“First Dog Song”

Sims Wyeth — intrigued by the prospect of a shelter dog moving into the White House — has penned a song called, simply enough, “First Dog Song.”

An excerpt:

“Now I’m in the shelter, sleeping on cement.
One day I’m gonna wake up in the house of the president.”

Wyeth is a former actor and educator who founded his own public speaking consultant company, Sims Wyeth & Co., in 1995.

He sent us email this week, notifying us he had posted his song on YouTube.

Wyeth is the owner of a one-year-old standard Poodle named Little Bear, who can be seen at the beginning and end of the video. His song is dedicated to his first dog, Roscoe.

This is a great campaign for shelter dogs, as well as for the President. After all, compared to the street and/or the hard working shelters, a loving home is as good as the White House. The song is well penned and sweet. Thanks for sharing it!

I had the thought, too, that they’re ALL dogs of destiny once they get happy homes.

It’d be nice if the song made it on to the radio. It’s a keeper.
