Sweet and Wonderful English Shepherd up for Adoption in Virginia

UPDATE 5-25-2013 – Mister Bear was adopted according to the National English Shepherd Rescue adoption page.

You might have noticed that we have started to post animals on Singing Dogs that are available for adoption.  Today I am featuring Mister Bear an English Shepherd located in Virginia.  I transported him from a shelter in Ohio out here so he could find a good home.  Unfortunately he has been  in foster care with the National English Shepherd Rescue for over a year.

I think it is really time for him to find his forever home (some like to say furever home) with a new family.  He was a sweet and calm dog when I transported him and I have been told he has adjusted quite well to being in a foster care environment.

Wanted: Special person who enjoys laughing, fully living every moment, and lots of public displays of affection. If you bring confidence, experience, and a gentle hand to this relationship, I’ll give you all the love you can handle! Sheep, goats, or geese are a plus, but not a necessity, so long as we have plenty of room to play and you can think of ways to keep me busy! My first relationship was a huge disappointment, but I’m ready to try again, so if you like long walks through green pastures, full-body hugs, and chasing the occasional goose back into its pen, please drop a line to my agent, Michael.

Can’t wait to meet you!
Love, Mister Bear

Sierra featured on MSN Now

Including Sierra being featured on Babble and the Huffington Post she was also featured on MSN Now back on December 31st, 2012.  It was a pretty funny and cool article:

Hoping for a rocking New Year’s Eve party? Might want to cross Sierra the singing dog off your guest list. Here she is, moaning along to “Auld Lang Syne,” with her buddy Cody chiming in from the sidelines. The musical canines belong to sax player Adam Yamada-Hanff and have appeared on Anderson Cooper’s show. They’re also the stars of Yamada-Hanff’s SingingDogs.net website and have their own Singing DogsRock channel on YouTube. But while this Baltimore-based English shepherd may be a musical maestro, this time she just can’t be bothered to sit up straight to ring in 2013. Here’s hoping this isn’t yet another sign of an impending apocalypse.

What do you think of all of our media coverage?  Leave a comment below and let us know.

Hopefully in 2013 we will have even more press and media appearances.

Singing Dogs PetAg Giveaway

petag dog food

Could your dog or pooch stand to loose a few pounds here and there?  Is that the New Year’s Resolution you have for your dog (and probably yourself)?  Then you will be happy to hear that the Singing Dogs are holding our very first giveaway for some healthy dog treats and food to help your dog shed that extra weight in 2013.

We are giving away some great healthy dog food and treats kindly provided by PetAg, a pet food company.  PetAg focuses on providing dogs, cats, and pets with healthy and nutritional food instead of the junky and fatty food you might find at you local pet or grocery store.

Cody and Sierra liked the PetAg treats we gave them and were not at all turned off by them.  Since my Singing Dogs can be quite fussy eaters sometimes I took this as a good sign that the PetAg treats are nutritional and tasty.  (Of course I haven’t actually eaten the treats myself .)

There are two prize packages which means there are two possible winners. The Singing Dogs PetAg Prize Package includes:

  1. 28 ounce container of PetAg Dog Slim Food Supplement ($39.99 Retail Value)
  2. Two bags of DogSlim Dog Treats

To enter this out PetAg Giveaway you must do two things.

  1. Like the Singing Dogs Facebook Page OR Follow us on Twitter
  2. Leave a comment here with a valid email address and let me know which one you did.

I will pick the winner randomly and our PetAg giveaway ends at Cody and Sierra’s discretion.   Multiple entries are not allowed.  People who are already following us on Facebook and Twitter are eligible but still must leave a comment.  Shipping is will be covered by us to the lower 48 US states.

Let me know if you have any questions about our Giveaway. Btw Cody is in the picture, but he is not included in the Giveaway! 🙂

Cat Loves (or Hates) Singing Dogs

cat loves singing dogs

If you think two Singing Dogs was funny, how about a Cat that Loves Singing Dogs?  I got an email today from a no-kill animal shelter down in Tennessee, The Tennessee Humane Animal League, who sent me this video of Jackie one of there available cats for adoptions.

Here is what they said about Jackie when they play our original ‘Auld Lang Syne‘ video (which got us on Anderson by the way) for this smart cat;

“Apparently it effects cats too. see attached. Jackie has never done this. I tested it three times. Every time I started the video and she heard it, she came running over and did the same thing… “singing dogs” blog is not just for dogs.”

I think that Jackie the cat loves singing dogs, but what about you?  Does the keyboard pawing mean she doesn’t like it and wants it to stop?   Leave a comment below and let me know what you think.

If you are interested in adopting Jackie click here.

Jackie is a calm, laid back, friendly girl.  This Tuxedo beauty with medium length fur was born March 31, 2007.  Jackie is in fantastic shape – her weight is ideal.  She has high contrast white whiskers against her dark face and a smattering of white that runs up the length of her nose.

Jackie is affectionate with people and starts making biscuits with her front paws when you talk to her.  She would love a home where she can nap on soft blankets, sit in windows, and be part of the activities of her family – especially if the activity involves time together.  Jackie is fearful of dogs and would prefer a home where no dogs can bother her.

In the listing for Jackie it says she is fearful of dogs, but judging from the video I am not so sure.  Hopefully this wonderful kitty can find a good home soon.

Sierra’s “Auld Lang Syne” Version is a Viral Video!

Happy New Year everyone!  I am sure that almost everyone in the world knows and heard “Auld Lang Syne” on New Year’s Eve.  The famous Scottish Melody they play in Times Square and basically everywhere when the clock strikes midnight.

Sierra’s lazy version of Auld Lang Syne is starting to become a viral video!  It was shown on Good Morning America on December 31st. 2012 for the “Play of the Day” segment where they showcase funny videos from around the internet.  From there it seemed to pick up steam as it was posted on MSN Now, Babble, and ton of other websites and blogs.  The video was even posted on  Cheezburger and Buzzfeed which really boosted our numbers.

I assumed Sierra’s Auld Lang Syne video would be slowing down in view counts yesterday and today, but keep checking and the Youtube view counter keep going up by a couple thousand views each time I look.  Last time I checked was just before 12pm EST and view counter was just under 35,000.  It’s nice so many people love Sierra. and Cody’s soft background, singing to the sounds of the saxophone.  (Well, some comments you read not everyone likes singing dogs.)

Let’s keep up that view counting rolling and keep sharing Sierra’s Auld Lang Syne video to ring in the New Year.  We hope we can spread joy and cheer around the world with our videos and we are glad that it’s being shared so much.

Happy New Year! Enjoy our “Auld Lang Syne” Videos!

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.
