song for Chloe

Help us sing a song to our Beagle, Chloe.

My wife and I love to talk and sing for our Beagle, Chloe. This morning my wife started a new song, but we can't finish it. Can you help us come up with a final line?

(to the tune of I'm a Little Teacup)

I'm a little beagle, short and cute
Here is my tail and here is my snoot (like any beagle, she's got a crazy nose working all the time).

When I get all riled up, hear me snort (when Chloe get's excited, she does this little retrograde sneeze/snort thing, which apparently is very common among beagles).


A lot of things rhyme with snort, but we can't think of anything funny/appropriate. Any help?

"don't tip me over just 'cause i'm short"?

"wagging my tail is my favourite sport"?

"songs about dogs are my favourite sort"?

PUT (hands over her head) ME INTO A COZY FORT!


NOW SHE'S HOME (hug her) in a COZY PORT!





(writing songs for dogs is awesome).

I'm a cuddly puppy sort?
My ears are a floppy sort?

An alternative to snort based on your description:

When I get all riled up, hear me sneeze
Life with me is such a breeze!

....and gets mucous all Mommy's skort? I shake my head from starboard to port?

....that squirrel in the yard - il est mort!!

...A beagle like me can teleport
But please don't feed me any lousewort

/alternate ending
Algorithms, I like, including 'presort'
But make it W3C compliant, or I'll report

lucky beagle!

Alternate version:

When I get all riled up, hear me snuff,
And do the sweetest beagle stuff.

Anyway, "snuff" would open up some new rhyme possibilities.

(Thanks for giving me my first out-loud laugh of the day!)

I'm a cute, short, snorting sort!

(I love this AskMe! I thought I was the only one who made up songs for his dog.)

Response by poster: LOVE IT! Keep 'em coming.

Obligatory puppy pics, so you know who you're writing for: Chloe the Wonderpup

So far we're liking: ...chasing April is my favorite sport. (thanks gursky: our neighbor's dog is named April and they chase each other all the time)

and ...hear me sneeze. / Life as Chloe is such a breeze. (thanks platinum)

How about: ...collab'rative songwriting should be a sport.

My ears are long but my legs are short.

And I like to nap in my blanket fort.

(If she's anything like my beagle, who will sleep all day under a pile of blankets, with only his nose or tail sticking out.)
