List Rules Songs that are about man's best friend, the dog.

Man’s best friend – our warmest, fuzziest thoughts come to mind when we think about our dogs. They’re part of our family, the one that is always the very first to greet us when we come home, the one who patiently sleeps by our beds all night waiting for the moment we wake up, the one we can always count on to be there for us when no one else can be found. Pet pooches have even inspired many songs.

This list features the best songs about our dogs. They are songs that were inspired by the furry friends of the artists who wrote them. Each song on this list either was written because of the emotions of owning a dog or mentions the word “dog” or “puppy” within the song itself. They span genres, artists, and time periods.

The list contains songs like, “I Love My Dog” by Cat Stevens, “Black Dog” by Led Zeppelin, “Martha My Dear” by The Beatles and “Cracker Jack” by Dolly Parton.

Vote up your favorite doggy track or add one you love that isn't already on the list. Hopefully the songs on this list will remind you of your special furry friend, and who knows – maybe your dog will even dance to the music with you!
