"(How Much Is) That Doggie in the Window?" is a popular novelty song written by Bob Merrill in 1952. The best-known version of the song was recorded by Patti Page on December 18, 1952 and released by Mercury Records as catalog number 70070, with the flip side being "My Jealous Eyes." It reached No.1 on both the Billboard and Cash Box charts in 1953. However, Mercury, the record label which distributed Patti Page’s recordings at the time, had poor distribution in the United Kingdom. Therefore, a recording by Lita Roza was the one most widely heard in the UK, reaching No.1 on the UK Singles Chart in 1953. It also distinguished Roza as the first British woman to have a number one hit in the UK chart.
