Happy New Year 2013

The Singing Dogs just wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year 2013!  We appreciate all of our fans and readers of this blog and hope that 2014 brings you good luck.

What better way to bring in the New Year with a great rendition of Auld Lang Syne by Cody and Sierra.  Remember this was the video that got us on “Anderson” with Anderson Cooper.

Singing Dogs “Auld Lang Syne”

Pretty cool!  I still like how in the end of “Auld Lang Syne” Sierra decides that she is done and can leave and encourages Cody to do the same.

Sierra is a bit of a dog diva and will only sing under certain circumstances.  For instance sometimes she prefers to sing lying down on her side.

Sierra’s Auld Lang Syne Video on Good Morning America!

Sierra’s Auld Lang Syne Video on Good Morning America!

Another BIG appearance I haven’t put up on Singing Dogs is that Sierra was on Good Morning America for the New Year’s Show! A producer contacted me and said that they “Loved” the video of Sierra singing to ‘Auld Lang Syne’ lying down and they wanted to show it on Good Morning America for the Play of the Day segment.

For those that might have missed it (we did too by the way) you can watch the video here.  I included the short promo they did before the commercial break.

Pretty cool, right?  I mean the guy call Sierra a “He” but at least she was the best part of the Play of the Day segment.  (That is my biased opinion.)  He did say “English Shepherd” which was accurate.

It took me awhile to get the video on Youtube.  Someone sent me a VHS of the show, then I transferred that onto a DVD with my Toshiba DVD Recorder, put the file on my laptop, then I finally got it edited correctly and uploaded it to the SingingDogsRock channel.  It was sort of annoying because it was so time consuming.  At least the video is up so people can see it now.

Please leave a comment below and let us know what you think of Sierra’s Good Morning America appearance.  Got an opinion about Cody and Sierra’s other media and press appearances?  Leave a comment too!

Sierra featured on MSN Now

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.

Sierra Featured on Parenting Website Babble

sierra on babble.com

I am bit late with posting this but I thought I would let everyone know that Sierra was featured on the parenting website Babble.com about a month ago for New Year’s.

I love to sing and I love listening to my kids sing too.

There is something about it that seems to release the happy emotions and reduce the stress when you belt out your favorite tune!

With the New Year ringing in tonight, one song many of us will be singing is the classic New Year’s song, “Auld Lang Syne.” Sung by the crowd as the clock strikes midnight, this song becomes very popular this time of year.

I don’t know the words to this song, but the tune I could hum at any moment — it’s just so catchy. That’s what this dog feels too because she sings along to the instrumental of the music. Sierra and her partner Cody is one of the two Singing Dogs who love to belt out the tunes.

This video shows Sierra serenading us all into the new year with her rendition of the traditional New Year’s song.

We thought it was a nice article and it was written by Devan McGuinness.  Thanks for sharing Sierra’s “Auld Lang Syne” video Devan and we hope you will write more articles about us!

In the post Devan linked to an article from Modern Dog Magazine about Dogs In Music.  It is an interesting read and I am glad she linked to the article since I learned a lot from reading it and found it interesting.

Btw I wouldn’t feel bad about not knowing the lyrics to Auld Lang Syne.  I know some the lyric to it but not all of them.  Of course Sierra and Cody know all the lyrics very well.

You can find Devan McGuinness on her blog Accustomed Chaos which is all about her, her family, and great vegan and gluten free recipes.  Devan is also the founder of the website Unspoken Grief which helps women who have experienced a miscarriage.

Sierra on Huffington Post

Sierra’s video “Dog Loves Auld Lang Syne” has been getting quite a lot of media attention on a number of different websites.  One very notable place Sierra was recently featured was on the Huffington Post  (January 2nd, 2013.)

Surprised I missed it and only noticed a few days after it was posted.   It was pretty cool we were featured on there and we have even more media appearances coming up actually.  Stay tuned for more updates and see our Press page to see all the places we have been mentioned and talked about.

 

 

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.
