Friday’s answers

Thursday’s questions were:

1. Who said: I am sometimes a fox and sometimes a lion. The whole secret of government lies in knowing when to be the one or the other.?

2. Where did the phrase a wolf in sheep’s clothing originate?

3. It’s chien in French, cane in Italian,  pero in Spainsh and  kurī in Maori, what is it in English?

4. What breed of dog was Greyfriars Bobby and where would you find his statue?

5. If you were offered the choice of any dog, which breed would you pick?

Points for answers:

JBloggs got four.

Andrei wins a virtual box of stone fruit with five right.

Willdwan got three.

Alwyn got four.

Paranormal got three with a bonus for the dog’s tale.

Answers follow the break.

1. Napoleon Bonaparte.

2. The Bible – specifically Matthew 7:15.

3. Dog.

4. A Skye Terrier, in Edinburgh (at the corner of Edinburgh’s Candlemaker Row and George IV Bridge).

5. Pepper’s mother was a golden lab, we suspect his father was a sheep dog. The result was a black dog with the good bits of both his parents so I’m happy with a bitser.

    When I picked the theme of this quiz I recalled you lost an old dog some years ago, a driveway accident?

    A sad event in any case

    And I wondered if perhaps if you had a new dog.

    Is Pepper a puppy?

    You have a very good memory, Andrei. Alas Pepper was the old dog that was run over and sadly we haven’t got a new pup, at least yet.
