“I really like to capture the true essence with dogs, which is that they’re always so happy,” the college student told Flickr. “The time Champ and I spend together, he’s just always beaming with happiness and you can really see that through my photos.”

Sedighan claims that the near unbelievable photo of Champ with a butterfly on his nose is not the result of Photoshop but instead of “an extraordinary trained model,” her very own Champ. Though we can’t get enough of those perfectly timed shots, the ones that we love the most are the ones where Champ looks like he’s smiling. Is it just us or is his happiness, and overall love of life, infectious? (Maybe he could cheer up this super sad pug.)
