Dogs are great hunters:

Retrievers: Waterfowl
Pointers and Setters: Upland Birds
Afghan Hounds: Gazelle Hunting (seriously)
Dachsunds: Badger Hunting (I'm not joking)
Chow-Chows: Food (seriously . . . Chow? anyone?  Tongue)

I'm serious! They were originally used as food. I read that in a dog encyclopedia.

Tis true.  In China, long ago, the Chow was bred for food.   That's why I keep tellin' my weiner dog that he's one step away from dinner... Grin

Actually, dachsunds were originally used for badger hunting. Their tubular shape was perfect for sliding down badger burrows and pulling out the contents.  Cool Tongue

According to some sources, Chows are descendants of bears, and so it isn't quite the same as eating dog. You'd just be eating mostly-dog.

Who was the genius that decided to breed bears and dogs? Doesn't that sound like a plan that would end in a fat bear and one dead dog?

Well, actually my AKC book doesn't mention bear ancestry in Chow Chows. It also doesn't mention dachsunds going down badger burrows, but it does say that they were used for hunting badgers. In fact, dachsund is German for "badger dog".

There are some other interesting things about dogs. Basenjis don't bark. They only make a sound described as a mix between a chuckle and a yodel. They only make it when they're happy, the book says. Sort of like they're laughing.  Tongue

Also, borzois where originally used to "hunt" wolves in Russia. A bunch of hunters would go riding off on their horses with three borzois each. As soon as they found a wolf, the hunter would let his borzois go, and they'd go tearing off after it. After a long chase the borzois would manage to catch the wolf and pin it down. Then, according to the book, the hunter would come riding up, jump off his horse into the fray, and bind and gag the wolf. After a few minutes the hunter would untie the wolf and let it go. Now that's a sport for ya!

No, they don't bark...BUT they will make every other noise they can!!! Our neighbor bought one, thinking that a barkless dog is a quiet dog. Haha. They will make every other noise possible, all the time! lol
