So what's the challenge for this month? How about interesting backdrops for photos? Draped sheets, in tubs, beautiful scenery, etc? Or being loved by their favourite person? :shrug:

I like the interesting background idea.:D

What about "pairs"? Chico2's pics of ying & yang :thumbs up (aka Vinnie & Chico) got me thinking. Or "opposites"?
Maybe "ying & yang" would work... interpret as you like, could be dogs and cats, flowers and weeds, hot and cold, etc...

I like that too. I have lots of pairs. :D Are you gonna "borrow" another pup for a pair otter? :p

Ok, August is now here. Who is going to be the deciding vote? I have to head to work so someone make a decision. :D I'm too tired today. :o

Ok then - I'll cast the deciding vote :)
seems we have 2 for backgrounds and 2 for pairs....but since many members like me have no pairs...I vote for backgrounds :D

Merging suggestion posts now.

Some ideas from 14+ include; Draped sheets, in tubs, beautiful scenery, etc. Or being loved by their favourite person.....and there are many other creative possibilities if we put our thinking caps on... :)

Ok then - who will post first?

This is Shadow and Halo when they were in Beirut. Well fine, that's what we called the backyard when it was under "renovation".

Below, Keeper intimidated by two big free-ranging horses . . . . they were running free, although belonging to someone, on a trail that connects three, far-flung ranches on the Eastern Slopes of the Rockies.

Abby and Keeper among the larches in late October, at Chester Lake, in Kananaskis Country, Alberta.

This theme doesn't seem to be doing very well. I didn't think it would be that difficult to find pics. :shrug: But then again, maybe so.

I know! That's what I said. I guess it's a hard challenge. :shrug: Half way through August and still on page one. :(
My good camera was in the shop until Saturday. I am going to see if I can get some interesting shots later today. Just have to find some willing participants in this heat! :yuck: I'll come up with something. :fingerscr

This was taken when Angus was a bit younger (not that he's old at 6.5 months!). DH is in the background trying to get Angus to go fetch!
