Puppies & Dogs

That Doggie in the Window?

How much is that doggie in the window? (Bark! Bark!)
The one with the waggely tail
How much is that doggie in the window? (Bark! Bark!)
I do hope that doggie's for sale
I must take a trip to California
And leave my poor sweetheart alone
If he has a dog he won't be lonesome
And he doggie will have a good home
How much is that doggie in the window? (Bark! Bark!)
The one with the waggely tail
How much is that doggie in the window? (Bark! Bark!)
I do hope that doggie's for sale
I read in the papers there are robbers
With flashlights that shine in the dark
My love needs a doggie to protect him
And scare them away with one bark
I don't want a bunny or a kitty,
I don't want a parrot that talks,
I don't want a bowl of little fishies;
He can't take a goldfish for walks.
How much is that doggie in the window? (Bark! Bark!)
The one with the waggely tail
How much is that doggie in the window? (Bark! Bark!)
I do hope that doggie's for sale.

Bob Merril


Oh where, oh where has my little dog gone?
Oh where, oh where can he be?
With his ears so short and his tail so long,
Oh where, oh where is he?


I Had A Poodle

I had a little poodle (clenched fist for poodle)
His coat was silver grey
One day I thought I'd bathe him
To wash the dirt away. (scrub fist)
I washed my little poodle
Then dried him with a towel. (pat fist)
My poodle seemed to like his bath
He didn't even growl.


Two Little Puppy Dogs

Two little puppy dogs (hold up two fingers.)
Lying in a heap, (let two fingers fall down.)
Soft and wooly (pet two fingers with opposite hand.)
And fast asleep. (lay hands against the side of your face and close eyes.)
Along came a pussycat (hold up one finger from opposite hand and move toward the two little fingers.)
Creeping near, "Meow",
She cried right in their ear.
Two little puppy dogs (hold up two fingers)
After one cat, (two fingers chase the one finger).
Did you ever play tag like that? (point to the children)


Rags

I have a dog his name is Rags,
He eats so much his tummy sags.
His ears flip flop and his tail wig wags,
And when he walks, he walks zig zag!
He goes flip-flop, wig-wag, zig-zag!
He goes flip-flop, wig-wag, zig-zag!
He goes flip-flop, wig-wag, zig-zag!
I love Rags and he loves me!


Frisky's Doghouse

This is Frisky's doghouse,
This is Frisky's bed,
Here is Frisky's bowl of kibble,
So that he can be fed.
Frisky has a collar,
With his name upon it too,
Take a stick and throw it,
And he'll bring it back to you.


My Puppy

My puppy has a doghouse,
just outside my door.
He licks me when I pet him,
and wags his tail for more.
He's always there beside me,
no matter what I do.
My puppy is my special friend,
and a family member, too.


My Puppy

I like to pat my puppy (make puppy with one fist, pat)
He has such nice soft fur (pat puppy)
And if I don't pull his tail (pull tail)
He won't say "Grrrr!" (make angry face)


My Puppy

It's funny
my puppy
knows just how I feel.

When I'm happy
he's yappy
and squirms like an eel.

When I'm grumpy
he's slumpy
and stays by my heel.

It's funny
my puppy
knows such a great deal.


My Dog

My dog listens when I talk
He goes with me for a walk
When I sleep, he sleeps too.
He does everything that I do.
When my sister/brother/friend makes me mad,
He hangs his head and looks so sad.
He cuddles up and licks my hand
And tells me he can understand.


There was a wee lassie called Maggie,
Whose dog was ENORMOUS and shaggy;
The front end of him
Looked vicious and grim...
But the tail end was friendly and waggy!


The Dog Song

I see a dog.
The dog sees me.
I like the dogs.
The dogs like me.
Big white dogs.
One, two, three.
I like the dogs
and the dogs like me.
