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!
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!
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.
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.
If you think two Singing Dogs was funny, how about a Cat that Loves Singing Dogs? I got an email today from a no-kill animal shelter down in Tennessee, The Tennessee Humane Animal League, who sent me this video of Jackie one of there available cats for adoptions.
Here is what they said about Jackie when they play our original ‘Auld Lang Syne‘ video (which got us on Anderson by the way) for this smart cat;
“Apparently it effects cats too. see attached. Jackie has never done this. I tested it three times. Every time I started the video and she heard it, she came running over and did the same thing… “singing dogs” blog is not just for dogs.”
I think that Jackie the cat loves singing dogs, but what about you? Does the keyboard pawing mean she doesn't like it and wants it to stop? Leave a comment below and let me know what you think.
If you are interested in adopting Jackie click here.
Jackie is a calm, laid back, friendly girl. This Tuxedo beauty with medium length fur was born March 31, 2007. Jackie is in fantastic shape – her weight is ideal. She has high contrast white whiskers against her dark face and a smattering of white that runs up the length of her nose.
Jackie is affectionate with people and starts making biscuits with her front paws when you talk to her. She would love a home where she can nap on soft blankets, sit in windows, and be part of the activities of her family – especially if the activity involves time together. Jackie is fearful of dogs and would prefer a home where no dogs can bother her.
In the listing for Jackie it says she is fearful of dogs, but judging from the video I am not so sure. Hopefully this wonderful kitty can find a good home soon.
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.
