A video taking the Internet by storm — to put it mildly, it has already garnered over 19 million views on Facebook — features a pair of adorable dachshunds regaled in Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadiens gear playing a little bit of ball hockey.

The video stars Crusoe the Celebrity Dachshund and his brother Oakley. And suffice to say, these pups have some mad hockey skills.

And the entire video:

Crusoe even has has his own website, on which his biography is detailed as follows (via Puck Daddy):

My name is Crusoe and I am a miniature black and tan dachshund. But don’t take ‘miniature’ too much to heart. I was named after Robinson Crusoe for my deep sense of adventure and my natural ability to instill fascination in the public eye. My tagline is “the wiener dog who thinks he’s more of a celebrity than he really is”, but I think at this point I pretty much am a celebrity!

I was born in Montreal, then raised near Mont Tremblant, Quebec for the first couple years of my life. It was then that I moved to the city, where I still am today, in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. However, I take a lot of weekend trips back to my original home (now considered my chalet) in the country, or to Toronto to visit my brother Oakley.

There you have it. Suffice to say, this is the most hockey action fans of the Maple Leafs and the Canadiens see once the NHL playoffs get started. You know, because no Canadian team actually qualified for the postseason. What’s that all aboot?
