Time for more of my Top Ten Trifles on Dog Trivia!  I’ve been searching the great dog library to bring you the the odd, the weird, and the funny trivial facts about dogs! 




A dogs only sweat glands are between their paw pads.  (Do you know how hard it is to apply deodorant there?”)


Teddy Roosevelt’s dog, Pete, ripped a French ambassador’s pants off at the White House.  (And W’s scotty Barney bit a reporter who tried to pet him ……. which just goes to show you can bite the hand that feeds you!)


Gidget is the name of the Taco Bell dog!  (Huh? I always thought the Chihuahua was a boy dog! Only in Hollyweird!)


Basset Hounds cannot swim.  (Duh!  Those loveable hounds can barley move, much less dog paddle fast enough to stay afloat!)


Dogs have no sense of “time”!  (Like Cesar Millan says….dogs live in the moment……uh what was I doing? Oh yeah, trifles.)


The smartest dogs are said to be: 1) border collie; 2) poodle; 3) golden retriever.  (Riley should be #1, he’s really smart, I know cause Linda calls him a “wise guy” !)


Dogs have a wet nose to collect more of the tiny droplets of smelling chemicals in the air.  (And a dry nose just collects dust!) 


The Basenji is the only breed of Dog that cannot bark.  (So how do they alert the family about a burgaler?) 


Dogs have twice as many muscles to move their ears as humans.  (Yep! It takes a lot of muscles to stand one up and put the other one down at the same time, I don’t even have to think hard about it!)  


The breed Norwegian Lundehune has 6 toes and can close its ears. (eeeewwwww, Freaky! Thought I’d add a photo for you to see!)

Norwegian Lundehund (Also know as the Norwegian Puffin Dog)

Do you have an interesting or weird bit of dog trivia?  Share it with me…….it just might make my Top Ten list!
