Anybody have ideas for a June challenge?

mummummum
June 4th, 2007, 12:20 AM
1/ Wet, muddy dawgs ( can you tell it's still raining here ?)
or
2/ Pets and sunsets
or
3/ Camoflauged Pets (spelled incorrectly I think ~ what I mean is pets blending into the background, indoors or out)

oh oh muddy dogs muddy dogs i can play that one my boys are always muddy!

June 4th, 2007, 12:28 AM
how's this for an idea...

A June thumbnail challenge? :thumbs up That way I could actually get into the challenge thread for a change! :laughing:

(just joshin'... probably still couldn't get into it... :o)

How about pets celebrating the solstice...you know...virgin sacrifices, wild parties, dancing around poles draped with streamers... All done with decorum and good taste, of course... :angel: :laughing:

June 4th, 2007, 12:32 AM
Michelle's crew would win the muddy challenge hands down. :D

Wellll.... I may just have to make to make the supreme sacrifice and take my brood down to the ravine for a good squish-splosh. Are you going be around for bath time tho' ?????? :eek:

hazelrunpack
June 4th, 2007, 12:37 AM
We've got rain, but not much mud, much to Ms Macie's dismay. The grass is just too freakin' healthy in the big yard this year! :eek: Not sure how that happened with 6 dogs tearing around...and digging...

However, I might be able to find some mud after we pull the weeds and do the sodding and seeding project in the sideyard (try saying that fast 10 times! :laughing:) So I'll climb onto the Mud Challenge bandwagon! :thumbs up

That'd be a lot of muddy dog! :eek: But actually, bath time sounds fun. :thumbs up If we time it right, we can get the dogs all cleaned and up to Frenchy's for the party in plenty of time! :laughing:

Muddy dogs are always great to see but that really isn't fair to all the cat people as cats don't often get muddy. :D It doesn't matter to me though cuz I don't even have a camera. :o

But you're right rainbow--not fair to the cats!

Hmmm...guess we're back to the virgin sacrifices! :laughing:

June 4th, 2007, 12:54 AM
Maybe we should just do a summer challenge to cover June, July and August as they all can fall under the same theme. :shrug: And, beside things slow down here in the summer as people go on holidays so it would give everyone lots of time. :o

June 4th, 2007, 01:33 AM
chico has some muddy cat pics of vinnie i know.. i could make an at home mud puddle of the kitties:D

Hunter's_owner
June 4th, 2007, 07:47 AM
Mud would be out for me, as I try my hardest to keep Hunter out of it and Cassie will not have anything to do with it :angel:

But it could be summer fun :shrug: Fun in any way our :dog: and :cat: want...swimming, mud, sunsets, lazing in the sun:shrug:

What about spring flowers? Pets with, in, or on:evil: flowers!!

rainbow
June 4th, 2007, 03:36 PM
We could do Pets in Flowers for June as everyone's flowers should be up. Then Pets & Summer Fun for July/August as that could cover lots of things and give people lots of time to post since most tend not to spend alot of time on the computer when the weather is nice. :shrug:

mummummum
June 4th, 2007, 04:07 PM
Ummm... didn't we just do "flora and fauna " or have I completely lost it ? :crazy:

Not that I have anything against flowers of course but, I spend half my time saying "Not in the garden. No, that's Mummy's garden ~ pee pee's are done over there. Not in the garden. No, that's Mummy's garden ~ poo-poo's are done over there. Not in the garden. No that's Mu....Oh the H#ll with it, go where you want....":D

We can't do anything with flowers--Cass ran a sneak raid on my peonies today and shredded them...tiny bits of shredded petals everywhere :frustrated: They are no longer allowed anywhere near flowers! :p

Sorry Rainy... no can do table art. By the time most of us oldsters heaved our mutts up onto a table we'd be in ER with screeching for painkillers for our bent backs. :D

But cute kids ya got there !

June 4th, 2007, 11:23 PM
If it ever warms up enough we could do a pets and water challenge. For example, ponds, birdbaths, lakes, sprinklers, whatever. Not neccesarily wet, they can be near the water, has to be fair to the kitties. :D

Rainy
June 4th, 2007, 11:23 PM
Under,around,beside,breaking the table!:laughing: I'm new to these challenge thingies!

otter
June 4th, 2007, 11:38 PM
We could do under the table. But that photos from my Mom's house, we don't actually have a table in our house so the on the table stuff would be tough with Molly, I would try and stuff her onto a TV table, might be interesting:eek:
We can do water though, we've got LOTS of water.....
(oops, maybe I should have saved those for the actual challenge:shrug: )

mummummum
June 5th, 2007, 11:49 AM
I vote for the water theme ~ in it, beside it or under it, consuming it ~ could be in the bath, the swimming pool, local watering hole, after a rainstorm, checking out the birdbath, snorkelling in the toilet, in the aquarium, drinking from a bottle ~ anything goes as long as there is water and an animal in the picture!

How about it ? http://bestsmileys.com/undersun/2.gif

Frenchy
June 5th, 2007, 12:05 PM
Yep , me too , water , near the water ....

So Michelle, it's water , not mud , water , what comes after the mud :D

Water sounds okay for me too...and this way cat people can play :cat: .....

June 5th, 2007, 10:27 PM
Oh, wait! I forgot about dear departed Evan...he loved to play with the hose. This was the day we celebrated him getting exercise restrictions lifted after his surgery for elbow dysplasia. I turned on the hose and he chased the splash and the spray all over the patio.

He was always somewhat bemused and disappointed when I'd finally turned off the water.

More pics to come after this weekend I'm sure. Baxter is getting a little too curious about the pond.

Cindy

hazelrunpack
June 6th, 2007, 11:29 PM
LOL, clm! Baxter is such a cutey! Nice, pond, too! :thumbs up So should we start a pool (no pun intended) as to when Baxter finds himself slipping in unexpectedly? The person who makes the guess closest to the actual day, hour, and minute gets a few hugs from the little cutey himself? :thumbs up

Maybe I should ask first--how deep is the pond?! :eek:

clm
June 6th, 2007, 11:48 PM
:laughing: Too funny. The pond is over 3 feet deep and I don't think he'd find it too easy to get out of if he went in. Our previous dog only did it once, found he didn't like swimming as his coat weighed him down too much. The hubby had to go in to get him out. We never let the dogs out in the yard unless we're out there with them because of the pond. Have to fence it off in the winter, this breed loves cold and an ice covered pond really attracts them. Had to get our previous dog out after he went through the ice one year, he was fine, but the hubby was pretty cold, we've fenced it off ever since.

I put the Cuz in many times , but she never got one paw in it, just like the goldens , I keep empty it and clean it and refill it by hope they will be true to their breed , but no , they think it's a big water bowl. :shrug: Bailey will get in a lake (Daisy used to too) but not Sam, he wants none of it.

yep.......Zoe holds the water gun all by herself . I just pull the hose out to the middle of the yard, she steps on it and then goes nuts in the water. Here is a couple of her figuring out how it works. Now I can't water anything by myself, she grabs the hose out of my hands.

June 10th, 2007, 07:28 PM
Zig was NOT happy - it's true. I told him to fake a smile...but he just wouldn't.

He NEEDED the bath though as he's always had a bit of a dandruff issue.
He gets about 2 baths per year and this one just happened to coincide with the challenge. (How convenient ;) )

He did get extra cuddles and a new bag of treats and he's back to normal now. :cat:

Thx!

Lovely Retriever pics!

I would like to post one of my favourite/not so favourite picture of Jasper that involves a lot of water and lots of dirt to make MUD!

I had just spent hours, grooming him as we had just returned from a friends' cottage and he had been full of seeds, some matts, a few burrs etc. I just let him out for a quick bathroom break and while I stood there in horror; he had a great roll! :eek: I just had to take a picture! :laughing:

LOOK at that face. What a ham!

Oh what wonderful pictures and I especially enjoy the kitties in water pics

Unfortunately maybe luckily I have never had a camera in hand when Winnie has fallen into the pond not that it would have done any good because it has always been freezing when he has done so, leaving me running to strip him out of went clothes and running inside to dry he has only done it 3 times so far :rolleyes:

Anyway I haven't had any that really enjoy the water since Callie, she also used to end up in the pond but not by accident, so I had to buy her, her own pool

On blistering days on the bald butt prairie, with lakes few and far between and the Pacific still 500 miles to the west . . . . this is what passes for "cooling down," walking down the middle of the river, with Abby, a few miles from our house:

http://www.goldentales.ca/P1090933_edited-1.jpg

In Alberta at least, the middle of the river is public land and if the creek is low enough, you can walk a long way.

Abby at our favourite waterfall on the Sheep River . . . . finding this place isn't easy . . . . listening for the falls then a right off the trail and then some bushwhacking. It's always an adventure trying to find it.

Don't let it fool ya :D . After I took this picture, and the pool filled to the top, she ran through the garden and into the house (I forgot the door open :o ) and dried her muddy/wet self on the carpet. That is definitely going to get ripped out soon; the carpet cleaning company is just making way too much money off us :frustrated: :D .

Unfortunately no she does not go to Seaworld. They don't allow pets, but they do have a kennel for guests there so that is kind of cool. If she was permitted in there, she would have a ball. She just loves all animals and would probably try to get them to play with her. :laughing:

She is actually brindle so depending on the light she can look either brown or black. When she is in the sun you can really see her colors. I'll try to get some pictures to show you her "true colors".
