Christian Vieler from Waltrop, Germany recently embarked on a creative photo project, capturing the many expressions of dogs trying to catch treats in mid-air. "Every shoot I am looking for that specific moment when the dog is looking as cute or funny as they can be. That cannot be seen without the power of freezing motion - dog's faces with magnificent lineaments, telling us stories of panic, desire and joy," said Vieler. Continue reading for more.

Muscular Dog

Scientists in China have created the world's first gene-modified dogs, which have twice the amount of muscle mass than that of a non-engineered dog. One advantage this gives them is a "stronger running ability, which is good for hunting, police (military) applications," said Liangxue Lai, a researcher involved with the project at the Guangzhou Institutes of Biomedicine and Health. This same gene mutation does happen naturally in one particular dog breed, whippets, whose lack of myostatin makes their muscles grow even while resting.

Most dogs do not look like their owners, but after seeing these portraits by German photographer Ines Opifanti, you might think otherwise. "I photographed the dogs first, letting them sit on a small podium. Owners had to interact with them, telling them phrases they know the dogs will react to. Of course they got lots and lots of praise and treats so they quickly stopped caring about the lights or the camera. It's important that dogs are calm and relaxed, so they can show their natural behavior and are not frightened. After the dogs were photographed, the owners have to interpret and mimic. I noticed that dog people get really good in interpreting their own dogs. It's really a fascinating thing because we're two completely different species after all," said Opifanti.

Dogs Giant

No, you're not looking at a giant dog running towards the camera, just a clever photography trick known as forced-perspective. This technique employs an optical illusion to make an object appear farther away, closer, larger or smaller than it actually is. It manipulates human visual perception through the use of scaled objects and the correlation between them and the vantage point of the spectator or camera.

Dog Sleeping in Bed

While cat love sleeping in boxes, dogs can snooze just about anywhere, but there are the few who might've been humans in past lives and absolutely prefer human beds over smaller ones. "The idea that dogs should never be allowed on the bed comes from old dominance theories which many of us ignore with no ill effects. Dogs are highly social, but they are also very flexible. They will prefer to be with the members of their social group, whether it is other dogs, cats, children, or adults. Where they prefer to sleep indicates who they consider their BFFs," according to The Wall Street Journal. Continue reading for more.
