On her Tumblr, "Maddie on Things," she stands and sits on objects and looks great doing it.

We'd like you to meet Maddie, a very talented Coonhound. Maddie has achieved what most cats are capable of doing without effort and what most dogs try to do with very little success -- defy gravity.

Maddie perches like a cat.

Maddie the Coonhound accompanied her human, photographer Theron Humphrey, on an ambitious cross-country project called This Wild Idea. In a year Theron traversed the United States, meeting one new person for each day of the year, photographing and recording the story of every subject he met. The project culminated in 91,540 photos taken, 66,565 miles driven, 50 states visited, and 365 strangers who became friends.

Now Maddie is traveling with Theron on another project -- and showing off her mad balancing skills along the way. Apart from being incredibly photogenic, Maddie is patient, and possesses the ability to squeeze into almost any space and balance on any item from any height. Theron captures Maddie's adventures and documents them on his Tumblr Maddie on Things, where you can see Maddie do the seemingly impossible and look good while doing it.

Scared ya, didn't she?

Don't worry -- Maddie performs all her stunts under the careful supervision of Theron and his friends, who would probably rather die than see any harm befall Maddie.
