How Much is That Doggie in the Window?

play music pause music
mute music

How much is that doggie in the window? (arf! arf!)
The one with the waggley tail
How much is that doggie in the window
? (arf! arf!)
I do hope that doggie's for sale

I must take a trip to California
And leave my poor sweetheart alone
If he has a dog, he won't be lonesome
And the doggie will have a good home

How much is that doggie in the window? (arf! arf!)
The one with the waggley tail
How much is that doggie in the window?
(arf! arf!)
I do hope that doggie's for sale

I read in the paper there are robbers (roof! roof!)
With flashlights that shine in the dark
My love needs a doggie to protect him
And scare them away with one bark

I don't want a bunny or a kitty
I don't want a parrot that talks
I don't want a bowl of little fishies
 (Try our Goldfish Maze!)
He can't take a goldfish for a walk

How much is that doggie in the window? (arf! arf!)
The one with the waggley tail
How much is that doggie in the window?
(arf! arf!)
I do hope that doggie's for sale
I do hope that doggie's for sale


Note:
Arf! Arf! sounds like a small dog.
Roof! Roof! sounds like a bigger dog.

For parents
Children raised in a house with two or more dogs or cats during the first year of life may be less likely to develop allergic diseases as compared with children raised without pets, according to a study supported by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. Read a summary of the study or the full article, which was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
For kids

It’s not fur, hair, or feathers that cause people to be allergic to their pets! Instead, proteins from pet skin or in your pet’s spit are often the reason. If you or a family member is allergic to Fido or Tabby, there are ways to help control the worst effects.
