This French Bulldog puppy is stuck on its back.
Although I’m not sure if it’s all canine or not.
I think, with all its difficulties in rolling over, there might be some turtle in its bloodline.

Archie the dachshund apparently loves his pool.
Lap after lap, round and round he goes.
The rhythmic splashing sounds he produces while making his steady laps around this kiddie wading pool are soothing to me for some reason.
It’s a week for mixing water and animals apparently. To see another animal enjoying splashing around, check out my this post from earlier in the week of an elk calf playing in a mud puddle.

I got a copy of this video in my e-mail the other day and had to share for all you fans of both sports and dogs.
I know we’re in the midst of football season, but this is a basketball-related one.
He dribbles … he scores!
I love an amiable hound who is eager to participate and please.

I am a non-smoker and it chaps my butt when I see cigarette butts lying about.
They’re gross and not going to decompose anytime soon.
They multiply faster than bunnies, it seems. There’s definitely a never-ending supply of them.
I finally ran across one way to recycle them – clean the filters and use the fibers in them to create yarn and knit.
Treehugger has the story about Chilean designer Alexandra Guerrero and her latest creations.
I figured since Aunt B. is planning on taking up spinning yarn and is a non-smoker this might not appeal to her.
However, I know she and Ms. Wigglebottom might be more interested in this option – Knitting With Dog Hair.
I’ve got some mutts who will be willing to contribute to a lovely scarf or cableknit sweater.

As a kid the image of that bullet blasting through the apple by Harold Edgerton just fascinated me for some reason.
I guess it’s because it just proved the old magician’s saying, “The hand is quicker than the eye.”
So much happens around us that our human eyes aren’t capable of seeing – the flap of a hummingbird’s wings or the rubber of a balloon coming unwrapped from around a mass of water.
Just admit, we’re all suckers for slow motion photography and the Discovery Channel is trying to capitalize on this fact with their new show Time Warp.
As the owner of a dog which freely uses her tongue for kisses and lapping up water, I found this video from the show pretty informative.
It turns out a dog forms a bowl or spoon with its tongue by curling it down and under toward the chin and lifting the water into the mouth. If the tongue curled upward it would splash the water into the nose.
For more super high speed videos, visit Vision Research. They’ve got tons of super slow motion stuff.
PopFi has links to super slowmo still photography.
