Dog Photo Challenge ~ Christmas is Coming

by Kerry on December 5, 2014

Border Collie ready and waiting for Christmas

We must admit – we love Christmas! And we LOVE sharing Christmas with Keiko – making him part of the festivities, taking him to all the Christmas events that we can & dressing him in something adorably Christmassy!

AND this week we have Christmas gifts to give to give to our 3 favourite photos! Read on to see the extra awesome bonus this week for the dogs selected.

If you’re not yet familiar with the Dog Photo Challenges then there are details at the bottom of the post.


This week we want to see your ‘CHRISTMAS IS COMING’ dog photos! Does your dog help or hinder with putting up Christmas decorations? Does your dogs have some special Christmas attire, outfit or accessories? What do you think your dog loves most about Christmas? What Christmas goodies did your dog receive last year? Let’s start the celebrations of Christmas with our dogs!

Don’t forget to also share the theme with or tag your friends who will love to join in!

Some ‘CHRISTMAS IS COMING’ Inspiration

Want some inspiration? Here’s some gorgeous CHRISTMAS IS COMING dog photos to help put you in the mood for capturing your dog this Christmas.

Inspiration for the Puppy Tales 'Christmas is Coming' Photo Challenge

We can’t wait to see and share your CHRISTMAS IS COMING photos.


There’s lots of ways to share your photos for this weeks challenge:

  • On Facebook – Post your photo under the theme post when it appears on Facebook.
  • On Instagram – Tag your photos that fit the theme with #pt_christmas so we can find them!
  • In the Comments – Share your photo in the comments below. If you have photos on other photo sharing sites (like 500px or Flickr) then feel free to leave a link to your photo in the comments.

However you share, don’t forget to include your dogs name/s. If there is a great story, or puppy tale, that goes with your photo them we’d also love to hear it! Meeting and hearing all about your dogs and the love you have for them makes our day!

The ‘CHRISTMAS IS COMING’ Favourite Photos

In addition to appearing on the Puppy Tales timeline, this week we’re going to give a little extra Christmas cheer to the 3 dogs we select! It’s an adorable Santa Hat for your dog!

What are the Dog Photo Challenges?

We know you guys, our Puppy Tales friends, love to share photos of your gorgeous dogs! Our Facebook page is filled with them daily and we receive lots on email too. We LOVE to see them! We also want to share our favourites….. each week the best on our Puppy Tales Facebook Timeline Cover! It needs to be updated and we couldn’t think of anything better than sharing your Puppy Tales!

So we developed the simple idea of a weekly challenge allowing you to share your best dog photos! And the best bit is that it gives you an extra reason to hang out with your dogs over the week and to be taking more photos of them. If you already have photos that match the theme, then you’re welcome to share those too. There will be many themes in the coming weeks, so the opportunity to enter your dog for a particular week will be sure to come up!

Each Friday we will post a photo challenge theme for the week. You can upload over the weekend and the following Tuesday we will pick our favourites to update the Puppy Tales Facebook page with! We may even share a couple on Puppy Tales Instagram!
