I Want a Little Doggie
Your mind totally went there, didn’t it?
For me, Lena Horne‘s “I Want a Little Doggie” is a Christmas song. I remember being alone at Christmas, wondering whether I would ever be part of a ‘two.’ I hugged my dog Jazzmine every year. Showered her with gifts for not leaving me alone during the holidays.
Until she left me for good. Sixteen years was enough for a precocious Boston Terrier.
I still miss her. No dog will ever be her equal. I listen to Lena sing about her doggie, and I’m right back with Jazz. Somehow, she dances at my feet every single time I hear it.
Do you have a favorite holiday song that has nothing to do with the holidays?
