My little hipster brothers in NYC
Hashtag Highlight: @ifitwags’s #peanutbutterseries
The origins of the #peanutbutterseries, started by Stephanie McCombie (@ifitwags) and her two German Shorthair Pointers, are just as straightforward as you might imagine. “I was watching the boys eating peanut butter one day and burst out laughing at the faces they were making,” says Stephanie of her pups Travis and Gus, “so I grabbed my camera and started shooting. The photos ended up being so funny I wanted to see other dogs in action!”
Since the first #peanutbutterseries photo was posted last month, Travis and Gus—both rescues whom Stephanie calls #thepointerbrothers—have inspired hundreds of other pups and their humans to break out jars of peanut butter and start snapping.
Want to join in on the fun? Stephanie offers these tips: “Don’t be afraid of a little mess and have lots of peanut butter on hand. Shooting in a space with lots of light works best… must avoid blurry tongues!”
Used to love giving my dog a spoonfull of peanut butter. Reaction was priceless!
