Fact of the Day: Cornwallis Greyhound

George Washington had a few pets, among them was a greyhound named Cornwallis after his old military rival/enemy General Cornwallis.

  3. Isn't it kind of odd to name a pet after your enemy? You'd be reminded of him every time you called your dog.

  4. I've heard that greyhounds are great dogs.

  5. George obviously had quite a sense of humour.
    Lord Cornwallis was not lean like a greyhound, more like
    a far too well fed - Labrador or Great Dane.
