Five Facts about Ein from Cowboy Bebop

One of the most famous corgi dogs in current popular culture is Ein. This extremely intelligent dog is from the show Cowboy Bebop (both the original anime and live action remake). In the show this canine was artificially enhanced by a research facility. There isn't specifics on how they achieved the feat, but one of the fun reveals in the show is Ein's high intelligence. Here are five additional facts about Ein:

  1. The barks that are included in the show are done by the producer's actual Corgi.
  2. Many folks believe "ein" is short for "Einstein"; though I don't believe that's confirmed.
  3. After Cowboy Bebop, there was a surge of Corgis named "Ein".
  4. In Japanese, when dogs are depicted as barking is "wan" (ワン, pronounced the same as "one"), hence the name "Ein".
  5. A similar type of dog appears in the RWBY series (the character of Zwei) who has a comparable amount of intelligence.
