Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Are puppies deaf when they are born?

Answer: Yes

In addition to being deaf, puppies are born blind and toothless. They are also unable to regulate their own body temperature, so they huddle in piles with their mother and littermates to keep cozy and warm. Puppies use their sense of smell and touch to find their mother's milk. For the first two weeks of life, puppies sleep 90% of the time.
2. How many permanent teeth does a dog have? (Those who know the answer to the question of Life, the Universe & Everything should have no problem here.)

Answer: 42

Like humans, dogs start out with baby teeth. They have 28 of those, which fall out and are replaced by permanent teeth. Also like a human, your dog's teeth should be routinely checked and cleaned.
3. Cocker spaniels, golden retrievers, Irish setters and Weimaraners all belong to which AKC group?

Answer: Sporting

Dogs in the Sporting Group are traditionally those used in hunting and retrieving small game and birds. They require lots of exercise as they are very energetic. If you are not a couch potato, sporting dogs make wonderful and entertaining companions, as they are naturally alert and active.

Some other members of this group are the Viszla, Brittany and Clumber spaniel.
4. U.S. President Lyndon Johnson had two dogs named Him and Her. What breed were they?

Answer: Beagle

President Johnson's family had a total of seven dogs during his time in the White House. In addition to Him and Her, Johnson's daughter had beagles Kim and Freckles (sired by Him). After the death of Him and Her, FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover gave Johnson another beagle, who was named Edgar. The Johnsons also had a white collie named Blanco and a small mixed breed named Yuki.

Though there seems no doubt that President Johnson loved his dogs, an infamous picture was made in 1964 of the President lifting Him by his ears. Dog lovers were not amused.
5. There is a specialized university program in Italy for dogs who hunt a specific thing. What valuable item do these highly trained dogs hunt?

Answer: Truffles

Any breed of dog can be trained to hunt truffles with varying degrees of success. It takes a keen nose and delicate touch to detect and uncover truffles buried up to a foot below the surface.

If a dog shows exceptional skill and promise, he may attend Barot University of Truffle Hunting Dogs where it can take up to four years to educate the dog and his handler. Dogs trained here are so valuable and sought after that they are often stolen. White truffles can sell from $600 to $1200 per pound, so truffle hunting is serious business!
6. What is the purpose of the traditional poodle haircut?

Answer: To keep the dog warm in cold water

The name poodle comes from the German pudel or pudelhund, meaning "water dog". Poodles were bred for water hunting in Europe in the 17th century. Because they have a thick outer coat that is heavy when wet, the hair was shorn to help keep the dog afloat. Hair was kept long over the chest and head to keep his organs warm in cold water, and a topknot used to keep long hair out of the dog's eyes when swimming. Bracelets of hair around the ankles were left long to protect the dog's joints from the cold.
7. A painting entitled "His Master's Voice" became the basis of a well-known advertising logo for such companies as RCA Victor, Gramophone Company, HMV and Deutsche Grammophon. What is the name of the attentive dog in that painting?

Answer: Nipper

"His Master's Voice" was painted by English artist Francis Barraud. The image was acquired by Gramophone Company and was used in advertising for several companies. As the story goes, Barraud inherited Nipper, along with a cylinder phonograph, upon the death of his brother, Mark.

There were a number of cylinders recorded with Mark's voice and Nipper paid close attention when one was played. Barraud committed the image to canvas, using the title "Dog Looking at and Listening to a Phonograph".

When the copyrighted image was purchased by Gramophone Company, they asked Barraud to paint the image using one of their machines. He did so, and an advertising icon was born.
8. Do dogs sweat?

Answer: Yes

Unlike humans who release sweat through glands in their skin, a dog sweats through glands on its foot pads. Dogs also release heat through panting. Because a dog can't release sweat the way we do, they can suffer heat stroke on a hot day or when locked in a hot car.

Heatstroke can be fatal for dogs. Signs of heatstroke include excessive panting, excessive drooling, increased body temperature, production of little to no urine, rapid or irregular heartbeat, wobbly or uncoordinated gait, muscle tremors, vomiting blood or unconsciousness.
9. Which dogs were originally bred to hunt badgers in their dens?

Answer: Dachshunds

Dachshunds were developed more than 300 years ago in Germany to hunt badgers and rabbits in their underground lairs. Their very name means badger dog.

As H.L. Mencken said, dachshunds are "half a dog high and a dog and a half long", but their spunk and tenacity makes them more than a match for a badger. These funny and sweet little dogs are also known as weiner dogs, hot dogs, sausage dogs and doxies.
10. One of my furbabies is a Plott Hound. This beautiful and tenacious hunting dog was developed in North Carolina by the Plott family to hunt what kind of animals?

Answer: Wild boar and bear

The Plott hound was developed in North Carolina by Johannes (George) Plott from Hanoverian hounds brought from his father's stock when Johannes immigrated from Germany. Johannes' son Henry and the Plott family refined and improved the breed into superior hunting dogs, especially for wild boar, bear and other large game.

Plott hounds are fearless, energetic, intelligent, loyal and affectionate, though they can have problems with aggression if not properly socialized. Plotts should be trained early with consistent guidance and positive reinforcement.

The Plott hound was adopted as North Carolina's state dog in 1989.

With their streamlined body, beautiful black or brindle coat and floppy hound ears, a Plott Hound is truly a beauty to behold.
