Republican candidate Carly Fiorina appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday night, and sang about her dogs.

As Fiorina explained to host Jimmy Fallon, she likes to make up songs – a tradition picked up from her mother – and puts particular focus on dogs Snickers and Max.

“I’ll only give you one,” she told Fallon, before turning “Rock Around the Clock” into a song about a lazy pooch.

Of course it wasn’t all fun and games for Fiorina on The Tonight Show. She also discussed fellow candidate Ben Carson’s recent inflammatory comments that a Muslim shouldn’t become president.

Carson told NBC’s Chuck Todd on Meet the Press on Sunday, “I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that.” To which Carly responded Monday evening: “I think that’s wrong.”

“I actually believe that people of faith make better leaders,” she said. “Whether they are Christians, as I am — my faith has sustained me through some very bad times. I’ve battled cancer, I’ve lost a child, I’ve been tested. But whether it’s a person of Christian faith or Jewish faith or Muslim faith or other faiths, I think faith gives us humility, and empathy and optimism. And I think those are important things.”

“It says in our constitution religion cannot be a test for office,” Fiorina said. “Anyone of any faith is welcome here.”
