Hi members,

Anyone got any challenge ideas this month?
Thx - Marko

No Challenge Ideas? Ok then I'll put one forward then what about "pets at the window"?

Sounds great to me, Marko. Gonna have to get the vinegar and paper towels out first though :rolleyes: :D.

Yeah, good excuse for hazel to clean her windows, too! :laughing: Hay!!! :frustrated: hazel hates cleaning windows! :o :p

Ok everyone - challenge this month is pets at the window!

I don't have any of Thorin, he isn't big on windows lol. Nookie, on the other hand, just loves to look out the window during a T-storm. He takes after "mommy" :D

Hazel, I just LOVE that picture!! Such a cute boy, and love your captions, as always :D

I hope I got this right lol. Were they supposed to be on the other side of the window? :o

hazelrunpack
June 2nd, 2011, 03:43 PM
I don't think it matters which side of the window they're on, Robyn! :D And Nookie looks perfect on the inside! :flirt: Does he really like to watch storms? LOL Three of ours cower and the other five just sleep right through them! Nanook is quite the adventuresome fella!!

He really does love them!! Thorin is the opposite, he just gets so neuroitc and hides anywhere he can (closets, bathroom etc), poor guy. Nookie though, he always surprises us, he's such a little oddball :laughing:

One night we were looking for him. I was just panicked because he wasn't anywhere in the house. There was a HUGE T-storm and I always have the patio door open during them. I thought I'd check outside just on the off chance he was out there and stuck, or panicked and wouldn't move, but nope! Neither was the case. He was there, sitting at the railing in the pouring rain just watching while lighting was flashing and thunder all around :eek:
He's sure not a typical dog :)

What a sweet shot, Melinda!!! :lovestruck:

Oh, Brina! hazel loves to watch the birds, too!!! :cloud9:

Melinda
June 2nd, 2011, 04:34 PM
if the kids are doing it Hazel, Brina wants to do it also, the mom of that little girl placed her here because she was terrified of dogs...after two weeks the dad offered me $600. for Brina *LOL* imagine!! then a month later mom pulled the girl because she was too attached to me....poor child.

Melinda,how sad is that:(

Melinda
June 2nd, 2011, 09:07 PM
very sad chico, it even had to go in my file with the city, anytime a child is removed from your care it goes on your record as to why.....to this day they all still laugh at that being on my record, such a bad bad smear on my clean slate *L*

Fred enjoyed camping in our trailer.

Hazel you had me all confused with that pic. At first I thought Cole but then I thought he doesn't have a big eye patch? :laughing:.

Nookie :lovestruck: and Brina :lovestruck:. Great pics!

I can't seem to find many of my dog pics on this computer. Will need to look on the other one. I did find this one though .... look closely at Lucy's reaction to visiting Timmie (brother's little pup). She eventually did warm up to him :thumbs up.

TeriM

Melinda, the pic on the wicker chair looking out is amazing.....:thumbs up I have a home daycare and my Boston is one of the kids too.

Melinda
June 3rd, 2011, 09:21 AM
oh wow, I didn't know that Marty, is it a city daycare? Aren't the dogs wonderful at helping us out? *L* Brina has laid claim to that chair in the sunroom and normally there is a child sitting there with her.

I'll play this month as well and i know just the kittens to photograph.

Hazel you had me all confused with that pic. At first I thought Cole but then I thought he doesn't have a big eye patch? :laughing:.

It does run in his family, though--Cole's sis, Henley, has an eye patch :D I don't think Kota is related, though...

look closely at Lucy's reaction to visiting Timmie (brother's little pup). She eventually did warm up to him :thumbs up.

:laughing: I guess Lucy wasn't in the mood for a young upstart! Riley looks pretty comfy with the little guy, though!

Love the camper pic of Fred! :cloud9: And the seatbelt shot with the dogs! :lovestruck:

the mom of that little girl placed her here because she was terrified of dogs...after two weeks the dad offered me $600. for Brina *LOL* imagine!! then a month later mom pulled the girl because she was too attached to me....poor child.

I think Lucy is wishin' she could sit on the sill with Jack and Gracie in that second shot! :laughing: What cute shots!! :lovestruck: And that one of Jack at the door! :flirt: Such a sweetie--and such a good boy, waiting for permission to enter. :angel:

That's a cool stool that Monty is on! Wish I had one like that for Lil Belle--hazel's back is tiring of lifting her up on the bed every night. :D

I really think he thought the door was closed .... or he's had too much experience running into the screen thinking it was open. :crazy:

The stool is a Rubber Maid two step. We have one at the front window which Jack uses to get up on the front sill. Monty used to sit on it in the afternoons waiting for me to come home from work. Was always nice to see him watching as I walked down the road after a long day.

I'll bet it was. :cloud9:

I've come to the realization that I have a freakisly large number of photos of my cats looking out the window, or some variation on that theme. It was hard to narrow it down to this meager handful. :laughing:

Here is Cinnamon Girl sniffing the breeze coming through the window:

I think what Bree was telling you was that there weren't enough spots on the window and, "Here ya go, Mom! I'll put a spot back on the glass for you!" :laughing: The Pack does that for me all the time...sometimes even as I'm cleaning. :p

And Archer, it'll cool off soon :goodvibes:

Cute pics, breeze! :D

breeze
June 8th, 2011, 01:12 PM
Hazel they both are notorious for putting prints on the window.

Archer will sit by you while you clean them, then when you get up he'll go lick the glass, or bark and put spittle all over them:frustrated: :laughing:

Bree just loves putting her nose print on the glass.
:lightbulb: maybe she thinks this way you will know where the window is and not go through it :laughing::laughing:

hazelrunpack
June 8th, 2011, 01:19 PM
They're just looking out for the birdies that would otherwise try to fly through the glass. :angel: :D
