How well do you know about us pooches?

When we were travelling on the Nineteen 87 bus, there was a quiz about dogs.  We were appalled that our hoomans didn’t get them all right!  Wonder how many of you know the answers to these questions?

  1. What dog breed does not bark, but does make yodelling noises?
  2. What dog breed gets its name because it strikes out with its front paws when fighting?
  3. Contrary to popular belief, dogs do not sweat by salivating. They sweat through what?
  4. Every known dog breed except this one has a pink tongue. What is this breed?
  5. Christmas question! What is the name of the dog from “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas”?
  6. Dalmatians are born what colour?
  7. Why do dogs and wolves yawn?
  8. What is the smallest breed of dog used for hunting?
  9. Do dogs favour one paw (left or right) over the other?
  10. What kind of dog did the TV Series detective Columbo have?
  11. Can you name the 7 different groups/classes of dog?

May’s comments: So I scored 4 1/2 out of 8! Ha!  They didn’t finish the list of questions.

Here are the answers:

  1. The Basenji
  2. The Boxer
  3. The pads of their feet
  4. The Chow (It’s tongue is jet black.)
  5. Max
  6. White
  7. As a sign of contentment
  8. Dachshunds

    Dachshund in snow.

    (They are low to the ground, which allows them to enter and manoeuvre through tunnels easily.)

  9. Yes (like people, dogs are either right-handed or left-handed; that is, they favour either their right or left paws.)
  10. A Basset Hound
  11. Toys, Hounds, Herding, Sporting, Non-Sporting, Working, Terrier

So how did you do? 🙂

    Well, I didn’t do so good! But it was very interesting!
    I love the picture of Darcy and George’s paws!

    Well …. I want to argue – I don’t agree that dogs yawn as a sign of contentment – I would say the opposite – that yawning may be a reaction to a situation that is stressful… And I don’t remember a dog in Columbo, but I do remember a basset in Smokey and The Bandit – otherwise ok!
