captain kirk's great dane's name

Did I even see Star Trek: Generations? Because I swear I don't remember James Tiberius Kirk with a Great Dane, much less the dog's name. (It was Butler.) But somebody at Dog.com does remember - and they've put together the mother of all pop-culture dog trivia pages.
  • What was Spuds Mackenzie's real name?
  • Which breed were artist Pablo Picasso's dogs?
  • What is the moral of the Aesop fable "The Dog and the Wolf?"

Think you know this stuff? Go get 'em boy.

(The answers above in order: Spuds was actually Honey Tree Evil Eye. Picasso had Afghan Hounds, with one Dalmation and an Ibizan thrown in. The fable's moral is "Better to starve free than be a fat slave." Aesop was a slave, by the way.)

You did see a Great Dane with Kirk. Piccard and Kirk were in Kirk's old home (in the Nexis)--Butler appeared at the door and woofed.
