OMG tomorrow is the first of August already time sure flys..

what is in store for the August challenge??

How about "Dog days of summer" theme, (kitties can be included of course)

Just so it's clear dog days of summer refers to HOT summer days.

So basically pets and the heat.. I'm down with that.

One more day to go...feel free to suggest new topics but the topic with the most support wins.

Thx
M

Works for me, with the heat we've had that pretty much is any picture taken in the last 2mths....

the only thing is that there has not much sun mostly rain.. and when we do get sun it is short lived....

lol, but you do have the woofstock pictures you can use too.

nope....... there is no Bree in those ones..

it doesn't matter what ever you guys diside...

:sad: see i told you to bring her but nooooo.

I will get to see everyones sun day pictures..

Well, since it is August, we could have the challenge be photographing your pet looking august (majestic). Should be pretty challenging cuz you know when you want them to be dignified, they refuse. And weather wouldn't matter.

What is the definition of majestic?I dont knwo what it means..


Can't we have a cute theme? Not just like take a picture and of course it will be cute anyways. But maybe get them to do something uber cuute. Or dress up or something!

bump bump bump....

I like the majestic theme. I think we should keep the sun pics for when it is cold and miserable outside

How about "friends"? It could be animal friends or human friends .

Good idea TeriM this way if we choose animal friends will see more fuzzbuts!

I only have 1 animal. So how would that work for me?

You could take his pic with you

or

You could take a pic with a cute stuffie

or

You could take a pic with a playmate?

That could work..lol Never thought about thse options lol



I stioll dont know what majestic really means, can anybody enlighten me on this?

majestic would be= regal, royal looking, sophisticated.

I have to say that Chase is absolutely not capable of looking majestic.....his ears just don't allow it!

I like the friends idea, now that I have two fuzzbutts who are best buddies!

Hey Babymomma! google the woed Majestic and click on google images! Some cool ideas on majestic and how it can be interpreted!

I like the Lion!

Thank you both very much. I think Keely could REALLY pull off majestic!
I vote for majestic!!

LOL, how this for magestic:



Somebody decide for sure

It doesn't seem like there's any clear winner soooooo...Pets and the Heat it is. It's just a wide open topic so hopefully we can expect lots of pics.

Merging posts and changing the thread title now....

I like the friends one a lot...maybe next month...let's keep it in mind.

idea for photo challenge
dogs and flags

eg. if your dog is a chinese breed it could have a photo of it beside a chinese flag of your dog could be at the beach with sandcastles with flags in them. i think the more ingenious the idea the better
the more exciting the idea the better and the way more inventive unusual and never done before, so crazily brilliant idea ever it is the better

lol

Soto - it's a good idea - feel free to suggest it next month - thx marko

Love the watermelon refreshment shot! But our dogs would soooo have explosive diarrhea if they got at a watermelon!

I'm going to have to really think about what I can do to get mine here. They live in a 70 degree apartment. They get no heat

Sleepy goats in the summer heat. Notice how Nuggets face is melting into the picnic table. He also is practicing his goat yoga by sleeping with his back leg wedged behind his head...and Bob snuggled on his porch enjoying the breeze as he snoozes.

An older one of Sola just after we got her on a road trip. She sported some sunglasses to beat the heat
My favorite pic of puppy Sola, same trip lying in the grass on a golf course.
Sola about two months ago doing her FAVORITE thing in the whole world. Sometimes she brings it NEAR you

Great shots everyone! I have to admit I'm especially obsessed with Fancy Appy's goats....adorable!!!

I don't really have many summer heat pics for this year...will need to hurry up and get some! For now I'm going to capitalize on the opportunity to show off some "Baby Chase" pictures, since I wasn't a member when he was this tiny (he was around 9 or 10 weeks in these shots).

1. Relaxing in the summer sun.
2. & 3. Getting his first taste of fimmin'!

Thought I'd add my favourite pictures of in-laws dog, Heidi, since I just realized they fit well in this challenge, and I love her like she's my own

(Please disregard her fatness....we are forever trying to control that, but it is hard b/c she doesn't live with us )
