Astronaut Chris Hadfield’s critter-filled song about Canada

We admit this post is only tangentially related to animals. Yes, there are dogs – lots of dogs – a scurrying pig, loon calls, talk of fishing and also kissing a cod. But mostly it’s an excuse to share the song “In Canada” posted for Canada Day by Commander Chris Hadfield and his brother, Dave.

They posted it on YouTube yesterday with a note, “A polite song from two brothers who are just hoping your day is going okay.” It already has more than 400,00 views and a tonne of kudos on social media from Canadians – and non-Canadians – alike.
