This is the story of Zoey the rescue dog and Jasper the happiest baby in the world. When their mother, Grace Chon, decided to capture their friendship on film, the 10-month-old Chinese-Korean baby and the 7-year-old rescue dog produced some of the most charming , adorable, and downright silly photos you have ever seen.

When asked about her furry subject, Grace explained that Zoey, "had a difficult start in Taiwan as a rescue dog. She was born in front of a store and the owner washed her and all her siblings into a gutter. A schoolgirl walking by witnessed this and scooped up all the puppies and carried them home, with Zoey's mom following her all the way. She contacted Animal Rescue Team in Taiwan and they prepared the puppies and mom for adoption in the states. I went and picked up Zoey at LAX and the rest is history. She can be very afraid of new things, so I was surprised how much she took to wearing clothing. I know it sounds crazy, but I think it builds her confidence when she wears clothes. She does a happy dance when the props come out and she loves posing for the camera! Typically when I work with dogs I have to use a lot of treats to keep them motivated, but Zoey doesn't need any of that. She'll sit still very patiently and pose until we're done."

Her baby, Jasper, however, is anything but shy. Grace explained, "Jasper is seriously the happiest baby ever. He's been smiling for photos since the day he was born. When he was younger and I would share photos of him, people would always ask if he was actually that happy or if I was just catching split second smiles. He actually is that happy! He's used to smiling when the camera comes out and loves photo time. The entire shoot takes less than 5-10 minutes (I shoot really, really fast!) so once we're done it's off to crawling and exploring again."

Grace says, "I love my dogs fiercely (I'm a crazy dog lady through and through!) and it was really important to me that my dogs have a great relationship with Jasper. Zoey has exceeded my expectations as a big sister and I'm so glad I've found a fun activity that involves both of them!"



What a beautiful friendship! We look forward to seeing more from the adorable duo. Which photo was your favorite?
