And SD, I really wanted to one-up you by posting my pic of my two lying on top of each other on the couch--eight big feet just dangling there. But the only copy I can find readily is on photobucket, and can't be posted without being blurred out. |
So I'll just have to content myself with congratulating you for your historic picture of the elusive Big Foot. How much time did you have to spend stalking him before you could catch the shot?
I think you should contact National Geographic. They're bound to be interested. And maybe they'll pay you something for it Or maybe you could try National Enquirer.

I must admit that watching HDD chew on a toy, (he still has his original set of dewclaws, front only) is interesting. He really does use them as thumbs. And he's not nearly as bad as the dobes were about bringing me a toy to hold while they slobbered and chewed on it. Which is nice. |
But I don't know for sure if that is just because he has the dew claws...in general, he uses his feet for a lot more things than any of my dobes did.

|Rosemary||A lot of French herding/guardian breeds have double rear dewclaws. You've mentioned Beauceron, but Briards, and Great Pyrenees are also supposed to have them, and Pyrenean Shepherds may have them.|

I am thankful our Mr. Spocko doesn't have ANY extra toes or dew claws. Dremeling his nails is already a tramatic weekly event, with only (4) nails per leg !

|MeadowCat||Our kitty's toes did. As far as I know, they do. Polydactyl cats are often called "Hemingway" cats, because so many of the cats on Key West that are descended from Hemingway's cats are polydactyl (fun fact! https://www.wideopenpets.com/story-e...six-toed-cats/).|

|melbrod||Do the extra toes always have claws?|

These are both great! |
(Rosemary, I owned a polydactyl cat - I loved her extra toes!)

Trouble's left front foot. You can see the normal dewclaw, the thumb dewclaw, and the little extra toe between the thumb and the first normal toe.

Trouble's left hind foot. You can see the dewclaw.

Trouble had seven toes on his left front foot and six toes on his right front, with both feet having thumbs. He had five normal toes on his hind feet, but had rear dewclaws. He had a total of 23 toes.
And yes, the Hemmingway cats are polydactyls, descended from one of his own cats.

Goodness, such a baby in that picture. I want to say he's ten now?
I owned his father, as well.

"Bigfoot" Confirmed Sighting This Morning in TX !
San Antonio- A verified sighting of a new Texas Bigfoot was made this morning, apparently while the creature was still asleep! Unlike the fuzzy upright biped image shown in the 1967 Patterson-Gimlin film, shot in northern CA, this particular Bigfoot picture was captured in unprecedented HD resolution. This Texas example appears to be a four legged, short haired version of the Bigfoot species. Local biologists have named it Doberus Giga Pedes until further scientific consensus can be gathered on this exciting discovery!
