Canine Trivia #3

Are Dachshund's Hunting dogs?
The name Dachshund is derived from two German words: dachs, meaning badger, and hund, meaning hound. It was in the 16th century that evidence of this small dog was found in reference to a “low, crooked-legged” dog which was called a “little burrow dog” or a “badger dog.” This breed was known for its hunting abilities, including its tendency to follow its prey into the burrow, then pull it out and kill it.

Three dogs survived the sinking of the Titanic - a Newfoundland,
a Pomeranian, and a Pekingese.

Walt Disney's family dog was named Lady. She was a poodle.

Three's Company

I was laying on my belly while shooting this one. Then I
was mauled by all three of their wet noses and tongues.

Canine Trivia

"Where does the dog name "Fido" originate from?"
In Latin the name means "I am faithful." What a great name for
the average protective and loyal family dog. However, it gets its popularity from a celebrity tie-in. Abraham Lincoln, a largely self-educated but very erudite man, named his dog Fido. Americans followed suit in droves, putting the dog name Fido firmly in the top 20 names.

The Canary Islands were not named for a bird called a canary.

They were named after a breed of large dogs. The Latin name was Canariae insulae, which means "Island of Dogs." The "Canary Dog"
was bred as a multi-purpose farm dog and guard dog.

Dogs are mentioned 14 times in the Bible, but domestic cats are
not mentioned at all.

Rosie is currently being treated at Paradise Pet Lodge for her therapeutic swim and massage therapy due to her acute arthritis.

I have nothing but great praise for this institution and it's wonderful employees. I highly recommend their water and massage therapy for all your four-legged friends. They also offer boarding and grooming to keep your pet happy and healthy.

a few years since Rosie smelled the flowers.
