    In celebration of National Dog Day today, check out these stunning pooch portraits from Massachusetts photographer Amanda Jones.

    For her book, “Dog Years: Faithful Friends, Then And Now,” Jones juxtaposes portraits she took of younger dogs next to her portraits of their older selves to show the personality and beauty they’ve developed over the years.

    The inspiration for her photo series came from her own dog, Lily, a long-haired dachshund she’s had for 16 years.

    Jones writes in the introduction to her book:

    “In that time my husband and I moved across the country and back. We bought a house, had a baby, and through it all dear Lily was there with us—passing the time, being by our sides, joining us in our adventures of life. A dog’s life is a span that marks so much in our lives.”

    Support our Journalism with a Contribution

    Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.

    Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.

    However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.

    We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community. Even a $1 contribution goes a long way.  Thank you for everyone's support. We love you all and can't appreciate you guys enough.
