What Do You Know about Dogs?

By Lucy Tobin

We, as pet owners, tend to think of ourselves as “smarter than the average bear” (thanks, Yogi). After all, we had the intelligence and good taste to choose our own best friend! Prove to yourself how worthy you are of your dog’s adoration by correctly answering the questions below (excerpted from HGTV Magazine July/Aug 2016):


1. True or False: Dogs can dream.

2. Which of the following foods is unsafe for your dog to eat: blueberries, raisins, carrots, or peanut butter?

3. True or False: Dogs can be sunburned.

4. We all know Labradoodles are a mix of Labrador retrievers and poodle. Can you name some of the breeds that make up these SPA dogs: Lani, Macarena, and Miny?


1. True! Dogs go into REM sleep—the phase during which dreams usually occur—like humans do. Researchers believe the movements and noises pups make when asleep are in response to what they are seeing while snoozing.

2. Raisins. Even a few can cause kidney failure in dogs.

3. True! Hairless and light-colored dogs are most susceptible. If you have a pup prone to sunburn, help him seek shade when he is outside.

4. Lani (Greyhound and Labrador); Macarena (Boxer and Labrador); Miny (Rottweiler and Rhodesian Ridgeback).


You can come and see some of our interesting SPA dogs and guess their mixes. We are located at Los Pinos 7, near the bus station. We are open for adoption or volunteering every day except Sunday from 11–2pm. Our clinic’s October special is a free nail trimming with consultation.
