New Species of Dog Discovered
February 16, 2008

The aKC announced this week a brand new species of dog. Originally thought to be a dachshund, genetic testing has proven that the Indiana Nesting Hound, is, in fact, a separate species from the more common Dachshund, or wiener dog. These two specimens below are in their semi-nested state. You can click the image to see a larger version. Make sure to wait for it to fully load so you can see the nesting process in action.

Never woulda know it wasn't a dachshund - especially from the blue merle tri-color coat. They are cute.

All dogs belong to the same species - canine.

Red Monkey says: No kidding. And the post was HUMOR, not scientific fact. Duh.
