The Most Maneuverable Vacuum In the World

by Kathy Wolfe

This week, in commemoration of National Dog Week, Tidbits is going to the dogs! Let’s look at some unusual breeds and random facts about “man’s best friend.” • We’ve been celebrating National Dog Week since 1928 when Captain Will Judy, a noted dog judge, founded the week of tribute. Judy, a decorated World War I veteran, left behind a law practice to establish his own publishing house in order to publish his war diary, essays, and reference books about his life’s passion, dogs. He authored The Dog Encyclopedia and other works about breeding, training, and show dogs, as well as publishing Dog World magazine.

• What are folks naming their dogs these days? The most popular names for males dogs are Max, Buddy, and Rocky, while the top choices for female dogs are Bella, Molly, and Lucy. Other favorites are Jake, Charlie, Maggie, and Daisy. WANT TO RUN YOUR OWN BUSINESS? Publish a

IT'S A DOG'S LIFE

• It’s believed that the oldest domesticated dog breed is the Saluki, which has its origins in ancient Egypt around 330 B.C. They were kept as royal pets and mummified after death and buried alongside Pharaohs. They are still used as hunting dogs by the nobles in the Middle East.

IT'S A DOG'S LIFE (continued): • Ever wonder where the term “man’s best friend” originated? U.S. Senator George Graham Vest was a small-town Missouri lawyer in 1870 when he was hired to represent a farmer suing a man for killing his best hunting dog, Old Drum. Vest offered a heart-warming and poignant closing argument to the jury, one so powerful it brought tears to the eyes of the jurors. In part, Vest declared, “The best friend a man has in the world may turn against him and become his enemy. His son or daughter that he has reared with loving care may prove ungrateful…the one absolutely unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous is his dog.” In 1948, the community of Warrenburg, Missouri, had the “Tribute to the American Dog” speech inscribed on a bronze statue of Vest and Old Drum. Historians consider it one of the world’s great speeches. • Since 1905, the American Kennel Club has compiled statistics on what our favorite breeds are. For 30 years, the Boston terrier ranked in either first or second place. When German Shepherd Rin-Tin-Tin gained popularity in silent films, that breed took over the lead as most popular. The original Rin-Tin-Tin was rescued from a World War I battlefield by an American soldier who brought him back to the U.S., where the canine appeared in 27 Hollywood films. • Cocker spaniels became the most popular breed in 1936 and held the honor for the next 16 years, when the Beagle gained the title. In 1960, poodles were the top dog and reigned for a record 22 years. Since 1991, the Labrador Retriever has been in first place, followed by German Shepherds and Golden Retrievers. The Lab is highly trainable and is frequently used for search and rescue purposes, as guide dogs for the blind, and on narcotics detection teams.

IT'S A DOG'S LIFE (continued): • Although the collie has never made it to the Number One spot in popularity, its status took a huge leap during the 1940s after the release of the hit film Lassie Come Home, starring Elizabeth Taylor and Roddy McDowall. It maintained the rank of third for several years, aided by the long-running Lassie television series. The collie now places 35th. Likewise, the 1962 movie Big Red about an Irish setter vaulted that breed into 3rd place for a time, but it now ranks #72. • For city folks and apartment dwellers, small dogs are the most popular, with the Yorkshire terrier leading the pack, followed by the poodle, dachshund, and Shih Tzu. The Shih Tzu originated in China, and was once the prized pet of that country’s royalty during the Ming Dynasty. It weighs between 11 and 16 lbs. and stands about 10.5 inches tall. • It’s no surprise that the Chihuahua is the smallest breed. This breed’s owners can expect their dog to weigh under 6 pounds and measure between 6 and 9 inches tall and live between 10 and 18 years. The record holder of the title of world’s smallest dog is Milly, a Chihuahua living in Puerto Rico. She stands just 3.8 inches tall and weighs about a pound. Milly’s birth weight was less than an ounce and she fit nicely in a teaspoon. • Close behind the Chihuahua in size is the Affenpinscher, a German breed belonging to the Pinscher-Schnauzer family, dating back to the 17th century. Its unusual name is the result of its odd monkey-like facial expression. In the German language, Affen means “monkey,” and the breed has earned the nickname “monkey dog.” It weighs between 7 and 9 lbs. and stands less than a foot tall.

IT'S A DOG'S LIFE (continued): • Although the largest dog breed, the Great Dane, usually average about 160 lbs. in weight and 32 inches in height, a Michigan Great Dane named Zeus, history’s tallest dog, measures 44 inches tall and 7’ 4” tall standing on his hind legs. Zeus weighs in at 150 lbs. • If you’re looking for a quiet dog, there are several breeds that will fit the bill. A survey of 218 veterinarians tells us that, although very large in size, both the Newfoundland and the Great Dane don’t bark often. Of course, when they do, their barks are louder and deeper than any other dogs. Both of these breeds are calm and docile. The sleek greyhound is also a quiet dog, but its owner will have the dog’s strong will and defiance to deal with instead. • So which dogs are the smartest? A panel of 122 vets were surveyed and their consensus was that the Golden Retriever is the fifth-smartest, followed by the Australian Shepherd in fourth place, the poodle in third, and the German Shepherd second. The majority ranked the Border Collie as the smartest breed.

MOMENTS IN TIME • On Oct. 4, 1937, legendary blues singer Bessie Smith is buried near Philadelphia. Smith was killed a few days earlier when the old Packard she was driving hit a parked truck near Coahoma, Mississippi. In 1923, Smith had released her first record, "Down-Hearted Blues."

• On Oct. 2, 1971, "Maggie May" becomes Rod Stewart's first No. 1 hit and tops the U.K. and U.S. pop charts simultaneously. "Maggie May" was a last-minute addition to the album "Every Picture Tells a Story" and was • On Sept. 30, 1949, after 15 months originally released as the "B" side and more than 250,000 flights, the to the single "Reason to Believe."

In the aftermath of the strike, • On Sept. 29, 1954, Willie Mays, centerfielder for the New York Giants, makes an amazing over-theshoulder catch of a fly ball hit by Cleveland Indians first baseman Vic Wertz to rob Wertz of extra bases in Game 1 of the 1954 World Series. The catch has gone down as one of the greatest in baseball history.

British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher agreed to give in to several of the protesters' demands, including the right to wear civilian clothing.

• On Oct. 5, 1990, "Henry & June," starring Uma Thurman, Fred Ward and Maria de Medeiros, opens in theaters as the first film with an NC-17 rating. A month earlier, the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) had debuted NC17 (No One Under 17 Admitted) as a replacement for the X rating. © 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

• About 4.5 million people in the U.S. will be bitten by a dog this year. Nearly 850,000 of those will have to receive medical attention. Out of that number, more than 30,000 will have to undergo some type of reconstructive surgery, while 15 to 20 victims of dog bites will die this year. • Lots of people will probably agree with the statement by author Mark Twain, “The more I know about people, the more I like my dog.”

HEART ATTACK FACTS • 37% of all deaths in the United States are related to heart disease, making it the largest single cause of natural death. Heart disease kills twice as many people as all forms of cancer combined. The major causes are smoking, fatty diet, high blood pressure, obesity, stress, heredity, lack of exercise, and diabetes. It is an illness produced of man's environment. Before 1900, heart attacks were very rare. The rate of heart disease increased so sharply between 1940 and 1967 that the World Health Organization called it the world’s most serious epidemic. • Every single cell in the heart is guided by an electrical impulse which synchronizes the heartbeat so all muscle cells contract in unison to pump the blood. During a heart attack, the cells begin firing out of turn so the efficiency of the heart is lost and the blood does not get pumped. When doctors shock the heart, the shock overrides each cell’s individual firing mechanism and once again synchronizes every cell, hopefully getting them all to work together again.

FAMOUS CANADIANS:

RACHEL McADAMS

• The beautiful and talented actress Rachel McAdams hails from Ontario, growing up in the community of St. Thomas, raised by her nurse mother and truck driver father. She was a performer from an early age, but not in the acting arena. At age four, Rachel started figure skating and by age nine, was urged to move to Toronto to train as a pairs skater, an opportunity she turned down. As she tells it, “Getting up at 5:00 AM was a constant struggle. I used to get so nervous before competitions, I’d wake up in a cold sweat.” She still managed to endure competition until she was 18 when she hung up her skates to pursue an acting career. • Rachel entered Toronto’s York University, graduating from their theater program four years later. She landed some roles in Canadian television and films, receiving a Genie Award nomination (the Canadian equivalent of the Oscar) before moving on to Hollywood films. • The 2002 comedy The Hot Chick was the actress’ first U.S. film, but it was the 2004 popular teen movie Mean Girls that brought her notoriety, earning her two MTV Movie Awards. It was closely followed by The Notebook, which brought another MTV Award and cemented her box office star status. • After a series of successful films, Rachel took a well-deserved sabbatical, returning to Canada where she could, in her words, be “able to come home to a place where no one really cares what you do or who you are, and allow me a break from that life.” She did miss out on a few prize roles, such as the bond girl in Casino Royale and opposite Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible III.

• McAdams returned to the big screen in 2008 and picked up her stardom where she had left off with The Time Traveler’s Wife, Morning Glory, Midnight in Paris, and Sherlock Holmes. • McAdams has always carefully prepared herself for her roles. To accurately portray a wealthy Southern belle in The Notebook, she enrolled in etiquette classes and spent time in Charleston, South Carolina to train herself in the accent. For the role of a wealthy socialite in 2005’s Wedding Crashers, McAdams took instruction for her sailing certification to properly play in a boating scene. When starring in The Lucky Ones, a story about Iraq War soldiers home on leave, she trained at the U.S. Army boot camp at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. • During her free time, McAdams is committed to helping others. Following Hurricane Katrina, she aided in the clean-up efforts. She volunteers for Habitat for Humanity in St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada’s Alzheimer’s Association, the READ Campaign, and the United Way. A devoted environmentalist, she can be seen riding her bicycle around Toronto, and heats her home with renewable energy. • Although she has a U.S. green card, McAdams retains her Canadian citizenship and chooses to live in Toronto, where she putters in her garden. Cooking is her passion and she claims that she would love to open a restaurant if she weren’t an actress. “Truthfully,” she says, “I never really wanted to be a big movie star. I never even wanted to work outside of Canada, or outside of the theater.”

FAMOUS PHARMACISTS

Since September 25 is World Pharmacists Day, it seems like a good time for Tidbits to investigate some of history’s famous pharmacists and their contributions. • A young German pharmacist named Friedrich Serturner was the first to separate morphine from opium, a highly addictive medical and recreational narcotic and the main ingredient in laudanum. Serturner discovered morphine’s ability to relieve severe pain, and it was also initially used as a substitute for alcohol and opium dependency. Doctors then discovered that morphine’s continued use was even more addictive than the substances it was replacing.

• Hubert Humphrey, U.S. Vice President from 1965 to 1968 under President Lyndon B. Johnson, got his start as a pharmacist in his dad’s South Dakota pharmacy. He went on to serve as the mayor of Minneapolis and a U.S. Senator before being chosen as LBJ’s running mate. Humphrey ran for President in 1968, but was unsuccessful in his attempt to defeat Richard Nixon. • Pharmacist Wilbur Scoville created the Scoville Organoleptic Test, a scale for measuring the hotness of chile peppers. A Scoville Unit is a measure of the chemical capsaicin found in hot peppers that is responsible for their heat.

Take Alaska, for example. The state name comes from the Aleut word "alaxsxaq," which in turn comes from the Russian meaning "the object toward which the action of the sea is directed." • Those who study such things say that even fish can have distinct personalities. Within a single species, scientists have observed that some fish are quite adventurous, willing to go to great lengths to obtain food or a mate, while others are much more timid, eschewing daring feats altogether. *** Thought for the Day: "If a man does his best, what else is there?" -- General George S.

• It was French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte who made the following sage observation: "Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake." • Given the notoriety Las Vegas enjoys as a place for quick weddings, you might be surprised to learn that, technically, it is illegal in that city for a mustachioed man to kiss a woman. • In 1923, a man named Frank Hayes earned the distinction of becoming the first (and so far only) person to win a horse race posthumously. Hayes was actually a trainer rather than a jockey, and he was riding a 20-1 underdog named Sweet Kiss. It seems that Hayes suffered a heart attack in the midst of the race, but his body stayed in the saddle while Sweet Kiss beat the odds to cross the finish line first. For the rest of her life, the horse he rode was nicknamed "Sweet Kiss of Death." • In his spare time, Jim Cummings, a successful voice ac-

• Following a vacation at his country summer home, Scottish biologist and pharmacist Alexander Fleming returned to his lab to find that a fungus had developed in a stack of Petri dishes that had contained a staphylococcus culture. The bacteria had died all around the area containing the mold, prompting him to perform experiments over the next 20 years showing that the mold prevented growth of staphylococci, even when diluted 800 times. Fleming named his “mold juice” penicillin, and it was produced as an antibiotic that could cure numerous serious infectious diseases. For his work in the field of medicine, Fleming was awarded the 1945 Nobel Prize.

Tidbits Laughs

A couple of dog owners are arguing about whose pet is smarter. "My dog is so smart," says the first owner, "that every morning he waits for the paperboy to come around. He tips the kid and then brings the newspaper to me, along with my morning coffee." "I know," says the second owner. "How do you know?" asks the first. "My dog told me."
