eheheheh, WRONG JOHN!!!!!

It's in heaven they invented GUINNESS !!!!!! :-)
There was a ballad I heard by a local musician in New Hampshire that was about a pack of dogs who went to a pub but they had to hang up there butts in a cloak room. A fire breaks out and they scramble in the cloak room grabbing the most conveinient butt and obvius mistakes are made. This is suppose to explain the reason hounds sniff each others butts. It was a ridiculous premise but a hilarious song. I have searched for it for decades and cannot find it. Any help out there?
This is the one you want, learned it from a friend of mine, Roy Gullane. He figured that with a band name like ours we should know a few songs about dogs... (www.doggyfew.com)

The dogs they had a party
they came from near and far
and some dogs came by aeroplane
and some by motorcar
they went into the lobby
and signed the visitors book
and each dog hung his arsehole
upon a separate hook
one dog was not invited
and this aroused his ire
he went into the lobby and loodly shouted "FIRE!!!"
The dogs got so excited,
they had no time to look
and each one took an arsehole
from the nearest hook
now, its a sad, sad story
for it is very sore
to wear another ones arsehole
that you've never worn before
so this is why when dogs meet
by land or sea or foam
each sniffs the other ones arsehole,
in hope it is his own...

Thank you so much I've been looking for that song for decades
HEY JUDE..WINNER I TELLS YA ! OR.THE.WILD ROVER......AND 500 MILES
The Parting Glass for the end of a great evening!
Sorry, hit the add button to quick. Parting Glass was played at the pub for the memorial for my father, Robert Kirby, at the pub at the Shamrock Club in Columbus, OH and there wasn't a dry eye in the place. Thanks to Mike Hale (sp?) for the lead vocals.
'Show me the way to go home' is usually a good song after a few jars works well in any pub!!
A long time ago, way back in history,
when all there was to drink was nothin but cups of tea.
Along came a man by the name of Charlie Mops,
and he invented a wonderful drink and he made it out of hops.

He must have been an admiral a sultan or a king,
and to his praises we shall always sing.
Look what he has done for us he's filled us up with cheer!
Lord bless Charlie Mops, the man who invented beer beer beer
tiddly beer beer beer.

The Curtis bar, the James' Pub, the Hole in the Wall as well
one thing you can be sure of, its Charlie's beer they sell
so all ye lads a lasses at eleven O'clock ye stop
for five short seconds, remember Charlie Mops 1 2 3 4 5

A barrel of malt, a bushel of hops, you stir it around with a stick,
the kind of lubrication to make your engine tick.
40 pints of wallop a day will keep away the quacks.
Its only eight pence hapenny and one and six in tax, 1 2 3 4 5
I must say I like "Sick Note". Don't know who originally wrote it, but I know for sure there is a version from the Dubliners.
"A Nation Once Again"
But of course "Whiskey in a Jar" And "The Irish Rover" are crowd pleasers around here.
"Whiskey in a Jar", definitely. A classic! Apart from that, i like "Sweet Molly Malone". :)
