On Caturday we’re extra entertained by the sight of this ambitious kitty trying their best to keep up with a teeny-tiny Hot Wheels car zooming around on a Criss Cross Track:

Let’s join the Department of Mesmerizing Zoetropes as they marvel at these spellbinding phenakistoscope discs created by Graphic Designer Drew Tetz (previously featured here).

Highlights from my first three months making analog animations on my lasercutter.
Phenakistoscopes were one of the first forms of animation, using the persistence of vision effect to blur multiple images into one moving picture. Early forms relied on slits & mirrors to trick the eye, modern versions often use a strobe or a camera’s shutter speed to trigger the animation. These lasercut discs spring to life when placed on a record player & viewed through a camera.

Follow Drew Tetz on Instagram to check out more of his awesome animated records.

Because sometimes what you need most is a very eager and persistent husky working hard to wake up an enormous pig who clearly doesn’t care at all that there’s a dog hopping on its back and prodding its bum with, barking all the while:

Today the Department of Phenomenal Pencil Art is marveling at the latest creation by Texas-based artist and maker Bobby Duke of Duke Woodworking on YouTube (previously featured here). Duke carved a miniature pencil on the end of a standard size pencil and then carved an even tinier pencil on the end of the miniature pencil. He calls it “Pencil Inception” and it’s awesome.

Has science gone too far? I think it may have.
I hope you enjoy…….“Pencil Inception”

Speaking of winter fun, here’s another happy doggo who loves to sled. However, unlike Secret the Australian Shepherd, this pupper only wants to sled while riding piggyback with his human:

Hooray, Lucas the Spider is back! The last time we saw Lucas he was playing in the bathroom sink. Then he disappeared down the drain in search of a new adventure. Now, thanks to animator Joshua Slice (and his young nephew Lucas), it appears Lucas the fuzzy jumping spooder has been captured by one of the humans in his house. 

But he doesn’t seem terribly concerned about the situation. Should Lucas be worried? Watch and find out!

Haru the Shiba Inu is an awesomely patient doggo. Watch as her humans set up a winding path of 1000 dominoes right in front of her. She’s clearly curious and excited, but mostly resists the temptation to get involved. And then, once all the dominoes are up, Haru is given the honor of knocking them down:

Follow Haru the Shiba Inu on Instagram and YouTube for plenty more photos and videos of this goodest girl being incredibly cute and charming.

You know a doggo is cut out for sheepherding when they go out of their way to find some sheep for herding. When he was only 7 months old, Rocky the border collie pupper wandered out into the countryside of Devon, England and rounded up a flock of nine sheep that he then herded all the way into his human’s house.

The human in question is Rosalyn Edwards, who had been working in the kitchen when she heard something out of the ordinary.

“I was in the kitchen and heard a noise. I turned around and the sheep were just standing there. There were about nine of them. My son and husband had gone out into the field, and the gate was left open. Rocky got them out and led them to the house. This is the first time he’s done something like this. He’s been out with the sheep before but this time the gate was open.”

Brief video footage reveals that the rather confused sheep were crammed in together in the doorway between Edwards’ kitchen and living room.

“I took the children into another room and then tried to guide the sheep out. They went right around from the kitchen and left again through the porch. Rocky did look quite pleased with himself, but he’s going to need more training. He brought a whole new meaning to ‘bringing the sheep home.”

Rocky the sheepdog-in-training is our midweek reminder that, whatever you do, do it awesomely.
