The Fox and the Hound

Hello everyone!  The video I am sharing today is a one minute, heartwarming video about a fox...very sweet.  This happened in Kent, England, which is where my grandparents on my father's side were born!  Like all the videos I share, I found this one on YouTube.  :)

The photo I am sharing today is one that I took a couple of weeks ago...on a visit to a farm.  This dog was quite sweet and I decided to take a photo of him.  You just need to click on the image to see a larger view.

Quotation:  A dog will teach you unconditional love.  If you can have that in your life, things won't be so bad.
- Robert Wagner

  11. Foxes and England - certainly go together. And that dog looks so gentle and kind. Dogs are wonderful pets. We lost our Golden Retriever almost two years ago and still miss her very much!

  14. Todos os animais são doces, temos é que compreender os seus instintos naturais, pior são os outros animais ditos mais inteligentes, que mantam por prazer.

  15. En toda mi vida solo he conocido dos casos de zorros domesticados. En ninguno de ellos los zorros alcanzaron una conducta tan confiada como el del video. Un abrazo de Miguel.

    In all my life I have met only two cases of domesticated foxes. In none of them the foxes reached so trusting behavior like the video. A hug from Miguel.
