December 2008 challenge - Pets & toys

November 30th, 2008, 04:30 PM
I assume this months chalenge is going to be Christmas. But will it be anything specific about christmas? Like pets and Christmas tree? Santa/Mrs.clause suits? Or anything like that?

Marko- Delete this if unneeded! lol

How 'bout something along the lines of "pets and toys"?

How 'bout something along the lines of "pets and toys"?

oo, I likes that idea SCM! That would work for everybody. Even poeople with rodents,reptiles,ect.

My only ideas at the moment are along the lines of pets with presents, snow photos, holiday themed.. the standard things you think of when it comes to December :laughing:

I like the pets and toys/presents idea. We can all do that very easily.

I like the pets and toys idea too. Alittle easier

Rick, looks like one of your girls will be getting coal in her stocking this year.:laughing:

December 1st, 2008, 09:31 PM
Are you sending that as your Christmas card this year, Rick? :o :laughing:

That's a hoot....Santa's hat is gonna need some laundering! :p

Thanks so much for taking the lead babymomma :highfive::) I'll be up to speed next month though:D

So for the theme...seems to me like "pets and toys" has the most support and that just makes a lot of sense given the wide variety of subject matter for all kinds of pets. Plus Rick C already posted a cutie that fits :thumbs up

Ok suggestion posts merged and the challenge is on.

Thanks all!:highfive:

Brown Christmas!!! Phooey!!!

Keeper mulls her present on Christmas morning, 2005. It's not unusual in southwestern Alberta to have a "brown" Christmas. The Foothills lie in the rain shadow of the Rockies.

CClover- Your kittie and doggie is sooooo cute! :cloud9:

Koda trying to get his present open!
I don't even remember what it was, but I'm sure it got unstuffed and shredded that same day :laughing:

This is Koda's favorite toy. His monkey.

Does snow count as a toy? Koda thinks it does! lol

December 4th, 2008, 07:09 PM

maggie and bea

December 7th, 2008, 12:52 PM
LOL, Maggie is in doggie toy heaven here.

December 7th, 2008, 01:38 PM
These pics are awesome!!! What fun! (holy pile of dog toys that Maggie's got there!).

Here is Aztec deciding which toy to start with, Kitty Kong or catnip log:

Catnip log wins:

"Um...... hellooooooooo? Can you not see that my Kong is empty? Fill 'er up, chop chop - I've got the munchies!"

"Snack time."

December 7th, 2008, 02:01 PM
LOL, catnip log wins every time.

December 7th, 2008, 02:41 PM
My M&M! You can not have it!

December 7th, 2008, 03:09 PM
I'm not entirely sure if this counts. It sort of does though I imagine.

That was the kitties new 'toy' :laughing: for a few hours. They thought it was AMAZING! So much so they decided to eat the fake berries off it. (

Managed to nab Tripod in an interesting pose before I took it away and shoved it in the closet. I did mess with the colors and take out the background though :o

December 7th, 2008, 03:37 PM
wdawson!! talk about doggie heaven! Look at all those toys and treats!!!
sugarcatmom- kitty Kong!? I have never heard of such a thing!!? do you stuff it with treats???
cute pics everyone :lovestruck:

December 7th, 2008, 03:44 PM
sugarcatmom- kitty Kong!? I have never heard of such a thing!!? do you stuff it with treats???

Unfortunately the Kong Company stopped making the Kitty Kong a while ago, although you may still be able to find some at an online store or on eBay. You can put either catnip or treats in them. Aztec prefers it as a treat-dispenser :rolleyes:, cause he's a little piggy.

December 7th, 2008, 06:14 PM
Great pics everyone. :thumbs up

It's not only rewarding :cloud9: but also so amusing to watch all the fuzzbutts with their toys. :D

December 11th, 2008, 11:27 PM
Diamond as ususal... Elephant in mouth

December 13th, 2008, 02:01 PM
As always... Cody has the new toy, this time a Jolly Ball.. and Nova tries to get it for herself. :rolleyes:


December 13th, 2008, 02:38 PM
You have seen all of these ones but they are my favorite of Maggie playing with toys. Especially the one with the Kong, this pic was snapped when she first got it too, it was our pressie to her when we brought her home in February :cloud9:

December 13th, 2008, 07:15 PM
I put the tree up today but no decorations yet. Tinka was the only one to take advantage of a new climbing post.
Presents? I don't see no stinkin' presents! :frustrated:

December 13th, 2008, 07:34 PM
awwwwwwwwwwwww guys sooo cute:thumbs up:cloud9:

Tinka in a tree:lovestruck:

December 13th, 2008, 09:04 PM
While it doesn't appear so.....Buster's favorite new toy is the red balls on the tree! :rolleyes:

December 14th, 2008, 03:01 PM

Everyone's pics are sooooo cute! Here is Lucy, she would rather eat her xmas hat than wear it. :)

December 19th, 2008, 07:43 PM
Everyone is so precious!!!!! Don't you just love the holiday!! :cloud9:
But, I'm a little bias! :D

December 20th, 2008, 09:14 AM
I'm saying that this one counts because Ziglet is in the bag that Santa uses to carry toys to all the good pets in the world. Can't you see how happy he is? :p

December 20th, 2008, 09:21 AM
Marko what an awesome picture! I hope you used that as your Christmas Card this year!! Wonderful as always!

Box, box, box......I know there is wadded up paper in the box - and wadded up paper is this puppy's FAVOURITE Christmas present!

Um......kai, may have been just a BIT enthusiastic about getting into the box and to the wadded up paper.....maybe just a bit.
Seriously, someone's gonna help me out of this.....right?

:laughing: This is Jesse - she's my sister-in-law's furry girl. She's a Border/Blue Heeler cross, about 13 years now and slowing down but wad up some paper and she turns right back into a puppy!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

She hates anything on her, when I first put it on her back she just stood there looking at me not moving. Finally she had to get it off.

December 28th, 2008, 11:32 PM
Lucky's favorite toys have to have tags :rolleyes:.
