Blue Monday #31: "Tonka at Theyland Stables"


"Waiting, Impatiently"
Raleigh, NC - February 2009 (Click to embiggen)


Whenever possible I take Tonka along for photo shoots. He's good company and I know he'll always have my back which allows me to focus on the shooting rather than what's going on behind me. On this day though, I had to leave him to watch the truck because there was a rehabilitated Red Tail Hawk about to be released into the wild after a stay in hospital and we couldn't have the dogs trying to figure out what that was in the box. He wasn't a fan of being left alone, but he dealt with it like the pro he is.Violence Unsilenced

He looks like he wants to be outside of the truck with you soooooo bad! =)

Yay. I like it when Tonka makes an appearance, he's so photogenic yet you neglect him terribly. :)

You have done a better job with him than I have done with my companion! He would have barked his throat soar!

Big or little they seem to always get impatient with us. :) But are such great companions that we don't mind. Tonka looks like a real sweetheart!

Seems like a good boy.

He looks like he's wishing you would hurry up and what could possibly be so important that you kept him waiting in the first place. ;)

They always look so sad as they guard the car, don't they? What a sweetie!
I am hosting 13 giveaways this week. I hope you'll stop by.

Mojo,
he is a lab? I am sure he would have Loved that hawk! It is nice to have a friend that watches your back.
