March 2011 - photo challenge - Yawning/Sleeping

Last month's BW challenge was awesome!

Anyone got suggestions for this month?

here's a couple of suggestions
- sleepy pets
- yawning
- mealtime


Feel free to support any of these or suggest something totally new.

The theme with the most support by late tonite/tomorrow morning becomes this month's challenge.

thx!

marko

I've got some great yawning shots, and tons of sleeping ones. Perhaps a yawning/sleeping combo theme?

i can pull off yawning and or sleepy but no way am i gonna get an eating one,,,poof its gone.

They all work for me.

I seem to recall a conversation (I think in the TJT whilst lurking ) in Feb about a picture that was posted there being a good one for the March picture challenge. Darned if I can remember who it belonged to but maybe this will prick their memory and they can suggest it here?

Yes 14+ I suggested "Spring is in the air". Get outdoors on those beautiful spring like days and take pics of your pets.

That was it! I thought it was a great idea except for indoor kitties. But they could find sunbeams and bright windows. Seeing as the drowsy pets seem to be winning out for this month maybe yours would be a good one for April.

I WISH spring was in the air! Currently -25 deg Celcius here, with very little relief in sight. Makes me want to hibernate, come to think of it. Yawn.

So how bout "Coming out of Hibernation" sleepy pets for March and save the "Spring and Sunbeams" for April?

It was in LP's "What a Beautiful Day" thread!

http://www.pets.ca/forum/showthread.php?t=75443

I like "Spring is in the Air" however; those nice long walks on muckie streets play havock on Mollie and Gryphon's white bellies!

But could be picture worthy though?

Hi members,
Normally we agree on the topic by majority before we start posting the actual pics.............but since it was going in the direction of the chosen theme anyway......, s'all good.

Fun pics so far - just love those legs in the air while sleeping pix

Thx! marko

Rookie sleeping on Connor

He used to fall asleep on the golden and it was pretty funny when he would fall off from a sudden movement.

....when I was a little bitty baby....

November 2009 - Lucy eight weeks old
With her new pink collar and pink toy
This was during the day and she never did sleep in the crate at night - Mum let her sleep in the puppy bed in her room the first night and that was it !
The crate made it's way to the garage.....for storage :-)

Bailey Sleeping

Here is a pic of Bailey sleeping on one of the chairs. The quality isn't that great since it was taken with my phone. I would have woken her up by going and getting the camera.
She sleeps in the some of the strangest positions! Here is a cute one..
