A special send-off for a special dog

A special send-off for a special dog

This isn’t the first time I’ve written a song for Hacker the Dog to sing to Blue Peter’s Iggy, but sadly it will probably be the last. Iggy officially left the show in May 2016 to start her new job as a Guide Dog. I wrote this song (to a tune you will definitely recognise!) to give her a proper send-off, celebrating everything she’s achieved and the massive change she will make in her new owner’s life.

This was great fun to produce, especially being able to write string parts for the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra and enlisting the help of my acoustic function band Strings Attached.

"So proud you're starting this new job, we love you no matter what so worry not, you'll always be a Blue Peter dog!"
