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 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

I am bit late with posting this but I thought I would let everyone know that Sierra was featured on the parenting website 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.

Checkout “Singing Dogs Rock” our new Youtube Channel!

Some of you might seen our post from yesterday, Sierra Sings “Auld Lang Syne” Lying Down.  Some of you might have noticed, some of you may have not, but now how have a new Youtube channel, SingingDogsRock.  The older Youtube channel was SingingSierra1, which was fine when it was just Sierra who liked to sing to my saxophone.  However Cody sings to my saxophone now too so it didn't seem fair to just have Sierra in the channel name.  We also hope to feature other dogs that like to sing on your new Youtube channel as well.

Including the new Youtube channel I will be making an effort to post on other video websites such as Vimeo and DailyMotion.  Sometimes we find that Youtube is slow and the servers are unresponsive when uploading videos and trying to watch them.  Don't you hate that circular buffering icon?  🙂


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.
