Dog Photo Challenge ~ Shake!

Does a dog shake photo just make you giggle?

They do me!

Every dog has a different shake style and it’s that hair that’s flying everything, the crazy legs or the wacky expressions on the dog’s face that makes every shake photo unique and paw-some!

This Week’s Photo Challenge Theme: SHAKE

This time of year in Australia, so many of us hit the beaches with our dogs.  It’s the weather for it and the longer days give us more time in the evenings – perfect for a beach romp!  But you know what happens after a dogs been for a swim…. the shake it off!  Inspired by some recent shake photos of our pack, this week’s photo theme is ‘Shake’!

You’re welcome to apply this theme creatively or imaginatively!  And your dog doesn’t have to be wet or giving a post swim shake – they could simply be shaking out their coat!

Some ‘SHAKE’ Inspiration

In these inspiration photos we have:

Top: Border Collie Rosie giving us a big shake – is it just me or does it look like she’s smiling?

Middle: Border Collie Cross Billy really enjoyed shaking off the water and getting everyone around him wet! And it’s crazy face Liz the greyhound post swim.

Our Summer giving a big shake after she fetched the ball.  I love the patterns the water droplets can make.

It’s Greyhound Betty and Japanese Spitz Keiko showing off their shake style.

Bottom: Hudson the Kerry Blue Terrier, showing that you don’t need to be post swim or wet to shake it off!
