Stunning Photos of Siberian Huskies Wandering a Majestic Frozen Lake

By

Like most dog owners, Fox Grom enjoys exploring nature with his two Siberian huskies — except he photographs them in the wild, trotting across the icy landscape of his chilly Russian town. The gorgeous pups recently spent their playtime wandering on top of a frozen lake — its mirror-like surface and crystal clear water made for some stunning photos. Since the lake is slightly thawed, Grom’s dogs appear to be walking on water. We can’t think of a more majestic backdrop for two majestic creatures.

Heartwarming ‘Old Faithful’ Photo Series Proves Senior Dogs Have A Lot of Love Left to Give

By

“Senior dogs end up in shelters for a variety of reasons, sometimes because of neglect or abandonment, sometimes because their owners simply cannot care for them. The health of older dogs is at high risk in a shelter environment, and as a result, they may be less adoptable then the younger dogs (or perceived as such by the public),” reports senior dog advocates and all-volunteer group The Grey Muzzle Organization. Photographer Pete Thorne, who we discovered on Co.Design, puts a spotlight on the senior dog community in his series Old Faithful. His portraits capture the character and determination of old dogs — from a bone cancer survivor and several blind pups, to those abandoned in shelters and passed around puppy mills during their lifetime. These dogs have seen it all and their faces tell many stories. Meet some of the pups in Pete’s photos series in our gallery. Visit the artist’s website to stay up to date on how you can purchase his planned book.
