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 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 Sings “Auld Lang Syne” Lying Down! Best Version Ever!

I finished uploading and editing a version of “Auld Lang Syne” today which features just Singing Sierra.  (You can hear Crooning Cody too a little in the video too, but you need to listen closely.)

Sierra not only sings in this video but she is singing lying down on her side.  I would say it’s a lazy version of “Auld Lang Syne!”  Sierra likes to sing lying down a lot but this is one of the best videos we have of her singing lying down.  It’s great!

Sierra Sings “Auld Lang Syne” Lying Down

Compared to our original Auld Lang Syne Youtube video, which got us on Anderson, I think Sierra’s singing has really developed and improved.  She seems to be following notes more closely now and wants to follow along with the song and music.  Cody does a better job now too, but still doesn’t quite open up his mouth as much so his singing is more muffled.  I guess Sierra needs to give him more singing lessons.

Auld Lang Syne is just the start of the all the holiday music and songs we will be releasing over the next couple weeks.  We have many Christmas songs we are practicing and working on getting onto the camera.  Sierra and Cody can sometimes be “Dog Divas” and won’t sing when we get out the camera.  I guess they are shy!

Remember you can also Suggest Holiday Songs or Christmas songs for Crooning Cody and Singing Sierra to sing.  We can’t accommodate all song requests but will do our best to try.
