Rusty, the narcoleptic dachsund. I’m sure a few of you have already seen this, but it was on the news today, and I figured that anyone who hadn’t seen it yet needs to.
A narcoleptic and a dachsund, the dogs at the park must make fun of poor Rusty a lot…
After centuries of inbreeding, many breeds of dogs (if not all) develop some sort of genetic defect. In the case of Daschunds, it’s narcolepsy; it’s not really all that uncommon.
During the unit on states of consciousness, my psych class was shown a film on narcolepsy which included a clip of a daschund. I’m not sure if this is the same one (seeing as it looks like a documentary on sleep disorders, possibly), but a lot of us were having a hard time not to giggle too loud. It’s just so cute when he falls over like that. XD
Bah, couldn’t have done something exciting and entertaining like dropping dead instead?
Thats sad. =( Poor dog.
It’s hard not to giggle at a dachsund even if they don’t have narcolepsy. :get it?:
Hmm. That’s probably true.
