This beautiful collection of photographs shows the concentrated faces of dogs just before catching their beloved treats.
Professional photographer Christian Vieler, from Germany, shot the latest series of his ‘Dogs Catching Treats In Trouble’ collection with hilarious results.
Some of the 48-year-old’s images show the happy faces of successful catches, whereas others illustrate pooches’ shocked reactions when seeing such large amounts of treats thrown at them at once.
One of the most adorable photos is of Rhodesian Ridgeback, Hudson, looking down in the dumps – presumably after an unsuccessful attempt at grabbing one of the snacks on offer.
Christian said: “After working as a journalist for many years, I decided to start taking my photography seriously, becoming a professional in 2016.
“My favourite capture is of Australian Shepherd Kaylee because it defines my idea in all its glory.
“Shocked, confused, joyful or sad: these photographs of dogs catching treats show a big variety of well-known emotions”
The collection acts as a personal look into some of the emotions our four-legged companions can feel when the moment strikes.
Christian added: “I am grateful to have the chance to work as a pro dog photographer.
“After shooting snapshots for five years now, I still enjoy every shoot and dog.”
