What is it with Florida and the houses filled with excrement? Barely two weeks ago I posted about the house in Tarpon Springs, Florida, steeped in the shit of 196 cats.
This time it’s dogs. 55 of ‘em. And a few cats.
Dozens of Dogs Removed From Filthy Duplex
OAKLAND PARK, Fla. – Animal control officers said they have rescued dozens of dogs from a feces-filled home in Oakland Park.
Police said they received a call about 11 a.m. Sunday from neighbors complaining about the animals in the 1700 block of Floranada Road. Officers found 55 dogs and a few cats in the home.
Police said a woman who lived in the duplex moved out and asked someone to look after the animals.
Deputies found the dogs and cats living in “filth and squalor along with a noxious stench of animal excrement,” according to a press release.
Animal control officers removed three truckloads of about a dozen dogs early in the afternoon and then returned for the rest, police said.
The case is under investigation. (source)

Christophe Laudamiel, a scientist who stirs up scent cocktails for New York-based International Flavors and Fragrances has spent the past six months developing a range of odors he hopes will help delegates tackle the financial meltdown.
“Even though Davos has a very corporate image, it is looking to the future and the world of olfaction, of smell and perfumery is part of the future,” Laudamiel told CNN in the lightly-scented entrance lobby of the Forum’s main venue.
Laudamiel, and his collaborator, Berlin-based Christophe Hornetz, have installed eight fragrance dispensers throughout the conference center, squirting tiny whiffs of his specially blended aromas into the thin mountain air being inhaled by Microsoft founder Bill Gates, U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon and many others.
