July 2008 challenge - Pest & bug patrol (Bugs, kids - things that bother our pets)
any thoughts on a july thread?
Oh - I have a few ideas:
eyes, paws or noses
fun in the water
playing with friends
dogs and cats together
dog's best friend
dog with a job (herding, obedience,hiking.......etc)
"leave me alone"
me and my dog(s)
How about Bug Patrol?
or Pets in Shades ? (although some may be scratched silly in the process!)
Or Best Hawaiian Shirt? (again injuries possible for us cat people!)
Or Hot Lazy Days ? (I mean who doesn't have nappers here?)
Or just plain old Time For Treats ? (Regular or ice cream etc...)
Those are all good ideas Sabine!
Does anyone have a list of previous photo challenges so that we don't overlap?
We also have to make the photo challenge cat friendly so I have a feeling that "fun in the water" is out of the question!?
I like the idea of "me and my pet(s)"
If you look at the main page of the Photo Challlenge forum you can see what the challenge was for previous months....
And, yes, the themes need to be cat friendly too.
I love the Bug Patrol idea kr!!!! Great thinking Heaven's knows there's lots around this year!
We have a lot of bug patrolling going on here, even as I type. Everything from mosquitoes to June bugs to butterflies...and horse flies big enough to scare even the Sheriff inside (Coley hates bugs!
I can get bug patrol pics...getting them posted might be another matter
if we do the bug theme....can i post my wifes pic...
I've got nothing on bug control - would vermin control work ?
Dogs and Cats.
Kids and their Pets
Lazy Summer Day
Upside down Pets
hazel try compressing them with winzip or winrar before you try to email them.
lol, i can definately pull of upside down pets.
They are bugs. Just of a bigger variety. Can't believe you live in a bug free zone. Where is it? We all might move there!!
Ok then how bout Pest Patrol... that covers bugs, vermin, other pets and children!!! (Especially the children!!!)
(Really I just want to get in a pic of Buddy and Asker playing "Whack-a-Moth" on the office window!!- Sometimes I come in here at night and turn on the light just so they can play!
But I like "Pest Patrol" idea, too! Or "Varmint Vanquishing"
I like the pest control idea Both my dogs hate flies with a passion. Nothing can stand between Cody and his fly-hunting. Nova likes to kill ants... and dig up worms in the garden
Man!! I didnt have my camera the other day but Dazy smailed at me and her teeth were full of ants!!! Like a big ol'grill full of ants smiling up at me! LOL!!! Too funny!
Is this the theme for July? Pest control?
Am I the only one who thinks this is kind of gross? LOL....I'm very anti-bug But as long as we can take creative license with what counts as a pest I think it's a good idea!
Bugs are certainly gross! But also hours of entertainment (or minutes if they're quick) for our furry ones. Plus I think to the furry ones.... other furry ones and kids also count as pests most days!
Heck the way we always have a camera in their faces... I think we count as pests too!!
I really think that dogs and kids would be kind of cute.
I really like the bug patrol idea! I don't think I have any buggy/pest pics though, but would be fun to see all of yours! my lazy bums can't be bothered to get up from the couch for most bugs, and if they do bother, its usually a mean one that can do damage to them... i.e. wasp, hornet, stink bug. I've already taken my cat to the ER for a bee sting on the eye, so I tend to shoo them away from the big bad bugs now.
as for "pests" i'm usually too busy chasing the cat to get her to drop the mouse/mole/vole before she gets back into the house with it... no time to snap any pictures, lol
I think it'd be a great challenge though!
As long as it's bugs , please , no mouse
OK...seems like the bug - pest theme has the most support. Merging posts to make it official. Thx M

Lettin the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin it back in.
Most of the stuff people worry about ain't gonna happen anyway.
