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.
"Photographer Theron Humphrey's rescue hound, Maddie, has an amazing ability: She can keep her balance atop almost anything, from a horse to a tree branch. In his book Maddie on Things, Humphrey presents 120 delightful photos of his beautiful dog doing her thing."
As seen on the Ellen DeGeneres Show "Maddie on Things is a hilarious and heartwarming photo journal of a man and his devoted dog. It's an incredible book for any dog lover in your family."

The book seems well-bound and includes a 3 page introduction with a single photo on each page thereafter. Under each photo, the City/State, and Month/Day/Year taken are displayed. I agree with other customers that it would be nice to have some more information on each photo. I know there is (or was) a video of Theron speaking at Google on YouTube and he explains some of these photos, but I would like that written in the book! One thing to note; a lot of photos from the book are not easy to find online, and having the book is worth a lot more than just viewing them online, especially since the book better supports the photographer!
The actual dimensions of the book are 8.25”x7.25”x0.75” The book is 159 pages with about 149 pictures, and one in the 3-page introduction. I hope you find my reviews helpful!
I thank you, Theron, for being selfless in your journey, visiting a local bookstore and giving us the chance to meet you and Maddie was a delight!!
