* ExtremeOmnivore: Zigzagged. Teddy is one, eating furniture and even (apparently) baby Jake's diaper. Most of these had no ill effects on him, but when he ate [[spoiler: a rock]], he could not digest it and it made him ill (however, he was OK). Butterscotch once [[spoiler: ate a sock]], and that made him sick. Martha and Skits eat a lot of weird things too, but nothing a real dog would eat. T.D. also used to eat roly-poly bugs as a baby and is not grossed out at the thought of eating blue mangoes (which smell like squid and old socks and taste like cheese). However, even he is grossed out by the thought of Teddy eating Jake's diaper.

* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Despite the fact that Martha is the only known talking dog in her world, in general, nobody seems freaked by it. The most common reaction to her talking is no reaction, though sometimes people may be mildly surprised, then simply decide to just go with it. In "Ain't Nuthin' But a Pound Dog," Kazuo of the animal shelter thinks that he's having a joke played on him when Martha's dad calls up asking if a talking dog has been taken into the animal shelter, but when he actually does finally hear Martha talk, he just takes it in stride. Oh, and you would think that if there were a talking dog in town, everyone would know about it, but apparently not.

* TrademarkFavouriteFood: Martha has steak and alphabet soup, one of the babies has applesauce.

* CassandraTruth: In "Skits and Mr Scruffles", Milo meets Skits, who he calls "Mr Scrffles" and his dad thinks he's an imaginary friend.
