Cute

Is this the world's most obliging dog?

Published

It's a simple premise and a brilliant one. A new book celebrates the dexterity and obliging nature of a sweet-tempered coonhound. Maddie on Things shows Maddie the dog accompanying her owner on a year-long trip across the US doing what she does best: standing on things. The resulting Instagram photos are a heart-warming tribute to the companionship of man's best friends, in all their quirkiness. Not to mention the grace and patience of Maddie herself. Grab yourself some Friday cute with a look at some preview photos, below...
