Maddie is a sweet-tempered coonhound who accompanied her owner, Theron, on a yearlong, cross-country trip while he worked on a photojournalism project. In his spare time, Theron took photos of Maddie doing what she does best: standing on things. From bicycles to giant watermelons to horses to people, there really isn't anything that Maddie won't stand on with grace and patience. The poignant Instagram photos of this beautiful dog and her offbeat poses have captured the imagination of all those who long for a road trip with a good dog for company. Maddie on Things celebrates the strange talent of one special dog and will resonate with any dog lover who appreciates the quirky hearts (and extraordinary balance) of canines.

Maddie is so fun. I can't tell if she actually enjoys standing on things, or if she's just extremely tolerant of the man she loves. Hmmmmm...I wonder if my Max would stand on the houseboat flagpole?

This is like an updated, photographic version of Steinbeck's Travels with Charlie with slightly more focus on the canine companion, Maddie. Simple, playful, and artistic, it's fun to flip through the pictures and admire the Maddies's acrobatic talents with myriad bits of America in the background. I especially liked spotting local cities like Shawnee and Lee's Summit in the mix.
