This was a random sighting, and then I kept seeing her in different places I would visit on the internet, and fell in love with her. This post is about Maddie, a sweet-tempered coonhound who accompanied her owner, Theron Humphrey, on a year long cross-country trip while he worked on a photojournalism project.
Theron was burned out from corporate life, and brokenhearted as well, when he met Maddie. What happened next is a beautiful example of the creative entrepreneurship that lies dormant in the heart and soul of our country's inhabitants.
Maddie is a rescued shelter dog, and her owner promotes rescuing such dogs, using these photos which have turned into a best-selling book, Maddie On Things. The project started small and grew organically. All it takes is a few of Theron's photographs to see why I'm now mad about Maddie.
For now, I hope you'll enjoy a sampling of images of this lovable, super-balanced hound, and perhaps buy a copy of the book for your dog. Perhaps you'd enjoy it too.
The next project: Maddie on Sandwiches, complete with photos and recipes from a man, and his best friend.
The purpose behind it all.
Maddie, the Rescue Dog.
You've stolen my heart.
You love without judging.
You live to please your Master.
