For the past decade, photographer Theron Humphrey has been adventuring with this best friend, Maddie the coonhound. The beautiful pup became famous years ago thanks to her affinity for standing on everything—from giant watermelons to playground equipment. Nowadays, there is less standing, but she and Humphrey are still traveling. They take plenty of time to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors and moments with their human pals. Through Humphrey’s photographs, it’s clear that a home is wherever the two are together.

Although there is a book based on Maddie balancing on different objects, Humphrey more often captures her being a “lazy” coonhound. He showcases Maddie living her best life; she’ll snooze in a camping chair, sprawl on in a field of wildflowers, and find her moment of zen wrapped up in bedsheets. In each photo, she’s perfectly content enjoying these simple moments in the solitude of rural America.

Scroll down for more adorable photos of Maddie. If you enjoy seeing her snuggly side, be sure to pick up Humphrey’s book Maddie Lounging On Thingsnow available on Amazon.
