Well, does it matter if it's more or less pronounced in dogs? Whether it was or wasn't as pronounced, the point would stand -- people are more likely to remember weird behavior and associate it with said earthquake, even though it could be coincidental.
(E) however, is important, because if there is a *specific* kind of unusual behavior that is predictive of earthquakes, then this puts the argument into question -- sure, some dogs behavior oddly at any given time, but what if the odd behavior predictive of earthquakes is only common before earthquakes?
