Angel Dog by Mieke Boynton

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!

    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!!!

    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…

    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
