Dog Photo Challenge ~ Bedtime

Puppy Tales Photo Challenge ~ Bedtime


That’s so often what we think and say whenever we see an adorable dog or a cute puppy all snoozie or snuggled in at bedtime.

And as luck would have it, many dogs have some especially sweet or cheeky bedtime, settling down, routines.

All of these things makes for gorgeous photos.  And that’s all we need to set a photo challenge ?

(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: BEDTIME

This week we want to see your dog or puppy at bedtime, or getting ready for bedtime.  That might be all snuggled up in their bed or on your bed.  It could be the very cheeky things they do when they are too tired and fighting it.  It might be dressed in their doggie jammies, ready for bed.

And, as always, you’re welcome to apply the theme creatively.  

We can’t wait to see your bedtime photos this week.

Some ‘BEDTIME’ Inspiration

In these ‘orange’ inspired photos we have:

Top: Keiko, our Japanese Spitz, as a tiny puppy snuggling in for a snooze – he loved his cuddly toy at this age and it went everywhere with him – including to bed.

Middle: Rosie, our Border Collie, makes us laugh – if its tiny bed she will curl up tight to make sure she fits.  This was her puppy bed but we could only bear to take it away from her when it feel apart.  Even with a newer and bigger bed this was still the one she sleep in. 

Keiko again!  We’ve no idea how he did but he put himself to bed in his travel box when we were visiting, using the rug as a blanket.  Such a clever pup.

Summer, was and still is, a cheeky puppy.  She definitely gave it her all to fight of sleep – she didn’t want to miss a thing.  When she was an overtired pup she’d go a bit cheeky crazy and this is one such time.

Summer’s first week, when she was snoozing away the day in her crate. And Rosie on a more appropriate sized bed…. only thing is, she always sleeps half off it.  Funny that a small bed ‘fits’ and a big bed is too small.

Bottom: Puppies!!  These adorable puggle puppies are Charlie and Lola.

Sharing your ‘BEDTIME’ 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_bedtime 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!
