August 2011 - Pets.ca photo challenge - Jewellery - Bling or any adornment at all

Hi members,

Hard to believe it's August...geez time flies........................-and i have a suggestion. What about Pets in Jewellery?


Feel free to support that idea or suggest another, no worries.

The suggestion w/the most support in the next 12-24 hours becaomes this month's challenge.

Thx! Marko

I think I actually have one from today with jewelry...of sorts... So jewelry works for me! :D

Hmmm... the only "jewelry" I have is for Nookie. He has a tag in the shape of a bone that says "STUD" :D
Only problem is he is not actually neutered, so he can't wear it until he is (if ever)! I'd hate for anyone to actually think we would allow him to breed :o

Well, we all know he's intact because of health issues. Our Evan was never neutered for the same reason--he just wasn't up to the stresses of surgery. :(

And it doesn't have to be dog jewelry--any kind of bling will do. Even a fancy-schmancy collar would probably meet the criteria... :thumbs up :D

Jewellery works for me too! :thumbs up I can drag up a picture or two of Gryphon sportin' his gems but can also doll Mollie up for the occasion. :D

Jewelry works for me also

Cool then - merging suggestion posts now. Theme will be pets in Jewellery or any other kind of "Bling". Male pets shouldn't feel left out at all, any type of adornment will do, we're easy. :)

Ok members,

The challenge this month is - Jewellery - Bling or any adornment at all. That should make it easy for both boy and girl pets :)
This one will be fun for Carmy and me - we're not shy about putting girly stuff on our boy for this challenge. It's just the price he has to pay for livin' in the best hotel in town :laughing: :crazy:

Ok then - who will post first? :D

All are great pics.

Hazel, Grace looks sensational with her "natural" adornment.:cloud9: Very hip!!!:thumbs up

Marty, Rookie looks very macho with his bling.:lovestruck: Just needs the motorcycle.:D

Marko, Twiggy makes a very elegant Jackie O.:lovestruck:

Baco looks very stately.:cloud9: I think he is telling you that in ancient Egypt cats were allowed to eat from their master's plate so "get with the program.":laughing:

Melinda, love the ready for a night on the town one of Brina and she looks like a real princess in great grama's gems.:lovestruck:

If I can dust off my camera, power up the batteries, think of something imaginative, and convince the cats, I might post something before the month is over.

marko
August 9th, 2011, 08:11 AM
Thanks Mikischo.... but no need to get that imaginative... 2 folded paper towels and some scotch tape is all it takes to make a bandanna. :D

Melinda
August 9th, 2011, 10:02 AM
Twiggy and Boci.....man, what can I say, those are two gorgeous, regal looking cats!!!

Gracie's hairclip *LOL* I love that shot! so vivid

How cute are all of these fur babies all blinged out! Marko I have to say your two kitties take the cake, they look like they were born for bling! Melinda, Brina is such a princess! I don't think my two would sit still for such silliness, and DH would probably throw me out of the house if he saw me putting bling on the dogs... He doesn't get it! :laughing:

Anyone should feel free to post more than once - We're gonna punish our buggers a bit more next week and post another set. :evil:

August 10th, 2011, 11:28 AM
so Auntie Melinda thought that Arch would look really good with either dred locks or ribbons, and since I have no idea how to do dred locks
we went with ribbons.:D

:laughing::laughing::laughing:
he's such a good sport

Dog Dancer
August 10th, 2011, 12:01 PM
Arch, they say every dog gets to have one bite and I think this would be a good time! The indignity of it. It's very cute, and like Melinda said the pink one on top is sorta the kicker. Mom needs to buy a rope mop and pretend it's dred locks! Sorry Arch, maybe she won't see this....

It's okay, Bree and Archer--you can come live with hazel and the Pack. We won't subject you to such humiliation! :p :laugh:

Too cute, breeze!!! Give them big hugs from me for being such good sports, k? :cloud9:

(tell me you didn't eat the tassel though)

hazelrunpack
August 10th, 2011, 09:15 PM
:laughing: That Gryphon is such a character! He actually looked happy to be posin' fer ya, DOG, at least till after his tiara slipped... :D

And Mollie, you fashionable girl, you :lovestruck:

Dee-O-Gee
August 10th, 2011, 09:21 PM
It took all but less then 5 minutes to pose Mollie. As soon as I said, "stay" she didn't flinch a muscle and let me reposition the bling and tie her kerchief.

Gryphon on the other hand, is my little goof ball. He's just so eager to please.

Got a chuckle out of Breeze's kids today and many other cute/wonderful pictures including Grace so far! :lovestruck:

Melinda
August 11th, 2011, 08:00 AM
*LOL* Gryphon looks like Queen Elizabeth in that last one...looking down through her glasses *L* I love the head scarf.

marko
August 11th, 2011, 11:17 AM
That's a cute set Dee o Gee! I especially like the one of Mollie all pooped out after the celebration :)

Dog Dancer
August 11th, 2011, 11:55 AM
Okay, well first off I don't have a lot of bling that the dogs would wear. Secondly, as you can see as soon as something foreign touches them they'd rather die than look at me to take a pic! :D Oh well, we tried for bling and it wasn't such a hit. Although I think Shadow looks great in red!

breeze
August 11th, 2011, 12:04 PM
DD I don't think any of us has a lot of bling if any.. :o I know I don't

I think shadow looks great in red!!

and probably they just wanted to laze around instead of getting all dolled up to go out on the town. :D

Dog Dancer
August 11th, 2011, 12:28 PM
Halo was looking at me like "It's 6 am what the heck are you doing Mom??" And Shadow, well the ribbon was okay, but the watch on her paw was more than she could bear - she hates when we touch her feet. She had on a ring also, but her foot got cut off! Oh well. It's the thought that counts right? I also need a much better camera. One day.

hazelrunpack
August 11th, 2011, 02:15 PM
I think you're right, DD--red is definitely Shadow's color!!! :lovestruck:

Halo looks so underwhelmed with the whole photo op! :laughing: Love seein' your girls again!

Melinda
August 11th, 2011, 03:33 PM
so shadow is your watch dog? *L* ok, ok, sick joke *L* I think they look darling (and bored) in their bling *L*

Dog Dancer
August 11th, 2011, 03:53 PM
Yeah Melinda, she had a bit of time on her hands.... :laughing: Shadow is so not a watch dog! She comes to work with me, as you mostly know, and one day she was sleeping under my desk and when I left the office to go to the washroom somebody came in and stole a lap top computer and headed back out the door. Shadow didn't even wake up!!! Yeah, not a poster dog for Watch Dogs... :rolleyes: They are both very bored with the notion of bling and pictures!

The bracelet and the bandanna are loverly! :flirt: But what's the black thing on his head? :o Is it a hair clip? :o :D It is, isn't it? :laughing: Very funny! But Winston, you're stylin' my man, absolutely stylin'!! :lovestruck:

August 14th, 2011, 09:23 PM

They brought huge smiles and giggles :lovestruck: :cloud9: :D
I don't think I ever imagined all the different types of "bling" you could adorn them with :laughing:

I got a few of Nookie, but I'll have to get Thorin later. He isn't quite as cooperative, so I will need to enlist the daddys help :o

Nookie, unlike Thorin, is not near as photogenic. It took SO many pics to get these! I posted one at the bottom that will explain it all :laughing: :laughing:

Dog Dancer

DD, he would love the kissies and happily return them lol :D
The look on his face just cracks me up :laughing::laughing:
Those are the "norm" with him. He just gets the funniest expressions going... We have to take 20 to get 1 good one! :yell:
Well, maybe not that bad lol, but bad enough! And not to mention his little "lipstick" is out in most, so the "censor" comes in handy... he has no shame :laughing: :D
But it makes us laugh, so it's all good!

While Thorin, on the otherhand, is the most photogenic dog I've ever had. He is such a ham and just poses so pritty :D

Rgeurts
August 30th, 2011, 05:32 PM
You know, I have NO clue! Nookie does, Thorin doesn't. At first, one of our vets, Dr. Karen marsden, said she believed it was because he was feeling "groovy" from the phenobarbital :laughing:
BUT... he has been off the pheno for months now! So who knows :shrug:
