Introducing Bojangles

This is Bojangles.


Some of you may remember him as the obsessive compulsive dog in Give A Dog A Bone, or the dog with the shameful habit in My Dirty Little Secret, and I've even talked about his great adventures at sea in Adventures at Sea, but Bojangles has a special, particular talent that I've never mentioned before.

Besides being a sweet-natured dog with a loving disposition and joyful demeanour, Bojangles is also very fond of music.  In fact, he loves music.  Whenever I sit down at the piano, or Megan picks up her guitar, he comes running to sit next to us with rapt attention.

Which has always been cute.  Until now.

You see, on a whim, Dan decided he would like to learn to play the harmonica.  I'm not really sure why, but he went out and bought himself a harmonica and began to learn to play it.

And that's when I discovered Bojangles has a secret talent.  Apparently, there is just something about a harmonica which just make his little canine heart sing.  Unable to contain himself, he breaks out in chorus whenever Dan gets out his harmonica.

Yup.  My dog can sing!

  8. Oh I love him!!! I wish my dog could sing. All he does is burp and smell bad (but he is cute even if he is stinky)

  9. I used to have a toy manchester who would sit on my lap and sing her little heart out whenever I played the harmonica. Used to totally crack me up. Such a little dog with her mouth all screwed up into an O so she could howl. That's the only time she did it, too. She and Bojangles would've made a good team.

  10. What a beautiful, talented doggie!
    All mine can do is scratch and lick non-existent testicles (which, I'll admit is a talent. IF they still existed).

  11. That's funny. He's giving it his all. And now I've got the "Mr. Bojangles" song in my head. (I assume you know that song. I can't remember who sings it. It's a fun one, though.)

    Thanks for the follow, Kara.
    Have a great week.

  15. Awww, this reminds me of the canine love of my life, Sam. Sam could sing, too, like a coyote. I just had to lift my chin and start howling and he would join right in!
