(Jack Russell Terrier)  Dig It Up


You think you've got my number,

You don't know Jack

Stand back I'm going under

Clear out you dirty little rats


Dig it up, dig it up, dig it up

I love to dig the dirt

Dig it up, dig it up, dig it up

I'm gonna rock your earth

Move your body from side to side

Oh honey just let it slide

Move your body with all you got

We Jacks are red hot!


Jack Russell that's the name

Holy terrier

She's Jill and she' s my dame

Runnin' with the Harriers


Dig it up .......... chorus


Get back, get back you dirty little rats

Get back, clear the track cause here comes Jack


Smooth coat or wired hair

What do you need

We can ride to any dare

From zero to warp speed


Dig it up.......chorus

Japanese Chin


Welcome into our palace, leave all your cares behind

May we present the Empress, to her we're so divine

We have an ancient history from China to Japan

We play with pretty Geishas and cheer on Sumo man.


Jump up, you've got to raise your paws now

Come on let us show you how

It's not hard to do a little spin

Everybody dance with the Japanese Chin


We have but one desire to see you laugh and smile

So bring your paws together and dance with us in style

We walk like cats on tables, we don't disturb a thing

We sit in highest places, opera we love to sing


Jump up .......


We're loved by aristocrats

We curl up and warm their laps

It's not hard to do a little spin

Everybody dance with the Japanese Chin


We strut about so lively, plumbed tail above our back

So bright and independent, red & white, white & black

We have but one desire to see you laugh and smile

So bring your paws together and dance with us in style


Jump up .....

Keeshond


We are known across the Netherlands

As the Smiling Dutchmen

The mascot of the Patriots

The common people sure loved us

In our blood the Sammy's found,

Poms, Chows, and Elkhounds

A compact dog with Arctic Spitz

We do a little dance and it goes like this


Klompen with our wooden clogs

Watch our little cat like paws

Clap your hands and fill the streets

Join the party, one, two, three

(Roll down that river, join the fun

We deliver, we're Keeshonden)


Long ago Wolfspitz were we

Frolicking in Germany

Friendly, loving - full of fun

In Holland we became Keeshond

Our double coat is thick and straight

Tips of black that top the grey

A pompous tail above our back

We're happiest when in a pack


Chorus


On the barge or riverboat

Along the Rhine we do float

Our foxy face shines like the sun

You can't help loving Keeshonden

Around the world we bring Holland

Share the Smiling Dutchmen

When tulips bloom in Keukenhof

They all salute the Dutch Barge Dog


Chorus

(Kerry Blue)  You're So Blue


You're so blue, Kerry Blue, I love you, I always will

Everything that you do, you've made my dreams come true -

Kerry Blue, without you, what would I do - I'd be so blue

You're the smile in the dark, you're the love in my heart

Kerry Blue


High upon a hill top, standing oer the sea

Running cross the meadow you come back to me

Blossoms in the springtime, summer's in the air

Wherever there it blue sky, I will find you there


You're so blue, Kerry Blue, I love you, I always will

Everything that you do, You've made my dreams come true

Kerry Blue


High upon a hilltop, standing oer the sea

Running cross the meadow you come back to me

Blossoms in the springtime, summer's in the air

Wherever there is blue sky, I will find you there


You're so blue, Kerry Blue, I love you, I always will

Everything that you do, you've made my dreams come true -

Kerry Blue

(We Stand Like a Rock)  Kuvasz


Come gather 'round children curl up at my side

I'll tell you a story of days long gone by.

The song of the Kuvasz is sad and is sweet

Through darkness of wars to here at your feet.

I'll tell you of struggles and turbulent times,

From the peaks of Tibet to Carpathian skies,

It's all in my blood, it's all in my heart,

There's nothing dear children could tear us apart.


This is my song, we stand like a rock

Faithful and strong, we are Kuvaszok

God leads us on cause we stand like a rock

This is our song, we are Kuvaszok


I once had a king and I pledged him my life -

(The reason Matthias could sleep through the night).

We hunted big game and I ran by his steed

I watched over him and he watched oer my breed

Centuries went by, our courage renowned,

We guarded the herds where the wolves would abound.

The white of our coat would shine in the dark

And even the bear would flee when we barked.


chorus


Long we survived through rich history

When great wars brought ruin throughout Hungary.

At the end of the battles our numbers were few,

We fell with our people and all that we knew.

But listen now children curl up at my side

As long as there's love we all will survive,

The song of the Kuvasz is sad and is sweet

Through darkness of wars to here at your feet.

(Lakeland Terrier)  Rats!


Rats! - nah nah nah nah nah nah give me rats

Give me squirrels and foxes and bats

I love to chase down those little brats

Give me rats!

I love to run with the Harrier

I am the Lakeland Terrier

Rats! nah, nah, nah.......I love rats!


Nothing's too high, I can't get over it

Too low, I can't get under it

Too wide, I can't get around it

Too long so I can't get down it


Rats! And while we're talkin' 'bout my tail

I'm tired of being called the little Airedale

Do I have to prove my merit in ferrets and rats!

I'm very strong when push comes to shove (I'm the Lakeland Terrier)

I guard my home with conviction and love


Nobody has courage like me

I'll run for days to protect my sheep

And when the sun sets in the west I'm the best

Nobody is daring-er, I am the Lakeland Terrier

Rats! nah, nah, ........I love rats!


Nothin's too high so I can't get over it

Too low so I can't get under it

Too wide so I can't get around it

Too long so I can't get down it -


Rats! nah, nah, nah.....give me rats

Give me squirrels and foxes and bats

I love to chase down those little brats

Give me rats!


I'm the Lakeland Terrier, give me rats!

(Maltese)   Little White Dog


When I was lonely I got myself a dog

I filled my house with the sound of little paws

Now I'm so happy I found someone to love, because

My little Maltese, yeah, she's my squeeze

From Rome to Reno she's my bambino

Cruisin' the streets with my Maltese

My little white dog -


Didn't want a big dog, I just wanted small

One look at her and my heart took a fall

I tucked her in my arms and took her home, you know

She's my little Maltese, yeah she's my squeeze

From Rome to Reno she's my bambino

Cruisin' the streets with my Maltese

My little white dog -


Well I'm tellin' you she' so sweet she charms every stranger she meets

With her hair brushed to the ground and bows that hold her tresses down


Some say she's sweeter than a dove's kiss

The gentle maiden is such a gorgeous miss

Of all the gems she is the most precious

She's my little Maltese, yeah she's my squeeze,

From Rome to Reno she's my bambino

Cruisin' the streets with my Maltese

My little white dog

(Mastiff)    Mass Of Love, Joy and Pride


I do not get nervous cause I know I am safe

And darkness won't bring trouble creepin' round my gate

But I used to get worried that I could lose my hide

But I don't think anybody's gonna give it a try

Cause when I'm steppin' out with my Mastiff by my side

She's a mass of love, joy and pride


Now my dog's not so vicious as to tear you limb from limb

But she will make a prowler wish he'd never broken in

Cause there will be no warning as she pins him to the ground

And I don't think anybody's gonna mess around

Cause when I'm steppin' out and my Mastiff's by my side

She's a mass of love, joy and pride.


My dog loves everybody she can't help herself

When she's feeling good she just loves to share the wealth

And I know I'm the lucky one to have a friend so wise

I don't think anybody's gonna criticize

But when I'm steppin' out and my Mastiff's by my side

She's a mass of love, joy and pride.

(Newfoundland)   Sail Away


Along the coast of Newfoundland and off to Labrador

There is a canine lifeguard who watches from the shore

There beneath the lighthouse gazing out to sea

The strong, courageous Newfoundland patrols endlessly

Sail away, sail away, your life is in good hands

Safe in the friendship of the Newfoundland


The country's cold and rugged, the sea is rough and black

The Newfie helps the fisherman pull nets and heavy packs

If there is a shipwreck or a man overboard

His spirit and his body bring the injured back to shore

Sail away, sail away, your life is in good hands

Safe in the friendship of the Newfoundland


Far away from his land in cities and in towns

The Newfie grew so popular his numbers did abound

The gentle children's nanny or companion to his man

Strong and courageous that is the Newfoundland

Sail away, sail away, your life is in good hands

Safe in the friendship of the Newfoundland.

(Norwegian Elkhound)  Hey Ho, Circle Low


I have been companion to the Viking on the sea

And guardian of the lonely farm against its enemies

I've always been a working dog devoted to the chase

I've always had a purpose it's written in my face

Hey ho, circle low the game is in the round

Follow the call of the Norwegian Elkhound


(hey ho, circle low, catch the elk and don't let go

Hey ho round and round I am Norwegian Elkhound)


I can burn the midnight hour day after day

I stand alert, defend my herd I keep the wolves away

I love to wander with my man against the Arctic skies

And when he's blind to danger I can be his eyes

Hey ho, circle low, the game is in the round

Follow the call of the Norwegian Elkhound


(hey ho, circle low, catch the elk and don't let go

Hey ho, round and round, I am Norwegian Elkhound)



I left home from Oslo and I traveled round the earth

Wherever I am needed I can prove my worth


I told you of my working life and of my nordic traits

But oh there is a gentle side that lives to win your praise

At night when there's a full moon bright I'll rest against your feet

And listen to the stories of the Viking families

Hey ho, circle low, the game is in the round

Follow the call of the Norwegian Elkhound


(Hey ho, circle low, catch the elk and don't let go

Follow the call of the Norwegian Elkhound)

Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever


In Nova Scotia I was born and raised

Down where the little river duck dogs play

A wee gun dog from the great big sea

And none can draw a crowd like me

I've lived for years in the maritimes

I swim and bob in the salty brine

With my foxy face and white web feet

I dance for ducks to my own heartbeat


     I'm a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Dog

     I lure and I toll and retrieve

     I love my people and I love my job

     Fiddle diddle diddle dee -  (look at me)


I play on the shore with sticks and twigs

Like a happy sailor lost in a jig

But swim too close, little coot you're stuck

Cause curiosity killed the duck

Up from the blind the hunter stands

A loaded shotgun in his hands

And when the fowl drops from the sky

I bring it home with the fish and the fry

     

     Chorus


Hey ho, here we go

Play on the shoreline to and fro

Hoist the sails my hearty boys

I'm proud to be Nova Scotia's joy


I'm Canadian, red and white

My feathered tail wags in my flight

Strong and balanced, keen to work

I spring to action, always alert

And I crossed from Yarmouth to Bar Harbor

I took my games below the border

Now through the world in kennel clubs

I've joined the ranks of the pedigree mugs


     Chorus

(Old English Sheepdog)  


I drive the cattle, I drive the sheep

No wolf is ever gonna sneak one by me

I am a herding dog in fields of clover

Some call me shaggy but I prefer drover

Sheeeeeeeep - Old English Sheepdog - cattle drivin'


The way I see the world is the way I walk

Preoccupied cause I'm always taking stock

Excuse my panting I'm not out of breath

Like a fool on a hill I love to reflect

Sheeeeeeeep - Old English Sheepdog - cattle drivin'


I shuffle like a bear, I gallop and I amble

I find the wanderers caught up in the brambles


You see I'm very rich in canine history

My resume is signed by Walter Disney

I'm beatle-esque from my head to my toes

And if you paint it black Ringo has my nose

Sheeeeeeeep - Old English


I dream of heaths and dales back in England

I'm loved for my bobtail, I'm free from the taxman


Sheeeeeeeep - Old English Sheepdog

(Papillon) Butterfly


Butterfly, fly up high, for all the world to see

You sang and danced right through Renaissance and now you play for me

You light up all that's dark, come to my lap and into my heart

Butterfly, fly up high for all the world to see


For centuries back in Italy how they loved their Papillon

They crossed through Spain and they entertained

Everywhere that butterfly roamed

Small and sweet, Spaniel Petite, my little Papillon


Dear Phalene drawn to my dreams with folded silky wings

My Spaniel toy how you fly with joy and you help my spirit sing

So elegant and precious sent by the angels to enrich us

Dear Phalene drawn to my dreams on folded silky wings


Butterfly, you fly up high, my little Papillon

Pekingese


Peki-ekingese in the lap of luxury

Sleeping in the palace of kings.

Through the dynasties, the little dog Chinese,

Sleeping in the palace of kings.

\Bring him gold and jewels, the lion dog rules,

Let the golden sun shine.

He will stand his ground, never back down,

A dog of disciplined mind -


Peki-ekinese in the emperor's sleeve,

Gaze upon the city walls.

As long as you're with me, the Imperial Family,

Our strength will conquer all.

Bring him gold and jewels, the lion dog rules,

Address him with dignity.

With an air of elegance he takes the royal stance

Ruling from sea to sea -


Peki-ekingese in the emperor's sleeve

Sitting in the golden throne

If our kingdom falls, if they tear down the walls

I'll take your life with my own.


He is oriental, to me he is essential,

He will always stand by me.

No other is so regal, proud as an eagle

He will rule through eternity

Bring him gold and jewels, the lion dog rules

Let the golden sun shine.

He will stand his ground, never back down,

A dog of disciplined mind -


Peki-ekingese in the lap of luxury

Sitting in the palace of kings

Through the dynasties, the little dog Chinese,

Sitting in the palace of kings.

Sitting in the palace of kings.

She's been around for centuries

the story's often told

Into hieroglyphics and history

The writing's on the wall

And as she gazes on the prowl

The desert winds begin to howl

With eyes that follow you for miles

She's the queen of the Nile


Oh, when she flies, she trembles and sighs

And we're lost in the dust as we bathe in her blush

All the world falls hushed


He's been companion to the kings

He's loyal and true blue

Those golden rings and those pretty things

Were kept within his view

He sailed across the open sea

And soon became Malta's breed

But through her eyes he sees for miles

The queen of the nile


Oh when she flies, he trembles and sighs

And he's lost in the dust as he bathes in her blush

All the world falls hushed


Their elegance and noble stance

Will turn your head around

Their glossy coat and chiseled heads

Define the Pharaoh Hound

The guardian of ancient gods

Who came from Egypt's wandering dogs

And through her eyes you see for miles

The queen of the Nile


Oh when she flies, she trembles and sighs

And we're lost in her blush as we bathe in her blush

All the world falls hushed


She's been around for centuries,

She's been around awhile

Into hieroglyphics and history,

She's the queen of the Nile

I'm leavin' London and that pit bull ban

It's just me and my dog sneaking through the streets

Like some criminals we're runnin' from the heat.


Hey Mr. Councilman I  do understand

These dogs are trouble when they're in the wrong hands

But we pay the price, we who treat them well,

And the press keeps buildin' up this pit bull hell.


     My dog's majestic, strong and so proud

     He's been to school and stood out in the crowd

     He's my companion and so beautiful

     He can't help it he was born a pit bull -


I found my dog runnin' in the streets

He was so grateful just  to find some peace

He makes me laugh, yeah, makes me smile

Can make a bad day seem worth while


     Chorus


There goes my life in an Allied Van

I'm leavin' London and that pit bull ban

Just me and my dog, my dog and me

We'll keep on drivin' til the air is free.


(Ontario Canada passed the Pit Bull ban (and any dog that looked like it had Pit Bull in it) in 2007.  

Nancy and Joey chose to leave.)

Pit Bull Blues

(Pointer)  Pointing At Me


I've got a dog from a good bloodline

Foxhound, Greyhound some of the design

Covers the earth as fast as the wind

Stops on a dime and then the game begins.

Points at a pheasant and bobwhite quail

Sends vibrations through his bee sting tail

Yeah I got a dog as sweet as can be

Follow the Pointer cause he leads to me


I've got a dog with her head in the clouds

A muscular body and she's always so proud

She's got the power and she's got the grace

Long silky ears and a pretty dish face

She's got a coat so shiny and sleek

She's the emblem of the Kennel club elite

I've got a dog as sweet as can be

Follow the Pointer cause she's pointing at me



I've got a dog true to her breed

The only POW in history -


I've got a dog with a strong hard drive

Deep in spirit and keen of the eye

He stops the hunt in a motionless stance

Points at the bushes where the wee fowl dance

Early in the morning he's rarin' to go

Late at night he's just a couch potato

I've got a dog that's oh so sweet

Follow the Pointer cause he leads to me

Follow the Pointer cause she leads to me.

  “The Only POW in history”

Judy was the mascot of several ships in the Pacific, was captured by the Japanese in 1942 and taken to a prison camp where she met Leading Aircraftsman Frank Williams who shared his small portion of rice with her.Judy raised morale in the POW camp giving alarm when poisonous snakes, crocodiles and even tigers approached.
She was smuggled out in a rice sack when the prisoners were shipped back to Singapore, she never whimpered or betrayed her presence to the guards.


The next day the ship was torpedoed.Williams pushed Judy out of a porthole in an attempt to save her life, even though there was a 15 feet drop to the sea. He made his own escape from the ship, not knowing if Judy had survived. Frank Williams was recaptured and was sent to a new camp without news of Judy's survival. However, stories began being told of a dog helping drowning men reach pieces of debris on which to hold.Williams was giving up hope of finding Judy when she arrived in his new camp. "I couldn’t believe my eyes. As I entered the camp, a scraggy dog hit me square between the shoulders and knocked me over! I’d never been so glad to see the old girl. They spent a year in Sumatra.


"She saved my life in so many ways. The greatest way of all was giving me a reason to live. All I had to do was look at her and into those weary, bloodshot eyes and I would ask myself: What would happen to her if I died? I had to keep going. Even if it meant waiting for a miracle.


Once hostilities ceased, Judy was smuggled aboard a troopship heading to Liverpool.She was awarded the Dickin Medal, "the animals' VC", in May 1946. Her citation reads: "For magnificent courage and endurance in Japanese prison camps, which helped to maintain morale among her fellow prisoners and also for saving many lives through her intelligence and watchfulness". At the same time, Frank Williams was awarded the PDSA's White Cross of St. Giles, the highest award possible, for his devotion to Judy.

The Portuguese Water Dog


In Portugal I sail the coast

One of the crew in the fisherman's boat

I drive the fish into the nets

And dive for those I cannot catch

Yes I was born to ride the seas

It's been my job through history

The swimmer with the strong webbed feet

A Portuguese Water Dog


I play and dance, to and fro

I'll sing to you the fado

Like all of my amigos I'm

A Portuguese Water Dog


I belong to the sea

Tho some would say it belongs to me

And I would ride the highest wave

To be with you and keep you safe -

I will watch over the boats

Through any storm in my weatherproof coat

I'll hold the nets to keep them afloat I'm

A Portuguese Water Dog


I play and dance, to and fro

I'll sing to you the Fado

Like all of my amigos

The Portuguese Water Dog


But one day I was left behind

With new machines to haul the lines

I sailed the world with a broken heart

Til I was called to the old ball park -

Beyond the Bay Front Stadium

Back in a boat and prepped to swim

Hit 'em high, my Giant friends

To this Portuguese Water Dog -


Oh, take me out to the ball game

The scoreboard shows you my name

Someday I'll be in the hall of fame

I'm the Portuguese Water Dog


I play and dance to and fro

I'll sing to you the fado

Hello from San Francisco- I'm

The Portuguese Water Dog

There's Something That's So Smug About A Pug


There's something that's so smug about a Pug.

They're just as cute as a bug in a rug.

When they smile they give my heart a great big tug.


She came here from China, left the monks behind her.

By royalty she was adored, like Josephine and William of Orange,

One look at that sweet face I gave my heart, I gave it away -

There's something that's so smug about a Pug.

They're just as cute as a bug in a rug.

When they smile they give my heart a great big tug.


She's well groomed and ready to go - just you watch that little dog show.

Curls her tail on her back, my heart flutters with a Pug attack -

There's something that's so smug about a Pug.

They're just as cute as a bug in a rug.

When they smile they give my heart a great big tug.

Do the Pug!


I don't have a mansion but I've got lots of room,

I needed a dog to fill the space, something small and like a loon.

I'm so glad that she is mine now we're together all the time.


It's the nature of the dog to wiggle at the sight of a tog.

So much love for a pat my heart flutters with a Pug attack.

There's something that's so smug about a Pug.

They're just as cute as a bug in a rug.

When they smile they give my heart a great big tug.
