When she was shooting for the “Heartthrobs and Hound Dogs” calendar, Texas-based photographer Ricki Beason realized that she wants to move away from what’s, frankly, a boring approach and switch from portraying shirtless buff men to a more humorous setting, where the bigger emphasis would be on the rescue dogs, and not on the pecs of naked guys. That’s how “Dad Bods and Dogs” calendar came to be- with each month’s cover guys and their pups more fabulous than the last!

The Dad Bods and Dogs calendar features hot guys and cute pups- and it's for charity, too!

In a sea of generic “sexy men” calendars, Beason’s work is a breath of fresh air. Yes, her calendar still features seriously attractive guys, but instead of just posing for a snap with a pooch, they’re portraying fun, everyday situations that your regular dog dad would be in. I mean, guys, if you don’t have a spa day with your pooch at least once a month, you’re missing out!

The calendar features humoristic "dad dog" situations that will brighten your day.

The humorous and fun photos are bound to put a smile on your face every time you pass by the calendar. Seriously, it was so hard to choose which one to feature here. But, while a gaggle of handsome dads and insanely adorable doggies is more than enough to motivate you to get this calendar, none of these are actually not the best part of “Dad Bods and Dogs”.

Who said that attractive guys have to be all pecs, no fun? This calendar proves different.

All of the dogs that are in Beason’s pictures come from 3 different Dallas-based rescues. She purposely chose some of the smaller and less known rural rescues, to help raise awareness and funds that would help them continue their amazing work. The proceeds from this calendar will go directly to rescue beneficiaries and save lives of Texas pooches- hopefully, seeing cute shelter dogs on the calendar’s photos will also inspire more people to adopt a pet of their own.

If you want to ogle cute dudes for a charitable reason, make sure to check out (and preorder while they’re up for grabs!) Ricki Beason’s “Dad Bods and Dogs” calendar. Just make sure to pick a good spot in your home to hang it- you’ll want to make sure you see these hunks with their hounds every day!
