Suggest Holiday Songs for The Singing Dogs!

singing dogs

The Holiday Season is right around the corner and this means different things for different people.  For Crooning Cody, Singing Sierra and myself (aka The Singing Dogs) this means we are practicing hard on getting some holiday songs ready for the holiday season.

Instead of us dictating what our loyal fans and public want to hear and see on your Youtube channel, I thought I would ask all of you.  I am sure lots of people have their own personal favorite holiday songs and tunes they want to hear sung by “The Singing Dogs.”  If this is the case, please don’t hesitate to let us know by leaving a comment below.

Please note Sierra is what I refer to as a “Dog Diva” since she only sings when she feels the urge and wants to.  Sierra also doesn’t always like it when we shoot her on camera, since we can’t figure out her good side.  Cody will sing by himself once in awhile, but not nearly as loudly when he has dog duets with Sierra.

Therefore it will be difficult for me to fulfill all song requests and we just can’t do every holiday song.  We are happy to accept requests for obscure songs, but please note if you can’t provide a for us to hear the song or sheet music it will be difficult for us to cover the song.  Cody, Sierra, and I would have to find the time to transcribe the song and then shoot a video for it, which is a time consuming process.

 

Cody and Sierra on “Anderson” with Anderson Cooper

This was posted on Adam’s Auto Advice on December 27, 2011 but I thought I should share it here. 

Yesterday Sierra, Cody, my Mom and I appeared on Anderson Cooper’s new daytime talk show, Anderson, on national TV! It was quite amazing to see ourselves on TV with Anderson Cooper. It was sort of surreal, “Was that real?”

Then I flashed back to when we actually went up to New York City for the taping and remembered talking with Anderson Cooper. That was real!

When you see yourself on national TV though, you realize a lot of people will see this! My immediate thoughts when I saw myself on TV were, “Is that really me?” You tend to have an outer image of what you think you look like. When you see a picture of yourself you are not crazy about you rationalize, “Oh well, nobody will see this!”

I was pleased with how the whole segment turned out. You are kind of afraid that maybe you did something odd or stupid, and did not realize it. Then it will be shown on TV! I thought my playing was good, and Sierra’s singing was wonderful. It looked like Cody was going to sing, but I guess he wasn’t in the mood. He had such a stoic and proud look when Sierra was singing. He’s got a great voice as well, but maybe he just wanted Sierra to have the spotlight.

At least I was happy I able to keep my composure. I was also happy that the dogs behaved and that they looked very nice on TV. The baths definitely helped!

When the segment aired Cody watched intently like he usually does when dogs are on TV. However, this time he was watching himself. Sierra did something pretty hilarious. When she heard herself on TV, she vocalized softly while lying down on the bed through the entire song. It was great!

If you missed the Anderson segment yesterday, don’t worry. It has already been posted on the Anderson website. Click here, to watch it. The segment did not show our full Auld Lang Syne video. Check out the SingingDogsRock Youtube Channel for additional videos.

In Baltimore it was on NBC at 2pm, but other people told me it was on Fox and CBS. People also wrote emails saying the show aired at 9am and 10am in some parts of the country. I don’t know how TV works these days!

I hope this leads to more opportunities for us. I have consulted with Sierra and Cody and they would like to use their musical gifts to help animals in need.

Please visit National English Shepherd Rescue (NESR), if you want to learn more about English Shepherds. Maybe you would even like to adopt one to love and cherish.

Singing Puppy and Dogs Improvise the Blues

Sierra and Scout

It’s a blistering hot day here in Baltimore but Sierra, Scout, and Cody have a good way to keep cool, by singing the Blues! That’s right it seems all three of these English Shepherds are fans of the blues.  Maybe they have the blues because of the heat and are not playing outside today.  I don’t know!  I can only tell you I love playing the blues with them! 🙂

Cody did sing but unfortunately he wasn’t in the field of view for the video.  You can still hear his nice deep bass voice though.

Sierra Teaches a Puppy How To “Sing”

Currently Cody, Sierra, and our musical family are fostering a great English Shepherd Puppy named Scout.  This guy is smart, sweet, sensitive and… is also a singer!  That means we now have a Dog Singing Trio! 🙂

Sierra, the dog diva, gave Scout a singing lesson.  If you watch the video below you can clearly see he is watching Sierra and trying to mimic her singing.  Of course Sierra thinks nobody can match her singing.  After all she is a “Dog Diva!”

Cody actually first gave Scout a singing lesson, but we didn’t get that on video.  Scout seemed to react well to Cody’s deeper singing voice.  Cody is also singing in this video too but we couldn’t get him in the frame with the other singing dogs.  You will have to listen carefully.
