Dog Photo Challenge ~ Now & Then

Puppyhood, while so adorable, is over way too quick! 

It’s definitely wonderful to capture a dog’s growth from Puppy to Adult.  And is just fun to compare the ‘Now’ with the ‘Then’…. awwww!

So we thought for this week’s photo challenge it would be fabulous to see a ‘Now & Then’ for your best buddy!  

A little note – we’re changing things up, just ever so slightly, with the Photo Challenges!  We’ll now post the themes on Monday for the week. You can upload throughout the week and tag your photos on instagram!

This Week’s Theme: Now & Then

Did your pup grow into their ears?  Or maybe it was their paws.

Did they change as they grew from puppy to adult?  Maybe they’re a gorgeous chocolate lab who now has a even more soulful eyes and a very distinguished grey muzzle!

It’s always fascinating to see how a dog grows from teeny tiny puppy to adult.  And from adult to senior.  I must admit I am a fan of the gangly in between stage as well!  You know, where there legs are a little bit long!  Whichever stages you have photos of your dog, we can’t wait to see how they’ve changed in this week’s photo challenge.’

To participate you can either share or tag separate photos or use an app to make a little collage – either is fine!

Don’t forget to also share the theme with or tag your dog loving friends who would love to join in!

Our ‘Now & Then’ Inspiration

Want some inspiration? 

We have ‘Now and Then’ photos of Brax the French Bulldog, our Rosie-girl, Keiko & Summer, Newfoundland Morpheus and Samoyed Mistletoe.

Sweetie Morpheus has still got some growing to do yet – we can’t wait to see him fully grown!

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_nowthen 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!
