Shirtless men and adorable pups!!! Two of my favorite things. And apparently, plenty of people’s as well.For the second year running, Mike Ruiz lends his considerable talents for a great cause.
The 50-year-old photographer once again releases an eye-catching calendar to support the non-profit Louie’s Legacy Animal Rescue.
“We paired hulking men with sweet rescues to convey the idea that these animals need protection from the cruelty and indifference that exists in the world of discarded and abused dogs,” Ruiz tells Huffington Post. “If that isn’t apparent to some, then we hope that they will appreciate the delicious eye candy!”
The 2015 offering proved so popular that this year, Ruiz and company are offering up two different editions. The above one features stunner James Van Nostrand and too cute for words Riley. Who could resist those puppy dog eyes? Check out the other cover below, along with preview pics for the 2016 Hunks & Hounds Calendar.
