Coolest Vacations for Dog Lovers: Lundehund Gathering

Lundehund Gathering, Trondheim, Norway

Lundehunds were originally bred in Norway to hunt puffins by chasing them down into burrows. This means Lundehunds are about as flexible as snakes: triple jointed, with six-toed feet and the ability to bend their heads backward to touch their spine. The breed nearly went extinct, down to just two animals in the 1940s, before the Lundehund Klubb came to the rescue. Now there are a couple thousand happy, healthy dogs and an annual convention in Norway. Everybody triple jointed: to Trondheim in 2013! lundehund.no
