May 2010 photo challenge - Thankful

Any Ideas??



April showers bring may Flowers???

bump bump bump

where is everyone's thinking caps??

In honor of some of those cherished pets.ca pets that have moved on to the rainbow bridge in April I think we should do "thankful" pets for May.

Examples could be:
Fred is thankful for a nice warm sunbeam
Lucy is thankful to have lots of cookies today
Riley & Sam are thankful to be best buddies
etc etc

Or we could do a sun theme?

Another idea could be "Let me in/out or up/down" .

i like the thankful suggestion - any other suggestions?

The theme with the most support in the next 24 hours wins.

Thx!

Marko

Thankful certainly has lots of possibilities.

Some other suggestions for future themes:
  • rain or shine
  • favourite places
  • hide and seek or simply games animals play
  • tail tales or heads and tails

More bumpety bumps...

I'm with TeriM & Marko on the thankful idea.

I like that idea too.

and just because I had this thought today and didn't want to forget it for a possible future challenge ...

Our pets and the motto they live by .

I don't think hazel could handle knowing what the Pack's motto really is She prefers to live in her own little imaginary world where they all live to please her...

This thread is just making me go "Awwwwwwwwwww" Except for that picture of Squeak, 14+, and aslan's popcorn pic, both of which got me into a giggling fit.

I absolutely love that Iggy and Crash pic, Chris!

Yep, that's about it. He sits on a bench or swing and setters fall out of the sky miraculously and join the Pack! Saves on travel costs to have them delivered that way

Generally he gets a good 10 minutes per dog And only the girls try to get up there...although Ember likes to sit up there with me on occasion.
