December 2011 - Pets.ca photo challenge - Pets and the Holidays

Anyone got ideas for December's photo challenge?
thx! M

Something Christmas!! Hahah.

We're sort of in between winter fun and summer sun here--not enough snow to have a good game of bury your packmate and too cold to sit and bask on the deck. So how about just a "dreaming of summer" challenge--could post pics of a pet napping in a sunbeam, or just napping...or use some older pics of summer fun to illustrate what they're dreamin' about. (LOL Yes, ulterior motive. I have some pics like that heheh)

I like "Dreaming", sleeping with a "dream caption". I know sleeping has been done, but they can be intense dream like expressions....

another idea or two and we'll have a majority

Pets with "Bows and Ribbons" for Christmas.........everyone is lost for ideas!!

No clear majority here so I'll make the call.

Pets and the Holidays.

Ok then merging posts now - who will go first?

Serena, Connor and Keely are too cute in those little hoodies, grumpy or not!!

Marko, I LOVE the pics of Baci and Twiggy!! Carmy takes very nice pictures!!

A few pics of Thorin and Nookie!! I got them each the cutest outfits, reindeer and santa suit, but trying to get them to stay in em long enough to get photos was almost impossible lol. These are the best I could do!!

Baci looks sort grinchy, Marko...I think He is not amused... Such cute pics of the kitties!

Thorin and Nanook look mahhh-velous, dahlink! Such handsome dudes. Is Thorin singing Christmas carols in that second to last shot, Robyn?

I love those holiday shots, too, DOG! Gryphon looks so small next to Bailey and so big next to Mollie!
