Tuesday Trivia – March 15, 2016 Edition

Sam here. It may be the Ides of March today on the calendar and while I know it’s been a while since our last one, but we thought it might be fun to do another Tuesday Trivia post today. So we searched sniffed around and found some really interesting facts. IMG_1219Think you know the names of some famous (and infamous) dogs? All righty then, let’s get started!

  1. What was the name of the dog in The Adventures of Tintin?
  2. What was the name of Stephen King’s rabid eponymous St. Bernard?
  3. What was the name of Bill Sikes,’ Bull Terrier (from the classic, Oliver Twist)?
  4. What was the name of the dog in both novel and movie The Call of the Wild?
  5. In Greek Mythology, what is the distinguishing factor of the dog, Cerberus?
  6. What was the name of the dog who found the FIFA World Cup Jules Rimet trophy after it was stolen in 1966?
  7. What was the name of King Arthur’s favorite hunting dog reported to have left a permanent footprint in the rock while pursuing the boar Troynt ?
  8. What was the name of Odysseus’ faithful hound in Homer’s book, The Odyssey?
  9. What is the name of Mrs. Pumphrey’s Pekingese in the James Herriot’s vet stories?
  10. What is the name of the Bulldog in the Tom and Jerry cartoons – bonus point for naming his baby son?
  11. What was the name of the dog in the Punch and Judy shows?
  12. What are the names of Farmer Maggot’s 3 guard dogs in Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings?
