I am a dog lover. Few things make me happier than spending time with dogs, although in a pinch I will settle for looking at pictures of dogs. That's why I love this new book, Maddie on Things: A Super Serious Project About Dogs and Physics  by Theron Humphrey. The book is an offshoot of the author's blog , in which he documented Maddie's year-long trip around the country, meeting people and balancing on everything from basketball hoops to shopping carts and soup cans.
Theron (who adopted Maddie from a Georgia rescue group) is traveling the country again with a new project - documenting rescue dogs and their families. He's still taking pictures of Maddie, though. You can even meet this photogenic coonhound when Theron's book tour  swings through Colorado later this summer.
