It’s Friday and the beginning of a four-day weekend for us here at the House of Insanity so I am feeling pretty free and easy. I figured it was the perfect time for a fluffy reader-participation post. What better?
Earlier in the week a Facebook friend posted this question and I have been ruminating over it ever since. If your dog had a theme song, what would it be?
I’ve thought about it and thought about it and I have yet to come up with a satisfactory answer. There are just so many choices! And so many facets of crazy.
In the past, my PH and I have often jokingly sung “Where’s Your Head At” by Basement Jaxx while Shiva runs directly into trees or catapults herself from the front door to the top of the stairs. Common sense is not her strong point. Heck, thinking isn’t her strong point. Maybe she feels she had to do enough of that during her time as a stray. I am pretty sure she left her brain at the shelter and never looked back.
Another song that often comes into my head is “There She Goes” by The La’s. Yes, it’s probably about drugs. But every time Shiva runs off the agility course or leaves me to nosh on birdseed, I can hear this song playing. The rest of the lyrics aren’t inaccurate either.
The fourth option I came up with is one of my favourite confidence-boosting songs. “When I’m Up (I Can’t Get Down” by Great Big Sea is always fun and suits Shiva’s plucky personality. Nothing gets this dog down, not even our grumpy cat can put her in a bad mood.
What do you think? Does your dog have a theme song?
