ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hello dog lover. I guess you found me by Googling “songs about dogs” online. My name is Kirk Olsen and I love dogs. I’m not going to pretend to be someone else writing a review of this music and talking about myself in the third person. It may sound boastful but I think my songs are pretty good. I tried to get inside my dogs’ heads and imagine what they would say if they could talk. In fact the first dog song I wrote was “If My Dog Could Talk”. I was living with my dog, Murphy, in a cramped apartment, in New York city. I was playing my guitar, probably working on a song I never finished, when I noticed Murphy had as sad a look on his face as a dog can have. I was pretty sure if he could talk he would say “Please, please, stop singing, put down that guitar, and let’s go outside and play.” So I wrote a song about it. Eventually I wrote eleven more songs inspired by Murphy, his pal Buster, and other dogs I have met along the way. I am very proud of these songs. I think they speak the truth about the most wonderful animal on the planet. I am forever amazed at the unconditional love, dedication, enthusiasm, and joy our canine companions give us. And as a wise man once said “I wish I were half the man my dog thinks I am.” I could go on and on but, even now, as I write this, I’m thinking I should get off my butt, grab a tennis ball, and go play fetch with my dog. Before I go I‘d like to thank all the people that have taken the time to write the wonderful reviews below, and to thank my wife, Lucy, for her love and support of this project, and, most of all, to thank Murphy and Buster who live on in my heart and are still the stars of this album as they float around in that blue raft on their album cover. Sincerely, Kirk Olsen www.dogsongs.net

I LOVE this CD. Every song is a winner.
I love every song on here. It really it a feel good CD especially for dog lovers alike. Only wish I had known about it sooner. Hope there will be more songs and CD out soon for dogs. It is honestly one of my favorites of all time. Worth every penny and then some.

Great CD to use for dog rescue groups holding fundraising events
I was looking for "dog songs" to play at our dog and cat rescue group events. (AZRESCUE). We are holding our 3rd Annual Bowl-A-Rama in August and are putting together fund-raising events to raise the much needed money for our cat and dog care.

Thank you Kirk for your witty lyrics, great sense of humor and wonderful voice.

Just What I Was Looking For
My Yorkshire Terrier and I are taking FreeStyle Dance (yes doggie dancing). I have been looking for the perfect song for a routine - I Wanta Be A Circus Dog fits the bill. Lindsey is little and also does lots of circus tricks so thank you for putting this CD together.

The entire CD is fun and uplifting and nicely done.

Christopher Kent

Joyful, beautifully produced, very musical -- a real treat!
This is a great CD, even if you don't have a dog! The music is lovely, the production is first-class, and the lyrics are in turns funny, insightful and heart-warming. (Check out the video at Kirk's website!) If you love a dog (and even if you don't), you'll be glad you bought this album!

Melinda Barnard

Doggone great!!!!!
Everytime I meet another dog lover I end up giving them this CD. It is joyful, funny and sad, and it always makes me feel like I just hugged my dogs...when you go to the beach you can always tell who can do the dog beach boogie!

Suzette

It was just what I was looking for.
I will soon need to do a presentation at my place of employment on the pet therapy program that I am helping to develop. I plan to use this CD during pre-presentation, and breaks, etc. I love the songs and am sure that the other adults will find them amusing, too. It was just what I was looking for.

Natalie

Entertaining all the way through!
Every song on this CD was fun and entertaining. I had written a humorous 10-minute play about dogs and needed to find some music to open the performances. This was perfect; I had a difficult time deciding which song to use because there were so many that were wonderful. Even now that the play is over, we're still listening to the songs and singing along.

Wonderful Music and Words
Two weeks ago we had to send our faithful companion Rommel, our 14-1/2 year old German Shepard, to doggy heaven. This music will be put on a DVD slide show with all of Rommel's pictures (almost 700 of them) as a remembrance of him for us and all our children and grandchildren.

Debra Schneiderman

Just what I was looking For
I have been looking for some amusing dog music to build a Free-Style Group routine for our Wag Time Dancers to perform at Nursing Homes and our local Humane Society Benefits. Your songs will not only be entertaining to the audiences, but also have some good beat and many move options for our dogs to dance to.
