“When the humans are away the animals will play.” It’s what John Lund introduced the world to with his now infamous collection of digitally manipulated and enhanced photos, known as Animal Antics. Now with his second book, Animal Wisdom, Lund tells his audience to catch a catnap or get a mouseage, and enjoy the carefree life that our animal friends enjoy. Face it, if we were more like our pets, we’d be more pleasant to be around, even with ourselves.
Lund’s clever advice, which accompanies each hilarious picture, will definitely take the edge off any rough day. So spread the word, and laugh out loud as these crazy little buggers share cup cakes and give you flowers. For all you furry fitness gurus out there, and cats and dogs looking for excitement, try some of these moves other house pets are doing, which John Lund caught with his camera, while they were home alone. — Jaclyn Morales
