The Bahamian signing group, Baha Men, took the world by storm 20 years ago in 2000, when they released their song, “Who Let the Dogs Out?” Not only did it win a Grammy for best dance recording and a Billboard Music Award for world music album of the year when it was released, it’s been an earworm in our society ever since – often featured in films, commercials, etc.
While the song doesn’t really have anything to do with actual dogs, it’s still gotten plenty of attention from dog owners, including the adorable 4.5-year-old girl who was caught on camera singing the song while walking her dog.
The footage – captured by her mother – was adorable, as the girl was enthusiastically belting it out while skipping down the side walk, with her dog Cooper by her side.
Cooper is a tree walker hound, and he had an endearing reaction to the little girl singing “Who Let the Dogs Out?” as he joined in with what can only be described as a strange howl. But it was cute all the same. And the best part, was the little hound was quite in tune with which parts of the song he needed to join in on the duet.
It is perhaps the best rendition of this song to happen in a while.
