Dog Song Saturday: Hard Road Motorcycle Rescue Dog

It's Saturday already and time for another dog song from For Love of a Dog.   I don't know about you, but after last Saturdays' song (The Puppy Mill Song - A State of Misery), I'm ready for something that makes me smile and my toe tap.

Hard Road is an original song written and performed by Steve Azar.  He wrote this song to tell the story of a friend who rescued a dog and, by doing that, rescued himself.   The video features the rescue dog, Spirit, riding in the sidecar of his owner's motorcycle and it's pretty dog-gone cute.

As Spirit's owner notes:  "You may have seen dogs doing tricks on shows like David Letterman and even a dog riding a skateboard, but that's not what this is about.  My rescue dog Spirit is my best friend and my true partner in crime.  Support animal rights."

You can follow their journey together at   When you fetch that website you'll find a thoughtful commentary on their many miles of travel together, plus some beautiful photography.  (Love that "Bite Me" helmet the dog is wearing!)

So, grab a dog.  Sit.  Stay.  Relax and enjoy Hard Road by Steve Azar.  If you want to add this to your dog song playlist, you'll find Hard Road at iTunes.
Fetch more dog songs at Talking Dogs and listen to a few, too, right here.  You really should scroll down below today's dog song and check out some barking good dog blogs, because today is a Pet Blogger Hop.

  1. A familiar story- how many of us can also say we were rescued by a dog? I know Jen can.


Go ahead... bark at us!
