My apologies to long time readers who have seen this video, but we were watching the stunning bravery that Dennis the Vizsla Dog was demonstrating on his blog yesterday. Yes, Dennis protected his family from a horrendous amphibious assault. In the background of the video, you can hear the terror in their voices as he ruthlessly risks himself for their defense.
For some reason, it reminded us of the same bravery demonstrated by Qannik when we were attacked by a . . . ski jacket. This is almost like the opening sequence to Saving Private Ryan.
Don’t we all feel safer knowing that Dennis and Qannik are protecting us?

Requiem for a Rabbit
May 21, 2023
A poor bunny made a bad decision, so I wanted to pay my respects with a requiem for a rabbit. My dogs plotted their own event.
Way Back Wednesday
Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,700 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
Missed A Rabbit By A Hare
In a fumble of Sibe Quentin security, Typhoon almost caught another rabbit, though Hu-Dad has kidded him that he missed it by a hare.
Bravery and chivalry are NOT dead. The other day I defended my family from a hat! True story. It was sitting on a rock and I thought it was a very tiny very bad guy. I saved them all.
Qannik you are so brave to protect you pack from that Ski Jacket! Looks like we need you around to protect us from the washing baskets – we don’t like them!
Licks and lots of slobber,
Lexi and Jasper the Danes
So cute! Dennis is adorable at how proud of himself he is at his bravery…and Qannik’s sounds of bravery are inspiring the two doggies in this house to also be very brave in the face of…nothing! 😉
Love both videos!! I totally get why the rock and the ski jacket were threatening – excellent job protecting your families Qannik and Dennis!
thank dogness that such brave souls exist in our world. Its a safer place becuz of both of dem brave dogs…willing to risk life and limb…
wags, wiggles & slobbers
Qannik! You are so brave! I especially like the way to approach with caution! And the scritches at the end of the video was great!!
Rusty and I will keep the balloons under khontrol!
Oh Qannik – my human was laughing at your video – just like she laughed at Dennis’s but I totally see your point! I would have been suspicious too! Humans just don’t know all the DANGEROUS things we protect them from!! 😉

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie
I think we should declare a national holiday to show our appreciation to them both!!!
Yes! Qannik and Dennis are soooo brave!
Kisses and hugs
What I do is I bark the thunder away when it comes, but jackets, no, they have arms, nor would I want to take on a giant sea turtle who was sleeping. Thats just foolish!
Specialize, you guys, thats what I do!
So heroic! That was almost like watching it thru the eyes of Rusty – love those between the ear shots. Aw, Kiska does try to be helpful, doesn’t she?
jack a-roo & miss moo
Qannik is SO funny! What a brave pup! And I just love Rusty sitting on your lap, so cute.
At least Qannik got a few barks in! I loved it when he looked at you like, “Hey, didn’t you notice that ski jacket over there? Do something!”
I feel safer, especially knowing that both coasts are protected!
I’m not sure which part cracked me up more — King Rusty on his lap throne or Qannik defending The Herd from the jacket! Hu-Dad, how did you manage to film it without even a snicker of laughter? I love seeing The Herd in action!
Great work, Dennis and Qannik. Recently, I have had to protect that mom from two so-called lamps that she allowed to infiltrate her bedroom. She was oblivious to the great danger they posed, and it took several weeks of me growling and knocking them over before she finally removed them. I expected praise for my bravery, but so far none has come from her. What’s up with that?
What would we do without them? Those sneaky rocks and ski jackets – you can never turn your back on them!!
It’s okay Qannik. I once heard of a serial ski jacket. The Herd will thank you one day.
