Five: At the end of the Beatles’ song “A Day in the Life”, a high-pitched dog whistle was recorded by Paul McCartney for his sheepdog.

Six: Corgi is Welsh for “dwarf dog”.

Seven: The reason dogs curl up in a ball while they sleep, is because of an age-old instinct to keep themselves warm and to protect vital organs while they sleep.

Eight: Dalmatian puppies are born completely white and develop their spots over time.
