Canadian photographer Jess Bell has a flair for capturing unique and artistic images of animals in action.

He recently organised some of his very talented dog-owning friends (and their exceptional pups of course) to participate in coloured powder photo shoots. The results are bright, crisp and dynamic! 

These crazy colours and dynamic swirls are captured in-camera in real time and on location. As a result, every single image is unique and highlights the amazing differences between how dogs of various breeds and body shapes move.

Rush | Border Collie

Nyero | Mudi

Slice | Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever

Gemma And Lyric | Mix & Coolie

Gnash | Malinois

Lyric | German Coolie

Style | Border Collie

True | Australian Shepherd

Lottie | Border Collie

These photos highlight how hard our dogs work for us when asked, and frequently for nothing more than the toss of a toy or a dried biscuit. However, for them is pure joy to run freely or catch a disc.

Amazing dogs, vibrant colours, excellent shots!

It has been impossible to ignore the fact that the American government has been shut down for nearly a month. Add onto that the fact that Britain is starting to face the reality of the impending Brexit withdrawal from the EU in March.

Two words: DRAMA QUEENS! 

Meanwhile, in Canada, things are pretty chill as usual, and proud Canadians are expressing their love for our wonderful Nation.

Hopefully the issues in the States and Britain will be solved soon.

In the meantime, we Canadians can hold our head high and keep being the amazing society we are!

It’s off to Europe and a date with Mysterio in the first trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home, which has arrived at last!

Not bad at all! But don’t get fooled by the trailer.

Mysterio is a master of illusion and one iconic villain.

NYC pigeons have a reputation for being flying trash rats who would gladly eat a rotten piece of hamburger meat out of a dead hyena’s asshole (hey, many of God’s creatures need protein).

But this pigeon proves that #NotAllNYCPigeons are uncouth trash eaters. Some are elegant and refined creatures, and you better treat them like the dignitaries they are!

Steven Pesantez and Mariel Mitkowski were at the Staten Island Ferry Terminal last Thursday when they noticed a pigeon just standing on a water fountain. Steven figured that the pigeon needed a helping hand, specifically a helping hand to turn on the damn fountain, so as Mariel filmed, he turned on the water and watched as the feathered ball of refinement delicately quenched its thirst while getting a facial (not that kind, you nasty trick!).

After the clip made the rounds on Instagram, Gothamist interviewed Steven about the moment the graceful pigeon made him famous!

Watch as the pigeon politely stands there waiting for a human to make themselves usefull FOR ONCE!

All jokes aside, pigeons are not flying rats. They are highly intelligent and gentle creatures that mate FOR LIFE! Humans only wish.

Canada and the United States have always had a fraught relationship, dating all the way back to the War of 1812, when the U.S. attempted to invade, failed miserably, and had their capital destroyed in retaliation.

Sure, the two countries became friends and allies in the two hundred years since, but tensions continue to occasionally simmer. In 2018, for example, leaders on both sides of the border exchanged some pretty harsh words during the long negotiation of a new trade deal.

In this period of renewed political hostility, it’s worth taking a moment to point out the more lighthearted cultural exchanges between the two countries.

So, listed below are seven things about Canada that confuse the “heck” (this is Canada, we’re keeping things polite) out of Americans. These items are each accompanied by Tweets from over the years from baffled Americans and a few ironic Canadians.

Enjoy! And let’s remember that it’s ok, even important, to laugh at each other and ourselves once in a while. Just like good friends.

Americans are confused…

1- THAT CANADA IS AN INDEPENDENT COUNTRY

Seriously, you’re not the only country in North America, or the world. Also, the fact we are not a violent society, killing each other, seems weird to them.

2- THAT PEOPLE SPEAK FRENCH

Yes bitches we have 2 official languages, but many of us speak at least 3 or 4! How many do you speak? 

3- THAT CANADA IS A MONARCHY

Yup, many Americans have absolutely no clue that Canada is a monarchy and shares a queen with dozens of other countries.

4- BY THE CANADIAN MONEY

Canadian currency is awesome and not the typical wrinkly, gross, smelly paper. Canadian bills are made of polymer.

5 – THAT CANADA IS HUGE

Canada is the second largest country in the world by area. The first is Russia.

6- BY THE CANADIAN SPELLING

Canadian spelling is somewhere between British and American spelling and we’re not apologising for it.

7- BY THE COLD

Yes, winter temperatures are generally lower. But that’s awesome too.

Rose, the bulldog puppy, became the overnight sweetheart of the internet after a video of her with guilty eyes went viral.

Rose’s human walked up on her mischievously loving on some mud, and when she realised she did a wrong, she turned on those puppy dog eyes and made the same guilty face you probably made when a family member walked in on you on Christmas morning in the kitchen with a mouthful of the cake you were all planning to eat after lunch.

@sarahashlev tweeted the first perfect movie of 2019 after her auntie and Rose’s human sent her footage of the newly crowned mud queen rolling around in wet dirt heaven.

The video is pure perfection all the way to the last moment. It’s like a Disney-fied Blair Witch Project.

That horrified scream at the end is priceless.

Run, Rose! Ruin everything!

Emma Stone, Olivia Colman & Rachel Weisz. All  talented, plus Emma and Olivia hilarious, and Rachel… What a hypnotic beauty she is.

I love these ladies!
