Kelly Lund is taking a somewhat unconventional approach to dog ownership.
Most dog owners take their furry friends on short walks, trips to the park and maybe a few more places here and there. For Lund, there are few things more important than making sure his dog Loki gets to enjoy as much of the great outdoors as possible.
Lund decided to create an Instagram account devoted to his photogenic "wolfdog", a husky/Arctic wolf/Malamute mix. Now, Loki has over 289,000 followers and admirers around the world.
Lund takes many of his photos in his scenic home state of Colorado. However, he regularly takes Loki to new destinations to explore and play. He hopes that by sharing these snapshots, he'll motivate others to go on more explorations and adventures with their dogs.
"I believe dogs aren't meant to live out their lives in a backyard or inside a house. I hate to see that," he wrote on BoredPanda. "I hope we are inspiring people to get out, explore our world, and make memories with their pups."
SHARE with your friends and family and get out there with your pups!
