A Fun Dog Logic Problem Puzzle

July 7, 2012

It has been a while since we’ve done a dog puzzle. I love logic problem puzzles so I thought it would be fun to make one. Make a grid which lists each of the five dogs, toys, breeds, and places (as indicated below). Then with the six clues given, use a process of elimination and other logical techniques to find the answers.

The first five dogs (Max, Bandit, Daisy, Lucky, and Zoe) to the Doggie Day Care were all dogs of a different breed (Labrador, Shepherd, Rottweiler, Chihuahua, and Staffordshire Terrier). Each brought their own dog toy (Tuffy’s, Kong, rope toy, Nylabone, and puzzle toy) and each went to a different part of the Doggie Day Care play area (one stayed in the dog house, one in the swimming pool, one under a tree, one in the dog bed, and one stayed indoors. Can you tell which dog was which breed had which toy and went where?

1. Max, who wasn’t the Labrador or the Chihuahua, went to the dog house with his toy, which wasn’t the rope toy.

2. Lucky didn’t have the rope toy and he wasn’t the Labrador with the Tuffy’s dog toy.

3. The dog with the Nylabone is the dog who spent time on the dog bed.

4. Daisy, who didn’t stay indoors, was the Staffordshire Terrier dog breed.

5. Bandit had the puzzle dog toy but he didn’t stay under the tree or go indoors.

6. Bandit was neither the Rottweiler nor the Chihuahua.

We will post the answers on Wordless Wednesday along with some photos of my dogs playing with certain dog toys.

Small Puppy is a Big Hero

February 1, 2010

NBC Washington posted a recent story about a puppy who saved his owner from fire. Coco is a 4 month old Chihuahua puppy who rides with his owner on his big truck. They were sleeping in the cab when Coco woke his owner with a lot of barking. The cabin was filled with smoke and both dog and owner escaped. The smoke could have suffocated them while they slept, but Coco’s keen senses told him to wake up and make a lot of noise.

Both dog and owner are receiving medical attention and Coco’s situation is critical. Coco’s vet bills could be over $2,000. To read more on this story and learn how you can help the owner pay this little hero’s vet bills, visit NBC Washington’s website at
