Feed Jake by Pirates of the Mississippi | Dog Song Saturday

Kick off your weekend with Dog Song Saturday here at Talking Dogs.  Today we have a mellow country ballad.  

Feed Jake was released in 1991 by Pirates of the Mississippi.  Written by Danny "Bear" Mayo, the song's chorus tells the story of a childhood dog named Jake.

Named to the Rolling Stone magazine's 40 Saddest Country Songs of All Time list, they note this song evokes:
"... the image of a man kneeling down to deliver the "Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep" bedtime prayer - pleading someone care for his best friend, a dog named Jake, if his owner should die before he wakes."
Feed Jake is accompanied here by a video tribute to Larson the Red Dog. 

Sit. Stay. Relax and enjoy Feed Jake by Pirates of the Mississippi.  Fetch more dog songs and music videos at Talking Dogs. You'll be surprised at how many we've collected!
