September 2010 photo challenge - DOs and DON'Ts

Hi members!

Anyone have any ideas for September's challenge?

We've done a similar theme in the past.....buuuuuut what about "dress up" as in dress up your pet. Just a thought.

Thx!

marko

How about making it a fun/difficult challenge...taking pics of pets while attempting to brush their teeth . It was Breeze and Hazel's idea....they're so original .

how did asking about toothpaste turn into an idea for the Sept challenge on brushing teeth??
your to funny LP

Nix the brushing idea--I tol' ya, LP, I tried it and it's really hard to get all that spittle off the lens!

how about

"HOW TO"/ "HOW NOT TO"

Sort of like DOs and DON'Ts? Hmmmm...that has possibilities...

Could apply to almost anything--dressing fashionably vs fashion faux pas; good manners vs. bad manners; cleanliness vs dogliness...urm, I mean dirtiness... ( Okay, I'll admit it...the Pack has been digging in the mire a lot lately...); good first impressions vs. bad attitudes. Hmmmm...

Zig's not feelin' well these days so toothbrushing is out for me...

But

"HOW TO"/ "HOW NOT TO"
Great idea Breeze!

Please keep the ideas coming or support one of the ideas already posted. The theme with the most support in the next 24 hours becomes the theme of the month.

Thx! - Marko

I like this, there is so many possibilities for doggie and kitty cats and others.

I vote for "DO's & DON'T's" unless we already did this??

I've seen alot of scratching lately with the summer heat. With mosquitos biting people and fleas annoying pets, what about some scratching shots with funny facial expressions?

The do's and don'ts sounds like fun.

This also could be something like "Appearance vs. Reality." My daughter did a project once in school on this subject. Here's an example of what she submitted but I'm sure it would be cool to doctor up some pet photos too.

Ok everyone suggestion posts have been merged and the theme with the most support seems to be DO's and or Dont's. This is a wide open category so hope to get lotsa pix this month.

HRP explains what we are after very well.

Ok, hopefully I got this one right!


DO teach your kids cute tricks, like "high five" and bring their bowl to you!

Nookie monster just hasn't figured out which bowl he should carry, and which bowl he shouldn't. He actually learned from Thorin, not us!

I get frustrated, but I just can't get mad at him, he's so darn cute

Nookie!!! What you doin', pupster!?! Water...food...6 of one, half dozen of another! LOL

I can see why you can't stay mad! And I always look at spilled water as an opportunity to mop up some of the grime I've been ignoring...

LoL yes... and it happens at least twice a day!! I always wanted dark hardwood. HUGE mistake!! It shows every little pupper print and hair. I vacuum twice a day, but I only mop it at night. An hour after I mop, if it's during the day, it looks like I haven't done anything
