Video: A Hunting Camp for Canine Couch Potatoes

Herewith your Friday dose of good humor, courtesy of The New York Times. This video follows a reporter and his bassett hound through a weekend camp designed to stimulate a house dog's hunting instinct. (You'll enjoy the scene of the reporter pouring scent straight from the bottle to form a scent trail.)

We all know a dog doesn't become a gun dog in a weekend. But, hey, still good to hear non-hunters thinking about the sport--and what their dogs were bred for.

The brilliant people here are the camp owners…talk about an easy way to turn a dollar.
