French photographer Sophie Gamand decided to create a natural and very cute photo series of dogs getting wet during their grooming procedures. What makes the fittingly-titled Wet Dog photo series so funny is how realistically these little fellows react to water and shampoo. Some fur balls remain stoic and pretend that everything’s OK, but others don’t even try to hide their emotions, and you can see the misery, surprise and even anger in their eyes. Don’t worry, though – not a single doggy was harmed during this photoshoot.

Thanks to the help of a vigilant pet care clinic and a loving family, this mistreated pup, dubbed “Shrek” because of his monstrous appearance when he was found, has been rescued and has found a new home. When Shrek was found by Dr. Brenda Gough’s husband on their equestrian facility in Ontario, he could barely move. His thick, over-grown fur was caked with mud, his legs were covered in sores and a burr had lodged itself in his eye.
Just yesterday, award-winning U.S. photographer and animal trainer Carli Davidson published her book “Shake.” The much-awaited photo collection features close-up portraits of dogs in all of their drooling glory. The series is hilarious because it gives us an unexpected (and funny-looking) glance at the subjects’ personalities. Lips smack, ears flop, and drool flies.
Now here’s an ultimate explosion of cuteness: a creative advertising campaign, that features both adorable puppies and kittens! Titled Life is Adventure, the photos series portray little fellows embarking on various adventures, set up from props on the ground. Created by graphic designer and art director Marek Farkas and photographer Miro Minarovich, the series was created as part of Hill’s pet food advertising campaign.
Washington-based photographer Jeremy Veach is one of those dog owners who know what it feels like to live in someone else’s shadow: the pictures he makes of his pug Norm have more than 53,000 followers on Instagram, and the model is already said to be the most personality-filled pug out there. Usually Norm poses for portraits that are enhanced by one or two props, but fans seem to be especially keen on his selfies, where Norm’s paw is extended out of the frame to simulate him holding a camera.
Candice Sedighan and her golden retriever Champ is what you can call a real dream team! 20-year-old photographer needs no other model when her dog has enough patience to sit still and pose even with a live butterfly on his nose. Candice got Champ from her dad back when she was 9, but it wasn’t until the age of 13, when she got her first digital camera, that the retriever had a chance to unveil just how photogenic it really was.
Sometimes fingers, dipped in paint almost by accident, can completely change the course of an artist’s career. This is what happened to Seattle-based artist Iris Scott, who is now famous for her incredible finger-painting art. Iris paints with a pair of surgical gloves on, and her finger moves resembles those of a pianist as she touches multiple points on the canvas at the same time.
Every model would tell you that working a camera is no easy task – but this poser makes it look effortless. Meet Menswear Dog, a super cute 3-year-old Shiba Inu dog from New York. Fashion designer Dave Fung and graphic designer Yena Kim chose him as a model for their Tumblr fashion blog Menswear Dog, where Bodhi wears and showcases a variety of stylish outfits. From street style to hipster to smart casual – the photogenic dog seems to always find an appropriate expression and angle to make the photos look great.
If playing fetch with your dog has become a weary chore for both parties, the Rogz Grinz ball will make it fun again! Designer Porky Heffer from a South Africa-based company Rogz created a fetch ball that has a crazy wide smile drawn on it, which makes your dog look as if he’s grinning every time he fetches the ball. It can also be stuffed with your pet’s favorite treats, to make sure that no dog could ignore the ball.
If you’re torn between wearing fur and loving animals, the dispute has already been settled. The pictures by French photographer Erwan Fichou prove that you only have to love your pet long enough… to be able to wear it later! The dog owners in the photos would pet their buddies so much that they could collect enough of their fur to spun it into yarn and knit a sweater from it.
The Japanese came up with an idea on how to change the traditional brutal-looking dog muzzles into something more pleasant. Their product, called Quack, is a funny muzzle that’s shaped as a duck’s bill. Put it on your dog’s head and you’ll have a four-legged friendly duck. Hopefully your dog won’t get too offended by this accessory.
Just when it seems that nothing new can be done in the field of pet photography, here comes Seth Casteel and starts capturing dogs underwater. What is amazing that dogs love fetching things so much that they even forget they are not aquatic animals. Silly dogs!
