April 2011 - Photo challenge - Pets and Springtime

Anyone got any idea for April's challenge?

What about dancing with my pet?

Feel free to suggest other topics but tomorrow is April 1st and so the topic with the most support becomes the challenge of the Month.

Thx!
Marko

April Showers, bring May flowers. Dancing before or after the MUCK?

Question posed...Clean dancing or...dirty dancing!

I'll keep this open for the day to get some more suggestions.

Thx - Marko

april showers....bathing pets, pets swimming...wet pets....

We have more snow today, but I suspect soon we'll be starting Mud Season in earnest. So dirty dancing would work good...but I could handle wet pets, too, cuz I'm sure we'll have to be hosing them down soon before letting them in the house.

SNOW?
You know Hazel, I was just about to suggest that you use that political saavy of yours and lobby to get Wisconsin moved...until I looked up at our suspiciously moody-looking sky...

How about something along the lines of pics of how our animals "Welcome Spring" Spring mud. Spring flowers. Spring babies. Spring thaw. Spring air. Springing and sproinging into Spring !!!

Any conclusions to April's Photo challenge Marko?

I took some good mud slinging, action photos today!
We started Mud Season today, too, klm. Cole has decided that it's almost as much fun to roll in as snow is And Grace, Belle and Ridge cavorted hard enough leave divots Lots of dirty dancin' goin' on out there this morning!!

Nah! I'll leave the politics to you... Besides, why would I want to move? I love snow Although I am gettin' that urge to get out in the gardens again...

Heck...we don't have divots...we have craters!!

How bout "Fun in the mud" "Dirty Pets"

I wish Marko would give the go ahead with something otherwise, we're gonna have 1 full page of posts and no pictures!

Hmmm not really clear what the majority says this month.

But pets and spring seems to encompass a lot of these suggestions so let's go w/that.

Merging posts now.- Thx! Marko

While I posted a thread on muddy fun, thought a couple of these pictures would be appropriate for the April/Spring pet photo challenge too!

Isn't Macie real name, "Miss Muddy Macie?" Just stayin' true to her name!

S.J.H.T; Smokey is so adorable. He reminds me of a beautiful gray persian hubby and I had went we first met back in umhh...1986? His name was Hershel!
