On the trail of Johnny Depp, take 2

In an earlier post titled "On the trial of Johnny Depp," we showed a video of Maggie, our celebrity-sniffing service dog, running her nose over a traghetto pier in response to Cheryl's command to "Find Johnny!" 

During this morning's snowstorm in Venice, Maggie once again showed off her detective skills along the Calle Bernardo, a quiet side street that leads past the Palazzo Nani (now part of Ca' Foscari University) to the Grand Canal:

Maggie in snow
1. Maggie notices snowy footprints in an unmarked campiello off the Calle Bernardo. Her nose twitches. Has she detected Johnny Depp's DNA in the snow?

2. When Cheryl barks the command "Find Johnny," Maggie barks back and leads Cheryl to the end of the Calle Bernardo, where the Palazzina Grassi is visible across the Grand Canal. (Palazzina Grassi is an upscale boutiique hotel just a few doors away from Ca' Brangelina, a.k.a. the Palazzo Mocenigo, where Angelina and Brad Pitt are staying for the filming of The Tourist.)

3. Cheryl notices that the Palazzina Grassi has a new set of green privacy curtains hiding its water entrance The curtains are similar to the blue privacy screen that was installed at Ca' Brangelina before the Jolie-Pitt clan moved in.

Later, Cheryl checks her online sources and discovers that Johnny Depp has been spotted at the Palazzina Grassi. Good work, Maggie! Now all we have to do is figure out how to make plaster casts of those footprints in the Calle Bernardo for our CSI: Venice evidence file.
