Happy New Year!  I hope 2018 is going well for you so far.  I always find January to be a bit of a bleak month.  Christmas and New Year are over, I’ve eaten too much, it is dark and spring is a long way away.  So, to cheer myself up I made dog and cat playlists on Spotify.  Music is uplifting and I love dogs and cats, so it is a great combo!

Each song has dog or cat in the title.  Some are actually about dogs or cats, perhaps some are not, but they are great tunes.

Just in case you are feeling the January blues, I thought I would share the playlists with you.  Last week I wrote about New Year’s Resolutions for Pet Owners.  Perhaps you could use these dog and cat playlists as soundtracks for your resolutions – walking, running, spending quality time with your pet. There is a good mix of genres, so hopefully there is something for everyone.  If you use Spotify, you can link directly to the dog and cat playlists.

So whether you like to walk or run to music, dance in your kitchen while you cook or jive while you drive, enjoy the music!

Dog and Cat Playlists

Without further ado, here are the Barks & Squeaks dog and cat playlists.

Dog Playlist

Dogs are epic!  They have inspired many artists to write songs.  This is a small collection of some of my favourites.  We start off with a bit of classic rock before mixing up the decades and the genres.  Watch out for the tear-jerker at the end of the playlist!

Cat Playlist

Cats are cool!  There is no shortage of songs about cats, inspired by cats or just with cat in the title.  Like the dog playlist, there is a mix up of decades and genres.  ‘Walking my Cat called Dog’ caused a little bit of a debate about which list it belongs to.  It is actually about cat whose name was Dog that used to go out for walks… So, officially he is a cat and therefore the song ended up on the cat playlist.
