Watch these dachshunds try (and adorably fail) to play hockey

Dog hockey. 

Yup, that’s right—it’s totally a thing, and it’s incredible. As you’ll see, two dogs by the name of Crusoe (apparently a celebrity dachshund) and Oakley went one-on-one in a recent matchup.

Fortunately, the game never gets so heated that the two dogs trade paw punches; instead, they taking turns chewing on the ball and not exactly understanding what they’re supposed to do. But they look cute doing it, so what does it really matter?

Also, since the video is on Crusoe’s Facebook page, it’s hard not to imagine an actual dog responding to people’s comments, which makes moments such as this one extra-great.


Oh, and this one, too:


Anyway, here’s to many more sporting misadventures with Crusoe and Oakley. Maybe they’ll even be at the Olympics this summer.
