Man Photoshops His Dog Into A Giant, Internet Falls In Love

Man Photoshops His Dog Into A Giant, Internet Falls In Love

The Internet has fallen in love with the photo adventures of Chris Cline and his giant dog Juji

They say that a dog is “man’s best friend,” but any dog owner will tell you that their dog is so much more than a best friend. Dogs are our confidantes and partners in crime, our biggest fans, and members of the family. There is an almost indescribable connection between people and their dogs, and photographer Chris Cline captures some of that magic in his unbelievable photos with his (giant) dog, Juji.

Cline said he started taking photos of the giant Juji as a hobby after he and his girlfriend moved to Buffalo, Minnesota a couple years ago. Thanks to the power of technology (hello, Photoshop!), he transforms his already large 100-pound, three-year-old Goldendoodle into an amazing giant-sized dog.

“The temperatures here during winter can plummet to -40°F, so having an indoor hobby is a must,” Cline said in a post on Love What Matters Facebook page. “I began to play with photoshop a lot just to take up some time. At first it was just random things and then one day I created a photo of me riding on Jujis back and I posted it on my Facebook and Instagram pages and people just loved it.”

Of course, people loved. How could anyone not love these photos? Instead of Clifford the Big Red Dog, we get Juji the Big Tan Goldendoodle.

The dimensions and scenes depicted in some of his photos might not be real, but the feelings that they portray are very, very real. Just ask any dog owner.

“A lot of my inspiration comes from just every day life with Juji,” Cline said. “Obviously it is dramatized 10 fold, but it’ still our adventures.”

And, oh, the adventures they have! Cline and his dog do it all, together. They go to the carnival.

"Wooooo-hoooooo!!!"….. Because no matter how old you are, the giant slide at the Carnival can make anyone feel like a kid again."…….. I took this photo last week about an hour before my 'Man vs Cow' debacle but I never got to use it. I actually took a lot of photos at the Carnival so I'll be posting 2 or 3 really fun edits for the next few days. I'm feeling a lot better, and I wanna thank each and every one of you for being patient while I took some time to recover from my accident. I'm healthy enough to start working again so I'll be posting new pics every day again. Thanks so much for the support and for all get well wishes. Juji and I really appreciate it. It's good to be back. #barkbox #Bestdog #worldofcutepets #chrisandjuji  #dogsofinstagram  #weeklyfluff #ig_underground #ellen #dogsofinstaworld #dogsandpals  #ellendegeneres  #excellent_dogs  #puppiesofinstagram #bestwoof #enter_imagination #theellenshow  #arts_help #petscorner #picoftheday #petsofinstagram #ps_bestrange #minnesotaphotographers #topdogphotos #ilovemydog #dogsofinstgram #manipcomp #doggosdoingthings

They surf and fish.

"See, Juji…. You got this. Nothing to worry about."…… A little follow up to yesterday's photo. After an entire afternoon of trying to lure him into the water with treats, I finally resorted to promising him that chicks would dig him if he did this. As you can see… It worked. #barkbox #Bestdog #worldofcutepets #chrisandjuji  #dogsofinstagram  #weeklyfluff #ig_underground #ellen #dogsofinstaworld #dogsandpals  #ellendegeneres  #excellent_dogs  #puppiesofinstagram #bestwoof #enter_imagination #theellenshow  #arts_help #petscorner #picoftheday #petsofinstagram #ps_bestrange #hikingwithdogs #campingwithdogs  #minnesotaphotographers #topdogphotos #ilovemydog #dogsofinstgram #manipcomp #doggosdoingthings

Oh, Dad…. It's so good to be back. Life just isn't the same without taking pictures."……. Our tribute to Memorial Day Weekend. As many of you know, or have figured out, Juji and I have taken time off from social media in the last couple of weeks to take care of some things. Yard work, house work, personal growth, and just kinda being free from feeling pressured to create. It's been refreshing, to say the least. But today we start a brand new journey into sharing our adventures with you. A journey that will involve a more personal experience into what we do. Our work from now on will include more 'real world' situations and more edits that include better photography. It's really good to be back with a fresh outlook on things. I feel so rejuvenated and ready to create again. So here's edit number one of our "Summer of fun" edition. #barkbox #Bestdog #worldofcutepets #chrisandjuji  #dogsofinstagram  #weeklyfluff #ig_underground #ellen #dogsofinstaworld #dogsandpals  #ellendegeneres  #excellent_dogs  #puppiesofinstagram #bestwoof #trees_ru #theellenshow  #arts_help #petscorner #picoftheday #petsofinstagram #ps_bestrange #hikingwithdogs #campingwithdogs  #minnesotaphotographers #topdogphotos #ilovemydog #dogsofinstgram #manipcomp

They build (and then destroy) snowmen.

They seriously do it all.

These photos aren’t just irresistible because they are fantastical and wildly entertaining, but also because they are all of us. Cline and Juji clean out the car, do yard work, and stare into the fridge searching for something delicious. And who hasn’t stared into the fridge hoping that it would magically produce something to eat along with the answers to all of life’s questions?

"Find something else to mow, Dad… I'm not finished riding in the wagon yet!"….. My big helper isn't much help…but Juji's good for motivation. It also costs me twice as much in gas just to pull him around the yard. But it's worth it. Also, I'm not sure if anyone on here is from Wisconsin, but my shirt says "Drink Wisconsinly". The best Goodwill buy ever. #barkbox #Bestdog #worldofcutepets #chrisandjuji  #dogsofinstagram  #weeklyfluff #ig_underground #ellen #dogsofinstaworld #dogsandpals  #ellendegeneres  #excellent_dogs  #puppiesofinstagram #bestwoof #trees_ru #theellenshow  #arts_help #petscorner #picoftheday #petsofinstagram #ps_bestrange #hikingwithdogs #campingwithdogs  #minnesotaphotographers #topdogphotos #ilovemydog #dogsofinstgram #manipcomp

Cline and Juji are clearly living their best life.  They read books, go for walks on the beach, and lay on their backs while they watch the clouds. They even frolic in the meadow and catch butterflies — and what is love without butterflies and a little frolicking.

"No sudden moves, Dad… You'll spook him and then I'll be mad at you. Easy…. Eassssyyyyy!" Every now and then I get my super talented girlfriend @dreaming_big_mn to help me with my work since she's the person that taught me everything I know about lighting and photography. She just has an eye for light and how it's supposed to work in photos. I know a lot of you are new to my feed so I just wanted to introduce her to you also. We're completely different photographers, but we both have the same goal….to create images that are pleasing to the eye. Go check out her page (@dreaming_big_mn) and give her a follow. I promise you won't be disappointed. #barkbox #Bestdog #worldofcutepets #chrisandjuji  #dogsofinstagram  #weeklyfluff #ig_underground #ellen #dogsofinstaworld #dogsandpals  #ellendegeneres  #excellent_dogs  #puppiesofinstagram #bestwoof #trees_ru #theellenshow  #arts_help #petscorner #picoftheday #petsofinstagram #ps_bestrange #hikingwithdogs #campingwithdogs  #minnesotaphotographers #topdogphotos #ilovemydog #dogsofinstgram #manipcomp

“Before all of this, he and I were just a boy and his dog, but now it’s different,” Cline said. “He’s not just my dog… he’s my business partner, my buddy and my best friend.”

"Well Juji… I guess being a 7 foot tall dog means you can't be friends with swans. Lesson number 28 in the Goldendoodle handbook"…. This morning we headed out in front of the house to capture some sunrise pictures and caught this beautiful photo of the swans getting spooked. It was quite a sight watching them run on top of the water to get airborne. #barkbox #Bestdog #worldofcutepets #chrisandjuji #goldendoodles #dogsofinstagram  #goldendoodlesofinstagram  #weeklyfluff #rsa_graphics  #ig_underground #ellen #dogsofinstaworld #dogsandpals #ellendegeneres  #excellent_dogs  #puppiesofinstagram #bestwoof #dailydoseopuppies #theellenshow  #arts_help #petscorner #picoftheday #petsofinstagram #ps_bestrange #hikingwithdogs #campingwithdogs #artcollective #minnesotaphotographers #jj_forum_1792

“I truly can’t imagine a world that doesn’t include him in it.​”

And on behalf of all dog owners everywhere, let us just say, we get it.
