Gratuitous HFH Video

Its been a long time - too long according to their Uncle Pervy - since I posted a video of the Hounds From Hell. Despite repeated threats I have not sold them to the gypsies and they are making life as interesting as always.

Being dachshunds they are equipped with hunting instincts and more particularly burrowing instincts One of our previous daschies (my darling Bundnie) use to wrap herself in her blanket so tightly that on occasion I would have to liberate her from her cocoon.

The Hounds from Hell have taken to getting under the sofa covering in the den and playing a game of daschie hide and seek.

The other evening I was waking our Nora, whose mother you may recall is a champion wild boar hunter here in Italy. Our route took us by the residence of the Saudi Ambassador on Via Regina Margherita which is guarded by a trio of soldiers. One of the young, and I must add cute, soldiers saw us come and started to laugh and said to me: She's hunting for boar! I was a bit startled and asked him what he meant and how he knew she was a boar hunter. It turns out his father hunts boar in Tuscany with a pack of daschies and Nora was doing all the right moves. Right now she's pretty vicious when she spots a cat, I'm just not sure how she'd be when confronted with a 90 kilo (200 lbs) piece of wild porker???

Cute video! I didn't know that dachshunds are used to hunt wild boars -- those little dogs are tough! I thought they were just bred to go down rabbit holes.
