Book: Maddie on Things


Maddie on Things is a photobook with gorgeous images of Maddie balancing on all kinds of objects. These images were born from a year-long roadtrip project, This Wild Idea around the United States.

Maddie travels with best buddy Theron Humphrey who takes pictures of Maddie balancing with grace and poise on almost everything from giant watermelons, road signs, animals, bicycles to refrigerators.

Some are hilarious, some left us in awe and some are just adorable. So well-composed, all of them are just worth flipping over and over again.

Theron adopted Maddie from the animal shelter and instantly knew they were best pals. In 2011, they set off on the roadtrip project, an adventure of surprises and discovery. He discovered Maddie's talent of patient and balancing on things, how Maddie has changed his life for the better and the lessons dogs like Maddie has to teach.

Maddie is a Coonhound, a scent hound, originally bred as working dogs who hunt and search entirely by scent. They are generally even tempered, outgoing, friendly and sensitive.

Captures the imagination of a adventurous roadtrip in the good company of dogs, this photobook is a great gift for any dog-crazy self and friend.

Read also about another project, Why We Rescue as the pair embarks on another roadtrip through all 50 states in the United States. They visit families and people who adopted animals, telling their stories of these animals and how they have changed lives of the adopters for the better. This project shares everyday stories on how animals open the hearts and homes of people.
