Puppy Tales Photo Challenge ~ Winter

Puppy Tales Photo Challenge ~ Winter Time


We’ve all felt it here in Melbourne (and Australia!) that Winter is truly with us!

It’s been cold, wet and even snowing in many places that normally experience snow.

So, we think it must be time for a winter inspired dog photo challenge this weekend.

(If you’re not familiar with the Dog Photo Challenges, there’s some extra info at the bottom of the post).

This Week’s Theme: WINTER TIME!

Regardless of whether you love winter or not…. you still have to head out for walking or other activities with your dog.  We find that taking our camera and grabbing some photos with the dogs, certainly helps make being out in the cold more fun.  What’s more, the snow, fog, later sunrise, early sunset, rain and puddle that can be found in winter make for some great atmospheric or fun photos!

We can’t wait to check out your adorable dogs out and about experiencing winter.

Some ‘WINTER TIME’ Inspiration

This week our inspiration is all our own dogs (couldn’t be calling the cute dog models I photograph naughty, could I?).  In these photos we have:

Top: Border Collie Summer had her first experience of the snow (and she loved it!)

Middle: Japanese Spitz Keiko out and about for his walkies on a foggy winter morning.

Dalmatian April racing through the snow; Siberian Husky Duke showing off his cool high five trick in the snow.

Bottom: Siberian Husky Bear looking magnificent atop a snow covered mountain!

Sharing your ‘WINTER TIME’ Photos

Meeting and hearing all about your dogs and the love you have for them makes our day! 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_winter 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! Especially if you’re sending us something creative and we may not immediately ‘get’ how your photo fits the theme!

What are the Dog Photo Challenges?

We know you guys, our Puppy Tales friends, love to share photos of your gorgeous dogs! Our social media is filled with them daily and we receive lots via message and email too. We LOVE to see them! And we want to share our favourites….. each week the best will be shared on our Puppy Tales Facebook Timeline Cover! It needs to be updated frequently and we couldn’t think of anything better than sharing your cute Dog or 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 weekend 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 throughout the year, so the opportunity to share your dog photos often will be sure to come up frequently! Don’t forget to come back to check for the new themes each week!

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 will also share some of the photos on Puppy Tales instagram!

    I would like to share my baby Princess Eaden at our winter time here in the United States.

    • Oh my gosh what a cutie! Does she have one blue and one green eye?

      • Lisa Minervini

        Thank you so much! She is our little princess. She has one blue eye and (depending on her mood) her other eye, can be green, amber or even hazel.
