Dog Photo Challenge ~ Silly Dog
Silly has a few meanings, but when it comes to our dogs, we think it is best used as:
“To be funny in a cute way”
And dogs have an uncanny way of being silly. Perhaps they know when we need the entertainment or distraction from everything else.
As I looked through photos from the past year, and came across quite a few silly outtakes – I realised it would be a great photo challenge theme!
(If you’re not familiar with the Dog Photo Challenges, there’s some extra info at the bottom of the post).
This Week’s Theme: Silly Dog
Regardless of how adorable they are most of the time – there’s always that moment with a dog where the silly takes over!
Whether it’s a matter of timing, some props or accessories that have been included, a coincidence, a crazy expression or some other quirky happening, the silly photos of can be so smile-inducing or entertaining!
We can’t wait to see your photos this week! Don’t forget to also share the theme with or tag your dog loving friends who would love to join in!
Our ‘Silly Dog’ Inspiration
Check out the inspiration we’ve gathered for the challenge this week!
Top: I met and photographed this sweet rescue baby at Lort Smith – this expression as he played with his new toy has me in stitches!
Middle: I had the wonderful pleasure of photographing Bella in Bright for our Fall Dog Sessions – and this leaf fell into the frame at the perfect time!
A young Summer modelling for me! I actually bought this wig for myself for a fancy dress party but thought on this day I’d see how Summer went with it! Still cracks me up to look at the photos.
One of those ‘great timing’ photos! Keiko and Summer did this themselves – it’s a border collie x Japanese spitz….. x dahschund 😉
Keiko and his ‘I love rolling in the grass’ crazy face. Summer and yet another wig – seems she’s quite the fashionista on occasion!
Bottom: Sweet Alfie – and his ‘will you rub my belly’ silly/adorable face!
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_silly 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!
