There is a time to contemplate the deeply entangled psychological conundrums of the subject matter that you gaze upon, but needless to say this is not one of those times.
Plain and simple, this is a dog standing on things... to the extreme!
Atlanta-based photographer Theron Humphrey is embarking on a life-affirming journey to visit all 50 states in the next year, but not without taking his well-postured pooch with him. His dog Maddie is a delightful little canine with one mildly remarkable skill; she can stand on pretty much anything.
Maddie can stand on sign posts, a discarded TV, even the death-defying double shopping cart! We can hear Bob Saget's high-pitched "America's Funniest Home Videos" voice ringing in our heads already. You can follow Maddie's posing adventures on her Tumblr, Maddie The Coonhound, where prints of her past exploits are available for purchase.
Check out a slideshow of Maddie standing on stuff below while we come up with some more puns.
