Making dogs look ridiculous is Greg Murray’s specialty. The Ohio-based photographer gets a kick out of feeding peanut butter to pooches and then snapping pictures of them licking their chops in glee. I haven’t met a dog yet who doesn’t love peanut butter. Over time, I’ve photographed 130 dogs.
It’s not easy for them to get it down quickly, so they often do wild things with their tongues that i didn’t know were possible, he explains. The results are hilarious and adorable, and are now conveniently compiled in a book called, what else, Peanut Butter Dogs. Even sweeter than this spread is that Murray is a dedicated rescue animal advocate so most of the portraits featured are of rescue dogs.
