This challenge begins right now (April 2, 2009) and will end at noon (CST) on Friday, April 17th.

Here's the theme: dogs. That's right: pooches, puppies, canines, woofers, tail-waggers, mutts, flea bags, hounds, and more. No cats. Cats are evil. If I see a cat in any image, it will be DQed. :rolleyes

So give us the best capture of your beloved mongrel—running, sitting, barking, eating, eating a cat, sitting, licking, etc.

Here are a couple of my fido pictures. This is Spencer. He's a Coton de Tulear.

OUR UN-OFFICIAL GENERAL RULES

1. Have fun sharing and seeing what others share!
2. The host supplies a topic and you post 1-3 images. The host judges the winners (1st, 2nd and 3rd) and is not eligible to enter.
The 1st place winner then chooses the next topic, judges the winner and passes on the baton to the new champion.
3. Any photo you’ve taken is eligible, regardless of when taken or camera used.
4. Any amount of post-processing is allowed. However, it is helpful if you list your camera and lens along with your photo.
You may comment on other contestant's images. If you want someone to leave you some critique or criticism, put an asterisk (*) next to the title of the image.
5. The winner has up to three days (72 hours) to begin a new mini-challenge, or the honor goes to the #2 finisher and so forth.


Guidelines:
1. Enter 1-3 photos and put them in a single post.
2. Either embed your image in the thread or, if you must, supply a link to it. Keep in mind, however, most people don't want to click to open photos hosted elsewhere (i.e. on your website).
3. Also try and resize your photos prior to posting so they're sized appropriately for viewing without having to scroll (~800 pixels on the longest side works best.)
4. Give each image you enter a title.
5. Enjoy discussion with members about their images, dont let this just be an entry thread!
6. Dont be hesitant, share'em and enter!

    (NOT AN ENTRY, but someone has to defend the poor, maligned cats of the world!)

    Cats are not evil. And if I ever win one of these things and have the chance to pick a theme, THEN the cat will be amongst the pidgeons! Ahem... :D

    Great shots Jeff!

    I don't (currently) have a dog so I have to resort to shots of other people's dogs.

    You're only as good as your next photo....
    One day, I started writing, not knowing that I had chained myself for life to a noble but merciless master. When God hands you a gift, he also hands you a whip; and the whip is intended solely for self-flagellation...I'm here alone in my dark madness, all by myself with my deck of cards --- and, of course, the whip God gave me."
