Now that we've seen that gorgeous brindle Cairn Terrier squirming in Dorothy's arms and charging down the Yellow Brick Road, it is hard to imagine Toto any other way. What breed of dog was originally planned to be used for the role instead of a Cairn? (Hint: It's an American story.)
During the portion of the movie set in Kansas, we see several incidents where Toto is supposed to be the centre of attention, but (for those of us enchanted by this little canine superstar) the dog's performance can be entrancing even when we are supposed to be watching something else. For example, as Dorothy sings "Over the Rainbow", what is Toto doing?
sitting on nearby hay, looking lovingly at Dorothy
sitting at Dorothy's feet, looking up at her
sitting in Dorothy's lap, being stroked
sitting on a piece of farm machinery, staring intently offstage at his handler
There is no doubt that Elvira Gulch is Toto's nemesis during his time in Kansas. While we are clearly supposed to take Toto's side, we also learn that he has caused some minor terrors in Miss Gulch's garden. Of course, every mischievous dog needs an enabler, and Toto has Dorothy. How does Dorothy defend her dog's bad behaviour?
It was Miss Gulch's cat's fault.
Miss Gulch was a mean old witch who had been teasing Toto.
Toto didn't know he was doing anything wrong.
Toto was just looking for bones he had buried in the garden.
As a result of his chronic misbehavior, Toto is carried off in a basket by a triumphant and vindictive Miss Gulch. What happens to Toto next?
He jumps out of her car's window as she drives off.
He escapes by jumping out of the basket on her bicycle as she rides off.
He escapes when the basket opens after Miss Gulch falls off her bicycle.
He is delivered to the pound, then escapes and runs home.
Shortly after Dorothy and Toto land in Munchkinland, Glinda, the Good Witch of the North, arrives to meet the 'witch' who killed the Wicked Witch of the East. Dorothy denies that she herself is a witch, so Glinda asks if it is Toto who is the witch. What do we see Toto do in response to this question?
run and hide behind Dorothy's legs
shake his coat and wander off to investigate something interesting in the bushes
trot over to Glinda and sniff her dress
stand up and wag his tail enthusiastically
At the end of the Munchkinland scenes, Dorothy and Toto start their journey to the Emerald City. What is Toto doing as they head off along the Yellow Brick Road?
walking behind Dorothy
being carried in Dorothy's arms
running alongside Dorothy
being carried in Dorothy's basket
As Dorothy and Toto journey along the Yellow Brick Road, they meet the three other characters who become their allies. Which of these characters does Toto actually help Dorothy to find? (Hint: Maybe he was trying harder at first.)
all of them
As our heroes are beginning their quest to obtain the broomstick of the Wicked Witch of the West, the Wicked Witch captures Dorothy and Toto. Determined to fetch help, Toto performs an heroic feat in order to escape from the witch's castle. What does he do?

He leaps out of the tower window into the moat and swims across.
He bites one of the flying monkeys trying to block his way.
He jumps over the edge of the rising drawbridge to escape from the castle.
Thanks to Toto, Dorothy's friends are able to find and rescue her. How does Toto help the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion find out where in the witch's castle Dorothy is being held?
He sits outside the door to the room in which she is trapped and barks to get their attention.
He runs in circles around the Tin Man's feet to get his attention, then leads them to the room in which she is trapped and barks outside it.
He grabs the Scarecrow's hand and pulls him towards the room in which she is trapped.
He barks to get their attention, leads the way up a flight of stairs and digs at the door to the room in which she is trapped.
We all know that the Wizard never actually gets Dorothy out of Oz, but he tries to. In what way is Toto responsible for Dorothy missing the balloon flight that was to carry her and the Wizard back to Kansas?
Toto is busy chewing a bone, and refuses to come.
Toto has disappeared, and nobody knows where he is.
Toto jumps out of her arms to chase a cat.
