Puppy Tales Photo Challenge ~ Spring

Puppy Tales Photo Challenge ~ Spring

It’s well and truly Spring here in Melbourne.

And so far it’s been a glorious Spring – plenty of days full of sunshine, the occasional spring shower and lots of gorgeous colour in spring flowers and green, green grass.

I love these things about Spring, so that has inspired this week’s ‘Spring’ Photo Challenge!

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

This Week’s Photo Challenge Theme: SPRING

What’s you favourite thing about spring? Why not set out this weekend to incorporate that in your photos? It might be the colours of spring or including your favourite spring flowers. Maybe it’s an outing to a gorgeous spring park or garden. Perhaps it’s getting caught out in a spring shower. Maybe it’s a romp or roll in the green spring grass. Or perhaps it’s being able head out for a longer walk as the days get longer.

And, as always, you’re welcome to apply the theme creatively. If you live elsewhere in the world where, it’s not currently Spring then you’re welcome to dig into your photos and find a photo from a previous Spring. If you live in a place that doesn’t have the four seasons (like in the tropics) then applying the theme creatively must just be the option for you! Find somewhere local with flowers, or incorporate them into your photos!

We can’t wait to check out all your gorgeous Spring Doggie photos this week!

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 ‘SPRING’ Photo Inspiration

In these ‘Spring’ inspired photos we have:

Top: Our Border Collie Puppy Summer amidst some spring flowering native plants (sorry, I’m not good with Botany to know exactly what they are!)

Middle: Commander Spock, the Australian Cattle Dog cross, poses with yellow tulips (and mud!); Samoyed puppy Mistletoe brought flowers along for her studio session – how simply divine is she?

Our Japanese Spitz Keiko beautifully shows both Spring Showers and Spring Flowers – during a recent walk we got caught in the rain, but still stopped to pose in front of the beautiful yellow wattle.

Labrador puppy Archie and Australian Shepherd Barkley both look stunning with the red tulips.

Bottom: Border Collie Rosie against a backdrop of spring blossoms.

Sharing your ‘SPRING’ 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_spring 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 dog’s name/s. If there is a great story, or puppy tale, that goes with your photo then 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!
