I just discovered a dog website is using my "Man with small dog" video on their "dog information and facts" page.
Here's the link; http://doginformationandfacts.info/index.php?sub=Man%20with%20small%20dog.%20Train%20drawing.%20Kenny%20Pittock%202011&vid=kxg1FWG5FDU&feature=youtube_gdata_player&cat=&id=593
The website's cluttered with advertising and is pretty difficult to navigate but one aspect of the site I do enjoy is the "Dog names" section.
Of course I went straight to Z, where they offer many useful suggestions including "Zoom Zoom", "Zooey" with a double O, and "Zippity Do Da". Are these legitimate dog names? Has anybody ever used these? Would poor Zippity Do Das name eventually become shortened to Pity? That would be a pity.
I'm probably being ignorant aren't I? Zippity Do Da is probably as big in the dog name industry as Sam or Lassie. I decided to google "Zippity Do Da Dog" to see if any "Here's a photo of me and Zippity when he was a puppy" results came up.
The first result to come up was a video ad for Dippity (with a D, so it doesn't count) Do-Da Dogs.
and finally the third result that Google gave me was the twitter page for Zippity Do Dog, a place that sells hotdogs. If you want to get their tweets here's the link;
I tried to go on the Zippity Do Dog website but it is currently down as Zippity Do Dogs "Go Daddy" domain name expired exactly a week ago and is currently pending renewal or deletion.
So that's that. It's cool to be featured on the website. I would've much preferred they'd asked for my permission, but I am pleased to see they have fully credited me and in this instance of course I would've said yes.
Its funny though because when taken away from youtube the video is no longer accompanied by the little description I wrote which kind of puts the thing into context, but I guess that's just how it is on the internet.
I'm still not convinced anyone's named their dog Zippity Do Da.
