21 – Why Are You a Xoloitzcuintli?

This week, we discuss a dog both of us can barely pronounce! Seriously, what is a Xoloitzcuintli?! After this week was nearly cancelled because Caitlyn has a sinus infection (sorry for the stuffy nose voice in advance), the episode takes a turn for the interesting with Aztec sacrifices, Chupacabras, and an expedition. There’s also an appearance by Christopher Columbus, and Caitlyn gives a tutorial on how to be a real life treasure hunter.

This weeks question of the week: what did you want to be when you grew u that as an adult you realized was never going to be possible for you? Or you know, what did you want to be, and actually ended up being? Send us your answers at whyareyouadog@gmail.com or use the contact form here.

Outro song is Yolo Xolo by Bizaardvark.

13 – Why Are You an Australian Shepherd?

Happy Thanksgiving! This week on the podcast Caitlyn and Kyle take you on a journey in their longest episode yet. A journey that includes an arguments about the opening about the show, a misnamed dog, a lot of topography, and some unnecessary information about crofts. Be sure to listen to the very end of the episode for some bonus content that didn’t quite make it into the greater context of the show!

This week’s outro song is The Aussie’s Cowboy Song (Australian Shepherd) by Nancy Simmonds on her album Musical Tails, 2nd Litter.

6 – Why Are You a Dachshund?

Dachshunds, why are you a dog?! Our latest Dogtober fest dog is the Dachshund, which have many, many different nicknames. This is the longest episode so far and for the first 15 minutes Kyle and Caitlyn read some corrections and listener mail, and then talk about Lord of the Rings and some other nonsense.

If you want to skip directly to the dachshunds, go to minute 15:00.  In this episode Dogtoberfest almost hit a snag with the surprising appearance of Egypt, Queen Victoria makes another guest appearance, Caitlyn forgets the word “lips”, and badgers get picked on for no reason.

Outro song is The Ballad of Wiener-Dog (from the Wiener-Dog OST). It can be listened to in it’s entirety here.

Tune in next week for week three of Dogtoberfest with our Boxer episode.

5 – Why Are You a Schnauzer?

Schnauzers, why are you a dog?! Happy (early) Dogtoberfest! Caitlyn and Kyle will be doing a new German dog every week starting this week and through the whole month of October.

This week is Schnauzers! They’re multipurpose, dog-of-all-jobs dogs who are true utility players. The only thing they can’t do is yarn crafts. It’s also a 3-for-1 episode since there are three sizes of Schnauzer and they all do different dog jobs. Learn about their heroics in WWI and WWII, as well as a dog that led to some celebrity violence, and enjoy a brand new segment on funny dog show names!

Outro song is You’re So Irresistible (Miniature Schnauzer) by Nancy Simmonds off her album Musical Tails, 2nd Litter. (Guys, we just really like Nancy Simmonds.)
