That Old Hound Dog Rag

That Old Hound Dog Rag was inspired by my two dogs, Toby and Angel.  They are very entertaining to watch, almost like a comedy team.  This tune came into my head one day as I was watching them.  Not many pets can say they’ve been immortalized in song, huh?  Anyway, I hope you enjoy this piece…
