a.k.a. “Banjo”, “Mister Banjo”, or “Bad Dog!” :)He’s my best mate, and he was sent to me at a really… “eventful”… time in my life. I wouldn’t be who I am without him!

He’s beautiful. My bluey – Matilda- was 15 when I had to have her put to sleep. Cancer…she was my best friend, by my side through life’s trials.This is such a beautiful shot Mieke, really love the lighting and angle
Oh, I’m so sad to hear that, Dharna :(15 years is a good life for a dog, though. Heelers are so loyal. Banjo won’t let me out of his sight… and he’s impossibly protective. I love him to bits!!Thanks for the meaningful comment, Dharna. I really appreciate it!

love this SO much !!!! brilliant !!!!!
Thanks, Pene :) He’s the best!
What a gorgeous portrait!Another pearler, Mieke!
Thanks, Rob. He got a nice big steak last night =D
Awesome Mieke ……… wish i could get my Blue Girl to pose long enough ……… would love a pic like this of her.
He never used to sit still long enough, but he’d spent the whole day running around with the neighbour’s dog so he was a little bit more subdued than normal. Which I took advantage of, naturally!!! :) Keep trying… one day you’ll get it!!!
Wonderful light Mieke and Banjo is gorgeous
Thanks, Josie :) Yes, he’s a rather handsome fella, I must agree!! =D
I love hin Mieke trueblue.
Thanks, Donovan!! =D
Lovely light & portrait of your mate.
Thanks heaps, Mick. He’s a bit of a PITA most of the time, but I can’t imagine life without him…=D
Such a beautiful shot, and a beautiful dog as well
Thanks heaps, Kenny. He’s pretty special!
So beautiful, love the lighting! The concentration too! My dog is half blue cattle dog, half border collie and is very much this shape and has the same beautiful expression!
Thanks so much, Catherine! I love cattle dogs… blueys, red heelers, kelpies… and border collies are the sweetest! People have asked if Banjo’s a collie before. I doubt it. But then again, he’s what we locals refer to as a “Derby Special”… I only know who his mum is!! =D
CB‘s Miss Mieke……can’t wait for you to meet Miss Bamboo next year. Claire has a shot of her up on RB:o)
Is this Miss Bamboo??. If so, I’m laughing… she looks like BIG trouble!! I look forward to meeting her too =D
