Puppy Tales Photo Challenge ~ Flowers

Flowers – they’re pretty and they’re colourful.

Whether they are real, props or accessories, flowers make a beautiful addition for some fun and different photos of your dog.

So for this week’s challenge, we’re going to stop and photograph the flowers with our best buddies (you’re also welcome to smell the flowers while you’re there!)

(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: FLOWERS!

Flowers in nature can be found all around!  And, what’s more, there’s lots of gorgeous floral accessories for you dog.  Here’s a few different ideas for incorporating flowers in photos with your dog:

  • Your dog running through a field or paddock of wildflowers
  • Floating rose petals
  • Make a daisy chain or floral crown for your dog
  • Your buddy stopping to sniff flowers
  • Use a flowering bush or tree in the background of your photo
  • Floral dog accessories like a collar or bandana
  • Head out on a walk in pretty local flower garden

We can’t wait to check out the fun and prettiness of your beautiful dog and flower photos.

Please ensure that you don’t allow your dog to eat flowers and be very cautious when (or avoid) placing them near any flowers that may be toxic to them.  The ASPCA has a comprehensive list of plants that are toxic to your pets – it’s well worth checking out and bookmarking.  

Some ‘FLOWERS’ Inspiration

In these photos we have:

Sharing your ‘FLOWERS’ 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_flowers 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!
