The art in this movie makes me melt.
This was always my favourite scene as a kid, and I still frequently think about it to this day :P
sad mad and totally rad
Few things symbolize spring as sweetly as a brood of fuzzy baby chicks. Let’s celebrate the beginning of spring with a visit to the Department of Unexpected Interspecies Friendship where we’ll meet Los Angeles-based photographer Candice Sedighan’s amazing dog Champ. Champ is an 11-year-old Golden Retriever and the primary subject of Sedighan’s photographs.
After Candice became the temporary caretaker of a box full of chicks, she decided to introduce them to Champ:
"Initially I was unsure about how Champ would react to them," Candice says. "I carefully introduced him to just one chick in my hand to see how he would react while I was petting it. He didn’t mind the chick at all and just curiously and gently sniffed it. I think one of the biggest reasons he didn’t want to hurt the chick was the way I introduced it to him. He is also much more obedient after years of training and getting used to me photographing him. In 2012, I photographed him with live butterflies on his nose and I’m sure that photoshoot helped prepare him as well.
"Senior dogs are also just undeniably sweet and full of wisdom. One of my biggest goals, through my photos, is to show others that senior dogs can be cute, too! It seems that puppy photos and videos are quite popular these days, and, of course, puppies are adopted much more quickly in shelters and rescues. I hope these photos help people have a change of heart and give seniors a chance!"
