Coco Chan, the corn eating golden retriever from Japan, has died.

COCO: February 17, 2003 - September 11, 2014. Coco's happy life was well documented by her owners, who lovingly recorded their beloved pet in over a hundred videos on her YouTube channel. She can be seen as a puppy in a fuzzy white cape, learning basic commands. As she grew older, she ate tons of fruit and vegetables, and became famous for eating corn on the cob adorably and efficiently. She patiently watches as her owner mashes potatoes and sculpts them into a mini sculpture of a Golden Retriever. She finishes off half a melon and at the end of this video, beautifully models two versions of melon rind hats. She jumps for noodles in this overhead perspective slow motion video entitled A dog such as the Jaws. Coco gets a good brushing before being transformed into GOLDEN LION, and she sweetly wears a tiara of flowers in DANDELION DOG. Dog Pez begins as an unpacking video of an interesting toy and then displays the owner's developing mastery of shooting treats at his dog and her obliging retrieval of them, finally catching one treat shot out of the dispenser directly into her mouth. She lies calmly and patiently as COCO's claw has increased. And she performs adorably again, although not completely accurately, in this shell game called Which one? The darling Coco touched the hearts of many internet viewers and she will be greatly missed.

Walter Benjamin for Children

Walter Benjamin presented "True Dog Stories" on September 27, 1930, as part of Radio Berlin's youth programming. Thoughtful but sometimes oblique commentaries on human society, Benjamin's radio shows have been called "Enlightenment for Children" and "NPR for weirdos," but an interview with the editor of their recent translations into English gives much greater context. Some essays have been re-recorded in German (including the dog episode, track 16), and Börne's original poodle letter is also online.

A Who Wore It Best poll? Glass: "no question, the dog would win it."

Ira Glass dressed as a dog dressed as Ira Glass. A few days ago: "I learned on Twitter this weekend that the annual "Pupkin" Halloween dog costume contest in Fort Greene Brooklyn was won by a dog dressed as me. This is a level of fame I’ve never heard of before and I guess I feel ... um, flattered?" Subsequently: Elna Baker makes a costume. Result: Ira as dog as Ira. [more inside]

The State of the American Dog

Reviled, pit bulls have become representative. There is no other dog that figures as often in the national narrative—no other dog as vilified on the evening news, no other dog as defended on television programs, no other dog as mythologized by both its enemies and its advocates, no other dog as discriminated against, no other dog as wantonly bred, no other dog as frequently abused, no other dog as promiscuously abandoned, no other dog as likely to end up in an animal shelter, no other dog as likely to be rescued, no other dog as likely to be killed. In a way, the pit bull has become the only American dog, because it is the only American dog that has become an American metaphor—and the only American dog that people bother to name.

It’s a dog-eat-dog world down there at the South Pole

The Art of Antarctic Cooking
What comprises “Antarctic culinary history,” Anthony writes, is “a mere century of stories of isolated, insulated people eating either prepackaged expedition food or butchered sea life.” It helped if some of these isolated, insulated people knew their way around the kitchen. “The cook, however good or bad, is an artist whose simple vocation is to make others lives happier,” observed chef Raymond Oliver. More magician than artist, a cook with an Antarctic expedition ranked as one of its most important members. His kitchen little more than a Primus stove, his ingredients either canned or scrounged, he conjured nourishing dishes as if from the gelid air.

The goat says "Meh"

Visualize a comic book, in your language, and imagine what would be written in the text balloon coming from the mouth of an animal. Now translate it. Derek Abbott of The University of Adelaide (previously) has compiled "the world’s biggest multilingual list" of animal sounds, commands, and pet names.
