September is only 11 days away what are we going to do for September??

any ideas come to mind??

Cram
August 20th, 2007, 11:13 PM
I haven't been on the board long, so I'm not sure what's been done recently (and I'm too lazy to check!).

But what about something like smiles, teeth or tongues?

hazelrunpack
August 20th, 2007, 11:17 PM
All I can come up with is "back to school"...might be hard for people with lawless pets like hazel's! :D Obedience school drop outs! :laughing:

How About "Animals Learning a Lesson"? Any old lesson will do : "leaves are fun to dive into", " a ball of string can roll all over the house" , "if I sit on your head and flap my wings it tickles your ears"... :D

I love Mmmmms suggestion on Animals learning a Lesson! My vote is here!

marko
August 29th, 2007, 10:54 AM
I like the animals learning a lesson one too - if we do choose that one, perhaps if the lesson is not obvious we could just cheat and say what the lesson was....

or any other suggestions?

thx

Absolutely Marko ~ that was my intent. I think we'll end up with some hilarious "lessons learned" with everyone naming their own !

p.s. Hazel gets the "by-line" on this one ~ I just riffed on her idea :shrug:

Yes , we should decide , it's tomorrow !!!

I prefer when members make the final decisions...it seems like animals learning lessons has some strong support...should we go with that?

So it's offical then

"pets learning lessons" :cat: :dog: :pawprint:

Frenchy
September 1st, 2007, 01:05 PM
I don't really get it ... pets learning what exactly ? :confused:

CyberKitten
September 1st, 2007, 02:36 PM
If it lessons, keep in mind that most obedience schools are for dogs and not cats. Cats teach us, lol So let's be inclusive and take into consideration all the pets here. :)

Maybe it should be what my pet teaches us?

mummummum
September 1st, 2007, 02:54 PM
CK ~ hun ~ would you please read the at least some of the posts in a thread before you reply? The September Challenge is "Animals Learning Lessons". See the funny one "Lesson" posted by Hazel about Frenchy's Bailey as an example. This isn't about obedience school or even obedience and it is about pets not a specific type of animal ~ no one and no pet is excluded.

Frenchy
September 1st, 2007, 04:33 PM

Oh so anything goes ? :D Here I go then , Paddington learning that a Great Dane wanting to "play" with him can be intimidating at first ....

Frenchy

But Monsieur le chat learned a long time ago , doggies are nice :D

My apologies!! You have to realize how little time I have to sneak away to read these!! (sighhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!) I have to do it in a hurry. Anyway, enuf whining. I get the point

And... it is JUST not my day! :sad: :sad:

Those pix do make it better though Frenchy!

September 1st, 2007, 04:53 PM
Those are great Frenchy,I have 2 million pics of my cats,but I don't think I have anything suitable for this thread,the only lesson my cats have learned this summer is that bees are not suitable for snacks:laughing:

CyberKitten
September 1st, 2007, 04:55 PM
Oh no Chico, what happened?

chico2
September 1st, 2007, 05:07 PM
CK,nothing bad,Vinnie got stung in the paw,but it's ok,no problems...Rocky and Chico already know to stay away from bees:cat:

hazelrunpack
September 1st, 2007, 05:42 PM
Hmmm...I don't have any stills that come to mind that would fit. (Hey, I never said I had any pics! :laughing:)

However, I just posted this video in Grace's thread before seeing this one--and it actually applies. Sorry, Frenchy...I know you won't be able to see it. :sad:

Anyway, just to give the rest of you some background--I use hand and voice signals when training. One day, I was working with Cole, hand-signal only, and messed up the "roll over" signal. I did it vertically instead of horizontally (you'll understand when you see the video).

The Sheriff cocked his head to the side, and thought about it a few seconds. :lightbulb: :dog: "I'll invent my own trick!" he barked. And Cole's "dance" was born! :D

He invented it all on his own and is very proud of it, so don't laugh at him. :o That's hazel's job! :laughing:

Without further ado, "Cole's trick": http://video.yahoo.com/video/play?vid=1059638

You'll notice that the two actions done by Cole are quite similar, but one is vertical and one is horizontal--just like the two hand signals! :D What a smart, logical boy that Sheriff is! (Handsome, too! :lovestruck:)

marko
September 1st, 2007, 06:33 PM
Nice start Frenchy and nice example! I love how WE are interpreting the lessons learned....but your seem obvious from your photos.

:laughing: Sweetie Helix and his moth! :laughing:

Around here, moths are a delicacy--must be an acquired taste! :p

We get that kind of reaction from the toads, though! :yuck:

Frenchy! I somehow missed the pics of Paddington and Monsieur le chat :lovestruck: --probably the connection was too slow to download them when I scrolled through the first time. :frustrated: I can imagine that Nelly would be a bit...intimidating! :eek: But I'll bet they turn into best friends in the end. :thumbs up Both Paddy and Monsieur le chat are so handsome! Now all you need is a white one! :D

Glasslass - VERY cute shot...but the size of that desk?...what child is small enough...a child the size of a Pez dispenser? LOL.

Rottielover - Cute shot - but Harley doesn't look too happy as a puller. Perhaps you need to bribe him with steak...

Mumx3 - Super-creative lessons there - Love the shots especially the fresh laundry shot.

Cram - super nice pix and creative explanations. I LOVE the shot Helix eating the moth. He looks like he's smiling (the little devil:evil: )

Nice work!

FatFat learns that a paper bag is just as nice as a store bought bed. LittlMan learns that even peas are yummy. And they both learn the lesson that "two is better than one" especially when you can beat up on your brother and mummy and daddy don't stop you.

hazelrunpack

What!?! You can't fax a cat!?! Well, hazel is glad someone finally told her! Thanks for the heads-up, Gingko! :laughing:

Thanks growler :) . Bud was a totally heat obsessed cat and could often be found with his face about an inch from the nearest available lightbulb.

Hazelrunpack - Love the action in your shot!

Soooo cute!

Shades learns lessons about the ocean. She grew up with fresh water lakes, rivers, and streams...

She learns that waves can be fun and can be scary

and she learns that salt water makes her very thirsty!!

shredy
September 7th, 2007, 11:04 PM
Shade never let a man into her bed before Willie (neighbors border collie), She learned how to fall in love, they were always inseperable...

Then she learned that she could watch everything going on in the neighborhood from the back of Dad's truck so after our car rides she would hang back there...

I miss her every second, and wanted to share some of her pics with everyone

September 7th, 2007, 11:08 PM

Oh and please continue !!! The picture with her boyfriend is too cute ! :cloud9:

shredy
September 7th, 2007, 11:30 PM
ok, you ask and you shall receive...

She learned that it's fun to play with Willie in the snow, cuz he gets dingle berries in his fur and she didn't

and she also learned that if you dig long enough you can find pinecones in the snow

shredy
September 7th, 2007, 11:32 PM
She learned that when water freezes, you can walk on it, but be careful cuz its slippery

and she learned that snowshoeing with mom is fun...

September 7th, 2007, 11:35 PM
I learned a lesson this time, I really love close ups of her face...

She loved to roll in the snow, when she found a hill she could wriggle for a while and she would slide to the bottom on her back, get up, run to the top and do it again! When we hiked in the summers, we would come across patches of snow, and she would sprint to them and in one graceful motion roll to her back and wriggle her way along...

September 7th, 2007, 11:53 PM
Frenchy, I love the pics of your Bailey, how patient he is... and yes, Shade loved the snow. She would wake us up early when it was snowing outside, whining because she wanted fresh tracks in the snow before any other dogs got out there! :pawprint: It still hurts a little remembering all the good times, but it is nice at the same time. I only wish we had digital cameras when she was a baby, oh she was cute :cloud9:

Cram - such cute pictures. Pink nails too cute. (gotta hide this thread from carmy (wifey)) or she'll do the same to poor Ziglet - He HATES having his feet touched. Cute sink shot as well!

you know, until we started the raw thing, Baby Girl was our littlest kitty!! weighing in between 9 and 10lbs!

ive been trying to get a really good picture of the red highlights in her fur. she seems to be a big hit every time i get pics of her up but really, pics dont do her justice!

while her name is Baby Girl at the vet, we really call her Moofiekins, Girlums, Poof Moof, The Puffy One, The Floofums, Yum Yumms, Licious, Vicious Lovie Kins Of Doom... or any combination thereof.... :o
