May 2011 - Photo challenge - Pets in Hats

Hi members,

hard to believe it but it's May!
Anyone got any suggestions for this month's challenge?

Thx!
Marko

It's so cold and rainy here, feels like we're still stuck at the end of winter. So how about something like "Looking for Spring" and any picture of pets snooping around anywhere would qualify.

After seeing all those hats at the Wedding we could try hats?? I also like the snooping spring pics!

Our guys eat hats... But as long as that would be acceptable, hats would be okay with me. That'd be good for kitties, too--I can envision lots of kitties curled up cozily in hats.

I vote "Hats On"

I'm liking the hats ideal too but snooping around in hats would be worth 2 points!

...now that's a HAT doggy lover - nice photo
Sorry, I thought that hats had been decided for May, oops
J.

Is a hood a hat?

I don't think I will ever be able to get Lucy to wear a hat ... but this photo taken our first Christmas together (2009), she does sort of have a hat on - a hood.
Can't wait to see all the hat photos submitted, might give me some ideas for future pictures. J.

This is the closest thing to a hat I think I'll ever get on Nookie or Thorin
This was taken on Feb. 26, 2011... Nookies 1 yr birthday, and quite an accomplishment for him

Marko, that is SO cute
You take wonderful photos. I always love to see them. Maybe someday our weather will be nice enough to brave the outdoors again and I'll practice!

What great pics so far!!! Cats, dogs....even a horse! All so fashionable!

It's been too wet and rainy to torture the dogs with hats here...they're already miserable cuz they're wet and we're too busy cleaning off muddy paws. So the only pics I have with hats are from a few years ago. Here's my fave, of Cass helping her Daddy with a little lawn work...

If the weather ever improves, I'll try to get some newer shots.
