I can’t resist republishing this post.
The post was on the Ugly Hedgehog forum and it was an introduction by a new member, Toney Barber.
This is what he wrote:
Just a quick hello before heading out for our morning walk – my dog walks me 5 miles a day! Thanks for having this great space for sharing and learning from others. I am new to the art and looking forward to achieving pro status in the years ahead. I enjoy landscape photography but am experimenting with other genres too.
Tony, what a fabulous dog.
What’s his or her name?
And soon came the answer:
His name is Loki and he lives up to his namesake without question. He is a rescue and when I first saw him in his cage, his back was leaning against the gate, his back toward me, staring over his shoulder at me. His gaze was one of relief, and it felt like he was saying “I knew you’d come”. Two and a half years ago this awesome dog came home with me and, well, as they say, “the rest is history”.
Back to the photograph that came with the original entry:
Isn’t he gorgeous! And that’s an understatement!
I then asked Toney if I might republish the photograph.
Again, in time, Toney replied:
Of course. I’m attaching another shot from the same session. Shoot me a link to your blog. I’de love to check it out.
And this is that second photograph of beautiful, handsome Loki!
(Please note that permission has been specifically granted to me to republish the above two photographs and that there is no authority whatsoever for the photographs to be copied from this blogpost. I need to say that!)
But I will close by saying that I am extremely grateful to Toney for allowing me to republish these photographs of the very beautiful Loki!
What a beautiful dog!
