Alrighty, then, folks! This week's theme is DIRTY DOGS!!!!

We all know Cavs aren't really as prissy as they look (mostly), so let's show them how down and dirty they can really get!! Mud, grass, sand, water, flour, shredded paper, or whatever it is your dog has gotten to make him or herself SUPER DIRTY!!


So, Find your best Dirty Dog picture and post here!

We got a little off on the days, so Submit entries until Tuesday night, then we'll have voting open for a couple days.

ENTRIES ARE NOW OPEN!!!!

Yay! I have one for this theme!!

Woo-ee, look at that filthy belly!! This was after Corgan's first trip to the stream near our house where we let him get in the stream. He had a BLAST, and after his bath ;) he slept the whole evening!!

Now that is one dirty dog! Anyone know whatever happened to Ruth? Her avatar picture always cracked me up...

Since I don't have any dirty dog pictures and the guys just got bathed yesterday we won't be making an entry in this one. If they were due for a bath I would let them run out and get dirty....but they are so pretty and clean...no way.

Yeah, this means I can just look at everyone else's and get my kicks that way!

Brodie had the best time at the beach this summer! He loved getting wet and sandy. He even enjoyed riding in the basket on the front of the bike. What a trooper!!! :dogwlk:

She looks so innocent, it just makes me giggle...

That's too funny Deb! If I close my eyes and can't see it...it must not be there! I had a cat who used to stick her front half under the bed. We used to tease about hiding. :D If she couldn't see us then surely we couldn't see her.

i love this theme and the photos so far. i dont have any dirty dog photos either, and unless i get a chance at one by Tuesday, i'm not going to have an entry, but it's still fun. Great idea!

the only place zack can get dirty is at one of the dog parks, where the doggie water fountain is broken and unless people turn it off, it floods, and it is quite the mudbath. zack has gotten very dirty there, but mostly the people are careful to keep it from flooding, and i've started only going to the other larger park for a long time. i'm going to take him to the mud bath park tomorrow though, just in case. Or maybe I could on purpose turn the fountain on and cause a big flood, for art's sake. :badgrin: icon_whistling

kendall, you said submit entries until Tuesday night. Isn't tomorrow Sunday? (i get confused, but since this is my three day weekend, i'm pretty on top of what day it is today--i KNOW i have two more days off. at least i hope so.) anyway, inquiring minds want to know--pleeze clarify.

Debbie, I love this pic. Is he 'hiding' because he has dirty paws or because he's guilty of murdering one of his stuffed toys? I spy lots of filling on the floor around him :lol:

Charleen
8th October 2006, 12:48 PM
Donna, you should be a detective. I was so enthralled with his face, that I didn't look at the rest of the photograph until I read your question. So Debbie, is there a dead stuffed animal just outside the picture?

Probably both..tho he had just dug a hole outside so that was the main reason for hiding..he destuffs toys on a regular basis so doubt he has little remorse for the stuffing around

Maxxs_Mummy
8th October 2006, 06:02 PM
:lol: :lol: :lol: Sounds just like my two. We've now got a great system going. One of them kills the toy and destuffs it and the other will run away with the stuffing so that I can't get it. They have twigged that I can't go in two directions at once :lol: :lol: :lol:

This one isn't actually dirty, but she was doing 'headplants' in the snow! And it did take a long while to clean her up and dry her off when she came inside. :lol:

wow, cathy, India looks hauntingly beautiful in that picure, her expression..

I haven't seen nicki's photos yet because suddenly my broadband has gone out (new TimeWarner ISP :( ) and i'm on my dialup account this morning. For some reason, nicki's photos are loading extremely slowly, though all the other photos on the page have loaded. I get just the tops of the dogs' heads, which took a long time to get that, but i have to leave the computer and have breakfast and get to work, so maybe by the time i finish yoga, the photos will be visible...

:x :crash: :swear: :crash:

ok, about 3 minutes later--still just the top of dogs heads but can see rupert's eyes and nose.

i'm wondering if dial up is this slow for everyone or if it's just my problem. al the other photos loaded ok, just not nicki's--they are still gradually unfolding, but i mean GRADUALLY, like i've been waiting at least 5 minutes now.... arrrghhhh.... ok, i'll come back later.

judy
10th October 2006, 07:59 PM
woowoo broadband is back up, i don't know for how long but it's great. all of nicki's photos came right up immediately. very nice shots, tedbear is gorgeous. fillipa is a great entry! I can see why you had a hard time choosing. mister coal face is a strong competitor too. i had such a hard time with the silliest ears, i had one other photo i was torn between, and even if i couldn't enter it, i still wanted to share it with everyone.

reminds me of a batmobile coming in for a landing :lol:

Oh that's brilliant Judy, a great shot.

Yes it's hard to choose sometimes...Maybe we should do a separate thread in the gallery each time for the shots we decided not to enter?


Cathy, I just love that one of India, it's stunning. She's so beautiful anyway, and looks really precious covered in snow.


Thanks everyone for the kind comments...I'm afraid photography is a bit of an obsession in this house - 2nd only to the dogs :D

:lol: I have several ferocious looking pics of zack when he's playing with other dogs, he looks quite vicious. when i'm watching them play, i don't see it, but the camera catches him looking like a fiend.

In that photo, the dog he was playing with was much bigger, a 50 pound 6 month old part lab puppy named Reno, and Reno started the whole thing, he really liked Zack and started playing with him, it was the first time i've ever seen Reno at the park. The owner approached me immediately, Tom (and Diedre) and he said "Just tell me if you want me to restrain my dog," he said Reno was just a puppy and hadn't learned his own strength, the owner was concerned Reno might accidentally hurt Zack, but i was watching and Reno was definitely being gentle, he did know how to curtail his roughness and bites, puppies do learn this pretty young if they aren't removed from their siblings and mom too early. I told them it looked fine, i was happy to see Zack have a playmate. They played for a long time and had a great time.

Cecily, i just love your new avatar. Well done!
