Dog Photo Challenge ~ Aussie, Aussie, Aussie

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie!

Oi, Oi, Oi!

That’s the chant that we’ll be hearing a lot tomorrow!  For it’s Australia Day for us.

We LOVE Australia and are fortunate to call it home.  In this week’s photo challenge we’re going to celebrate being Australian!  And if you’re not an Aussie, you’re welcome to celebrate the awesome that is Australia 🙂

This Week’s Theme: Aussie, Aussie, Aussie

Did you know that Australia is as wide as the distance between London to Moscow? That Australia was the 2nd country in the world to allow women to vote (after New Zealand)? Or that the world’s oldest fossil which is about 3.4 billion years old, was found here?  These are among the cool things about this country.

And while everything in Australia isn’t always perfect, but I am a proud Australia and fortunate to have been born in a country like this. 

While it might seem like this is a theme most suited for those here in the land down under (or Aussie expats celebrating around the world), it’s certainly not just for us!  If you happen to live elsewhere, or are looking for additional ideas for the challenge, here’s some suggestions for joining in with this one:

  • Go green & gold – the National colours of Australia!
  • Have an Aussie Dog?  An Australian Shepherd, Australia Cattle Dog, Australian Terrier or one of the other breeds with ‘Australia’ in the breed name?  You’ve got an easy option this photo challenge!
  • Include something specifically or deliciously (or stereotypically) Australian – Vegemite, Boomerang, Laminations, Nicole Kidman or Hugh Jackman ;), thongs (for your feet!), Ugg boots, the Southern Cross or timtams!
  • If you’ve visited, tell us what you loved most about Australia.  If you’ve not visited, tell us why you’d love to visit one day (accompanying a photo of your dog of course!)
  • Theme your dog as a bushman, swagman, bushranger, convict, surf lifesaver or any other Australian historical character!
  • Include anything else Australian, representing Australia or showing Australia in a photo with your dog that you can think of!

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!

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_aussie 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!
