs to sing please submit a song request. We can't guarantee we fulfill a request but we will try out best to do so.
If you like our videos please leave a comment and let us know. We love hearing from fans! Please also Like our Facebook page and Follow us on our Twitter feed. You can also see more videos on our Youtube channel. We keep everyone updated with the latest news and videos of the Singing Dogs there.
Cody and Sierra love singing for special occasions and holidays. As you can see they especially like to sing”Happy Birthday.”
We hope you enjoy our rendition. If someone in your family, or a friend, neighbor, etc. birthday is soon, please remember to send them our “Happy Birthday” video. You can't get anymore special or thoughtful than sending a video of singing dogs doing a great rendition of Happy Birthday.
Now that Thanksgiving is over Christmas songs on the radio and stores are in full swing.
Crooning Cody, Singing Sierra and I have started to record a few special and unique versions of classic Christmas songs. We are still working on a couple currently but we decided to start off with the well known classic, “Rudolph the Rednose Reindeer” since that was requested via email by a fan of the singing dogs.
While I was playing the song I started laughing, since it was just too funny not to laugh! Even after playing with Cody and Sierra for awhile it is still very hard not to laugh when they are both singing loudly together. It's nice they both can have dog duets.
Please leave a comment and let us know what you think of our latest video. If you have any requests for holiday songs or Christmas songs please let us know. The Singing Dogs won't be able to fulfill all song requests but we will try out best to do so.
Some of you might seen our post from yesterday, Sierra Sings “Auld Lang Syne” Lying Down. Some of you might have noticed, some of you may have not, but now how have a new Youtube channel, SingingDogsRock. The older Youtube channel was SingingSierra1, which was fine when it was just Sierra who liked to sing to my saxophone. However Cody sings to my saxophone now too so it didn't seem fair to just have Sierra in the channel name. We also hope to feature other dogs that like to sing on your new Youtube channel as well.
Including the new Youtube channel I will be making an effort to post on other video websites such as Vimeo and DailyMotion. Sometimes we find that Youtube is slow and the servers are unresponsive when uploading videos and trying to watch them. Don't you hate that circular buffering icon? 🙂
