July 2011 - Pets.ca photo challenge - Pets Drinking

Friday July 1st is almost upon us (tomorrow by the way)
any ideas??

I'm still stumbling over the realization that it's July already tomorrow! Where'd June go?

Hmmmm...July pics...gotta think on that for a bit....

so am i hazel I blinked and June was gone

I think our problem was that June was cold enough to feel like April or May so we never noticed it was here!

Hmmmm...how about "A pet's thoughts on summer BBQing". A picture of a pet looking at some sort of food and a caption... For example, and this doesn't count cuz this is from Thanksgiving, something like this pic with the caption: Forget the grill! Looks done enough to me! Let's eat!







love it..

*L* I love it, oh we have the same tea pot *L*...have we done animals and kids to death? what about..........animals celebrating summer?

Is your tea pot as old as mine? Gadz, I've had that thing forever! It looks much cleaner in the pic than it does in real life.

Animals celebrating summer would work...or animals running from summer bugs! Big ol' confident Cole got chased inside by a horsefly this morning.

Hazel, I bought mine at a yard sale cause it matched my casserole dishes and we're going back ummmmmmm well daughter was in a seater and she's 27 *L* so at least 26 yrs ago is when I bought it, the casserole dishes were a wedding gift 32 yrs ago

I'd have to do dogs following bugs, Brina is the only dog I know that will run into a table because she's busy following an ant across our deck

Ours is about that age, too--had it when I moved to Eau Claire in '87, but I can't remember where I got it.

Brina is such a character!

9 posts and no suggestions - very nice

HRP - your pic in this thread gave me an idea.

I don't believe we've ever had an eating or drinking thread....

what about pets eating - or pets drinking?

Feel free to suggest any other topic as well and the topic w/the most support in the next 24 becomes this month's challenge.

Thx - marko

Yeah, we were feeling pretty nonproductive yesterday

I could go with eating and drinking--they all gotta do it so everyone can play.

sorry Marko but the heat is frying my brains I can't think of anything

Love the pic of Duffy with her head in the milkglass! Did she ever get stuck in there?

There's a lot of thinkin' and drinkin' going on at your house, klm. The Pack can't believe Gryphon would drink from something as dastardly as a hose!!! Cute pics of all your furbabies. Only where's Kitty?

That's a great pic of Bear, edwina! I'm always amazed how cats, who seem to hate water nearly as much as the Pack does, are willing to get close enough to a running tap to actually drink!

I agree Hazel! Made me chuckle.

If I took Gryphon down to the river, he would drink it dry! I'm surprised he even gave the hose a thought before diving in.

Kitty's still around but she's such a Casper friendly ghost girl and doesn't like anyone sneaking up on her, even with a camera. She much rather make appointments on her terms.

Nope never got stuck ~ that's what them whiskers are for , and she knew when I'd pull out those glasses I'd be drinking milk.

I don't mean to thread jack. yes I do know Hazel, about 3 months afterwards they gave her to a family in Casselman and they had her spayed, her owner thought it a waste when she made such nice pups, he kept the dad, huge yellow lab in a walk up one bedroom apartment, I kept in touch with them for two years till he bought the girlfriend another pup (looked just like brina) which he was going to breed with his lab...........grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr , I quit emailing them at that point and told him in a not so nice email what I thought of them. Brina came from a litter of 8 which he was asking 250 each and then when none sold he sent me an email asking for help, he had to take the pups to the spca when the landlord found out about them, we took Brina, I got in touch with friends, rescue's etc and all the pups found homes.

Not as grim as I was afraid it would be, and I can't say as I blame ya for telling the off. I'm glad you were there for Brina and her littermates!

The problem I'm havin' with this challenge is that the dogs are social drinkers--the Pack crowds around the bowl and all I can see are hairy butts, backs and tails. Can't even see the water bowls! This is harder than I thought it would be.
