After this morning’s Kickstart - The Lumineers’ Ho Hey - we got this text from an anonymous listener:
Ian, did anyone else's dogs go nuts when hey ho was on?
It sparked a reaction. Little did we know about doggy tastes in music. Until now:
My dog went feckin mad when Roman started lilting, Ger in Kildare
My dog goes mad at Hey Ho too, Emmet in Galway
My dog hates the theme song to The Simpsons!
My dog used to go mad at Neil Young and Bob Dylan. Realised it was the harmonica! She sings along if it's in the key of D! Have a recording on YouTube. If you search for 'Trixie sings'
My dog, Steve, used to hate the old TV3 news music. So I used to watch nuacht instead! Gib
Ian my budgie (Harry) goes nuts for Talk Talk - Paul, Laois
My dog throws herself at the TV when the Specsavers add with the sheep being sheered comes on. The music drives her mad! Margaret in Chapelizod
My dog doesn't mind music but she hates the dishwasher, washing machine, hoover and tinfoil. Also anything new that comes into the house
My dog hates the Angelus too. Howls!! Kate in Tipp
On another note, we also got a text from a listener looking for a particular item:
Would anybody out there know where I can buy The Thunder Shirt for Dogs? It comforts dogs when they are afraid or if they’re left on their own, also I believe it stops them pulling on the lead like mine does.
