“My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music

Cody and Sierra decided that they wanted to do a song from the much loved and well known musical “The Sound of Music.” Checkout our version of “My Favorite Things” which happens to be one of the Singing Dogs favorite songs.

My Favorite Things

Let us know if you liked this version of My Favorite Things below.  The Singing Dogs love to hear feedback and comments from fans! 🙂

I personally think our version is pretty good but I still manage to laugh (yeah… mess-up) when I am playing since having two dogs sing along to your saxophone playing is pretty entertaining even if you are used to it.  I just hope Julie Andrews likes this version since she is best known for singing My Favorite Things and playing the part of Maria.

I don’t think we will be invited to be on any future productions of The Sound of Music but it still is fun to post videos of the dogs ‘talent.’  Some of you probably watched the NBC’s live production of The Sound of Music on TV a couple days ago.  Sierra actually wanted to try out for Liesl, the oldest daughter in the Von Trapp family, but I wasn’t so sure that the producers of the show would let a singing dog on a live national TV musical production.  Although that would be really cool.  Also I don’t recall there being any roles for dogs in the Sound of Music.  Perhaps Sierra could be in a production of Annie since there is a dog in that musical.

Anyway, if you saw the Sound of Music Live on TV with Carrie Underwood, what did you think of it?  Did you enjoy it or not like it?  Also, let us know what your favorite things are?  Do you have any favorite songs?  We’d be happy to know.

My Endless Supply of Free Tennis Balls

Tennis Balls always seems to get lost and wear out quickly at the dog park and our backyard.  We seem to be running to the store every other week to get a new set of tennis balls.  The other day I was able to snag some Free Tennis Balls though. How and Where? Our local tennis courts!

I noticed our local tennis courts always have a lot tennis balls outside of the fence.  Usually people knock a few out of the courts, it’s inevitable.  I assumed that most go get the tennis balls after they finishing playing.  However, walking by the tennis courts with Cody and Sierra over and over, I realized this was a wrong assumption.

If a ball goes over the fence it seems most tennis players don’t bother to pick-up the balls.  It’s too much hassle!  This means my two English Shepherds very happy dogs.

As you can see we got quite a lot of tennis balls.  I will keep walking by the courts once in awhile to see if there are more tennis balls.

Seems I have hit the jackpot and now have an endless supply of tennis balls.  Just a good tip if your dog (or dogs) keep destroying or misplacing tennis balls.
