My Favorite Things

(to the tune of My Favorite Things from The Sound of Music)


Bunnies and squirrels that I watch with wonder,

Air vents and cool fans that I can lie under,

Raiding the cat box for a tasty treat,

These are a few of my favorite things.


Warm days spent chewing on socks made of cotton,’

Rolling in dead things or garbage quite rotten,

Colorful fire hydrants covered in pee,

These are a few of my favorite things!


Pooing in the middle of intersections,

Lunging at bushes to make a connection,

Munching on cookies that make my heart sing,

These are a few of my favorite things!!


When it’s too hot

For my daycare

And I’m feeling sad,

I simply remember my favorite things,

And then I don’t feel……. so bad!

  1. Now THAT’s inspiring! Who knew you’re such a poetic pup? I’m envious cuz I don’t get to pee on hydrants of *any* colour. There aren’t any where we live. And nobody leaves socks around for me to chew, or lets me out where I can find those dandy dead things to roll in. But I have my very own cookie jar — it says “Biscotti” on it, altho’ it’s full of specialty biscuits that a friend of my mom’s always buys for me. And I have my very own toy box, too, full of stuffies and chiewies that I love. And my own photo album. And a nice red collar and matching leash I get to wear whenever we go travelling. I guess my life isn’t so deprived… but yellow and blue hydrants??? WooWooWoo!!

  2. Your favorite things sound like they make you want to do The Dance of Joy! At our house, the people call rolling in dead things “being a Primal Pup!” The first time Laurence rolled on a water-logged dead rat at the park, it was a huge event! It got written up in his puppy journal even.

    We don’t really understand what that cat box thing is about though. We try really hard to cover everything up, but maybe it’s like buried treasure to dogs? In that case, happy to oblige!

  3. A beautiful song! I like it better than the original too. Wouldn’t it be great if they filmed a remake of The Sound of Music with animal actors instead of humans?
