The animal was carried around for almost the entire clip and later followed by other four-legged friends.
The bitch did an impressive job in the video and always looked good-naturedly into the camera.
For the celebrities The band will never forget the performance: “As a puppy, Golspie on Ingo’s arm turned the video into one of the cutest and greatest four-legged music documents of the times.”
The musicians thanked the dog: “We are eternally grateful for that and raise our paws for a final greeting to Sweden. Thank you, Golspie! Rest in Paws!”
Oddly enough, dogs have always played an important role in the Donots’ band history. So their first record was called “Pedigree Punk”. That was in 1996. In 2008 the dog video described followed with 4.6 million views.
In 2012 the punk band released the album “Wake the Dogs“with the single of the same name.
The dog Golspie will never wake up – she sleeps forever in dog heaven. On YouTube, fans expressed their condolences shortly after the band’s statement was published. “Rest in peace,” wrote one user. Another fan commented: “Rip, Golspie.”
The band last released their live album “Birthday Slams Live” in 2020. Fans could look forward to a band biography in 2021. Live performances by the band are not in sight for the time being.
