Because of You by Randy Barr | Dog Song Saturday

Randy Barr and his dog, Ernie

Kick off your weekend with a dog song and music video with Dog Song Saturday here at Talking dogs.  I know you'll love singer / musician Randy Barr's new dog song and I've got a demo for you!

I've been collecting dog songs for years now and my favorites are original song composed about dogs.  Randy's song Ernie and Me is one of my all time favorites.  Because of You promises to be another fave.  Listen to the lyrics and you may feel Randy wrote this song especially for you and your dog.

It's pretty obvious that Randy wrote this song for his beloved dog, Ernie, and I'm loving the demo's accompanying video.  

 Randy's music has been described at melodic rock with a kick and is available on cdbaby , Amazon, and iTunes.  Be sure to visit Randy's website and sample some of his other music. 
Randy is a genuine dog lover who believes in making the world a better place for them, too.  In fact, he's been working with his favorite charity, Canine Cancer Awareness, Inc for quite some time.  Canine Cancer Awareness, Inc is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness of the prevalence of canine cancer, its effects and the available treatment options.  Donations made to CCA are used for veterinary care for dogs with cancer whose families are financially unable to provide treatment.  If you make a $10 donation to Canine Cancer Awareness, Randy will make a digital recording for you - personalizing his song Ernie and Me with your own dog's name.  Get your dog song here.

Sit.  Stay.  Grab a dog to snuggle while you listen to Because of You by Randy Barr.  Fetch more dog songs at Talking Dogs.  You'll be surprised at how many we've collected.

Adopt Clyde a Doberman Mix Dog @WaysideWaifs in #KCMO

This handsome fellow is Clyde.  He's a 6 year old Doberman Pinscher / Hound mix who was rescued from a hoarding situation in New York.  Somehow he found himself at Wayside Waifs animal shelter in Kansas City, Missouri, where he's now looking for a loving forever home.

Here's Clyde's adoption story:
Hey everyone. My name is Clyde, and boy do I have a story to tell you all. So just pull up a chair, relax and let me tell you the story of a boy named Clyde.

I came to Wayside after some of my human friends rescued me from a hoarding situation in New York. So I have come a long way to find my new home, and I cannot wait to me my new family. Now you may be thinking I should be partnered with someone named Bonnie, but that is a different story and mine is much better.

I am a 6 year old Doberman Pinscher/Hound mix. Yes I am a little older, but that makes all my stories so much better. I can be a little shy at first when I meet people, but once I warm up I sure do like to get lots of love. Don't let that fool you as I am not a homebody. I love to get out, sniff, walk, run and when I am comfortable with everyone I just would like to play. 

Now, my story keeps going on as well. I can get along with other dogs and small humans, but I just need to meet them first. I just want to make sure that we all get along so our story won't end. I do know how to sit and love to get treats, but I can always learn new things as well. Also I may need to be refreshed on my house training, but that won't be a problem. I just want a new chapter and any new stories I can write, I am ready to do with you. 

I have a new lease on life and a new chance to write a new chapter in my life. I would love that chapter to include my new family. Will you be the happy ending I have always been looking for? Come see me and let's find out.

Smiles and wags,  Clyde
