Carson suffers from a serious case of melophilia. Geeking out on her favorite music artists is her guilty pleasure.


What's the biggest thing you've done for your dog? Skipped an important event to check on your furry companion? Bought a gazillion toys knowing full well they'll end up destroyed? We've all done some pretty nice things for our favorite four-legged companion, but plenty of musicians took things to a whole new level they created pup-inspired hits!

It's fascinating to think that dogs are the inspiration behind some popular songs across different genres. The next time you spend time with your furry friend, consider listening to these songs about dogs.
