    This Guy Is Taking Goofy Photos Of His Dog Posing On Chairs To Raise Money For Cancer Research

    It started as a way to make his sick wife smile.

    This is Luna, a 9-year-old labrador and husky mix. For the past 2.5 years, she's been doing silly poses on chairs with the help of owner Robert Pacey.

    Whenever he takes Luna on a walk near their home in Vancouver, Canada, the two look for chairs or other items people are constantly leaving in a nearby alleyway.

    "It's an underground chair economy," he told BuzzFeed News. "They're literally gone the next day. It's truly bizarre."

    His wife, Diane Gagné-Pacey, was recovering from breast cancer at the time, and the Luna On Chairs series made her laugh.

    Now, Pacey wants to use his blog to raise money for cancer research.

    He'll gift a shirt with Luna on it to anyone who donates $50 or more to his Workout To Conquer Cancer campaign.

    "It's our family raising money for something that means so much to my wife," he said.

    Luna might not know her efforts are helping charity, but she does enjoy the work, Pacey said.

    "She hops up, she poses, she can hear my camera and she knows when she’s done," he added. "When she’s done, we have to celebrate. She gets super excited. She knows that she’s done something we do together."

    More than 150 photos in, Pacey doesn't plan on stopping anytime soon.

    "I'm just really glad this is making a lot of people smile right now," he said.
