July 2009 Photo Challenge - Pets and Flags (or flag colours)

So, I know it is early but I was thinking of suggesting patriotic pets for July seeing as how July 1st is Canada Day and July 4 is US Independence Day (I think that is the right term). Seeing as how celebrations happen so early in the month I wanted to plan ahead .

Ideas for pics could be pets with flags or even just the colours of their countries.

Thoughts?

I'm going with a little liberal with the creativity on flags until I can get a Duffy w/a Canadian Flag pic

Here's Duffy w/my Stars Hockey Flag that's hanging on my livingroom wall

Mollywog I don't live on SSI, infact I haven't even visited there yet I used to work painting for a friend who used to live on SSI and I like the colours on the flag.

Molly is adorable in her bandana

Thanks, that was taken a couple of years ago just after her & I moved into this apt. Natural light is the best for Tortie colours

Tacogrl yup definately not happy but so very cute

Chase Mom Adorable I've always loved Kailey's colours
