A year and a half ago, 23-year-old Seattle, Washington-based photographer Jeremy Veach adopted an eight-week-old pug named Norm. Since then, Veach has faithfully documented his pup’s life by publishing daily photographs to Instagram.

The images have been a hit: his account @jermzlee has already attracted nearly 40,000 followers, and the cute “pug shots” are being featured on sites all across the Web.

Veach says he was first inspired by photographer Theron Humphrey’s photographs of his coonhound Maddie balancing on things. A number of his photos of Norm are similar.

Others have their own unique touch. For example, one recurring shot shows Norm apparently holding the camera and snapping a selfie:

Veach tells mobile photography magazine Ludique that he always makes sure Norm is onboard with the project. “He loves pictures and gets really into it,” Veach says. “And when there is something he doesn’t like, I can tell, and I just will move on to a new idea.”

    Someone give this dog a bone – Norm seriously deserves the “most patient dog of the year” award for all he’s been put through (however adorable and well done)

    Norm loves to be photographed. Norm’s owner loves taking pictures.
    It’s wonderful to see such a relationship. I’m happy for both of them.
