This Photographer Beautifully Captures The Cuteness Of Wet Dogs

Beyond awwww.

New York-based photographer Sophie Gamand was watching dogs taking baths at a groomer when she was inspired to create a photo series featuring cute dogs dripping wet after a good soak. The series spawned a book called Wet Dogs, which features over 120 photos of sodden canines.

"In a way, the bath has the same strong connotation as a baptism," Gamand wrote in an email to A Plus. "We are dogs' creators. In a way, we are their gods. When they are soaked wet and feeling miserable in the tub, are the wet dogs beckoning us the same way humanity reaches out for her own gods, asking the Almighty the reason behind their suffering? The urban dog has become a mirror to our own condition and our solitude."

Here are 13 photos of wet dogs and their amazing reactions:
