Puppy Tales Photo Challenge ~ Sleepy Dogs

Sleepy puppies and dogs…. they are so up there in the cuteness stakes!

If you’re anything like me, you can barely stop yourself from squeezing them or playing with their whiskers in all their sweet adorableness.  Plus, if you have a busy or excitable dog then it’s often the quiet and still time that you infrequently get to spent together.

The alternative, though, to disturbing your dog or puppy from their sleep, is to capture that sweetness in photos.  Letting them have their sweet dreams.

(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: SLEEPY DOGS!

I’m quite sure this week’s photo challenge is going to have us all feel that little bit more blissed out, content and relaxed.  There’s just something about a sleeping dog that certainly makes me feel that way and looking at a whole bunch of photos of dogs doing just that – well, that’s sounds paw-some 😀

Take or find your favourite sleepy dog photos for this week.  Anything sleepy, snoozing, yawning, resting, ready for bed, all tuckered out and those crazy uncomfortable (yet oh so funny) sleep positions that we find our puppies and dogs is welcome in this challenge.  And, as always, you’re welcome to apply the theme creatively (ummm, maybe a dog taking a ‘catnap’).

We can’t wait to check out all the sleepy cuteness of your photos this week!

Some ‘SLEEPY DOGS’ Inspiration

In these ‘Sleepy Dogs’ inspired photos we have:

Top: All tuckered out sleepy puppies – Bella, Lilly & Rosie

Middle: Border Collie Summer all tucked up and ready for snoozy time; Puppy Keiko – don’t you just love how pups and dogs rub their noses when they are tired.

Grown up Japanese Spitz Keiko – he doesn’t mind the opportunity to snuggle into the human bed!

German Shepherd Puppy Axel – feel asleep mid play and that meant this somewhat uncomfortable looking sleep spot!  Golden Retriever Bailey settles into to have a snooze on the couch with her human.

Bottom: Border Collie Summer chooses a favourite toy as her pillow for a mid afternoon sleep.

Sharing your ‘SLEEPY DOGS’ 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_sleepy 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!
