    Where would life be without them? Those faithful companions that ask so little of us, well maybe the odd walk or a visit to the doggy park to play with their friends, or perhaps just a lap to sleep upon.

    This week I'd love to see your pets (or other peoples), whether they be in action or at rest, show me your best photographs of pets, no matter what type they are. Let their personalities shine!

    Here's one of my many attempts.

    [​IMG]


    ◦ The photographs must be your own work.

    ◦ Be creative and have fun.

    ◦ You may only submit one photo per contest.

    ◦ Please do not comment on photos until after the judging has taken place.

    ◦ The contest runs for one week, starting NOW!

    ◦ At the end of the week, The Judge (last week's Winner) will choose a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place photo, providing as much feedback as possible.

    ◦ The 1st place Winner will start a new thread with the topic/theme of their choice, and act as the Judge for that contest. (Winner has 48 hours to create new theme, after that it defers to 2nd place).

    OK, Here you go. Meet Olaf - yes named after the damn snowman in Frozen!

    He is remarkable in that despite watching him like a hawk he can still slope off and pee on something he shouldn't. He could find a way to get into trouble in an empty room! He is Gran's dog and we all love him to bits...

    Here is Duncan. He's a big cat at 22 pounds. Very vocal (I think he ate a Siamese cat).. He's always looking for food :) And most of all he's very photogenic :)

    Ziva, our Red Heeler. She hates the snow, but went out in it with me anyway.

    Wow this competition has gone to the dogs!
    I live in a pet free house. But my wife feeds the family of sparrows that live in our garden every day.
