We haven't had a challenge for a while and i thought that maybe 'Love' would be a great theme for February.

what does love mean to you? it could be the love for your partner, your children or other family members, pets? there are endless possibilities - why not think outside the box?

feel free to post as many as possible:thumbsup: and they can be old photos or new ones , taken with any camera! now get shooting:bounce2:

Here's mine: the first two are from when Arthur was a baby. Just a little while after I got him. He snatched up my heart quickly!

This other is...well obvious. I think it's a pretty story and a defining moment in the show.

i was thinking that earlier, in so many ways too. :yes:

Dawn

Yeah Tink wins.

Tink
24-01-2009, 04:36 PM
Wow, you are all reading my mind! I was thinkning that posting a full photo of that would mean love to us, of course.

But it's already in the avatar so no need to post another version. It is love, in one form. :yes: There are many faces and expressions of love though.

It will be nice to see how our members define love. :yes:

That is our Dakota and I honestly think he fell in love with Katelyn the second we brought her home :yes: He NEVER left her side and when we had to bring her back to the hospital overnight he freaked out and looked everywhere for her. I hope he remembers all that now when she tries to brush his fur with a My Little Pony brush :lol:

:hug2: for you Johnie

Shelly - I have a photo of Daniel as a newborn that is very similar to that one - I'll try to get it on the computer to show you.


Edited to add the photo: Sorry for the quality as it is old (:() and I had my dad email it to me. Your photo Of Katelyn just really reminded me of this one, I think it's the black spiky hair :lol:

Far more than I can give her without her getting fidgety Dawn. The difficulty is that now she's no longer a Crufts showdog (as when I rescued her a few years back) but a rough and tumble pooch who ploughs through the brambles. Sometimes we were coming home from a walk and spending an hour pulling stuff out of her fur! Last year we felt sorry for her being hampered by everything and got her cut right back....I actually cried when I picked her up as she looked like a totally different dog, but she was so much happier afterwards! I've let her hair grow out over the winter to keep her warm and to help us decide whether we're going to let her grow it all back again or not, but already she's starting to get it matted...so we think that a severe haircut is in order again! She won't look like a traditional Beardie anymore but she's still my Sorrel! I think that's one reason I love those pics...I'm not sure she'll ever look like that anymore!

Aww thanks Tink. Her hair is a nightmare but easier when kept short. Its a lovely auburn colour. All the old ladies ask me what number we ask for when we have it coloured :unsure:

Tink
11-02-2009, 01:44 PM
I can tell it must be a real challenge with all those beautiful curls. :yes: It looks lovely short and that is the key!!! I think it's hard to find a haircut/style that looks good short (but then I have the worst hair going).

At any rate, OFF TOPIC!!! :eek:

Back to our snapshots of love... :yes:
