I guess Guest's observation would account for the wealth of song titles he/she contributed.

My personal favorit rockdog is the golden retriever named Trey owned by the titular hippie couple in Stephen Malkmus' "Jenny and the Ess-Dog."

"Sometimes I Don't Mind" by The Suicide Machines is about the singer's dog.

And also (WARNING: Rush Geek reference!) Rush's Epic "By-Tor and the Snow Dog" had it's hero and villian named for the two dogs roaming around the studio rounds (in a cabin somewhere).

Get it? "By-Tor" = "biter"? Ha. Ha.

Some qualify, some maybe not. I did a search of song titles on my iPod that include the word "dog". Those I didn't already see mentioned on this thread include:

David Bowie - Diamond Dogs
The Cult - Peace Dog
John Spencer Blue Explosion - Chicken Dog
The Nomads - Call Off Your Dogs
Siouxsie & the Banshees - The Quarterdrawing Of The Dog
Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention - Evelyn, A Modified Dog
