View Full Version : Calendar Pictures - What month is your dog?

9th October 2006, 10:46 PM
Please post pictures of your pups associated with a particular month...Lani, that pumpkin one would be wonderful for October!

We are planning to take the pups to the beach this weekend with a two foot Xmas tree to get our Christmas card pictures...I will post next week.

In the mean time - I wonder if we can create a whole calendar?

9th October 2006, 11:01 PM
Here's Lucky's October pic. He'd be sooo honored if he was chosen to represent his breed for October and also donate some money to help the rescue Cavs at the same time.



I hope we can get a whole calendar. That would be such a great project for such a great cause.

9th October 2006, 11:09 PM
This was SiânE christmas photo from a couple of years ago. I sent it out to all my email addresses as a christmas email.


10th October 2006, 12:34 AM
Don't know which month this would be, but this is my very favorite picture of Kosmo. I love it ;)


This is such a great idea I really hope we can do something with it! :)

10th October 2006, 04:49 AM
Kosmo- I think your photo is January or July - those poms look like fireworks to me!

10th October 2006, 10:40 AM
Merlin - December (he's actually a valentine baby though)

10th October 2006, 12:54 PM
Here is 4th of July - Lucky Luke

10th October 2006, 12:56 PM
Here is Pippin in the summer.

Loving the photo of Fjalar for December or January.

You're quite right there Brid!

Sunna - you have such good photo skills! cl*p

10th October 2006, 06:45 PM
This is a pic of my little sister loading my dishwasher after a dinner party - It was Arthur's first weekend home and he was already learning bad habits from his brother and father. The "treat" they are getting is not allowed when mom is around...but when I got over being a little mad this really is cute.

Maybe US Thanksgiving :D icon_whistling


10th October 2006, 08:41 PM

Fjalar in the winter :flwr:

This looks like a movie cover where the story line is something like, a brave dog about to set out on a dangerous and noble journey.
That's a great picture!!!

10th October 2006, 08:41 PM
Loving the photo of Fjalar for December or January.

You're quite right there Brid!

Sunna - you have such good photo skills! cl*p

Oh, thank you to you both :flwr: icon_blshing

10th October 2006, 08:50 PM
Oh my goddness, this pic of Fjalar is just stunning! Sunna, you make my jeoles! I wanna have such a good photos! :p

11th October 2006, 02:54 AM
With all the leaves, perhaps October?!

11th October 2006, 11:18 AM
:) i love all the photos but the one that catches my eye more is the winter one of fjalar its lovely

11th October 2006, 11:32 AM

When we have photo's for each month - we'll have to put a poll up like the themes I think because even now there are sooo many gorgeous pics that I think we'll have more than enough pics for several years! :lol:

11th October 2006, 02:38 PM

I agree...I would say lets keeip collecting photos for a week or two and then we can set up a poll. I would think if can get the pics decided by month end we would be able to get the calendar our for holiday gifts, etc?

What do you think?

11th October 2006, 03:55 PM
Cinder would be thrilled to stomp out any fires caused by New Year's or Thanksgiving celebrations (perhaps January or November?!) :D


11th October 2006, 04:40 PM
Maybe Cinder can put out summer forest fires!!!

11th October 2006, 06:11 PM
Perhaps we could have a caption to the winning pictures as well? It would make a lovely gift especially as it will come from those that are mad about Cavalier and not just some money making company who put cutes pics out to pull your heartstrings - this will have meaning ( to at least 12 of us this year!)

11th October 2006, 07:18 PM
Oh - I should have mentioned...

On Shutterfly we can also choose one of the twleve photos to be the cover picture....

I would guess Fjalar is in the lead on that one...but we will have to add that when we set up the poll for pictures!

I think the captions are a great idea...if shutterfly can't do that I bet I can figure out how to add them to the actual picture.

11th October 2006, 07:52 PM
I think Andrea has a lot of other lovely Iceland pictures too that could be in the lead for the cover too! The pic that she posted a few days ago of the Ruby standing majestically on the rock with the bright blue sky behind him is just breathtaking.

Here's the link to that post as a reminder ... http://www.cavaliertalk.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=4070

11th October 2006, 09:03 PM
This picture is my all time favourite of Darby


11th October 2006, 10:49 PM
that's it Linda! I'm coming over and taking Darby!! :badgrin: :badgrin: :)

12th October 2006, 02:18 AM
This is my avatar of Sabrina. I took it in August but not sure if thats the month it fits. Can we post mor e than one?

Maybe my Willow could be the March St. Patrick's Day puppy with those green paws! :)



Coco's mom
13th October 2006, 03:23 PM
aww! that's so cute!! is that from the grass? did it wash out easily!!?? :yikes

13th October 2006, 03:59 PM
Yep, the lawn had just gotten mowed, and she went tearing around the backyard. Grass stains all around. She did have to get a mini-bath of just her feet, but it cleaned off pretty easily.

13th October 2006, 09:12 PM
Ok, we could do one calendar with just Sunna, Andrea and Nicki's awesome breath taking photose and another calendar with all the other dogs. I would buy them all. Better yet, we could do a 365 day calendar with all the great photos over the last year on this board alone!

What gorgeous dogs they all are.

This is one of Jane B's photos this year and I think it was one of my all time favorites (along with ALL the Iceland pixs):


13th October 2006, 10:02 PM

yes, JaneB, You don't have a choice.. we're using your picture!!! :D

I LOVE that picture too!!! It's so funny :P

13th October 2006, 10:14 PM


13th October 2006, 10:39 PM
OOooh, that Newspaper photos is TOOO cute!

13th October 2006, 10:55 PM
the one of willow with the grassy paws inspired me to post this one of Aggie! It was on St. Patricks day this year, and we stuck a green ribbon on her and took her to the parade.


I also loved these ones of Aggie in the snow...

13th October 2006, 11:13 PM
cecily they are lovely pictures :flwr:

14th October 2006, 01:41 AM
My cavy angel: that ruby pup in the denim jacket is just too cute! How old is she?

14th October 2006, 03:25 AM
There is definitely some stiff competition with Christmas pics, but I couldn't resist! This was taken Spencer's first Christmas day...it was around noon and he had already played his little heart out!



I am definitely in on buying a calendar (or 10 for all the cavalier fans I have created!)

14th October 2006, 05:11 AM
Here's my poor boys last Christmas. They were not thrilled with going to see the fat man.

My poor Duffy for Christmas. Bad enough that he had on the ears. The red sweater had a tree on the back with lights that blinked. Can you tell he was mortified?

14th October 2006, 09:13 AM
Molly you have gorgeous dogs!! They're priceless photos 8)
Love the faces on them in the Santa pic!

14th October 2006, 10:43 PM
My cavy angel: that ruby pup in the denim jacket is just too cute! How old is she?

Rosie is 2 years old now, but she was 5 months old in this pic!!

16th October 2006, 06:26 PM
Note to self...make trip to Iceland. What a beautiful landscape! :shock:

16th October 2006, 06:28 PM
:lol: Yes, It's really beautiful at home :D
I can show you some pictures of the place I used to live... :

These are taken this summer.

This is up in the mountains were I used to walk my babies. The just loved to run free around...

And this is the small town, called Dalv*k.


Nóra on her way... :lotsaluv:




Woops... :oops: I loosed my self a little bit... Wished I werer there with Bono and Nóra...

Anyway, this is just one of Icelands many faces. We have snowy mountains, grassy walleys like this, rocky deserts, glaciers, cities and black-sand beaches.

(I'm sounding like a holiday seller here... :oops: )

16th October 2006, 07:29 PM
Note to self - join Lindsay on trip!!! Those pictures are like taking a mini vacation. Beautiful!

I'm loving these!!! Here's a holiday picture


17th October 2006, 01:54 AM

Have you got enough room for all of us? There is no way they're going there without me coming too!! :lol: Iceland is absolutely stunningly beautiful.. along with your poochies of course :)

17th October 2006, 07:08 AM
Sure, sure, everybodies welcome! I can be your guide :lol:

17th October 2006, 07:22 AM
I don't mind which month, page, week, day or even the tiny left over corner.....I would just be so thrilled to see her on there...

Alison, Wilts, U.K.

17th October 2006, 12:17 PM
I feel exactly the same.... If kayla could even be on a corner of the calander that would be fantastic :)

17th October 2006, 12:40 PM
scratch the first one.. this is my all time favorite.. of course.. . . it's the one from my avatar. So are we doing this calendar thing for sure or is it still up in the air. Karlin, I haven't heard any opinions from you for it yet? And you definately have some keeper pictures!! :)


17th October 2006, 04:00 PM
here is Rosie and Emily during winter


17th October 2006, 05:08 PM

I am planning to sit down this weekend and look at all of the pictures and then divide them by the months in which they might work.

I was hoping to then put together a poll of sorts so that we can vote for the months to be used.

I think I will leave one month undecided and then take at least one pic from everyone and try to combine them into a collage so that no puppy (or mom/dad) feels left out.

Once we have decided I will need the chosen pics emailed to me in .jpg format so that I can upload to shutterfly.

After that I will start collecting money via paypal and then will need to organize shipment and disbursement of funds to Karlin's rescue or any other rescues we decide.

Again, this weekend I will do some leg work to organize. Will someone please PM me if they can help with setting up the polling for deciding on pics.

Thanks everyone!!

17th October 2006, 05:16 PM
Gret that this is going so well!
I will try to post more pics of Bono tonight, stop in the landscape :lol:

17th October 2006, 07:10 PM
Here's rory with pumpkin!


duncan's ma -- I did this last year for the CC board. We did it through shutterfly and it was a big hassle trying to get money from everyone. Have you looked into cafepress? Does cafepress ship internationally? That's how they're doing it this year. That way no one has to be the handler of money and people can order separately, in case they later decide they want more.

18th October 2006, 03:07 AM
Here are some favorite pictures of Coco. Some could be used for September, October, or November. Others are more versatile. Thanks!





18th October 2006, 02:57 PM
She is all about posing for the camera! :lol: Too cute! :p

18th October 2006, 03:56 PM
I LOVE Coco's crown charm! Where did you get it?! She is a doll! :D

18th October 2006, 04:31 PM
Coco, you are so beautiful :lotsaluv: :lotsaluv: :lotsaluv: too cute for sure! You surely deserve your little crown.

I'm itching for my Blenheim to come to me when she has finished her puppy duties. :D

maybe rory/nicki can help. Although I work for a computer company I'm not very computer minded!

18th October 2006, 11:00 PM
Nicki: for the calendar, please post that gorgeous picture of TedBear with the snow that was in the dirtiest dog section. That is one of the most breath taking photos I have seen!

19th October 2006, 07:48 AM

Bono dirty boy on a winter day :D

I'm going too post some more when I come home from school :oops:

19th October 2006, 09:27 AM
Jenny - what a beautiful picture of Bono! Breathtaking scenery.

Coco's mom
19th October 2006, 02:51 PM
:lol: Yes, Coco has become quite the little model. She used to be quite camera shy, but not anymore. She can't be since my camera is always out!! :snap:
She's always posing the same way too. She's looking at her grandma.

Oh, I got her Crown tag in a shop in Toronto. Coco is more interested in chewing it than wearing it though. :roll:

19th October 2006, 02:53 PM

Bono Christmas doggy :)


Okey, I stop now! :oops:

19th October 2006, 03:24 PM
Jenny, your photos are just gorgeous. That photo with the mountain in the background is just spectacular!

All the photos so far are terrific! What wonderful dogs we all have!

19th October 2006, 03:32 PM
I love the idea of a collage for one month. It's a terrific idea :) It feels like the dogs are kind of connected through this website. I'd love to see them all in the one picture :)

19th October 2006, 04:17 PM

She has gorgeous deep red colouring for being so young.

Where in Toronto did you get the Crown Tag, I live in Toronto and would love to get my boys one for Xmas.

Since ITALY won the world cup this year, I thought this might be a cute picture or is it not appropriate???????.
I haven't entered any of Dudley, better look through some of them before cut off date.


WAY TO GO ITALY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

19th October 2006, 06:56 PM
Here is another favourite of Darby
Where did my little boy go !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y77/ddd123/DarbyBoy.jpg

19th October 2006, 07:42 PM

Those are gorgeous pictures of your crew, sorry but one more request sweetie. You know the picture you sent me of Tedbear can you enter that one too.

Kyla is gorgeous, Oh and can you send some of that Scottish Air so my boys will get lovely coats too. :D :D :D :D :D :D


19th October 2006, 10:07 PM
Nicki Tedbear is SUCH a pro :lol: Every picture of him looks like it's straight from a calendar or something already. love the one of him on the beach in his blue puppia 8)

Maybe it's something in the ruby blood. Darby tends to steal the show also :D

19th October 2006, 10:15 PM
I love that of Dudley...what a good supporter!!

and Darby just always looks so cute xxx

Sweetie I thought it was the one of TedBear on the beach in his puppia? I might have cropped it down though...will have to have a look...otherwise can you describe it for me please?

Packing up a bottle of Scottish air for you :D It's a bit chilly now so would you like it prewarmed!!

SOrry Molly only just seen your post...this one I think?? Thanks for your comments, I love this too!!


and I like this one of Rupert too...


PS more than happy to help with the poll...let me know when you need me!!

19th October 2006, 10:20 PM
My poor Duffy for Christmas. Bad enough that he had on the ears. The red sweater had a tree on the back with lights that blinked. Can you tell he was mortified?

Oh poor Duffy, what a thing to do to him!!!

Has he ever forgiven you???

19th October 2006, 10:58 PM
Sweetie I thought it was the one of TedBear on the beach in his puppia? I might have cropped it down though...will have to have a look...otherwise can you describe it for me please?


Sorry Darlin, it is that one only you put a oval background frame around it. You are just so darned handy with that camera.

I never even noticed the Puppia as it hardly shows in the photo.
It is sitting very proudly on my Sofa Table.

I tell everyone that is what my Darby is going to look like when he grows up.

22nd October 2006, 05:09 PM
TedBear is very honoured that he's sitting on your Sofa Table :D

Your wee Darby is handsome in his own right, I'm sure he will be just as gorgeous when he grows up.

I've put the cropped one up now, I think it does look better!!

22nd October 2006, 05:57 PM
I love the idea of collages, my husband made this up for me...it needs updating now, as it doesn't include Jack and Kyla...


Cathy Moon
22nd October 2006, 06:53 PM
Wow, if I have said it before I'll say it again - everyone's photos are wonderful! :D

23rd October 2006, 02:43 AM
I just love looking at everyone's photos!!

nicki your photos are beautiful i had to keep saying :w*w: your cavaliers are so lovely i wish i had more i love these dogs :luv: all the pictures on here show how beautiful these cavaliers are ...

23rd October 2006, 06:27 PM
I am working on the poll posts...I think the best way may be to do 11, one for each month. I think that August is a good month for the collage that will include all of the pictures in the post that aren't used and any more that I may need.

I went through all of the pics and choose only 2 from each person unless that person had more then 2 dogs. I tried to include all of the dogs.

If there is a HUGE issue with the ones that I have chosen or one that was left out lets discuss as a group after the months have been decided in this first round

I tried to pick the shots that were more dog then scenery - it is a dog calendar after all.

23rd October 2006, 11:12 PM
I will post the last 4 months tomorrow.....hmphhh...I really wanted to get to it today!

24th October 2006, 12:49 PM
Thanks for sorting that Ashley :flwr: ;)

24th October 2006, 01:17 PM

All of the polls are up.

:thnku: all for making this fairly painless....I am so sorry for those that were left out and I now wish there were 40 months a year to include all of these wonderful shots.

The polls close Sunday night/Monday morning CST. I will be working on shipping costs and paypal etc...throughout this week and let you all know what the next steps are.

I really am enjoying doing this!!

24th October 2006, 06:20 PM
Ohh, these ara terrific photos! Like you said, wish that everybody could have been in.
I'm having serius trouble with voting..

24th October 2006, 06:21 PM
