One of my favourite memories is when we finally got the shot of Joplin in front of a tornado back on 24 May, 2016.
It had been two years of trying to get the perfect tornado for her to safely sit and pose in front of, plus I didn’t want her posing with a tornado that did any damage to property or life, so that was needed as well.
When it happened, I remember her just chilling in the car and not really in the mood to get out, so I grabbed her and ran her out in the field and put her down and started to try to get her to look at me.
I think she gave me one look before wanting to just lay down and sniff the dirt.
