April '08 Challenge - Foolish pets - Pets doing foolish things

March 31st, 2008, 11:39 PM
:eek: We need to hurry up and decide.

Here is pbpatti's suggestion....

It sounds good to me.

Any more ideas?.....
:thumbs up

Can't really think of anything else... except April showers... mud... but kitty owners wouldn't have as much opportunity!

I was wondering if you were coming to rescue the Challenge thread Rainbow

How about..........toes :shrug: or eyes :shrug:.....something spring-ish? :shrug: though that won't work for Ont & Qc :p

Foolish is good :thumbs up

Yep, "playing the fool" and "acting foolish" sounds good to me. :thumbs up

I think we need @ least 1 more person to chime in here :laughing: before we make it a consensus

I'm sure we'll get lots more tomorrow.
But they'd be awfully "foolish" not to agree with us.

good one rainbow!

foolish\silly\goofy works for me

foolish\silly\goofy works for me

for YOU wd, or the dogs?

I like it. Foolish and goofy isn't too pet specific either, fit's all pets.


I'm sure there's no shortage of "foolish" pet pics.... but just to chime in another idea... Earth day is april 22 so we could also do an "earth" theme.

How about April Fools' the 5 new inches of snow outside this morning. :rolleyes:

You know, April 1 is looking a lot like March 1 which looked an awful lot like December 1...

Foolishness in general, eh? Hmmmm... By the time I get any new pics back, this thread will be untouchable by my modem, but I'll try to get some anyway. hazel likes foolishness!

for YOU wd, or the dogs?


I'm sure there's no shortage of "foolish" pet pics.... but just to chime in another idea... Earth day is april 22 so we could also do an "earth" theme.

:eek: I was hoping we could kinda hold off on Mud Season, but I'm sure I can find some "earthy" pics if use this idea.

I'm sure there's no shortage of "foolish" pet pics.... but just to chime in another idea... Earth day is april 22 so we could also do an "earth" theme.

but all the pics i took on saturdy are black

I was hoping we could kinda hold off on Mud Season, but I'm sure I can find some "earthy" pics if use this idea. :laughing:

I'm not so sure earth day theme is such a good thing either. My dogs aren't caring for their greenspace, they're killing it.
That doesn't include all the mud that's coming in the house constantly.


April 1st, 2008, 12:52 PM
so whats the theme?....if its foolish\goofey\silly...then here ya go

April 1st, 2008, 01:03 PM
LOL - I love that pic!

April 1st, 2008, 01:29 PM

April 1st, 2008, 03:06 PM

April 3rd, 2008, 03:59 PM
Hopefully this counts as goofy. Made us laugh!
Sam (dog) Mylee (kitten)

Mylee has her little body stretched as far as she can so she gets her ball but doesn't get closer to Sam. Sam couldn't care less.

April 3rd, 2008, 05:20 PM

April 7th, 2008, 11:50 PM
Thank you Growler,Chico, Rainbow and everyone else, but actually my family is arguing with me that it's her mom Roo. On this picture it's so hard to tell. That day my daughter was celebrating both dogs, eventough one was born in April and the other one in June. Here's a picture of my 9 y.o. cat Pinky. He never scratched anyone, not even my son who's now 15. When Pinky was a kitty, my son would carry him around for hours, Pinky always had this look on his face (be patient, he will eventually let go) Now Pinky & my son are so close. I put it on an other post, but I can't find it. I read every post and look at every pictures and I enjoy it very much. I think that my husband thinks I'm spending too much time on I wish I could write to everyone, but could you imagine how much more time I would spend :laughing:

April 7th, 2008, 11:54 PM
Sylvie28 Pinky is cute too :cloud9: i love when they stretch a paw out towards you..."Come closer & pet me" they seem to say :laughing:

April 8th, 2008, 12:02 AM
Here's one of my son and Pinky. Pinky go is name because is nose is pink and at the time we got him my kids were watching the cartoon on TV, Pinky & the brain :)

April 8th, 2008, 12:05 AM
Thank you Growler, I wish I could make the last picture bigger, but it exceed the bites required :shrug:

April 8th, 2008, 12:08 AM
Well that's good in a way - you have to be very very careful posting pics of kids online *sigh* you never know what :evil: people are looking :)

Gail P
April 8th, 2008, 12:09 AM
:laughing: :laughing: ....silly boy. :crazy:

Actually that would be silly girl. Rain's my one and only girl in a pack of boys. And now that I think of it, not only does she do the hula hoop she's a hula dancer too. :p As is Lightning :laughing:

When not busy with hula, she keeps busy pushing the boys around.

"You first"

April 8th, 2008, 12:12 AM
awwwwwww :lovestruck: hula dogs :lovestruck:

April 8th, 2008, 12:23 AM
you have to be very very careful posting pics of kids online *sigh* you never know what :evil: people are looking :)
I'm not to worried, this site seem's pretty secure. No one as my address or any details on me, and I don't think or I hope that any pervert would look on an animal site for childrens. Thanks anyway for the warning. I was more worried about these kind of things when they were younger, but now my daughter is 18 and my son is 15, 5'11 and he weight 180 lbs :thankyou:

as ridiculous as Tucker is sometimes, I don't have very many "foolish" pics of him... I did find this one though... posing for the camera (I had to censor it!)

April 24th, 2008, 08:53 AM
:laughing:Jessi I love the way you censored.

Chico, that last picture of the 3 boys is adorable. What's Vinnie looking for? And OMG, your yard is beautiful!

April 25th, 2008, 02:38 PM
Foolish Bud :rip: who loved heat wherever he could get it, even on a lightbulb :lovestruck:.

Foolish wet Riley.

What da ya mean these aren't edible :rolleyes:!

April 25th, 2008, 02:51 PM
More Riley foolishness :D.

Tunnelling to where?

Loving the hose as a puppy .... hates it now :frustrated:.

Must not just chase ball, must plan full out attack!

April 25th, 2008, 03:08 PM
and of course foolish Lucy (much harder as most of her pics are pre digi-cam).

No mom, honest ... I wasn't in your flower pots :rolleyes:.

Hey, don't you know dogs are supposed to wear clothes .... let me just help you out of that :D.

Lucy loved to hop in the shower with us as a puppy but on this particular occasion felt that the grapefruit soap didn't taste nearly as good as it smelled.

April 25th, 2008, 03:51 PM
Aww Teri,those are all great:thumbs upad you are right,without animals in the house,I am sure it would be pretty boring:laughing:

April 25th, 2008, 06:28 PM
Vinnie saying prayers and Chico catching raindrops are calendar-quality! The lampshade shot is hilarious!

April 25th, 2008, 06:37 PM
aww all so cute.... i never catch them doing something silly.... (will start to carry my camera...)
im glad to see im not the only one with toys all over my house!

April 25th, 2008, 09:00 PM
I won't comment on all of them because it would be too long as I love them all :laughing:

BUT .... Lucy ..... :lovestruck:

April 25th, 2008, 11:47 PM

April 26th, 2008, 12:14 AM
No mom, honest ... I wasn't in your flower pots :rolleyes:.

April 26th, 2008, 07:51 AM

Well, I know some of these are repeats, but I had to include Alley eating tomatoes and in the fridge..

April 26th, 2008, 08:38 AM
I need that ball so bad, I fit through here don't I? I am so suprised she never got stuck in this spot, I really thought it was going to happen as she got bigger.

The last one is upside down Chloe face, sooooooo cute :lovestruck:

You've heard of the cat that ate the canary? Well..........
Terrific pics everyone!

April 28th, 2008, 11:42 PM
Sapphire-Rose is adorable :lovestruck: :laughing: What was she up to? That pose looks like she's getting ready to rooroo @ you :cloud9:

April 29th, 2008, 04:27 AM
Sapphire-Rose is adorable :lovestruck: :laughing: What was she up to? That pose looks like she's getting ready to rooroo @ you :cloud9:

LOL! Sapphire is quite a :clown: . Sometimes she'll make funny poses when I take pics of her. The pictures just don't do her justice, everyone who sees her in person falls in love with her. I've had perfect strangers approach me when we're out and about just to greet her.

April 29th, 2008, 05:39 PM
"Upside down Chloe" with the teethies - great shot!

April 29th, 2008, 06:34 PM
Shredy, great air shot of Chloe :thumbs up

Wayne, Beethoven could be poster dog for the Rolling Stones. :D

patti, at least Sable is staying out of the way for the renos. :D

MissDorsie, love Sapphire's pose. :crazy:
