Co-launched with Dogspell is another mother/daughter collaboration of Monica and Megan Dong, a song that portrays a stray dog's hope to be adopted.

Like Dogspell, this song is also available in an English version named I didn't know, and a Chinese version named 有誰知. While Megan wrote the music and English lyrics, Monica co-wrote the Chinese lyrics with famed lyricist John Woo, who has produced, overseen, and written lyrics for Cantonese and Mandarin versions of Disney songs. Both Monica and Megan performed the vocals and produced the songs with the goal of donating all early proceeds to benefit local Dog Rescues.

The Dogspell CD that contains both the English and Chinese songs made its debut at the Dogspell book signing party hosted by Monica and Chinese Daily/World Journal on Saturday, September 10, 2005.

All proceeds from "I Didn't Know" CDs sold during booksigning events benefit the following Dog Rescue organizations:


In support of Monica and Megan's efforts to promote awareness and fund-raising for the Hong Kong Dog Rescue, two radio broadcasting companies in Hong Kong will run simultaneous campaigns beginning September 5, 2005.

Hong Kong Commercial Broadcasting Company's campaign is entitled "If Dogs Could Talk" 如果狗會說話. They will broadcast a series of dialogues describing the desperate lives of stray street dogs. In these dialogues, radio personalities will assume the roles of stray dogs and give their first-hand accounts of life on the streets. These segments will be broadcasted between September 5 and September 18, 2005.

Metro Broadcasting Corporation of Hong Kong will make available for download the Chinese song 「有誰知」via their website between September 5 and October 5, 2005.

Please visit the campaign page for details in Chinese.

Song Clip and Lyrics (please click on song titles to listen to song clips)

I didn't know

Come outside see me standing in the cold
It hardly matters though
I have my shadow as my guide
Waiting for the night to finally come
So I can hide away
While everybody falls asleep inside

And it’s OK
They always walk
they always walk away
It’s Ok
They look sometimes, but they never stay

I didn’t know ..

In my mind the simplest of prayers
I ask that someone cares
But don’t believe it will come true

Hoping that my loneliness will end
That I could find a friend
I never expected that from you

Now it’s OK
I’ve found my place, I’ve found my home today
It’s OK
You take the lead, and by your side I’ll stay

I didn’t know you would take a chance on me
I didn’t know you’d cast a second glance at me
I’m home I’m finally home

I guess there was something even for me
I’ve been waiting for so long
Never knew that being held could make me feel so free
But thank you for proving me wrong

Now it’s OK
I’ve found my place, I’ve found my home today
It’s OK
You take the lead, and by your side I’ll stay

I didn’t know you would take a chance on me
I didn’t know you’d cast a second glance at me

I’m home I’m finally home

有誰知 (click on this title to listen to song clip)

夜已靜
望向街中倍冰凍
獨自行添寂寞
四處冷冷更見孤獨
在這夜更深
要我一個
獨自承擔嚴寒
在寄盼一天有你給溫暖

願有你
全傾愛意
同一起去破浪
願有你
從不放棄 一起去面對
有誰知

望遍地
競放花開散香氣
浪蝶才肯停留
我卻怕沒有驚天貌
若邂逅
這天帶笑的你
邁步携手同行
任冷雨飄過 與你相見

願有你
全傾愛意
同一起去破浪
願有你
從不放棄
一起去面對

有誰知
選中我有着掛牽
有誰知
誰選中我並肩作戰
回家...
心中寄盼

看見愛與關切 心裡嚮往
只怕再次要失望
有你作靠倚我完全的釋放
心中盼 盼有個家

遇上你 (無邊的愛)
全傾愛意
同一起去破浪
遇上你 (不捨不棄)
從不放棄
一起去面對

有誰知
選中我有着掛牽
有誰知
誰選中我並肩作戰
回家...一起回家
