November 2008 Challenge - Leaves - flora - yard pics

October 31st, 2008, 03:30 AM
What are all the ideas for November? All I can think of at the moment is playing in the leaves. :shrug:

Exactly what I thought of when I seen the thread.:thumbs up

*looks around our yard* ummmmm what about snow play? *L*

How about celebrating because soon they won't be bombarded with election ads! :thumbs up :rolleyes:

How about, since some are still enjoying fall and some are enjoying (:o) early winter, we use a more abstract theme like 'transitions' dogs playing in leaves are helping prepare the yard for the transition to winter...dogs playing in snow are making the transition to winter...but also any transitions, related to weather or not. Like showing the pet 'helping' out in the nursery to prepare for the transition to 'new baby in the house'. See where I'm going or is it too early to have had all this coffee already? :laughing:

I noticed that LOLcats (and dogs) are becoming more popular on this site.

Maybe it's time for a LOLcats (and dogs) contest.

The suggestion posts have been merged and the challenge is on.

I made the title extra wide in scope so cat lovers can play too. :)

Who is posting first?

Transition is a good idea Rainbow ! :thumbs up

November 1st, 2008, 11:20 AM

And my personal Favorite :)

Too bad it wasn't mine. :D

A long time ago, there was a neighbour cat named Gretz, who wouldn't go home.

These are scanned pictures:

Keeper chases Gretz up the tree in the Fall:

Below, Gretz socks Keeper through the fence:

Sadly, Gretz would be run over by his owners . . . . . very cool cat.

Aww poor Gretz. Another reason to keep a closer eye on your pets. :candle:
Love Keeper getting a swat through the fence. :) Keeper sure had tons of energy!! Love the pics.

I love Keely's and Mindy's pics too! Keep them coming!!!

MindysMom, cute pic of Mindy in the leaves. :lovestruck:

Rick, I love the pic of Gretz giving Keeper a swat through the fence. :D

What a sad ending for the kitty though. :sad:

:rip: Gretz :candle:

November 2nd, 2008, 10:11 PM
I posted this one already, but what the heck...He is sooo cute I find it hard not to! :laughing:

November 2nd, 2008, 10:52 PM
Cody and Nova enjoy a good wrestling match in the leaves this morning before I finally raked the yard. I have 13 bags full of leaves and am still not done! :eek: I'm so glad the majority of the leaves are now just photos :D

November 3rd, 2008, 12:56 AM
Busterboo, adorable pics of Buster on his pedestal. :lovestruck:

Jennie, they just don't come any cuter than Sparky. :cloud9:

Spatx, I love the teethy pics of Cody and Nova. :thumbs up

November 3rd, 2008, 03:37 AM
I'll throw one in, Shabbado (top) and Lynch.

Lynch is new addition to the family, 2 year old JRT/Border Collie cross.

November 3rd, 2008, 09:57 AM
WoooooHoooooo! I finally managed to download most of the pics (only took me two days! :rolleyes:) Great pics everyone! They're all so cute! :cloud9:

And great toothie shots of Cody and Nova, Spatx! :eek: :laughing: I love watching dogs wrassle! :D

November 3rd, 2008, 10:09 AM
What great pictures of all the pups!

How sad for Gretz:sad:

November 3rd, 2008, 03:28 PM
These are beautiful pics everyone and they have just put a much needed smile on my face. :)


November 3rd, 2008, 04:34 PM
What great pics. My original idea was to get Mindy to pose in the leaves like Buster but I was never very consistent teaching her "stay" so that didn't work so well. I finally threw her a treat so at least she would be occupied long enough for me to snap a few pictures.

November 3rd, 2008, 04:41 PM
Kinguni, Cute pic. :lovestruck: I was just about to ask who Lynch was and then noticed your post below the pic. JRT/border collie ....lots of energy there to keep Shabbado busy. :D Would love to see more pics in the photo forum. :goodvibes:

November 4th, 2008, 01:38 AM
babymomma - the last pic of Keeley is too cute :laughing:

Mindysmom - she looks very intent - I guess she found the treat :D

Rick - awwwww :lovestruck: a youngish Keeper :cloud9:, great "KaPow" pic through the fence :D

:rip: Gretz

Busterboo - Buster looks very proud of himself in the 2nd one :cloud9:

JennieV - I don't think anyone would object to repeat Sparky pics :cloud9:

Spatx - you know I love your pups :lovestruck: & the teethy pics are always great

Kinguni - that's too funny :laughing: the look on Lynch's face NOOOOOOO :yell: :laughing:

November 4th, 2008, 06:34 AM
Today is going to be beautiful. I have to work in the yard to get ready for winter ,I'll stick the camera in my pocket. The dogs will be out playing while I work , some how that don't sound fair.:confused:

November 5th, 2008, 04:02 PM
I'm probably one of the only ones who can post outdoor kitty pictures.... so enjoy... and yes my kitties are chipped and the feral dude is eartipped :)


How rude! :p

Thanks! Buddy may be cute.... but he's not the brightest crayon in the box ;) That's why we barely let him outside anymore....

It was actually some leaves falling... she's extremely goofy and easily distracted. A few minutes later she decided she was George of the Jungle and climbed up a little tree :laughing:

my cats are insane :cat:

November 6th, 2008, 01:54 PM
:eek: LOL....I've never seen a kitty climb such a skinny tree. :laughing:

Awwww......I bet Buddy is a real lovebug. :cloud9:

Since I don't have a backyard anymore, I'm using Parc Lafontaine as my backyard. I hope it counts :) thx - Marko
