Dramatic Photos of Dogs Shaking

This delightful series of dog portraits freezes some cute little canines mid-shake. Beautiful! Check ’em out with their mouths dangling, noses sloping, long fur looking like cyclone, and faces twisted into wrinkly fists! Aw. Oregon Zoo freelancer and professional photographer Carli Davidson has captured all the little details of this common pet gesture, unseen to the human eye, like the shimmering rays of drool and water and the accidentally comical stares emerging from the rippling folds of their swooshing eyelids. Depending on the breed and facial floppiness, these portraits range from adorable to almost surreal, with the mouthiest of the creatures looking like something Ralph Steadman would draw. Shake it!
