Dog Photo Challenge ~ Purple

Puppy Tales Photo Challenge ~ Purple

Did you know that Purple’s rarity in nature and the expense of creating the colour, has given purple a supernatural aura for centuries.

That’s some random trivia for you around the colour purple…. What does it have to do with dog’s you may be wondering. Well…. it’s the colour theme for this week’s dog photo challenge!

Purple combines the calm stability of blue and the fierce energy of red. The colour purple is often associated with royalty, nobility, luxury, power, and ambition.

Purple also represents meanings of wealth, extravagance, creativity, wisdom, dignity, grandeur, devotion, peace, pride, mystery, independence, and magic.

This week our dog photo challenge is for sharing your dog and the colour ‘PURPLE’.

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

This Week’s Theme: PURPLE!

Now before you think this colour doesn’t apply to dogs…. we’ve met a couple of poodles with purple coloured coats!  And of course there is a dog breed that have purple coloured tongues – the Chow Chow!  The Shar Pei also often shares this trait!  Of course, if you have a dog with a purple coat or tongue, you’re welcome to (and can very easily) participate in this week’s challenge.

If not, there’s still many ways to join the fun.  It means you’ll be looking to backgrounds, scenes, props, accessories and the natural environment to add the colour purple to your dog photos for the photo challenge this week.  Gorgeous purple flowers, a cute purple toy for your dog or or a purple painted wall or bedspread.  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.  Maybe something along the lines of being ‘tickled pink’ or ‘pink elephants’.

As always you’re welcome to apply the theme creatively if you’d like!

Don’t forget to also share this weeks theme or tag your friends who will love to play along!

Some ‘PURPLE’ Inspiration

Want some inspiration? Here’s some adorable dogs with some purple inspiration!

Top: Gorgeous Shar Pei Loki – he has a slightly purple tongue in spots and the purple background was a beautiful match for his colour.

Middle: Our dogs Keiko, Summer and Rosie posing amongst purple – Keiko sitting amongst purple Jacaranda blossoms, Rosie amongst purple daisy like followers and Summer with her purple Rhino teddies.  Cavoodle Buddy who perfectly suits his purple collar & lead.

Bottom: Baymax is a Chow Chow x Samoyed and he has the tell tale purple tongue of the Chow Chow!  What a spunky boy he is!

Sharing your ‘PURPLE’ 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_purple 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, please don’t forget to include your dogs name/s. If there’s a little story 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!
