Anonymous asked: I really like winnie the pooh, Can you draw winnie the pooh pleaseeeeee
Listen, don’t ever let anybody tell you that your preoccupation with TV shows is a useless waste of time, okay? Like, once when I was in college, a group of my friends were working on assembling an entire horse skeleton as a sort of thesis project (equine science represeeeeeent), and they were talking about soaking the bones in bleach and trying to boil them clean and shit like that and I was like, “Nah man, what you need is a flensing chamber. It’s just a room full of motherfucking beetles. They will be happy to clean those bones for you.”
And not to toot my own fucking horn or anything, but without that sweet tip they would’ve spent really a lot of hours on horrific-smelling bone-cleaning attempts and probably wouldn’t have ended up with a glorious museum-quality skeleton that I’m pretty sure they not only got an A with but probably also sold for a lot of money.
And none of that would have come together so beautifully if I hadn’t seen Bruce Campbell get thrown into a museum flensing chamber and very inaccurately devoured alive by carrion-eating beetles in that one episode of American Gothic that one time. So don’t anybody ever tell me that my slow accumulation of useless TV trivia hasn’t made the world a better place, and don’t anybody ever try to claim that Bruce Campbell hasn’t made glorious contributions to the pursuit of scientific excellence.

quimmiq is the inuktituk word for the canadian eskimo dog (canis familiaris borealis), which after four thousand years in canada’s arctic faces imminent extinction, in large part due to a policy of eradication by the royal canadian mounted police meant to force the inuit into government settlement. brian ladoon, whose dogs we see here near churchill, manitoba, has been breeding quimmiq for over forty years and is largely responsible for maintaining the species.
so it was with much trepidation that brian noticed a group of polar bears, who eat quimmiq, approaching his dogs one day in 1992. though most of his dogs became quite defensive, one of them playfully ventured up to a polar bear and the two got on like old firends. every year since, the polar bears will stop by ladoon’s place to play with the dogs on their way to the newly iced over hudson bay.
these photos were taken by famed arctic photographer norbert rosing, who just happened to be with brian on that day in 1992. the canadian eskimo dog is still on the verge of extinction, with estimates of three hundred or less left. "the last dogs of winter" is a 2011 documentary on brian ladoon’s efforts
