In Their Words: “I grew up with a black lab named Georgia who was like a fifth sibling in our family. A little while after Georgia passed away, my parents got another black lab named Sylvie (she’s the one in this video). A lot of my musician friends got to meet Sylvie over the years, snuggling with her for a little bit while passing through Pennsylvania on tours. When Sylvie got sick in 2020, I really thought I was going to get to see her again, and at first I wrote a completely different song — it was called ‘Hold On, Sylvie.’ I finally realized I just wasn’t going to get to see her again, and the song became ‘Dogs Run On.’ My parents cared for their sweet friend until the difficult end, and Sylvie passed away in the sunshine in my mom’s arms in November 2020. Many thanks to Chris ‘Critter’ Eldridge for embodying the playful spirit of dogs in his gorgeous lead guitar playing on this track. Critter, Kristin Andreassen, and Ethan Jodziewicz are all such dog lovers, and it was really meaningful to make this song with them. This song is for all the best dogs, running through our hearts forever.” — Maya de Vitry
