Meet Sniffer & Tinni: A Real Life Fox & Dog Duo Who Will Star in Fairytale Storybooks for Kids

Torgeir Berge 1

Although Ylvis may pretend, nobody knows what the fox says better than Tinni, a Norwegian dog who has become best friends with one. The unlikely pair met while Tinni was on a walk in the forests of Norway with his owner Torgeir Berge, who happens to be a photographer. Berge named the fox Sniffer and has been capturing precious moments of the duo’s camaraderie. The pair shows how closely related dogs and foxes are as they walk side by side, play together, romp around, take naps, and cheese it up for the camera. Their friendship has inspired Berge to work towards banning the fox-fur trade in Norway and to do this he has teamed up with writer Berit Helberg to turn his photographs into a storybook for children. Proceeds from the published book will go toward funding the fight against fur-trade.

Television shows can be seriously addicting, drawing us in each week as new episodes about our favorite characters are put on the air. Some TV characters get so familiar in fact, they almost seem like family – we know just how they act in certain situations, thinking things like “oh, that’s such a Homer Simpson thing to do.” But how well do we really know the lives of the characters we love to watch? If you walked into their house would you be able to find your way around? Spanish artist and interior designer Iñaki Aliste Lizarralde has been creating highly detailed house plans for many of our favorite shows, giving us an overhead view of the places which house many of our favorite scenes.
