Dog 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.

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!
