Pets and Yard Art... It's That Easy

In celebration of the auspicious occasion upon my recent re-tweetment, I would like to propose a little game.

We are going to have a sub-game running until October-ish. I had the spark of an idea from a comment last night on Facebook. Since my demographic is so small - (yard art and the people who secretly love it) I have decided to expand my topic for one day a week.

Yard Art and Pets

On Mondays or Tuesday... you guys decide. I will post any pictures I receive of your pet and a yard art item. This is perfect for those of you are a little nervous scouting out lawn artists. Any pet, cat, dog, horse, ferret... frog (That's for you Lin) and maybe your favorite piece of your own collection or maybe your Mom's... whatever.

In October we will vote on the perfect 12 for a calendar. Those people whose photos are selected will receive a free calendar. Just in time for Christmas because you know your sister would love a calender featuring Snooky-bo and a flamingo.  (yes I am finally doing this Cindy)

Caesar and my tennis playing hedgehogs

This is not as easy as it sounds because it took 15 shots with my camera phone in every one he looked bored. You can tell he is really excited about the idea of me dragging him around to get yard art pictures until I get the ball rolling. Also he is ignoring me but the is normal.

Have fun, have a good weekend and remember the game is afoot and the scoring has begun.

  2. Great Kira! I hope your animal shows a little more enthusiasm than my dog. Next time I will hold a treat with the camera.

  3. Caeser is beautiful! No wonder he looks bored - he thinks hedgehogs, gnomes and flingoes are beneath him!!!

    1. Very true, he loves you and has disdain for the person who loves him, feeds him, brushes him and bathes and clips him. This morning he was laying in his bed (could have been a tender bonding moment)I laid on the floor and put my head in his bed. He tried to push me out with his little devil feet.

  5. It may be a bit hazardous to get my dog to pose with my gnome...

    I hope your calendar goes well, I had one for 2012, so far I have given away more than sold. Next year I will need more yard art, it makes the sale.

    1. Ah Cindy, I missed so much. I am sorry that I did not know about your calendar.

      Yes suspending your dog in the air may tend to be risky.

  6. Ahhh, do kids count as pets? I don't even have a goldfish currently. Does it have to be MY pet?

    1. Winnie you can be as creative as you want to be. I really did not want to get into kids because of the the calendar and the posting of children to literally tens of people. If you want to borrow a pet or grab a toad, it is wide open.

  7. Ooooh, I'm gonna have to really sneak around to get my frog with some yard art--he's very shy and only really comes out at night. I'm thinking of calling him Dracula--it drives me crazy.

    We have some time, right?? I hope so...I'm gonna need it.
