Song For Chet Video: Submit, or Forever Hold Your Peace!

Do you have a canine friend who was born to be a star? Of course you do—anyone can see there’s natural talent in that wagging tail! We’re holding open auditions for our world premiere of the “Song For Chet” music video, where we’ll be sharing an original country song written exclusively for HEART OF BARKNESS, by Spencer Quinn, in partnership with our publisher Tor/Forge and our good friends over at Muttville who rescue and shelter senior dogs.

For the chance to have footage of your pup included, simply record a short video of them doing their usual amazing, wonderful or loving things, with you or solo, or maybe with their canine pals, and email it over to us at along with the following information: your name, your pup’s name, the city and state where you live. Your submission must be an original video that you’ve personally created and which you fully own (no repurposed internet clips!) and to qualify, you should avoid any logos or trademarked images in the background. If you use your cell phone camera, it’s recommended that you hold it horizontally, but if you already have some wonderful footage of you and your 4-legged pal, send it to us no matter what the shape!

Winning clips will be edited for inclusion in our “Song For Chet” music video, which will premiere during the last week of June– so get cracking! The deadline for all submissions is Friday, June 7th at 5pm EST.

(Please be sure to read through our standard disclaimer posted May 24 here on the blog before you submit your footage.)

    Good morning everyone. We are getting so excited we could sing. No, wait, we already did sing.
    Hope everyone’s Memorial Day includes good memories and poignant ones as well.
    Remember, flags at half staff until noon, then raise them to full staff.

    Very excited about the “Song for Chet” contest, and the upcoming video!

    Just saw this story, “Walk With Frank” on my local news station. Very appropriate for this weekend. I salute you, Frank!

    A good and safe day to all!

    I just wanted to thank everyone for the birthday wishes yesterday. My dad says I am now officially six years old, but all I know is that it is more than two (and perhaps even more than four, thanks Chet!)

    Hope everyone has a great Memorial Day weekend too. Hot here and going to be hotter by mid week, but thankfully not too much rain/thunderstorms.

    The Walk with Frank story is fascinating. Thanks, Wose.

    Alice is such a rebel.

    She sent in a video of Henry giving me some love. I told her it was only for dogs but she just flicked her tail at me in a very rude way. She said Queenie would do it!

    I think she hopes someone will remove him from the house after seeing the video.

    Teddy RR: Hope you are having a fun birthday weekend!

    Staff: Alice would make the perfect Queenie if a film is ever made of “Ruff vs. Fluff.” ;^)
