Question November 2008 Challenge - Leaves - flora - yard pics

What are all the ideas for November? All I can think of at the moment is playing in the leaves.

Exactly what I thought of when I seen the thread.

*looks around our yard* ummmmm what about snow play? *L*

How about celebrating because soon they won't be bombarded with election ads!

How about, since some are still enjoying fall and some are enjoying () early winter, we use a more abstract theme like 'transitions'...so dogs playing in leaves are helping prepare the yard for the transition to winter...dogs playing in snow are making the transition to winter...but also any transitions, related to weather or not. Like showing the pet 'helping' out in the nursery to prepare for the transition to 'new baby in the house'. See where I'm going or is it too early to have had all this coffee already?

I noticed that LOLcats (and dogs) are becoming more popular on this site.

Maybe it's time for a LOLcats (and dogs) contest.

The suggestion posts have been merged and the challenge is on.

I made the title extra wide in scope so cat lovers can play too.

A long time ago, there was a neighbour cat named Gretz, who wouldn't go home.

These are scanned pictures:

Keeper chases Gretz up the tree in the Fall:



Below, Gretz socks Keeper through the fence:



Sadly, Gretz would be run over by his owners . . . . . very cool cat.

Aww poor Gretz. Another reason to keep a closer eye on your pets.
Love Keeper getting a swat through the fence. Keeper sure had tons of energy!! Love the pics.

I love Keely's and Mindy's pics too! Keep them coming!!!

MindysMom, cute pic of Mindy in the leaves.

Rick, I love the pic of Gretz giving Keeper a swat through the fence.

What a sad ending for the kitty though. :sad:

Cody and Nova enjoy a good wrestling match in the leaves this morning before I finally raked the yard. I have 13 bags full of leaves and am still not done! I'm so glad the majority of the leaves are now just photos

Jennie, they just don't come any cuter than Sparky.

Spatx, I love the teethy pics of Cody and Nova.

What great pics. My original idea was to get Mindy to pose in the leaves like Buster but I was never very consistent teaching her "stay" so that didn't work so well. I finally threw her a treat so at least she would be occupied long enough for me to snap a few pictures.

babymomma - the last pic of Keeley is too cute

Mindysmom - she looks very intent - I guess she found the treat

Rick - awwwww a youngish Keeper , great "KaPow" pic through the fence

Gretz

Busterboo - Buster looks very proud of himself in the 2nd one

JennieV - I don't think anyone would object to repeat Sparky pics

Spatx - you know I love your pups & the teethy pics are always great

Kinguni - that's too funny the look on Lynch's face NOOOOOOO

Thanks! Buddy may be cute.... but he's not the brightest crayon in the box That's why we barely let him outside anymore....

It was actually some leaves falling... she's extremely goofy and easily distracted. A few minutes later she decided she was George of the Jungle and climbed up a little tree


my cats are insane
