Last month's BW challenge was awesome!

Anyone got suggestions for this month?

here's a couple of suggestions
- sleepy pets
- yawning
- mealtime


Feel free to support any of these or suggest something totally new.

The theme with the most support by late tonite/tomorrow morning becomes this month's challenge.

thx!

marko

I've got some great yawning shots, and tons of sleeping ones. Perhaps a yawning/sleeping combo theme?

i can pull off yawning and or sleepy but no way am i gonna get an eating one,,,poof its gone.

They all work for me. :thumbs up

I seem to recall a conversation (I think in the TJT whilst lurking :o) in Feb about a picture that was posted there being a good one for the March picture challenge. Darned if I can remember who it belonged to but maybe this will prick their memory and they can suggest it here?

Yes 14+ I suggested "Spring is in the air". Get outdoors on those beautiful spring like days and take pics of your pets. :thumbs up

That was it! I thought it was a great idea except for indoor kitties. But they could find sunbeams and bright windows. :thumbs up Seeing as the drowsy pets seem to be winning out for this month maybe yours would be a good one for April. :fingerscr

I WISH spring was in the air! Currently -25 deg Celcius here, with very little relief in sight. Makes me want to hibernate, come to think of it. Yawn. ;)

So how bout "Coming out of Hibernation" sleepy pets :sleepy: for March and save the "Spring and Sunbeams" for April?

It was in LP's "What a Beautiful Day" thread! :lightbulb:

I like "Spring is in the Air" however; those nice long walks on muckie streets play havock on Mollie and Gryphon's white bellies! :yell:

But could be picture worthy though? :D

I vote for this one. :thumbs up

Hi members,
Normally we agree on the topic by majority before we start posting the actual pics.............but since it was going in the direction of the chosen theme anyway......, s'all good.

Fun pics so far - just love those legs in the air while sleeping pix :crazy:

Thx! marko

Lucy sleeping, making sure her back feet are tucked in, so "Mum" won't cut her toenails while she's sleeping!

November 2009 - Lucy eight weeks old
With her new pink collar and pink toy
This was during the day and she never did sleep in the crate at night - Mum let her sleep in the puppy bed in her room the first night and that was it !
The crate made it's way to the garage.....for storage :-)

Here is a pic of Bailey sleeping on one of the chairs. The quality isn't that great since it was taken with my phone. I would have woken her up by going and getting the camera.
She sleeps in the some of the strangest positions! Here is a cute one..

Hi, I am new here and am sure other members have their preferred way to resize.
What I used recently is picnik.com - it's free
Go on their site, click on Get Started Now
Browse through your photos and choose one
Then on their webpage they have a heading "resize"
The attached photo was 2640 x 1980 so I typed
in the boxes 600 x 450 and this is what I got
Then you can save the photo with a new title
One thing I have learned over the years is to make a copy of my favourite photos before playing around with them, as I have made a mistake and lost them sometimes.
Good luck
J.

ps If you preview post you can see the size your photo is going to be
Hope this helps

my nephew was spending the weekend at my place, and Mr. Overprotective wouldn't let him sleep by himself! too cute, and my nephew was delighted that the dog slept with him.
