How Much Is That Doggie In The Window?

How much is that doggie in the window? (arf! arf!)
The one with the waggley tail
How much is that doggie in the window? (arf! arf!)
I do hope that doggie's for sale

I must take a trip to California
And leave my poor sweetheart alone
If he has a dog, he won't be lonesome
And the doggie will have a good home

I read in the paper there are robbers (roof! roof!)
With flashlights that shine in the dark
My love needs a doggie to protect him
And scare them away with one bark

I don't want a bunny or a kitty
I don't want a parrot that talks
I don't want a bowl of little fishies
He can't take a goldfish for a walk

How much is that doggie in the window? (arf! arf!)
The one with the waggley tail
How much is that doggie in the window? (arf! arf!)
I do hope that doggie's for sale
I do hope that doggie's for sale

How Much Is That Doggie In The Window?
Novelty Song sung by Patti Page 1953
#1 on the Billboard Chart for 8 weeks
The first song to reach #1 with a question mark in the song title.

*I have many happy memories of my mother singing this song to me when I was a young child.
This latest doggie embroidery that I just finished stitching has gone up on the design wall with the other Vintage pattern blocks.
Eventually these will all be placed in a quilt that I am making for my grandchildren.

How cute. Your collections would be done and quilt in no time at all. I love the vintage color you are using. Have you chosen the fabric for it?

Oh you brought back memories for me too, Nedra! This was one of my favorite songs when I was a little girl, and I remember singing the first verse (that's all I could remember when I was 6 years old!) for months on end. Another darling doggie stitched...so sweet.

I'm totally loving this doggie and all the other embroideries.

I love the embroidered quilt you showed in a previous post with the vintage animals. You should create a pattern of all the blocks you are doing. I'd buy it in a snap! Love your blog.

Good to meet you tonight. I think we have a lot in common.

This is a quilt I did last year using vintage dresser scarfs. Notice my favorite block.
