According to the Dachshund Club of America, Inc., dachshunds love to dig and burrow, which is a deeply entrenched instinct from their roots as hunting animals.

Scooter Riding Canine
Riding a bike or scooter or balancing on a ball are just a few of the many tricks this adorable Chinese dog has learned to do, and he even has a special costume and glasses to wear when riding.

Laughter Is Good for You
Watching and chuckling at the antics of animals like cats and dogs as they cavort on videos offers more than entertainment value. The staff at Mayo Clinic reports laughter offers short-term benefits such as stress reduction and increased circulation and long-term benefits like stronger immune systems and better moods. If you are feeling tired or stressed, you may want to self-prescribe a few minutes to watch some funny videos starring one of your favorite animals to help you feel happier and more relaxed.
