The Mother Road Series BTS:
2014 I pulled over near Gallup to refill my tank. More accurately, I pulled over because I saw four dogs lounging in the back of a pick-up at the gas station.
They were the mechanic's dogs: Bert, Frank, Harry, and Dwight. Named after the presidents in office during the heyday of Route 66.
Despite their namesakes, they were nonpartisan pups. They had lovely manners and were a welcomed surprise on an otherwise lonely trip.
In between belly rubs and tug-of-war, the sun made an appearance and I took a shot of the structural beauties next door.
Years later I often wonder how the "presidential" boys are doing.
