My mom would sing Kitty in a Basket while tucking us in at night. Our rescue dog, #McBuck, has shown an amazing amount pf personality and when he started sleeping in a basket, well, the childhood song needed a few tweaks.

If there’s someone in the city,
Doesn’t want a big puppy,
Tell them put the big puppy in a basket.
Leave the basket outside our door
And we’ll love the big puppy forever more.
Wrap the puppy warm,
You never know about a storm,
And we don’t want a big puppy with kennel coughs.
We’ll hug him and we’ll squeeze him,
Never, never tease him,
Want a big puppy in a basket.
Don’t matter ’bout the color of his nosie

Don’t care if he’s a lab or a pointer.
Don’t have to be as wonderous as a Rebos,
And I promise not to laugh that he has a broken tail.
If there’s someone in the city
Doesn’t want a big puppy
Tell them put the big puppy in a basket.
Leave the basket outside our door
And we’ll love the big puppy forever more.
Savin’ up a dollar
And we’re gonna buy a collar
If he’s lookin’ for a home, please won’t you ask it
Don’t want a little tisket,
Or a little tasket,
Just a big puppy in a basket.
We’ll warm his food and dress him as a Cowboy.

We’ll make a bed for him in Daddy’s shoe.
And if he starts in crying for his Mamma,
He can bring along his Mamma
And his sisters and brothers too.
Don’t have to be as pretty as a posey,
And I promise not to laugh if he has a broken tail.
If there’s someone in the city
Doesn’t want a big puppy,
Tell them put the big puppy in a basket.
Leave the basket outside my door
And we’ll love the big puppy forever more.
Wrap the puppy warm,
You never know about a storm,
And I don’t want a big puppy with kennel coughs.
We’ll hug him and we’ll squeeze him,
Never, never tease him,
Want a big puppy in a basket.
We’ll hug him and we’ll squeeze him,
Never, never tease him,
Want a big puppy in a basket.

Bump! Bump!
