Puppy Tales Photo Challenge ~ Big Smile

Doggie smiles!  

Nothing brightens the day more than a smiling pooch.

What kind of smile does your dog have?  

A cheeky grin, a goofy smile,  a toothy smirk or simply an adoring melt-your-heart smile?

Whichever it is, in this week’s challenge we want to your dogs BIG version of that smile.

(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: BIG Smile!

Share with us your dog’s smile.  It’s a pretty easy one to photograph.  Think of what makes your dog happy or excited.  Make some time to do that with them and have your camera close at hand.  When you pause from the fun for a moment, see if they are flashing you a big smile!  And if so, capture it.  

Of course, you can use it for joining the fun of our photo challenges, but it will also be a photo of your dog that you are going to want to cherish.

Like every week, you’re welcome to apply the theme creatively.  And don’t forget to also share the theme with your friends who you think would love to play along!

Some ‘BIG Smile’ Inspiration

Middle – Border Collie duo – Elsa and Summer – each with their adorable, yet ever so slightly cheeky, smiles.

Our Japanese Spitz Keiko with a toothy grin – cracks me up when he does this!

It’s Rosie the Border with a more usual poochy grin, and Tahn the Weimaraner, who gives some of the biggest smiles I’ve seen on a dog.

Bottom – Beautiful Mabe, the Australian Kelpie, has plenty to smile about – she just loves the outdoors and being around her people!

Sharing your ‘BIG Smile’ Photos

Can’t wait to the photos of the adventures you’ve had with your dog/s in this week’s challenge!

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_bigsmile 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!
