Beautiful Dogs

Gallery: Maddie on Things

I feel a little like Sandra Sully here with the late news, but it was about time we shared some of our favourite shots from the acrobatic OG dog influencer, Maddie.

Maddie on Things celebrates the strange talent of one special dog and will resonate with any dog lover who appreciates the quirky hearts (and extraordinary balance) of canines.

Over 7 years ago now, American photographer Theron Humphrey brought home a beautiful Coonhound (after falling for her dear-like appearance), soon finding out that she had a penchant for balancing on the most unlikely of objects.

Soon after, her photos standing on the strangest of places as they toured all 50 states went viral, eventually leading to Humphrey publishing two books. 

Today, Maddie’s calm, acrobatic composure lives on via Theron’s Instagram account although she’s traded a life on the road for family life now. Still, she’s just as cheeky and photogenic.

Buy the original book at Booktopia or the 2017 follow up ‘Maddie Lounging on Things‘.
