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.

A heartfelt thank you to all the photographers, artists, illustrators, and writers who trusted us, dived in, and brought us delight, grace, excitement, courage, wilderness, and wonder over the last five years. Their work not only reflects the bonds we share with our animal companions, it also celebrates their spirit.
None of this would be possible without our four-legged counterparts who sprinkle magic dust time and time again, and our readers, who embraced this kooky idea, rallied around us, and made this world theirs too. With friends like these, who needs nine lives?

Harrison Ford has taken on a role that was portrayed in the past by Clark Gable, Charlton Heston, and Rutger Hauer before him: the character John Thornton in the latest cinematic adaptation of Jack London’s 1903 novel The Call of the Wild. John Thornton becomes a human companion to Buck, the big St Bernard-Scotch collie mix who’s the heart of the story. The two meet in Yukon, Canada during the 1890s Klondike Gold Rush, and head off on an adventure into the great unknown together. Interestingly, Buck was portrayed using motion capture by Terry Notary, who you might recognise from that dinner scene in 2017’s Palme d’Or winning film The Square.
