Snorkel the Dashing Hound
Randall is the voice of FIVE USA. He doesn't just have a big booming American voice, he also has a cute Dachshund named, you guessed it, Snorkel. Snorkel or 'Snork' (named after the snorkel of a submarine, to which he bears an an uncanny resemblance) is 15 months old soon and was acquired from a breeder near Silverstone, Northamptonshire, in the English Midlands and apparently, he's from a long line of champions.
When they first got Snorky at 9 weeks he was lovely but it was like lightning had struck the house. It was a heck of a lot of work house training, etc. etc. etc. but in the end it all paid off. Snorkel used to have "separation anxiety " and it took time and the services of a behaviourist to sort him out.
Randall says he's a wonderful creature and getting Snorkel was one of the best things they ever did. The bottom pic is Snork at about 9 weeks old while the top pics are Snork now.
