We were traveling in the Westfjords of Iceland in the summer of 2012 and hoping to see the elusive Arctic fox, Iceland's only wild mammal. With little success, we headed to Heydalur, where there is a very nice farm/hotel/campground with opportunities for hot potting, hiking, kayaking and horseback riding. The owners of the hotel have a dog who has befriended an Arctic fox, and, where you find one, you often find the other. The two like to wrestle and roughhouse with each other, but the dog definitely has a distinct size advantage over the tiny fox. The hound often grabs the fox by the tail, dragging him all over. We felt sorry for the poor fox, but he was a clear glutton for punishment and constantly went back to the dog for more. We hope that you enjoy this video of their unusual playdate!
