"My father was a simple Shepherd and my mother, a young Collie. When I was born, my father made good fun of my bean shape and called me "The Bean." Soon, the Bean became "Beanie."
I was a sweet dog and was loved by my parents and brothers and sisters and pretty much everyone I met.
As a young dog, I loved musicals. I would sing all the time, mainly show tunes.
After some short educational experiences, I took off for New York City. Performing in bars, clubs and on the street. I was now singing the blues and became a minor celebrity in the '70's, often appearing on Coca Chrystal's Public Access TV show.
I lived for 17 years and loved to chase seagulls till the end."
That's the story of the first Beanie the singing dog.
Beanie the Singing Dog 2.
Same type of dog as the first, with another fantastic voice.
How can there be more than one Beanie I wondered? Yet, there were. Beanie the Singing Dog 2 released many songs and achieved local fame here in Vermont.
Now there is Beanie 3? No, not exactly, but a new type of dog, a hound who loves to track but not a great singer yet. Her name is Charlize.
