How Much Is That Doggie In The Window

Wandering further afield from the town centre in Ypres, Belgium, we were amused to see a dog sitting in the window of a shoe shop.

That was our cue to start singing How much is that doggie in the window? of course. Well, we thought it was funny but the dog was not amused and took to pacing the length of the window, we were obviously dodgy customers as far as that dog was concerned.

Did you know that when Margaret Thatcher ‘did’ Desert Island Discs she said that that song was her favourite piece of music. It says a lot about her!

If you want a blast from the past have a look at Patti Page singing it.

  1. What a cute little dog! Sort of a longhaired Corgi. That song was written the year I was born (1952) and I remember having a 45 record of it when I was a child. I’m charmed by the image of you and Jack standing in front of the window singing it!

    • Joan,
      Yes and its face was a bit like a collie. That song used to be requested frequently on a Saturday morning children’s radio show, right up until the 1970s. I’m amazed that you had a record of it!
