Video of Shaking Portland Rescue Dogs Goes Viral

Photographer Carli Davidson took an action all dogs do and put it in the national spotlight. In her book "Shake," she photographs Portland, Ore., rescue dogs shaking off water with a high-speed camera. The result is a funny and sometimes odd look at freeze frames of canines doing what they do best.

"To me it's interesting, they're very funny and at the same time dogs become monsters," Davidson told Seattle NBC affiliate KING. "There's also a gargoyle type effect… there's such a mix of different expressions."

A companion video was released along with the book featuring the same dogs shaking off water in slow motion. A total of 130 dogs are featured in the publication and most come from the Panda Paws Rescue in Vancouver, Wash. If you see any stills you enjoy, you can purchase them on the photographer's website.

Davidson has worked with many animals, including birds of prey and cats. Additionally, she has a series of photographs of disabled pets. One particular group of pictures called "Ramen Noodle" features a small dog missing its front legs with its owner.
