"The Dog Song": Nellie McKay on TED.com

Animal fan Nellie McKay sings a sparkling tribute to her dear dog. She suggests we all do the same: “Just go right to the pound/ And find yourself a hound/ And make that doggie proud/ ’cause that’s what it’s all about.” Nellie’s TED performance of “The Dog Song” is dedicated to this handsome fellow, Carmello, beloved pal of TED’s Film + Video editor, Marla Mitchnick. (Recorded February 2008 in Monterey, California. Duration: 3:33)
