The Fox And The Hound

Received several emails on this story! According to, Norwegian photographer Torgeir Berge took Tinni his German Shepherd on a walk, and they ran into this fox! Berge named the Fox “Sniffer.”

Now Tinni & Sniffer hang out all the time! Berit Helberg is writing a book on the duo with Berge- check out the deets.


Photos by Torgeir Berge. Title from Disney.



  1. Mary (the first) says:

    Sniffer must have been lonesome! (But not any more! 😀 )

  2. Apparently, the Fox say, “Hey, Tinni – let’s be pals!”

  3. Uh, Disney’s calling for the rights to their story. Assuming their copyright infringement suit for “The Fox and the Hound” gets thrown out.

  4. Oh my stinkin’ gosh! 😀

  5. Why is that. being. narrated. by. a. computerized. voice?

  6. lovley man and animals :):)

  7. robot narrator 😉

  8. while this is adorable foxes are stillwild and they are not vaccinated against most diseases like dogs so be careful, he lives in the wild where he can easily pick up disease like rabies or distemper. not unless this was someones pet who did vaccinate.

  9. I swear I never tire of interspecies friendships/snorgling. It’s one of my absolute favoritest things ever! 🙂

  10. What does the fox say? Do we finally know the answer to the mystery???

  11. Sometimes I really wonder what is going on in those little pet brains … What DO they think, when they act so uncommonly?

  12. There is actually no rabies in Norway. So Tinni is safe. 🙂

    Whole-warm-fuzzy-heartedly agree, nothing moves me quite like it!!

  14. “And we’ll always be friends forever, won’t we?”
    “Yeah, forever.”

  15. Yeah that bothered me too. Kinda took the warmth out of it.

  16. I would have rather just seen the pics…..

  17. And I must say, I do not think of dogs as diseases, but more as cures. 😉

    Do we know the situation of the photographer/author? He may be hearing impared or any other number of things which could limit his ability to read the story himself. I personally think the entire thing is beautiful!
