Art Project Raises Awareness For Shelter Dogs With Abstract Paintings Created By Dogs Shaking Paint Off Their Body

Catching dogs on camera during a particularly vigorous shake has become something of an art form. Canismo, a project from a group of Brazil-based artists, is turning water-logged pups into artists using a few buckets of non-toxic paint with the goal of supporting the adoption of shelter animals. The campaign gives dogs the freedom to express themselves and allow their inner artist to be seen, in a bright -literally bright, and adorable way. After having a harmless paint made with cornstarch and food coloring, pour all over their bodies, the dogs reacted by shaking it off onto canvases that were hanged around them. As stated in the description of the project, "the shake of the paint reveals a remarkable exercise of freedom, where each drop of ink bears the stain of prejudice." 18 unique artworks were created out of the project, which benefits the Procure1Amigo shelter.

Photographer Beautifully Captures The Purity of Doggo Maternity Shoots

Is there anything more darling than a maternity shoot? Sure there is! If your model just happens to be a loyal, pure of heart, good girl two-year-old Dachshund named Sugar! 

Sugar is expecting her first litter and who better to capture the moment than Washington-based photographer Laura Shockley? Laura Shockley specializes in maternity, as well as, newborn shoots. She made headlines last year due to her gasp-worthy shot of a newborn ecstatically outstretching his arms, as if thrilled to have finally arrived into this world.

Now, Shockley is sharing her newest photo-shoot via Facebook featuring a pregnant pup! "This little momma is going to grace us with some short legged puppers soon! I can not wait for the next milestone session for her, the grandmother (me) 'purchased' her the maternity/newborn package!," Laura wrote. 

Shockley told PopSugar that Sugar is, "getting close to the end of her pregnancy and we took her for a day filled with pup cups and peanut butter treats, [and] it ended with her maternity session. If people can feel special on their photo shoot days, so can Sugar!"

We are definitely on-board with that! 

Complete with images of Sugar rocking a flower crown and tulle, and surrounded by a field of flowers, here is Sugar's gorgeous and one-of-a-kind photo-shoot:

Photographer Places Giant Cats In Photos With Himself And It's Something Out Of A Ghibli Movie

You can say that the artist, Petechka Odnobokov (Peter, for short), is larger than life! Peter places these images of giant cats (who you may have seen circulating the interwebs) in urban, and not so urban landscapes. A man with glasses and a beard is also present in each and every photo, this is Peter himself! 

Peter is always looking at ease and relaxed in the pics as the giant felines roam about (or nap about). Peter writes under one of the photos, a photo with cats is a peculiar way of communicating with the world around him. This allows you to draw a bridge between his total isolation from childhood and the outside world with other people.

The world he has created is certainly better than our reality!
