American Humane is sponsoring a pet trivia contest through this Friday, Nov. 5. There are six questions in the trivia quiz, and if you answer all of them correctly, you could win a prize package. There are 10 prize packages, and the winners will be chose randomly from all of the entries with six correct answers.
So, if you know what Eddie on Frasier and the RCA icon have in common, what international incident involved Teddy Roosevelt’s dog, the breed of Paul McCartney’s dog Martha, or the name of the canine actor who played Toto, consider entering the contest. Though there are questions related to other types of animals, too, dog knowledge is part of what’s necessary for success.
