Dog Photo Challenge ~ Orange

by Kerry on April 11, 2016

This week’s photo challenge is all about including the colour orange!  

It’s the colour of joy, warmth, enthusiasm, change and, of course, autumn.  

It’s a great natural outdoorsy colour, a popular one for dog toys & accessories, and a great vibrant colour to include in photos with your best friend.

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

This Week’s Theme: ORANGE

The colour orange radiates warmth and happiness.  It combines the physical energy of red with the cheerfulness of yellow.  Now doesn’t that sound fitting for many dogs – energetic and cheerful!  

If you have a dog with an orange coloured coat (or tan!) that makes it pretty easy to participate.  

If your dog is a different colour though you can still join the fun!  Find a orange background – a lawn covered with fallen leaves or a painted wall for example.  Or perhaps incorporate some orange toys, props or accessories – a nice bow tie, a ball used for fetch or their favourite teddy bear!

These are just a few ideas and we’re sure you will think of many more.  And, as always, you’re welcome to apply the theme creatively.  We can’t wait to see your orange inspired photos this week.

Some ‘ORANGE’ Inspiration

In these ‘orange’ inspired photos we have:

Top: Our border collie Summer when she was a puppy visited a redwood forest on her first holiday away.  Here she is amongst the beautiful orange foliage.  

Middle: Japanese Spitz Keiko and Siberian Husky Bowie are gorgeous amongst the fallen orange leaves of autumn.

Golden Retriever Indi has a gorgeous golden orange coat.  Her smile is gorgeous too!

Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Lemmie and Hungarian Viszla Safi both have gorgeous orange coats.

Bottom: Photographed Border Collie Rosie in front of this incredible wood wall that we found – it was just new so the cut wood was a beautiful orange-brown!

Sharing your ‘ORANGE’ 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_orange 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!

On Mondays we will post a photo challenge theme for the week. You can upload throughout the week, tag your photos on instagram 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!
