My puppy Sandee is a little over weight...and after walking around and hearing different pronouciations of Collie (I say Call-e, but I have heard others say Coal-e) my dad started calling her a Rolly Pol-ie Coalie....

So now when I am visiting home...I starting singing that to the tune of Rolie Polie Olie, from the kids show...

I am so glad I am not alone! I sing to my dogs all the time. I always change the songs but lately its been the wheels on the bus.. I just changed the lyrics to the doggies on the bus instead of the babies...I would never admit that outside of this forum

My old girl can't hear me sing anymore, a blessing in disguise?, but I sing all kinds of songs to her. It cracks our DGD up no end.

To Danny Boy:
"Oh Maddie Girl, your ears are far too per-er-ky. Your beautiful coat, makes people pet your head. Your potato-y nose . . ." You get the idea.

My neighbors undoubtably think I'm a nut case.

I never used to, but my best friend comes to visit me from out of town, and she takes my big ol' doggie's face in her hands and sings to him. She sings this song:

I l-o-v-e y-o-u...You're all of my dreams come true.
From your cute little toes, to the tip of your nose.
I l-o-v-e y-o-u.

My dog loves it. He "talks" to her while she's singing it.

Maybe I'll try singing to him (and maybe even all the rest of my pets...total of 3 dogs, 2 cats, 2 turtles and 1 fish)

Ach! I never get that Youtube thing right. It always looks right when I preview the post though. One of these days I'll get it right. Lets try it again, but just in case the link is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DpA2tMrQ4RU

[YOUTUBE]<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/DpA2tMrQ4RU&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/DpA2tMrQ4RU&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>[/YOUTUBE]

Well, my dog's name is Sunshine (obviously) and so, of course, I sing all the Sunshine songs to her.

You are my Sunshine, My only Sunshine...
Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy...

I also sing loads of other things like Knock on Wood (she likes that one) or whatever song I have in my head at the particular time. Or, like you all, I'll make something up on the spot.

She loves when I sing to her.

I think.

At least she seems to be paying attention.

Probably just waiting for a treat.

Well, I like it.

That's a song I have sung to my kids- it's the I Love You Lullaby! Very smooshy, but they loved it.
