Remember last Thursday how it started off cloudy, then got beautifully sunny, then we had thunderstorms and hail? This time fortune smiled on me and I hit the sunny sweet spot while shooting dogs at the SPCA Hastings and Districts.
When I met Tama, he was enjoying his playtime outside and after a friendly greeting, didn't want too much to do with me. After all, I was putting a damper on his fun time. So I let him mooch up to Kirsty at the SPCA, play in the paddling pool and roam to his heart's delight.
I followed him around for a bit and eventually he found a little stuffed toy which he brought to me for a game. What surprised me was how delicately he held it in his mouth; gripping it right on the edge as if to make sure I could get hold of it too. We played catch for a bit and then voila! He posed beautifully and smiled for the banner shot of this post.
Tama's a lovely boy - come see for yourself at the SPCA Hastings and Districts.
