This tune is named for our sweet old dog, Ariel. She was saved from a pound in the Columbus OH area just a few hours before being euthanized by a dear old friend of ours. Ariel joined our household on Christmas Day in 2016. mountain dulcimer is tuned to Aaaa

@davisjames Here at our house, dogs are family and I imagine that may be the case at your home, too.  The creatures stay in our hearts even after they've gone from this life.  <3

We made a video of us playing this tune last year for Worldwide Play Music on the Porch Day and Ariel made an appearance at the end, barking at something/someone to protect us.

Thank you, @john-w-mckinstry !  Ariel is a sweet old girl and we are hoping all can make it through these "dog days".

That was beautiful and relaxing.  Now we and Ariel can get through the "dog days" of August.

Thanks, @steven-berger!  I hope you'll post some of your old-timey playing & singing sometime soon.  

@macaodha These days, I gravitate to music which relaxes me.  And I hope others may find it relaxing, too.

Thanks, @strumelia, for listening and for the kind comment.  We are lucky to have our dear Ariel and her now-b(r)other, BillyBoy.  Ari tolerates him and his crazy antics.

Ariel sure was lucky.

Lovely tune Robin.
