Does anyone have theme songs for their Beagles? As crazy as this may seem, my wife likes to create a theme song for them. She also creates all the nicknames.

Cleo's song (song adapted from I want a Hippopotomus for Christmas)

Cleo is the baby of the family
And we love her very very much
She's the baby that we love
And she comes from up above
Cleo is the baby this I know...
Cleo is the baby of the family
And we love her very very very much

Tucker's song (adapted from 'Allouetta)

Tucka-lucka
Tucka-lucka-weeki
Tucka-lucka, tucka weeki woo
Tucka-lucka weeki woo
Tucka-lucka weeki woo
Tucka luck
Weeki woo
Ooohhhh
Tucka-lucka
Tucka-lucka-weeki
Tucka-lucka, tucka weeki woo

Silly isn't it.

What we do for our furkids.

Ummm, yes, we do. Several. I would be afraid to disclose this to anyone else... I am so glad we are not the only ones! For Moosie we don't really have a unique song, just Bad to the Bone - which fits him really well. For Popcorn, it is Brown Eyed Girl. Again, it fits her really well. But for Booker, probably because she was our first, we made up our own song long ago and still sing it to her sometimes - it isn't based on anything else so you would have to hear me sing it to hear the tune (although that probably wouldn't be much help because by all accounts I cannot carry a tune). But it is basically a lullaby and it is sung really softly to her when she is lying in bed:

Little beagle. Baby beagle.
We love you. We love you.
Little beagle. Baby beagle.
We think you're just swell.

(I know - don't give up our day jobs!)

But then more recently we have come up with a catchy little ditty that we are still working on that celebrates all of the three - called We Took the Beagles to Hawaii. Not that ANY of us have ever been to Hawaii!

We took the beagles to Hawaii
For a luau by the sea!
Booker played the ukulele
And watched them roast the big piggy.
Moosie caused an uproar
When he peed on Chief Tiki
Popcorn started howling
At the waves of Waikiki.
We took the beagles to Hawaii
For a luau by the sea!!

YES!!! Ruby has her own song. It's called For Me!! It's derived from the attitude that she has (and most beagles have) towards food and anything else that comes into the house, or gets her attention. If she sees it, she thinks it's for her. We used to talk about that, in her brain, she's always saying For me? For me? But over time realized that it's not a question, it an assertion. By default, (and unless told otherwise), everything is for her. -- For me!! For me!! No question marks! And so, it developed into a song. In my mind, I picture the melody of the music in the Wizard of Oz when Toto runs away (don't ask me where my brain pulled that one)...

For me, for meee!
Everything's for me!
even if it's not, it's still for me!

For me, for meee!
Everything's for me!
even if it's yours, it's still for me!

For me, for meee!
Everything's for me!
even if it's [insert name here]'s, it's still for me!

FOR MEEEEEEE!

Simple lyrics, but it never gets old. If Ruby had her own musical, or if real life magically turned into a musical, like on that Buffy episode, this would be her song! Haha! We probably sing this every day. And we sing it in the high pitched female voice that we think is in her head. Or we just scream For meeeeee!

Now mine are different from my husbands. For Jasmine I always sing to her:
I like to wag it wag it
You like to wag it wagit
We like to wag it wag it
WAG IT!

I was thinking about it a little more when I was walking Chloe just now.... but the only thing that would come out naturally for me to sing to her will probably be in Hebrew.... so I won't share


What I do find myself sing when I clip her nails or something that I need to calm her down is Tom Jones' She's a Lady... don't know why

whenever I try to get Rocky excited I'll chant:

Rocky...Rock.Rocky.Rocky.Rock.Rocky over and over

he just looks at me like I'm an idiot most of the time


I think a true theme song would be Eye of the Tiger the theme from Rocky

I've adapted the words to the dreidel song to be about Bones:

Boneses, Boneses, Boneses,
I made you out of Bones.

It kind of peters out after that, but there you have it!

Poor Spock, no theme song of his own. So sad!

well i dont know if it is a theme song but sometimes when arty wakes up in the middle of the night with his reverse sneezing I pet him and sing to him until i goes away. His song? a dream is a wish your heart makes from cinderella (disney version).. except i replace every other word with Arty. Like this:

A dream is an Arty, your Arty makes, when Arty's fast asleep...

I thought it would drive him nuts to hear his name so many times but he seems to put him to rest and sleep pretty well, hahaha

Cleo had a hard time calming down at night to go to sleep and I used to sing to her to relax her. I would just make up stupid songs or just sing any song that pops into my mind. I tried singing one of the songs to Tucker and my wife got mad because that was Cleo's song. She's been gone 3 years now and it is still hard to hear those songs.

Another non dog specific song we have is Fleas on the dog. It is sung to the tune of Felize Navidad.

Fleas on the dog
Fleas on the dog
Fleas on the dog, go get Advantage and put it on
(Repeat)
I want to wish you a flealess Christmas
I want to wish you a flealess Christmas
I want to wish you a flealess Christmas, from the bottom of my dog
(Repeat)

My wife and I are both singers so we have a lot of music around the house.

The Bagel's Favorite:

A hunting we will go, a hunting we will go
Heigh ho, the dairy-o, a sniffing I will go
A hunting we will go, a hunting we will go
We'll find chipmunk and dig his home up
Until Bob makes me go!

A hunting we will go, a hunting we will go
Heigh ho, the dairy-o, a sniffing I will go
A hunting we will go, a hunting we will go
I'll catch a frog and shack him in the bog
Until Bob makes me let him go!

Somewhat predictably my Ella get Rhianna's Umbrella all the time

Ella, Ella, Ella, Ella, eh eh

I have a SERIOUS record collection from 25 years of collecting and nearly 20 of playing in pubs and clubs. Perhaps I should dive into Ella Fitzgerald's back catalogue but one from my very early DJing days seems strangely appropiate - Home Wreckers - Jackin' (I'm sure you can all guess why!)

Well, Bruce Springsteen has a song called Jersey Girl that I kind of like to sing. But, Jersey has her own song I sing when she gets her belly rubs...

Ohhhh, we give the Beagle belly rubs
on the Beagle belly freckles,
give the Beagle Belly rubs on the Beagle belly freckles,
I give the Beagle belly rubs on the Beagle belly freckles,
all day long.

Not very creative...I know.
