Let’s go to Idaho and have a slumber party inside this giant beagle! His name is ‘Sweet Willy’ and he’s a bed and breakfast located just outside the town of Cottonwood, Idaho. It’s called the Dog Bark Park Inn and it was built by Frances Conklin and Dennis Sullivan, who spent eighteen months building their awesome canine hotel. The inn offers two double bedroom and, as you’d hope, pet accommodations as well. They even leave a plate of dog-shaped cookies on your pillow.
So who’s coming with us? Visit the Dog Bark Park Inn website to book a reservation.

A water droplet can rebound completely without spreading from a superhydrophobic surface. The photo above is a long exposure image showing the trajectory of such a droplet as it bounces. In the initial bounces, the droplet leaves the surface fully, following a parabolic path with each rebound. The droplet’s kinetic energy is sapped with each rebound by surface deformation and vibration, making each bounce smaller than the last. Viscosity damps the drop’s vibrations, and the droplet eventually comes to rest after twenty or so rebounds. (Image credit: D. Richard and D. Quere)
