Old song played on Dr. Demento in the mid-90s

I listened to Dr. Demento most Sundays as a kid in the early/mid-90s. One time he played a song where a guy was singing about his dog Rover (I think that was the dogs name). He was hiking across a desert or something and eventually if I remember right, he ended up eating the dog. It might have been kind of Irish sounding.

I've never been able to find it since! Help, please!

Maybe browse through here? Dr. Demento Playlists. The song doesn't ring a bell for me.

The only Rover song I remember from Dr. D. was I'm Looking Over My Dead Dog Rover, a parody of "I'm Looking Over a Four-Leaf Clover".

I FOUND IT THANKS TO THAT ARCHIVE!!!!!!!! It had been bugging me for so long.

Rover (The Shaggy Dog Song)

That's not the full song, of course, but that's definitely it.

Cool! I listened to a lot of Dr. Demento in the early 90's as well :)

Here are the lyrics, if that's helpful.
