Talking August challenge - Tails (stumps & nubs allowed)

ONLY 1 1/2 days to think of an idea for August. Get your thinking caps on.

Good one for the cats....the keeshond puppies will be a challenge with those curly little piggy tails on their backs.

My daughter has a (white) boxer......and Cruiser can make his little stump move a mile a minute! So.....even little stubbies/stumps/nubs should count.

Tails sound good to me, no matter how long or short.

*off to see if I have any good tail pics*

I'll have to soak their little tails so you can actually see them with out all that puffy fur hiding them.
Some kees have very tightly curled tails, Baxters is curled but not super tight, Bentley on the other hand has a really tight curl to his. Getting pics should will be fun. It's a good challenge.

Sigh...we have tails galore here, but the big challenge for ol' hazel is getting into the challenge threads to post--they get so big so fast that her modem melts trying to download them! Sigh... But she'll and give it the ol' college try!

Hazel w/all those tails you'll have to try to get them sitting in a circle facing out w/all tails pointing inside the circle

did that make sense to anyone other than me??

Oh, ya, growler...like I'm gonna get them to sit quietly in a circle facing any way! You have overestimated the amount of training they have by about 6 dogs in a circle (I think I can manage one dog sitting with his or her tail pointing...uh...to the center point of an imagined circle of setters )

does that make sense to anyone...even to hazel????

Sigh...yeah, but you're all so far away! Around here, I can't even get anyone to approach the fence, much less come in and hold food close to the kyootles!

You want to know what's strange about that picture? The horizon is actually straight.

A combination of various slopes angling in different directions and the fact the mountains are further away on the right than they are on the left PLUS the curve of the earth given the distances involved . . . . leaves a different impression on the eye.

And then there's the tail . . .

Beautiful tail! The angle of the shot really shows it off with the gold & white separation of color. Glad you didn't shoot it from the rear! All we would see would be the cascade.
