Can You Identify the Hunting Dog Breeds in this Music Video?
By David DiBenedetto
Okay, so the following are a few words I never thought I’d use in a sentence on the Man’s Best Friend blog: “the Kinks and hunting dogs.” But recently I stumbled on this video of the Kinks’ classic, “Sunny Afternoon,” and was fairly amused by the hunting dogs piling out of the vehicle during the first few seconds of the clip.
I’ve identified most of them, but there’s a breed or two I can’t pin down. (It’s a quick sequence.) I’m curious of your call on these pooches. And for the record, nobody in the Kinks was much of a gun-dogger. But you can’t argue that Ray Davies knew how to write some lyrics.
