Murphy’s Top Ten Trifles

Murphy Murpherson, Reporter

Before the enactment of the 1978 law that made it mandatory for dog owners in New York City to clean up after their pets, approximately 40 million pounds of dog excrement were deposited on the streets every year….(eeeewwww!)

With the exception of the Chow Breed, every known dog has a pink tongue – the chow’s tongue is jet black…..(ooh ooh ooh….just checked….mine’s PINK !!!)

Dogs breathe 10-30 breaths per minute….(except me….I breath 60) 

According to the American Animal Hospital Association, seventy percent of people sign their pet’s name on greeting cards and fifty eight percent include their pets in family and holiday portraits ….(ooh ooh ooh, I was in our Christmas card last year….three pictures for me…two for riley and one for jameson…yes, I count)

The featured dog in “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas” is named Max…..(jameson looks and acts like max…..hummm, maybe jameson is max?)

The bloodhound is the only animal whose evidence is admissible in an American court…..(what is court?)

Dalmatian puppies are pure white at birth. Their spots come in later…(I think my parents had dalmatians….i still find little white hairs in the couch….and their not mine !!)

Like humans, dogs have a complete set of baby teeth that are replaced by a complete set of adult teeth as they get older…..(ooh ooh ooh….so does that mean the doggy fairy owes me back pay on my biscuits for my baby teeth?….i have yet to see any)

Twenty-five percent of pet owners blow-dry their pet’s hair after a bath….(grrrr….I don’t like this at all!!)

Dogs communicate with their tail…..(uh….duh?)
