Dog Photo Challenge ~ Running Dog

Run, run, run.  

All our dogs LOVE to run.

And it brings such a huge smile to my face watching them.

The expression of joy on their face as they face as fast as they can (and  sometimes faster than their legs can take them in Keiko’s case!), the wind racing past them pushing their coat, the sometimes crazy faces and the flapping ears!

This Week’s Theme: Running Dog!

We can’t wait for you to your running dog with us this week.  

Running photos can be some of the more tricky to capture – definitely not quite as easy as when they are quietly resting or sleeping.  If you want some extra help with capturing great running or other action photos, be sure to check these 7 tips for better action photos of your dog!

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 ‘Running Dog’ Inspiration

Top – Look at the flying ears and huge smile on choccy labrador Rex’s face as he races.

Middle – Gorgeous goldie Bessie, running post swim, big smile and water drops flying. Another water lover is Aussie Shepherd Dizzy and here he’s running through the water after his favourite toy.

Our Keiko racing through the snow as fast as his little legs will take him!

Rosie our border collie running through mud – and loving it!  How adorable are Frank the daschund’s big flying ears as he funs?

Bottom – Kelpie Denzel doing what a working dog does best – running through a paddock.  On this occasion no sheep or cattle to work, but still tonnes of enjoyment to found in just running.
