Please disregard my last comment. I read the question wrong. I apologize.


I liked that there were pictures of the dogs in the quiz.

On the quiz, a question asked "Which of these dogs is NOT a scent hound?" I clicked the Whippet - the very last dog - the place to click was underneath the Whippet. The response I got was, "Sorry, wrong answer. The Norgwegian Elkhound is a scent hound." I think there may have been a computer glitch with that one.


I have a friend who has 2 Norgwegian Elkhounds - both a adorable and one is a real counter surfer.
