Ok here's the new challenge based on your suggestions.
December pet photo challenge - Holiday pics - hot cold or snuggly
I'd love to see multiple shots this month since this is such a broad topic.

I'm resizing mine now...and will post in a few minutes. - Can someone beat me with the first upload? Tick, Tick, Tick....

Thanks!

Quick on the trigger finger Wayne. :highfive:
Really cute shot of Maggie! Love it :lovestruck: and She even looks like she doesn't mind posing.

Here's my shot of Ziglet along the same theme. I really like this shot because it reminds me of the little dog from "The Grinch that Stole Christmas" - That little dog always looked deliciously unhappy.

Rick, what is she gnawing on? Ice?

Abby is gnawing on the inside of her toy, in this case a filler resembling a plastic water bottle. Don't worry - I picked up the elastic band in front of her and took the bottle away eventually.

They particularly love finding the squeekers inside their toys.

I love looking at all the pictures...so nice that other people like to dress up the pooches too! It really seems like they know what we are all up to and are not impressed!

Mine only cooperate because they are incredible treat oriented so they get a sit/stay treat and then I hold the treats over my head or out to the side and take the picture with my digital from the hip, the chest, out to the side...anywhere BUT from in front of my face because Ginger (golden) doesn't like her picture taken and looks away!!!! what a diva!!!

Next time I will video the head gear coming off...happens very fast!!!

marko
December 17th, 2007, 11:28 AM
Thanks Frenchy! - I really only get to take these because I have an SLR (as opposed to a point and shoot) which allows for a fast shutter speed without lag (that extra half second to one second AFTER you press the button to take the shot).

Really, one second later and Ziglet is somewhere else (packing for a Florida vacation - yeah right - he wishes....me too).
Such a prissy model he is. :p

I know - he was always against it, so I was shocked last night when he offered me an early christmas present and showed me the outfits (which are actually clothes for a teddy bear) ! He even got little tiny stockings for the kitties! I think he's a keeper! :lovestruck:

Well,Jake certainly looks grumpy :laughing: Alley looks like she's enjoying her outfit,so sweet :lovestruck:

Actually, Alley hated that outfit :laughing: That's why I'm holding her - she squiggled like crazy on the floor so I couldn't get a good shot of her. The outfit came with shorts, booties and a hat, but they were too big for her :sad:

Jake was actually just lying there when I put the hat on him and didn't seem to care when I did it. Maybe that's his natural expression. :rolleyes:

Say, anyone have an idea how long to roast a turkey for? 7 kilos of it, stuffed with ground veal/raisins/dried apricots/pine-nuts. :offtopic: but ... well, it IS a bird!

December 23rd, 2007, 03:34 PM
I don't know Sarah,yours is probably a fresh one,I bought a 7 kilo one too,but it's one of those cook-from-frozen already stuffed Lily-Dale and it takes 7 hours.
Misti is such a beautiful cat and I bet the little runt will be equally so,I wish I could get a little kitten:cat:but I am too old,I might not live another 20yrs to take care of him:sad:

RUBBISH Chico!! You'll live to be 90+ and in great shape, just like my neighbor across the street. At 92 she still lives at home (alone) and walks up and down her driveway every day - except now with the snow and ice, no need to tempt the devil and risk breaking something!

I googled the turkey and came up with 12-16 lbs turkey = 4-5½ hours, so it's in the oven and smelling nice already. I got a butterball, defrosted it and stuffed it with ground veal/apricot/raisins/pine nuts. No MSG :D or I'll be :sick: tomorrow!

Presents are under the tree, since they've moved my Christmas, might as well do the whole thing. But the "ribbe" is for tomorrow night, with the "surkål" and gravy and potatoes :) don't have any aquavit though, oh well.

The last pic is really sweet. We had company last night, and they couldn`t get over how all our furries got along so well and played and/or just left eachother alone. Balanced animals will not fight for nothing, there is a family respect born from being in the same house with humans who don't panick every time a cat and a dog is in the same room. Proof in your pic as well.

I plan to eventually get all my 'regular' pics scanned into the computer and then put them on disk and leave them at my mom's or something (one of my biggest fears is losing all my old pics in a fire).

Wolf wins hands down the most beautiful dog in the world award. LOL He was an amazing creature.

Is it just me, or does Willow look like a little penguin in that picture?

He liked to scratch his back on the lower branches of my artificial tree. :wall: This time a couple came dislodged and fell on him. He didn't care. He just laid there like he meant to do it. :eek:
