Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

When someone loves a canine
he wouldn't contemplate a cat
Dogs would be kings
And they'd all wear crowns

If Rover's bad, you can't see it
Rover does no wrong
he will be your best friend
Til they put him down

When someone loves a canine
The vet might take your last dime
Givin' that canine just what he needs

You give him all his comforts
He sleeps out of the rain
Cause that is the way it ought to be

Well, I love you, little canine
You give me everything you have
Lovin' all our walks, short or long
Thinkin of you always makes me glad

When someone loves a canine
You wear out your soles
Walking brings you such happiness

If he's pushin your buttons
You're the last one to know
Loving eyes, so brown and sweet

When someone loves a canine
You will do it no wrong
Give him hugs and kisses, every day

Yes, when someone loves a canine
I know exactly how that feels
Cause little angel, you're my dog

When someone loves a canine....

Who says true love cannot be bought?

You left out the part about when a man loves a canine, he has a lot of poop to clean up, but this was a very good parody.

Dogs are wonderful creatures that teach us humans about unconditional love. Great parody, Royce. Reminds me of how Elizabeth Marshall Thomas (author of "The Hidden Life of Dogs") replied to the question, "Do you think dogs go to heaven?" She smiled and said, "It wouldn't be heaven without dogs."

I'm touched by the comments, and want to say to Chuck A. Spear, thanks Chuck, the reason I wrote this is because my little dog had to be at the vet all day yesterday, he was put to sleep and had a problem taken care of which could have been bad if it hadn't been caught. And it brought to mind how great a friend he is, how much he gives me, as you obviously relate to. I'm sure you would write a parody ever bit as good or better, than any I've ever done, or will do. Take care.

Love it! I've had Bingo in the family for nearly 12 years and she rules the roost here. I know exactly what you speak of, and wouldn't have it any other way!

Royce; Thanks for the kind words! I hope your doggie is doing O-K. Dogs are just such loving, wonderful creatures.....and taking a good walk with a great dog is the closest thing to paradise that we'll ever experience in this life! -Rich (a.k.a Chuck A. Spear)

My weak point...widdle doggies. Brought to mind my favorite dog that I had for 11 years and had to put to sleep. I put his picture on my website too. All you say is true...we do anythig for them, even run up high vet bills. 5's

Royce, This line is so very good: "If he's pushin your buttons You're the last one to know Loving eyes, so brown and sweet".

Should show this to my wife, we are talking about getting a dog for the rainy areas, er I mean backyard.

nice song
Stuart McArthur - March 03, 2005 - Report this comment
excellent, Royce - our dog got run over at 2 minutes to midnight New Years Eve, and left a far bigger hole in our family than we would have thought - personality-wise, presence-wise, they approach human, and our dog was very emotional too, which made him more so - a NYE party ruined, but one that we'll never forget - 555

You are right that if he is yours he can do no wrong. By the way, I love both dogs and cats.

Aww, Royce... may your small one rest in peace. But there is always a new pup waiting to have a good home. Is there a sweeter way to wake up in morning than a cold and moist muzzle poking on your cheek?

Susanna...I think Royce literally meant "put to sleep"...I think he's still with us...
