Q: Name a breed of dog that starts and ends with the same letter of the alphabet. Drop that letter at both ends, and if you have the right dog, the remaining letters phonetically will name some animals. What's the dog and what are the animals?It's a bit of a stretch to say that the remaining letters are pronounced exactly like the name of some animals.
Edit: My clue was "stretch" referring to the shape of this dog. The puzzle also reminded me of this Sprint commercial
A: Dachshund --> "achshun" --> Oxen
