Dog Getting Older

A listener requested info on finding the Jonathan Richman song we used in our “Dog Tales” HV Hour. It’s off a kids-songs compilation, Colours Are Brighter, now out-of-print. So I hope Jonathan don’t mind us posting his “Our Dog Is Getting Older Now” (2:30 mp3):

Thanks for posting Our Dog is Getting Older Now. I first heard this song on Hearing Voices after my son had rescued a pit bull off the mean streets of Phoenix. I’d been very nervous about the dog due to all the bad press the breed gets but then I heard the love in the lyrics about this aging pit bull. I gave my son’s new buddy, Garfield, a second look. He’s as sweet and devoted a dog friend as you could ever want. I’m glad Jonathan Richman created a positive note for this much maligned breed.
