Have you guys seen this? Ever since Bubby dog's and my first day together, I've had a weak spot for black rescue dogs. Sadly though, for some reason black dogs have a more difficult time getting adopted in shelters. There's actually a name for it -'Black Dog Syndrome' - where people subconsciously view black-furred animals as scarier (thanks to stereotypes like black cats being bad luck), or simply see them as being common or uninteresting.
Massachusetts photographer Fred Levy recently decided to do something about this unfortunate phenomena, and created the Black Dog Project, a series of photographs of black dogs taken against a black background in his studio. His gorgeous images are really moving, and I hope that as the word spreads about them, more awareness will be brought to the issue, allowing people to see beyond the stereotype to the beauty of these sweet creatures.
