- Battersea-based canine aims for chart success
A DOG from south London hopes to become this Christmas's novelty hit-maker in the pop charts.
Cartoon character Rockford from Battersea has some help from humans on the single, titled Christmas Morning: Rockford's Song, but there are enough barking sounds for it to be considered a genuine dog song. Apart from the efforts of pretend-canine Snoop Doggie Dog, we make it the first proper dog pop song since How Much is That Doggie in the Window, a number one hit for Lita Roza in 1953.
Proceeds from the single will go to Battersea Dogs Home, which brings us to the serious side of the single - the treatment of dogs by their owners.
"It's important for us to use any vehicle that we can to get the message of responsible ownership out to people with dogs," said Helen Tenant, of Battersea Dogs Home.
Christmas Morning: Rockford's Song is out today, the same day as rival festive charity recording, Do They Know It's Christmas?
