Ciao tutti! It’s Columbus Day, and what better day to have an Italian dog quiz? You have two chances to win.
Quiz 1: The picture above is a still from an Italian movie. What is the movie, and what is the dog’s name? First person to get it right wins 5o zealies. (Just for fun, tell us if you’ve seen this movie, and what you thought.)
Quiz 2: The following is a list of Italian dog breeds. Not all are recognized by the AKC, and a few are pretty rare. But in included in this list of 16 breeds are two names that don’t belong. Be the first to leave a comment with the two names — AND what they really are — and you also get 50 zealies. (The same person can’t win both quizzes, so if the same person answers both correctly first, I’ll take the next correct entrant for either.)
Bolognese, Bracco Italiano, Cane Corso, Cirneco dellEtna, Cresti di Gallo, Lagotto Romagnolo, Maltese, Mastino Napoletano, Pastore Bergamasco, Pastore Maremmano-Abruzzese, Piccolo Levriero Italiano, Segugio Italiano a Pelo Raso, Segugio Italiano a Pelo Forte, Spinone, Volpino Italiano, Strega Nona.
I will supply the answers — and the winners — later in the week, after we have some good (and correct) guesses.
Good luck! Buona fortuna!
