Favorite Song About An Animal (humans excluded)

What is your favorite song about an animal. One animal not about a species or a reference.

My favs are:

Wildfire by Michael Martin Murphy. Its a sad song that’s well written and beautiful. This video is all pictures of horses so if you like horses this is for you.

A Horse With No Name a song of desolation where names do not matter. A man riding his horse in the desert. Its by America the group. A video of all pictures of the desert.

Puff the Magic Dragon by Peter Paul and Mary. Its about a dragon a real honest to God dragon that lives in a cave called Honnah Lee.

The next song as a child I thought was about Snoopy from Peanuts but it was the word Sloopy. I did some research and it most likely is about Dorothy Sloop who went by name Sloopy. She was a jazz singer. No clue the connection. Everytime I think of this song I think Snoopy but its not. Its by the McCoys from the 60s.

Yet checking youtube there are many renditions ehere Sloopy was replaced with Snoopy. Here is one.
