Wanetta Hill’s lyrics celebrate her love for Pippa, a sheepadoodle who recently came into Wanetta’s family. In addition to the vocalise-like repetition of “Pippadoodle,” the piece also uses a descant-like countermelody and canonic imitation. It is a fun, joyful piece, and young singers will learn more about the major scale as they sing a bit of easy harmony sprinkled throughout.
