Space Dogs Exhibition in Lancaster

Space Dogs Exhibition - Lancaster 2004

There’s a bizarre exhibition at the Storey Institute Lancaster at present — giant inflatable dogs created by the Space Cadets. As you sit there these giant white amorphous blobs are suddenly pumped full of air to become giant dogs.

You can hire the balloons for events and buy giant dog-shaped bean bags for £300 a pop.

Strangely, Teen Titans this morning was the green dog episode and an Alasatian has been barking continuously outside our window for part of the day, tied up outside the job centre. No connection. However, tomorrow I’ll do something with dinosaurs in the hope of a T-Rex rising out of the sea near Morecambe and eating the local MP. You can hope.
