Because you’re all so nice I thought I’d share this with you. I lost my lovely dog Ramsay (an English Springer Spaniel) about a year ago. I’d had him for 14 years. To help me deal with the anniversary I wrote a little, quite silly song. It’s basically a song sung by a dog to its owner, so it’s a valentine from the dog to it’s mum/dad. Like I say it’s a bit daft, like a spaniel, and I fluff it a bit because it can make me a bit emotional. Hope you like it, the dog owners will hopefully get it will try and include a picture of the dog in question too. (Backing vocal credit to Ziggy as usual)
Jeez Liz got me all teary our GSD Sophie is 13 in June and the clocks ticking. Springers are barking mad and bundles of fun, my daughter had a couple that sadly passed too early, so brought back memories.
A lovely song with lovely lyrics, played and sung with love. Thank you.
Thanks, @TheMadman_tobyjenner we really suffer when we lose them, but only because they’re so wonderful when we have them xx
Hey Liz, that was great. Using music to do something meaningful to you or someone you know is always something special.
Kudos to you
It reminded me of a song a friend of mine in a band wrote Dumb Animals
How can you not love dogs?
Well done. I like originals a lot and this is no exception. Such a sad subject, yet your love shines through and brightens up the effort. Nice play and vox make this a special offering…
All the best and keep rock’n,
What a lovely boy was your Ramsay and what a smile and tear making anniversary song he’s written for you Liz. I imagine just posting his picture would have bought back memories. Thankyou for sharing his handsome face with us.
They have a way of worming into the hidden corners of our hearts and never leaving.
… and then we damn well go and adopt another one or two from the rescue shelter. After I had my last four footed euthanized two years ago, my heart turned to stone and I made the decision to have no more. For the first time in my entire life I have no animals. It’s very strange, sort of numb, but my the house stays so much cleaner.
Wow this is absolutely beautiful!
Your music gives me a little bit of a Joni Mitchell vibe!!
Loved it, Liz, all the love comes through, both in your song and the photo.
Thanks for sharing with us.
Yep. So far I’m sticking with my bird. House is too quiet with no animals at all but Ziggy could possibly live 30 years .
Wonderful singing and playing Liz, and a great original song. Brought tears to my eyes. I’m sure all the dog owners will get it. We lost our 14 year old Lab just over a year ago and we’re still trying to adjust to life without him. Thanks for sharing
That was wonderful Liz. Loved the lyrics and a nice bit of playing.
Dogs bring so much joy into your life and it’s horrible when you lose them, so thank you for sharing that.
A really nice song, warm and heartfelt. And your voice is great.
I’m a dog lover too - we have two border collies, both 15. Also have two cats. The cats are great pets but the dogs are family. We’ve had them since they were puppies. Such a huge part of our lives.
OMG what a beautiful song, very heartfelt and sincere plus played and sung very nicely!
I really don’t know what else to say, I’ve been through this with my Cat Sam, a Ginger Tom who was taken from me when he was only 21/2 years old with Cancer; 🥲🥲🥲
Oh that’s really sad when you lose them young . Ramsay was 14 and 4 months, a good age for his breed, I’d had him from 9 weeks.
That was really nice Liz, I am sure your dog would be all happy with tails flying around while hearing it as it was great.
Absolutely fabulous, Liz. I’m a dog lover and totally get it. We have two yorkies, both 4 years old, and they would love to catch the neighbourhood squirrel.
Oh wow! Watery eyes before I even heard your video. Just from your intro. Well played and sang. Love your embellishments; and where you suddenly muted. Hehe, I thought the squeaks were from a cleverly placed dog’s squeaky toy. Way to go, Liz and Ziggy! And sorry for your loss on this sad anniversary. Handsome Ramsay❤️. Writing a song such as this can be quite therapeutic. It helped me with my grief when I lost my 14 yr old Yorkie, Andy.
Did you share your song? I’d like to hear it x
Thank you, Liz. I sent it to you in your messages.
