These are elepits. Elepits are created by placing a sock on the nose of a pit bull, thus creating the illusion of an elephant, er elepit. The first picture is Gracie, the elepit. The second picture is Gus the elepit.

The socks do not have to be clean, since pit bulls in their natural state delight in all manner of stinkyness. No pit bulls or socks were harmed in the creation of elepits.

Hibernation in dachshunds

Bears are perhaps the most famous hibernating mammals. A lesser known, but equally skilled hibernator is the dachshund.  

Is it spring yet?

No? Didn't think so!

During the winter months a dachshund is able to hibernate for approximately 23 1/2 hours per day. The other 30 minutes of the day are used for scarfing down meals, peeing, and collecting attention. Unlike bears, who hibernate alone, dachshunds prefer to hibernate in groups of 2 to 4.

Hibernating buddies

Pit Bulls on the other hand, do not hibernate. They simply play hard, collapse for 30 minutes, and start all over again.

Just about ready...
