Anyone with a dog (or the odd cat) will have done the “Where did the ball go?” trick with their pets before.

But video enthusiast and (dog) magician/mentalist Jose Ahonen has made a short clip where he hides dog treats instead, and leaves a bunch of bewildered pooches stumped about the whereabouts of the doggy treat.

Particular favourites include Tiasto, who storms off when the treat is gone. Salli barks furiously at Jose for losing/hiding the treat, while Torsti runs away in fear.

I will post annoying Twitter updates saying 'Believe' or bemoan some kind of refereeing decision that has 'cost us' the match.

I will provide amateur analysis clouded by 22 years of over-success.

Danielle reviews Jalil Lespert's Yves Saint Laurent.

If there's one thing that fashion and movies have most in common it's their cyclical nature. Just like the fashion industry can't leave something alone till it's died a painful death so too with cinema; one Snow White movie in a year wasn't enough, and the year of Coco Before Chanel, models and actresses were impersonating the style tycoon in boucle jackets and pearls in movies, short films and TV.
