Dog's Life is one of the reasons why Octopus is not one of my fave GG albums. Seamus it is.

Seamus is definitely weakest track on Meddle. Actually there is an ordinary blues with extraordinary annoying howl. Dog´s Life is certainly more interesting!

It's the first time that I vote against Pink Floyd, and Seamus were from Humble Pie, too. 
Blind Dog At St. Dunstan is worse than both...

Just heard Dog's Life once and don't remember it well enough, however, I would have a hard time imagining it to be worse than Seamus... however, somehow Seamus's equivalent on Live at Pompeii (Mademoiselle Knobbs) doesn't sound nearly as bad as Seamus itself... even though both songs are just about the same (only one is instrumental and the other not).

Dog's life by a mile. As much as I like PF I think Seamus is far and away one of their worst songs ever. It wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for the dog's "singing." Dog's life I've always liked then again Octopus is probably my favorite GG record.

I oppose all tracks that have dogs barking/howling in them. Well, not all, Dogs from Animals and the one from Tago Mago are good, they don't cause that much of a reaction among the furry people down here.

Voted for Dog's Life.

Hi,
 
NEITHER!
 
If you see the movie "Live in Pompeii" ... yo uknow why Mme Knobs is way better and more important than both of these ... and prettier too!
... none of the hits, none of the time ... you might actually find your own art, or self, and forego lousy heroes or Guru's!

Anyway, my vote goes to the wonderful Dog's Life.

It really hurts to vote against PF.  Unhappy
And then one day you find
Ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run
You missed the starting gun
