August 2008 challenge - Pets and the summer heat

breeze
July 31st, 2008, 10:01 AM
OMG tomorrow is the first of August already time sure flys..

what is in store for the August challenge??

How about "Dog days of summer" theme, (kitties can be included of course)

Just so it's clear dog days of summer refers to HOT summer days.

So basically pets and the heat.. I'm down with that.

One more day to go...feel free to suggest new topics but the topic with the most support wins.

Thx
M

Works for me, with the heat we've had that pretty much is any picture taken in the last 2mths....

the only thing is that there has not much sun mostly rain.. and when we do get sun it is short lived....

lol, but you do have the woofstock pictures you can use too.

lol, but you do have the woofstock pictures you can use too.


nope....... there is no Bree in those ones..

it doesn't matter what ever you guys diside...

:sad: see i told you to bring her but nooooo.

I will get to see everyones sun day pictures..

Well, since it is August, we could have the challenge be photographing your pet looking august (majestic). :D Should be pretty challenging cuz you know when you want them to be dignified, they refuse. And weather wouldn't matter.

What is the definition of majestic?I dont knwo what it means..


Can't we have a cute theme? Not just like take a picture and of course it will be cute anyways. But maybe get them to do something uber cuute. Or dress up or something!

bump bump bump....

I like the majestic theme. I think we should keep the sun pics for when it is cold and miserable outside

How about "friends"? It could be animal friends or human friends :shrug:.

Good idea TeriM this way if we choose animal friends will see more fuzzbuts!

I only have 1 animal. So how would that work for me?

You could take his pic with you

or

You could take a pic with a cute stuffie

or

You could take a pic with a playmate?

You could take his pic with you

That could work..lol Never thought about thse options:o lol



I stioll dont know what majestic really means, can anybody enlighten me on this?

majestic would be= regal, royal looking, sophisticated.

I have to say that Chase is absolutely not capable of looking majestic.....his ears just don't allow it! :laughing:

I like the friends idea, now that I have two fuzzbutts who are best buddies! :thumbs up

Hey Babymomma! google the woed Majestic and click on google images! Some cool ideas on majestic and how it can be interpreted!

I like the Lion! :thumbs up

Somebody decide for sure :yell:

It doesn't seem like there's any clear winner soooooo...Pets and the Heat it is. It's just a wide open topic so hopefully we can expect lots of pics.

Merging posts and changing the thread title now....

I like the friends one a lot...maybe next month...let's keep it in mind.

idea for photo challenge
dogs and flags

eg. if your dog is a chinese breed it could have a photo of it beside a chinese flag of your dog could be at the beach with sandcastles with flags in them. i think the more ingenious the idea the better
the more exciting the idea the better and the way more inventive unusual and never done before, so crazily brilliant idea ever it is the better:laughing:

lol

Soto - it's a good idea - feel free to suggest it next month - thx marko

Sleepy goats in the summer heat. Notice how Nuggets face is melting into the picnic table. He also is practicing his goat yoga by sleeping with his back leg wedged behind his head...and Bob snuggled on his porch enjoying the breeze as he snoozes.

SolaMio
August 1st, 2008, 05:56 PM
Here we have....
An older one of Sola just after we got her on a road trip. She sported some sunglasses to beat the heat :laughing:
My favorite pic of puppy Sola, same trip lying in the grass on a golf course.
Sola about two months ago doing her FAVORITE thing in the whole world. Sometimes she brings it NEAR you :rolleyes:

SolaMio
August 1st, 2008, 06:03 PM
And nowwww...
Sola's best friend Molly, a six year old GR, and her other buddy Prince Fredrik, a pomeranian/pekinese (yes they all get along famously), playing in the water at my friend's cottage
My cheesy rendition of Sola and Molly :)
Sola checking things out on a hike we took about a month ago (looooves her hikes with mom and dad :laughing:)

SolaMio
August 1st, 2008, 06:13 PM

Sola, Molly and P-Fred action shot!

Ok done now.. For now.. Promise :crazy:

August 1st, 2008, 06:26 PM
Great shots everyone! I have to admit I'm especially obsessed with Fancy Appy's goats....adorable!!! :cloud9:

I don't really have many summer heat pics for this year...will need to hurry up and get some! For now I'm going to capitalize on the opportunity to show off some "Baby Chase" pictures, since I wasn't a member when he was this tiny (he was around 9 or 10 weeks in these shots).

1. Relaxing in the summer sun.
2. & 3. Getting his first taste of fimmin'!

Frenchy you need to find something more irresistable to put in the pool for them to go in after it, like ice cream :laughing:

All of these pictures are so great. If figures though, I live in a state known for the heat and I've got no pictures for this challenge. :frustrated:

Abby and Keeper, sharing a mountain stream on an excruciatingly hot day:

Below, river walking in Threepoint Creek with Abby, only a few miles from our house. This qualifies as the local swimming hole in our lake-deprived, semi-desert area!! The creek is shallow enough for all of us to go for a walk down the middle. Creeks and rivers are public land in Alberta.

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

Below, ditch running with Abby . . . . a thunderstorm gathering behind her. Sadly, we didn't make it back to the house in time and got hosed pretty good.

No, they haven't been "hose-abused" but getting washed off from head to foot with ice-cold well water isn't their idea of fun.

I'm going to be re-staining the deck this year as we had it stained last year with a sprayer and now it's all come off.

And yes, my dogs are cute. Drooly, but cute. :lovestruck:

..... yeah where's the hosed pics? ;)

Abby and Keeper run away screaming in panic if they see a hose . . . . . the usual weapon for cleaning mounds of prairie mud off them.

:laughing: the "hosed pics" requested were You & Abby & Keeper getting drenched by rain on the way home :D..................

Below, ditch running with Abby . . . . a thunderstorm gathering behind her. Sadly, we didn't make it back to the house in time and got hosed pretty good.


Goldyy - Ringo & Chaska just adorable :lovestruck: I'll bet Ringo is just itchin' to go next door & move some beasties - who I see are keeping an eye on him too :p

dogcatharmony - the first pics of Amos & Zoe too funny :laughing:

Winston - what a good boy hangin' in the shade - at least some of the time :D

bendyfoot - Jaida knows a good thing when she finds one :cloud9:

Bearsmom - two big fuzzy pups :lovestruck:

Frenchy - drooly Sam - good way to keep cool :thumbs up

Fordgirl - Dazy's got a great sleeping spot :highfive:. Pubert :lovestruck: sleeping in the sunbeam. Funny how all cats do that even in the heat

Quite a silly question really, but i've never done the photo challenge before (seeing as i have no pets but 2 fish but am getting a puppy soter soon) and i haven't been on this forum for long, and i was wondering, is the photo challenge an actual contest with a voted winner or is it just a chance to show off some truly adorable pictures!!!!!

no, she's not comfortable enough in the water to lay down in it, although sometimes I wish she would! She still will only go in if there is some type of lure, such as a ball or stick!!

Voodoo will do that when there's grass/reeds growing under the water. She puts her head under and pulls clumps of grass up, tosses them aside, then continues until she notices we're laughing so hard!
