"Me and You and a Dog Named Boo" is the 1971 debut single by Lobo. Written by Lobo under his real name Kent LaVoie, it appears on the Introducing Lobo album.

The single peaked at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was the first of four of his songs to hit #1 on the Easy Listening chart, where it had a two-week stay at that top spot in May 1971.[2] The song also reached #4 in the UK Singles Chart in July 1971,[3] and spent four weeks at #1 in New Zealand.[4]

Internationally, "Me and You and a Dog Named Boo" was Lobo's second most successful song among more than 15 single releases. It was surpassed only by "I'd Love You to Want Me" the following year.
