Uncle Charlie and his dog Teddy, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band
Shep,(by Ramblin; Jack Elliot)
a bluegrass song about a dog that came to church
after his master was buried in the churchyard,
Greg Brown's "Like a Dog"
Utah Phillips has a song about a dog by a train yard
Gotta stop kickin' my dog around...

the theme song to Lassie t.v. show...whistled...I can hear it now..
and perhaps music from any of Disney's doggie flix
Grey friars' Bobby,
Old yeller,

Mudcat search seems not to be working again, but if you google "dog songs", you'll find an old and rather complete thread here:

Songs About Dogs

The recent thread started on this topic mainly rehashes the titles already listed in the old thread--no need to go through the exercise a third time.

Will some Mudelf kindly close this thread, merge open mike's message into the old thread and delete this message?

How Much Is That Doggy in the Window? by Bob Merrill

Where O Where Has My Little Dog Gone?

Im' Looking Over My Dead Dog Rover

Dogs of War - by Pink Floyd

Three Dog Night

Gone to the Dogs - by KT TUNSTALL

Who Let the Dogs Out? Woof Woof by Anslem Douglas

Big Black Dog - by Humble Pie

Space Dog - by Torri Amos

And could anyone leave out "Dog Sh*t" by the Woo Tang Clan

Such memorable lines as:

Callin me a dog, well leave a dog alone
Cause nothin can stop me from buryin my bones
in the backyard, of someone else's house
Ol Dirt Dog, but I'm not dog out
Here comes Rover, sniffin at your ass
But pardon me bitch, as I shit on your grass
That means hoe, you been shit-ted on!
I'm not the first dog that's shitted on your lawn

The recent thread was about a party for dogs, so there will be a lot of repetition if this thread continues! And there was a long one with lots of links in 2007.
