Jan. 2010 photo challenge - New years PET resolutions

Anyone got ideas for a challenge this month...

what about tired or sleepyface?

or snow pets....*groaning while I look outside*

How about a Hawaiian based theme? You know, warmth, no snow, beaches, umbrellas, sunglasses, etc. 'Course we can't use real sand in the house but maybe a sand coloured blankie? I am just tired of the cold. Brrrrrr

Or something like pets keeping humans warm! (It was the only way I survived last night! Definitely a 3-dogger ) And yes, cats in laps would count!

Tired/sleepy faces could be combined with keeping humans warm ....we all love our pet cuddles.

Still looking for some more ideas members!

In general, wider categories where everyone can easily play get WAY more submissions.

Maybe like New Years resolution? Like, "I promise to keep laying on the couch."

pet resolutions eh? I like that one...has lotsa possibilities!

anyone else - I'll choose the topic based on majority support within 24 hours.

Thx!

Marko

So so it's clear I think what we are after is

"Maybe like New Years resolution? Like, "I promise to keep laying on the couch."

It can be funny, true, or false....

Here's mine:

Ziglet's new years resolution is more of a barter. We told him if he did not learn how to pose, we'd send him outside to shovel all the snow....

As you can see...he failed...so we sent him outside and he's now removing snow off the roof.

AG, Maks and Vlad are such cute little helpers.

krd, pretty Asker's tummy deserves lots of belly rubs.

Glad to see Buddy and Mickey getting along so well together. So does this mean that Mickey is now part of the family? He has to be or else Buddy won't be able to keep his part of the resolution.

Frenchy, sweet Bailey ....always such a good boy doing what he should.

these are good....I can see this being a creative thread!!!!

And Marko, clearly you snapped a picture which implies that Ziggy was sitting still long enough for one....I think that counts as a pose!

Um...don't know if I'd call it getting along...more like haven't yet successfully maimed each other seriously. One minute he's the sweetest little kitten, then he goes tearing around the house terrorizing anyone he sees!

Sunshine's resolution: Learn to look ferocious. (but only LOOK, she doesn't actually want to BE ferocious) She has a pretty good start if you only see these pictures. Notice the lack of actual tetth marks.
