When you have a dog, coming home is usually accompanied by joyful cries and lots of jumping. A Japanese photographer who goes by the username inubot captured the beauty of a human and pup reunion in a series of four photos. Set against a verdant backdrop, it features a golden Shiba Inu sprinting up the hill to reunite with its owner.
The heartwarming sequence starts with the slightest view of the dog's fur poking from beneath the concrete road and then skips to just a second or two later when the creature can be seen running at full speed. In the following photo, the canine has finally climbed up the road and is on its way back to its owner. Inubot uses the last image to zoom in on the Shiba Inu's face and showcase its huge happy grin and bright eyes.
Similar to a flipbook animation, browsing through these photos allows the viewers to see how the narrative ensued. It also highlights the relatable excitement a dog has to finally meet up with its owner after spending time apart. It's easy to imagine that the Shiba Inu and inubot shared a moving hug afterward.
