Maddie The Coonhound

Photographer Theron Humphrey was at a crossroads in his life so he embarked on a documentary project called This Wild Idea, which involved traveling to 50 states and photographing one person a day for a year. To keep himself company on the road, he decided he needed a co-pilot. Enter Maddie, a rescue from a shelter in Atlanta, as well as a series of photographs of her amazing balance and patience! I mean, does it get any cuter? Maddie and Theron are on a book tour this summer so check here to see when Maddie will be in your state!

  5. Maddie is the best!
    Some of these photos are just plain cute and others are amazing. I mean how does she balance on a basketball rim? How does she have that kind of balance.
    A little nuts!
    Love all the images.

    I’ve been following him on Facebook/instagram etc for several months now, love that you posted about it!!!! Someone I know through friends at home is also out with him, so I’ve really been hearing a lot about it. It’s incredible, and that dog is so special-plus, I appreciate his push for rescues as my own dog is a rescue and my family currently has three other rescues (there have been many more before and will be many more after!).

    – This is getting a bit more suctvbjiee, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of neighbors will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune Social is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.October 18, 2012 7:56 am
