I was reading about Charlie's animal song lyric contest and I wanted to post a song I wrote a few years ago. To the tune of The Big Rock Candy Mountain .

I was dreaming of the perfect dog park. A place with nice mud to roll in. Lots of dogs everywhere. No horses. No cars. Shady grass to rest in. Lots of water. Shallow places to sit around in and splash through, deeper spots for swimming. Then a big field to play chase and ball in. Lots of water and treats. Reminds me of a song I’ve heard.

In the big Dog Candy Mountain they never clip your nails

And yummy treats and water are set out in big pails

You never have to “sit” or “stay” or do anything at all

You can growl and run and have lots of fun

Where the dogs are free to chew and pee

In the big Dog Candy Mountain

In the big Dog Candy Mountain the rocks are made of bones

The trees are made of rawhide and the bushes are ice cream cones

The humans don’t have leashes and they love to play all day

There are shady trees and a nice cool breeze

You can come and go and you never hear “NO!”

In the big Dog Candy Mountain.

What's your dream dog park?
