We are taking a break from our regular, ongoing story while we celebrate Valentine’s Day here on Planet Earth and Love Day on Dogland. We revisit the speech Dogland President Bernie Sandals gave about loving their world. Wouldn’t it be lovely if we all made Valentine’s Day about loving this world we live in? We also talk about how it isn’t exactly accurate to say that dogs are colorblind, and we share a bunch of silly jokes! Special thanks to Jason Roark who records, edits, and designs this show. He also provides original music including our theme song, which is sung by him, and our background music. Jason was not able to edit this episode, but he set Phoebe & Hank up for success and a fun learning opportunity, which they enjoyed wholeheartedly. They had a blast using the free and fantastic resources at freeSFX dot com. We sourced nearly 30 fun sounds from their site! Jim Cheff, the creator of Mary Farfisa's Outer Space Radio Theater, illustrated Power Dog for our cover art, which was designed for this bonus episode by Phoebe and Hank using Canva.

Thank you, Melanie Dill! Fun fact, Hank learned to spell the word “love” from singing along to this song, and he still sings it in his head when it’s time to write it down.

We’re so happy we can share this special winter bonus episode with y'all!

We’re taking a little break this week, but we still put together this bonus episode to share fun jokes & ridiculous food puns, and some more fun music from Hank’s Granny, aka Jeanie Murphy. We also share a bit more about the famous Dogland saying, “We are all connected at our roots, and rooted in our connection.” It feels perfect to talk about connection at this time. We round out the episode with a talk about Native American Heritage Month and share a trailer from one of our favorite shows and a special song from their incredible composer. Stay past the jokes to hear the trailer for Coin Trick, https://www.cointrick.net/, a narrative series that follows 12-year-old Cassidy and the flute-playing mischief-maker Kokopelli on their adventures through a fantasy world based on Native American mythology.  We are blown away, honored, and excited to share a song gifted to us by Coin Trick’s composer, Shelley Morningsong, https://shelleymorningsongonline.com/. Shelley has also written a gorgeous children’s book, and it includes a free audio download that we are loving in our house. This resource from IllumiNative called "How to Center and Be a Good Ally to Indigenous People this Thanksgiving" is an excellent read. https://bit.ly/3FIELv2 We really enjoyed this article from PBS about finding ways to honor the real history of this time in the US: https://www.pbs.org/parents/thrive/thanksgiving-practicing-gratitude-and-honoring-the-real-story We are really impressed by this coverage in Teen Vogue: Land Acknowledgements: https://www.teenvogue.com/story/indigenous-land-acknowledgement-explained We create this show in the ancestral lands of the Multnomah, Wasco, Kathlamet, Clackamas, Cowlitz, bands of Chinook, Tualatin Kalapuya, Molalla, and many other Tribes of the first people who made their homes along the rivers here in what is now called “Portland, Oregon.” These groups created communities and summer encampments along the Columbia and Willamette rivers and harvested and used the plentiful natural resources of the area for thousands of years. Today, the Native community of Portland is the 9th largest urban population in the USA. We’ve made a donation to an organization called the NATIVE AMERICAN YOUTH AND FAMILY CENTER (NAYA) https://nayapdx.org/support-us/ Other wonderful organizations to support are IllumiNative, https://illuminatives.org/about-us/ and The American Indian College Fund, https://collegefund.org/ You can find out more and send us jokes at www.powerdogadventures.com This podcast was made possible, in part, by a grant from The Regional Arts & Culture Council in Portland, OR. https://racc.org/ It was made more possible by listeners like you!

Hank's Granny, aka Jeanie Murphy, recorded three fun old-time turkey songs with her banjo for us, and we thought they were too great to keep to ourselves--especially in a season of giving! Hank had a lot of fun singing this particular Turkey Lurkey song with his fantastic music teacher at school, so he rang his Granny when he got home and they sang it together. We feel so fortunate to have a musical Granny, and Hank has been musical since before he was born. The two of them have been noodling on songs together since he was knee-high to a penny whistle! "Turkey in the Straw" is an American folk song that first gained popularity in the early 19th century.  "Turkey Lurkey Run So Fast" is a classroom rhyme that Hank has really enjoyed.  "A Turkey Ran Away" is a traditional Appalachian song.

“What problems, what forces Against us shall bide While the stars in their courses Do fight on our side?” You may have noticed that we are really grooving on the concept of the universe wanting all of us to succeed, to thrive, and to love ourselves as well as each other.

We are so pleased to share this next leg of Power Dog’s adventure- a crossover tale of tails in which we visit the characters and place from Stories For Wonderful Children! Hosted by Dan Wendelin, this podcast is a fellow member show in the wonderful organization we belong to dedicated to high-quality audio for families called Kids Listen. You can also read more about Dan and his show on the Kids Listen Medium channel here: https://medium.com/kidslisten/get-to-know-a-show-stories-for-wonderful-children-d383379ecea9 Hank would like to especially recommend that you listen to all of Dan's stories, and especially the short series featuring the Cats of the Elysium. From Dan, "Deep in Antarctica lies the mystical Cat Elysium, a magical paradise for Flibbertygibit's feline subjects. Flip-Flop, the prankster of the royal cat family passes idyllic days there as caretaker. But when trouble comes to the Elysium, will Flip-Flop's joking ways be able to rise to the challenge?" The best place to start is with Stories For Wonderful Children Episode 37: Where's Flibbertygibit. Special thanks to Jason Roark, our creative partner and ultimate Renaissance Bunny Supreme! He records, edits, and designs this show. He also provides original music including our opening theme song, which is sung & performed by him and the wonderful, talented Jen Bernard. Our song that plays at the end of this episode is a song we wrote along with Hank’s Granny & Gramps, aka Murphy & Marckx. It's called “Power Dog, He Won’t Give Up!” It started as poetry. Colin Laurel illustrated our cover art, which was directed by Jen Wick. Creating it was visualizing poetry.

Thank you for tuning in to a special, bedtime-friendly bonus episode of The Adventures of Power Dog in Dogland about falling in love with the sea! There’s no loud, be-bopping rock anthem or toe-tapping banjo fun in this episode. Instead, you’ll hear Phoebe’s “sleepytime” voice, soothing ocean waves, and gentle music. We even end the episode with a solid five minutes of ocean waves gently splashing on soft, silky sand. And, as many listeners have requested, this is a story about Taffy, Power Dog’s first cousin, and Tuffy’s twin sister. We have sometimes referred to her as the bravest dog in all of Dogland, but a quality she has that we really admire is her curiosity. For this young pup who sat by the sea and who wondered — and for other puppies who wonder — What sea stories are yet to be told? We explain what “zoomies” are, how water travels through the world to become part of the ocean, what is left when you dry out ocean water, and what salt and lime crystals look like under a microscope. This story is based on the first part of a short and lovely book in the public domain called Sea Stories for Wonder Eyes by Mary Earle Hardy. You can hear the book read to you for free at Librivox.com- an incredible online catalog of free, public domain audiobooks read by volunteers from around the world. A note to grownups: because most of the books, short stories, and poems featured in Librivox are from around a century ago, some content may not feel suitable for your families to listen to and might be worth a preview before sharing with your younger people. Feel free to reach out via our many social channels or email if you want to discuss this further. Special thanks to Anders Lund for helping us record this episode. And, thanks as well to the über-talented artists at Orange Free Sounds, who provide a robust library of music and sound effects for others to use. This episode was edited using the phenomenally easy & intuitive Descript App, which we wholeheartedly recommend. (Affiliate link benefits our show.) If you catch a moment, and can follow, rate, and/or review the show, we would be so grateful! It really helps get the word out for our small, indie, mom & pop & pup, family operation.

“What problems, what forces Against us shall bide While the stars in their courses Do fight on our side?” Adapted from Rudyard Kipling’s The Astrologer’s Song, this episode uses epic poetry to visit a dream state before Power Dog goes on to the next leg of his journey in our unfolding epic tale of tails for season two.  We strongly believe in the power of poetry! If you’d like to read more about why it is so important for students, then we highly recommend reading this article from Edutopia: https://www.edutopia.org/blog/five-reasons-poetry-needed-schools-elena-aguilar. Art is the crucial language of emotion, and poetry refines our language. Poetry is music, and poetry is therapy. Poetry is joy, and poetry can be a righteous rage. It can teach social-emotional learning and help us find better ways to understand ourselves and others. If you love this episode, and it leaves you hungry for more great poetry for kids, we highly recommend checking out our friends and fellow Kids Listen member shows Buttons & Figs, Kids Poetry Club, and Mary Farfisa’s Outer Space Radio Theater- a musical story podcast with wonderful poetry and poetic language stitched into the music and dialog. If you're completely new to our story, please go find episode 1, called "S1E1 | START HERE! | Power Dog Goes To College" as this is a serial story adventure that unfolds throughout each season. Special thanks to Jason Roark, our creative partner and ultimate Renaissance Bunny Supreme! He records, edits, and designs this show. He also provides original music including our opening theme song, which is sung & performed by him and the wonderful, talented Jen Bernard. They are both poets! Our song that plays at the end of this episode is a song we wrote along with Hank’s Granny & Gramps, aka Murphy & Marckx. It's called “Power Dog, He Won’t Give Up!” It started as poetry.
