It’s not such a dog’s life if your pooch is seven foot tall!
Pet photographer Christopher Cline, from Buffalo, Minnesota has photoshopped some incredible adventures for himself and his three-year-old Goldendoodle Juji.
He inventive owner has reimagine his entire life with his cute dog as if he were a seven foot colossus.
The fun photos Christopher riding Juji across various landscapes like a horse, fishing at sunset, relaxing in a library and even taking a nap under some giant leaves.
The pair have proved a massive hit, gaining a huge online following and being recognised all over their local town.
Christopher said: “My photos are basically how I feel life should be like between a boy and his dog.
“My favourite ones to create are the action and adventure shots where we are doing something fun, whether it be running and jumping a creek or racing wagons down a hill.
“I keep things happy for the most part and at no point will you find negativity in my work. It is strictly to make people smile.
“Most of the people in my town know who Juji is. People love what we do and we get compliments wherever we go.
“People love having their photo taken with him and sometimes they even want me in too.”
It was only when he moved to Minnesota three years ago that Chris began photoshopping pictures with his dog to pass the time.
But after people started to give him really positive feedback about the photos, he eventually decided to turn it into a fulltime career.
Christopher said: “I started creating photos three years ago when I moved to Minnesota.
“It is brutally cold here during the winters and it is necessary to have something do to while you are stuck in the house for seven months.
“I began to toy around with an old camera my girlfriend had given me.
“At first I just did random photoshop and photography pieces, and then one day I created a photo of me riding on Jujis back just for fun and it went over really well.
“I would do one or two a week at first, and then I made the decision to make my Instagram and Facebook ‘all Juji, all the time’.
“So began an entirely new career for me as a pet photographer. I hadn’t planned the adventure but I was willing to give it a go.”
Christopher has now been doing pet photography for three years and says he ‘could not be happier’.
His ideas come from trying to imagine daily life with a seven foot puppy, but he also draws inspiration from the famous comic book series Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Waterson.
In the comic Hobbes was Calvin’s toy tiger who came to life whenever no one else was around.
Christopher said: “I love the complex yet simplistic relationship Calvin had with Hobbes and the adventures they took on a daily basis.”
