the nose of a dog

“A dog can detect a teaspoon sugar diluted in a million gallons of water: two Olympic-sized pools full.”

Currently reading Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell, and Know by Alexandra Horowitz. A bit tortuous when the family pup is half a world away, but nonetheless enlightening about dogs and their awe-inspiring talents.

A World of Paper

Scott Coello keeps creating nice work, but his animation ‘She Farted and Created the World‘ remains one of my favorites. It illustrates the evolution of the world with scraps of found paper, and it all starts with one Big Bang. I guess I’m not the only one to like it, since it was recently shortlisted on the Virgin Media Shorts, and the dedication of the film to his dog Maggie is certainly an effective selling point.
