Subject: Songs about (or including) dogs
I thought we had discussed this, but do not see a message or thread about Dogs. I had dogs as the theme of may radio show yesterday. This was based on the expression "Dog days of Summer" which i found to be
connected to the time 20 days before and after the day that Sirius, the dog star rises with the Sun. Approx. July 3 to Aug 14. here are the songs i played on my radio show.

Since 2006, all playlists posted at and
2010-08-14 THE 2nd SATURDAY OF EACH MONTH FROM 2:00 TO 4:00 p. m. Pacific Time
THEME: DOG DAYS OF SUMMER – 20 days before&after Sirius, the dog Star rises&sets with the sun.
