Lush green fields with flowers swaying, azure blue lakes, cloud-piercing mountains, they pass through tiny villages, and then the adorable white Swiss Shepard who makes everything even more beautiful, thanks to her pro mum. The latter exactly knows what to capture, when, and how.

Sylvia Michel told Insider that people are thankful to see something beautiful through them, as the world continues to stay in lockdown.

Understandably, people who’re eager to see the world again find solace in Rasta and her mom’s journey through the lakes, waterfalls, and mountains.

And to do something that thousands are liking, all Michel does is to capture candid moments of Rasta as he roams in front of her. Sometimes wagging his fluffy tail, sometimes, posing on a rock, sometimes jumping and eating dandelions, and as adorable it can get.

“Nothing More Authentic Than A Dog”

“It goes right into your heart when you see Rasta, you have to laugh. It’s just, laughing is so, so important, especially in a crisis,” Rasta’s owner told Insider, adding, “I think there is nothing more authentic than a dog.”

White Swiss Shepherds like Rasta is one of the make by-breeds of German Shepherds. These gentle majestic dogs, unlike the german shepherds who can be aggressive and very outgoing. The kinds of Rasta tend to be softer and shy, according to Animal So.
