Dog For Hire

This song was written for my dog Raina, now deceased. She was beautiful and regal in her way. About three months before she died she became very ill and we thought she was already on her last legs. She was t least 10 years old and dying when out of nowhere whe gave birth to a single live puppy. We named him Luther and you can see a picture of him at a young age.

Raina, she had a good kick at the cat 3 months later the tumour on her belly had grown to the size of a fist. I cried like a baby and held her as the vet injected her and she was dead before she hit the floor. Luther will be 3 in May.

I have a dog she's a nice dog
Never trained to attack
She's as pretty as pretty gets
When you've got that much hair on your back
Though her love is unconditional and heavensent
My dog she eats for free and she doesn't pay any rent

Dog for Hire

There's gotta be a market for laying on the floor
And cleaning dishes with her face and barking at the door
I'm gonna build her a harness and a wagon she can pull
All the kids around the neighbourhood for a dollar

Dog for Hire

Raina, she had a good kick at the catShe is everything I could hope for from a brain her size
She's steadfast loyal and true
She takes my place in bed still warm from where my body lays
For lack of something else to do
I'm gonna get for her a pack-sack saddle-bag
Might have to sew it on my own
I think if she's too broke from week to week to buy the food
Least she can do for me is carry it home

Dog for hire

I'm gonna send her to Korea to teach some ESL
She knows thirty words of English and she knows them very well
Monosyllables for the most part, what more could anybody need
Than sit, heel, come, stay, in, out, down, lay, quit, paw, pee, hey
Kiss, don't eat me
