Does your pet have a song?

I sing to my pets a lot. Often they are made up songs to whatever tune is in my head and sometimes I sing real ones. My cats never have had a song, but my dogs have.

Loki's song was "the Difference", by Matchbox Twenty. The December we got him nearly 10 years ago, I spent many hours standing on the corner hoping he would pee. There is a line in the song that use to get stuck in my head in the middle of the night "Slow dancing on the boulevard in the quiet moments while the city's still dark." For the 8 years of his life, I sang this to him.

Gemi came around during our CSI phase, and her song was the Who's "Who are you?"  This became her song because she would get mad when we would sing the "who, who" part. She didn't like it. We thought it was funny. Poor girl! In her last year of life, she earned a second song "Fire Woman" by the Cult, so maybe this made up for her main song being one designed to annoy her:) She got this song because it was on in the car on the way to the park several times. She was sitting all regal like in the back seat, with the window partly opened, looking like a queen, and I thought it fit her.

I realized recently, Hailey does not have a song yet. While I sing to her, there is not one song that is "hers". She may argue that this is further proof that I don't love her and she is abused and neglected (I don't think anyone is going to believe that!).  So I am now on a mission to finder her a song.

  1. Halladay's song is the intro to Dexter. I used to have that as my alarm clock so every morning we would wake up to it. Then when we would watch Dexter, that song would play and Halladay would look at us, all confused.

    Wookie doesn't have a song yet, though.
