Chances are you've seen Maddie on something. Be it balancing on a bicycle in Michigan or a basketball hoop in Iowa. Stretched out between two staircase railings in Pennsylvania or posing inside a giant watermelon in Mississippi. Driving a tractor in North Dakota or curled up inside a barbecue at a park in Wyoming.
These may not seem like events worth documenting, but Maddie is a dog -- a 3 1/2-year-old, 45-pound coonhound hailing from just outside Atlanta. The balancing act is in her nature, her human, Theron Humphrey says. And capturing such an event -- be it Maddie on a ladder or the roof of a car -- requires little more than a command and the promise of a treat. Humphrey began taking pictures of these often hilarious, sometimes human-looking scenes using his iPhone and posted them on Instagram.
