Anyone have ideas for August.

I have an idea! What about bald cats :laughing:

Seriously, feel free to suggest some ideas.

thx! Marko

hmm no ideas yet eh?
- What about pets at play
- pets in mid-sleep

any takers? :)

How bout pets "Camping or Cottage"? It's the season! I don't have any pics myself but I'm sure some of these guys take their pets on summer holidays.

Although it may be the season....seems a bit restrictive for members that have no cottage and don't do any camping :shrug:

That said, if that theme gets the most support in the next 24 hours, it will become this month's challenge and we'll just have to rent a cottage :D

How about pets through or with glass? Looking in or out through a window or door, or maybe just taking a drink out of your glass :laughing:

I like the pets at play idea! I seem to have an abundance of those since getting Montana... who woulda guessed ;)

Yep my vote "Pets at Play"

how about pets favorite summer hang out places,windows,decks trees,ect ect

Seems pets at play has the most support so it will be the theme this month.

Merging suggestion posts now.

The Pack plays a lot!! And I just happen to have pics (imagine that! :laughing:) to share.

Grace likes to steal the toys and hoard them. She's been known to have 5 Kongs, a couple of Kong balls and two Kong saucers in her stash by the end of the play session:

Ember enjoying a Kong saucer before Grace gets her teeth on it:
77961

"Throw it, Mom! Throw it!! Pleeeeeeeeeezzzzzz!"

A few more....

Cole and Macie cornering a varmint in the hummingbird garden (that's their favoritest game of all):
77963

Macie crossing under the fence (to get to the other side, of course, in case you're wondering....cuz the grass is always greener over there :p). She cannot be contained--she goes from basement yard to big yard to side yard at will, but thankfully has no interest in getting under the main fence to the Great Wilderness outside:
77964

Belle and her brother Ember rough-housing in the big yard:
77965

August 2nd, 2012, 12:36 PM
And one more set.

Goofy Grace trying to raid a few coneflowers from the kennel garden:
77967

Brier with a Kong saucer purloined from Grace's stash while she was carrying out her raid:
77966

And finally a gratuitous shot of vigilant Ms Macie keeping the yard safe from villainous varmints like Dangerous Butterflies, Marauding Grasshoppers and Dastardly Rabbits :p:

George loves his ball, I can see, jacksmo!! (I love George! :flirt:)

Livia is a sweetheart! Her coloring is so pretty, LL! And purple is definitely her color!!! :lovestruck:

This will be an easy one for me, considering all Nookie and Montana do, besides eat and sleep, is play :D :laughing:

These were taken on our trip. Not sure why, but Montana has become obsessed with poor Nookie's tail :laughing:

Nookie looks like the immovable object to Montana's irresistible force! :laugh: Nookie doesn't budge even when Montana is practically standing on him! What a hoot! Poor Nookie's tail, though! :o :laughing: Those two are just too funny together!

Yay for play!!! I got me an abundance of play pics too.

Here's Peppercorn playing by himself on the stairs:

Carrot and Peppercorn wrestling on the stairs:

More stair wrestling (if stair wrestling was an olympic event, these guys would get gold):
http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f177/aztec_egypt/Playing/e4eb66e8.jpg

For such a dainty looking thing, Cinnamon Girl can sure hold her own against the boys:
http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f177/aztec_egypt/Playing/2137d6f2.jpg

Here, she's being much gentler playing with Zack:

Carrot playing peek-a-boo:

Cinnamon is such a beautiful girl. Who is she playing with in that pic?

That would be Carrot, who is pretty much unrelenting in his pursuit of wrestling partners. Cinnamon has resorted to bopping him on the head every time he walks by as a preemptive strike. Sometimes he recoils with a "what was THAT for?" look on his face, and sometimes he interprets the bop as an invitation for more wrestling, much to Cinnamon's chagrin.

Awesome photos that I've seen so far and yes Gryphon's more a chaser than a catcher CsqU4r3d.

That goes hand-in-hand with his swimming capabilities. :headslap:

On a side note, I was trying to find this shot last evening and couldn't remember which computer I had it on but, found it tonight. :thumbs up

Gryphon and my Grand-dawg Zoey having a bout with a ball.

Maybe you should try spraying some Apple Bitter on Nookie's tail and Montana
would stop biting the tail. Poor doggie!
