The New Yorker features a wonderful photo essay of images by Naomi Harris, who traveled the country with her rescue dog, Maggie, a Shih Tzu whom Harris had found wandering an Indian reservation in Canada:

After Harris decided to apply for American citizenship, last year, she brought Maggie with her on a road trip around the United States, which she undertook in preparation for her citizenship exam. Since July, the pair have logged more than twenty-nine thousand miles.

These photos are quite wonderful.
