Ray, Brad and Dear Elena. Wonderful to see you all. :)

The Singing Dogs ! My Mum bought that record. It has us fooled - we thought he'd trained the dogs to bark to the music. We were simple folk. :D

The actual recordings of dogs barking that were used for that recording were from 4 dogs.

Their names were Dolly, Pearl, Caesar and King. :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow:

No extra points for knowing the dogs' names, Brad. Where do you get these things ? :bow:

Thamks Laurie, Phil and Mark. Can we get 20 ? :headphones:

Things are getting desperate, so we'll allow U.K. Hits also to try to reach the 20. ;)

NEW GAME !!! Let's get away from names for a while. How about:

SONGS BEFORE 1980 WITH FRUIT(S)IN THEIR NAMES THAT WERE HITS IN THE U.S. OR THE U.K. :happybanana:

Can we get 20 ? And of course, thinking of them yourself without googling is so much more satisfying. Call me old-fashioned. :headphones:
