Dog Eats Fox Alive!

Sorry about the title. Almost makes me want to say “Made you look!”

But if my co-bloggers here can post pictures of cats and other cute animals, I can post pictures of cute animals.

This is Pepper (I may have had her pic up here before). She used to come up on my back deck and gaze out over the hillside where she and her brother Toot lived and played. (More pics of Pepper and other beasties HERE.)

I thought of her today when I saw this video. You may not know it, but red foxes just may be the most beautiful critters inside fur. I call ‘em “jewelry that walks around on four legs.”

Which is why I loved this video:

    You can tell how totally relaxed and unconcerned that fox is. Rolling onto its back is a sign of absolute trust for animals like that it’s like ‘hi, you can kill me in two seconds now, but I trust you won’t’

    And yes, beautiful animals – sad they’ve been hunted for fur for so often :(

    You’ve got her pic up here every day — it’s your “about the author” picture in the sidebar!

    The video is adorable. I’d love to hear the backstory — obviously the dogs and fox are very familiar with each other. I wonder if the dog raised the fox pup?

    That’s on par in adorability with sled dogs playing with polar bears.

      My understanding is that the polar bears come around for the “extra” food the sled dog operator puts out for the dogs. Unsurprisingly, he also runs polar bear tours on his property. He loses a lot of dogs to bears, especially compared to other sled dog operations in the area. It’s a cute video, and the bears don’t _always_ kill the dogs, but still.

      The fox video, though, totally sweet. =)

    That’s not a red fox in the video.

    I hardly even understand. That dog had its whole mouth around that fox’s head! But they just keep on playing. Makes foxes seem pretty undangerous and ridiculously cute.

    When we lived in Littleton CO a fox liked to sun himself on our back hillside. One day I saw one of our cats stalking the fox. I went out and retrieved the cat, thinking it would not end well. I also spotted a melanistic (coal black) fox on the other side of town. They are truly beautiful animals.

    Hank, have you seen this:

    A wonderfully staid English gentleman narrates the adventures of a fox who visits his London garden. There’s a few more vids and an entire website that are well worth a visit.

    I’ve seen red foxes and agree with you, they are beautiful!

    Here in Australia, red foxes do so much damage. Beautiful animals, but in the wrong locale, …
