Dog Photo Challenge ~ Poochy Party

Guess who’s turning 1…..??

It’s our fur baby Summer’s first birthday tomorrow!

We can’t believe how quickly the time has flown by and we have the day planned for of the things she loves most – swimming, hanging with her humans and canine besties and the odd special treat or two!

As we celebrate with Summer, we thought ‘Poochy Party’ would make a fabulous photo challenge!

This Week’s Photo Challenge Theme: POOCHY PARTY

How do you celebrate your dog’s birthday?  Do you have a big party with their canine companions?  Maybe it’s a day filled with doing their favourite things?  Are there gifts involved? Lots of treats?

However you and your dog celebrate, we want to see the photos!  As always, you’re welcome to apply the theme creatively.

Some ‘POOCHY PARTY’ Inspiration

In these inspiration photos we have:

Top: Border Collie Summer played with balloons in anticipation of her birthday party.

Middle: We had our Japanese Spitz Keiko pose for his 2nd birthday – he looks seriously adorable with his birthday hat.  For his 3rd birthday we had a celebration with some of doggy friends.  They all enjoyed the giant birthday cupcake just for dogs, including Jazz and Rosie.  Samoyed pup Mistletoe had a photo session for her first birthday so we had to include a party hat for her!

Bottom: Mochi, another gorgeous Japanese Spitz, had a special cake for her birthday photo session – and invited her favourite toys to join in!

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_party 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!
