Songs that remind you of your dog?

I heard this song for the first time after I got my GSD, and every time I hear it, I'm reminded of my GSD Charlie.


When I hear this song I imagine exploring with my dog in a "Dances With Wolves" Spring-Summer time South Dakota/Wyoming rolling hills and field-like wilderness in clear blue skies speckles with beautiful white clouds and a nice cool breeze.

I find this strange because there are parts of this song that say "Africa" while others say "Good ol' North American Wilderness."

For the life of me I can't remember where I first heard this song :/

Are there any songs that make you think of your dogs?

Hi, I'm Charlie. And, you are?

Definitely this one:

Kaiju's endlessly happy and always excited to go go go with whatever I ask him to do. Always happy to relax, explore, run, learn, and do pretty much anything. Best dog I could ever ask for.

A Clearing in the Wild by Red Tail Ring

I was lucky to come across this amazing duo during my time in the Midwest for more reasons than one.

When Duke was uneasy during car rides, he used to whine...but not just any whine. It was an incredibly high pitched "you-cannot-ignore-me" whine that earned him the nickname "Rape Whistle" (true story). I began to play this song to him and he became quiet.

When I don't have the CD with me and Duke is anxious, I sing this lullaby to him and he visibly calms down.

Today, I needed this therapy as I battled lovely traffic caused by OTC.

This song has saved my sanity on several occasions, and now, every time I hear it, I think of Duke.

Leonard Cohen: in one of the lyrics there is a line "they gave me a German Shepherd to walk". This helped me be strong after WD died and decide to go for a new pup. So thanks to Mr. Cohen I have my beautiful new pup DDog.

I would have to say something by AC/DC...

"I'm on the Highway to ****"
"Hells Bells"

Not sure which fits best.
