October 2011 - Pets.ca photo challenge - Halloween OR Thanksgiving

Hi members!

It's Oct 3 and no challenge idea yet (sorry just got back from travel, but in the future any member can start this thread if they want to.)

So anyone got ideas this month?

Hmmm what about Grooming? (This could include pics of baths, nail clipping, brushing, self grooming etc.)

Feel free to support this idea or suggest another, and the theme w/the most support in the next 12-24 hours becomes October's challenge.

Thx! Marko

being there are two holidays we could pick a theme from either or both? Halloween and or thanksgiving, a pic could show why we are thankful to have them? to cuddle with, to exercise us, keep us company etc? I like the grooming one too, but I only decorate her and brush her *L*.

I love the "thankful" idea!!! I know I could post a before and after with Nookie. One in his costume last year looking dejected and the next without, showing how thankful he is that mom didn't make him stay in it
I know that isn't the thankful you're talking about, but hey... it could work!

Just my , I got this idea from the TJT, how about bad hair days? Buddy has lots of those, 5 minutes after being bathed and groomed he looks like he just got oout of bed. patti

A Fall theme? leaves? Halloween? Thanksgiving? something your thankful for?

Seems like Halloween/Thanksgiving has the most support so that will be the theme for this month. Love the bad hair day idea for next month tho.

Merging suggestion posts now.
Thx - marko

Melinda, Brina is SO darn cute
The second pic in the first post... if looks could kill!!
And I just LOVE the second pic in the second post... looks like a very comfy bed, indeed!!

Marty, that pic is just adorable!! I had to look twice

I have posted this pic of Nookie before, but I love it
He looks so dejected haha, poor little humilated baby! But he was such a cute shark, even if we couldn't fasten the costume lol. His little belly was so bloated. The costume is an XXL and only went little more than half way around him

Great pictures everyone.

I'm thankful that the little one in the bale of hay isn't mine (or real at that) but the the 2 little creepers in the door way, are!

I love that pic of Winston, Cindy! Superdawg! About to fly off to protect the World from Evil! He was such an exceptional boy!

Love that shot of the creepers, DOG!!

This Ember very thankful to be able to get out in the woods, and enjoying every minute of it! (He's blurred with the speed of his passage! ) The orange vest sort of qualifies as a Halloween costume, too, doesn't it?
