As can be seen on the cover of the original sheet music, this jolly one-step (also designated a dog-gone good dance) obviously celebrates mans' best friend here depicted as a loveable puppy. Humour pervades much of Klickmann's work and this piece makes no exception. On no less than six occasions, repeats not included, the musicians are required to intone bow-wow-wow! during its performance. The one-step itself has an AAAABCAA with a 4-bar introduction which also doubles as an interlude between the C- and AA-strains. There is also a 12-bar interlude with much bow-wowing separating the initial AA-strains. The keys used are C- and A-major. This is just the job for lovers of canines and humorously inclined recorder players with a bite in their performance and who enjoy barking!

Scored Tempo di One-Step , a tempo of 80 seems about right.
