Puppy Tales Photo Challenge ~ Happy New Year

A huge, joyous, wonderful and happy New Year from us to you & your pack!  

Our first challenge for the year, is perhaps a little belated – we’ve been enjoying some wonderful family time since Christmas.  

But, really of 365 days this year only 9 have passed, so still fitting to be celebrating and sharing our Happy New Years with one another!

(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: HAPPY NEW YEAR

Our ‘Happy New Year’ theme can be used to inspire your photos however literally or liberally as you’d like.  It could, like it did for us, be photos of including our dogs in the New Years celebrations.  

It could be a resolution or goal for 2017 that you’ve set for your dog, or that they’ve inspired for yourself.  

Perhaps it will be how 2017 will be a happy, blessed year for you (we’re sure that will involve your dog in some way!).

We can’t wait to see your photos in our first challenge of the year!

Some ‘HAPPY NEW YEAR’ Inspiration

In our Happy New Year inspiration photos we have:

Top: Summer, our gorgeous border collie girl, posing perfectly to wish everyone a happy new year!

Middle: Keiko giving a cheesy toothy grin in his ‘New Year’ crown – we just love this cheeky little smile when he flashes it at us!

On New Year’s Eve, Summer and Keiko got to try Doggie beer for the the first time – I think from their reaction and how quickly it went down they could easily develop a thirst for beer 😉  This was Summer’s reaction

Bottom: Keiko post dog beer…. just joking!  He poses very quickly for photos and this is seconds after the first was taken!  It does a good job of showing post ‘welcoming in the New Year’ celebrations!

Sharing your 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_newyear 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!
