Friday Fun: Furry Friend Flash Quizzes

This is the last furry set for Friday Fun quizzes (for humans - tomorrow I'll have some dog challenges). We’ll be heading out to the second day of the WKC Dog Show on Tuesday morning, returning Wednesday afternoon, and, except for a follow-up Flash Tour post, my dog days are over—for a little while, at least.

First, there is the Dogs Around the World quiz from PBS. Like Jeopardy, there are hints in the questions, but it provides only a picture and some facts about the dog. Here's a dog breed in the quiz that I had never heard of before: Dogo Argentino anyone?  Now that you know its name, you should get this one right.

Then there is this series of Animal Planet/Eukanuba – Be the Judge tests.  Really, that’s all I've ever wanted to be is a judge, and happily I get to do that many, many thousands of times a day. In fact, it is essential to life. But here, you get to answer questions that Dog Show judges would need to know, such as which breed belongs to which group, what will disqualify a dog, etc. My hints: study your color standards.  And repeat the test until you are satisfied with the results.
