Well... Jack doesn't like cold feet. So, he "Supermans" after each brief touch of the snow. :) It's hilarious to watch him.

This makes me smile, so I'm entering. I hope it makes you smile, too. How could it not?

LOL!

Either way... I'm happy. And you should be too, 'cause...

Life is good, even when it's not.



DASH through the snow... just 'cause you can!

Ok... I'm getting excited about this! 7.7 might get me the Blue. I need it to complete my "set" this year... LOL! I have all Top Ten slots covered except the Blue. And this is the LAST challenge counting for this year.

Please be Blue... Please be Blue... Please...


Post Challenge: YES!!! Yippeee! Yippeee! Yippeee!

Thanks for the great comments and votes, folks! I'm so happy with my 'complete set'. :)


Jack (a Silky Terrier, Jason) is happy that he won... and happy the snow is gone.

Just lovely. Congratulations on your blue. Your excitement is almost as infectious as Jack's enthusiasm to get home. My dog used to superman off the boat dock chasing birds... I think she thought she would fly too. Still brings a smile remembering. Great capture!

Congratulations on the Blue it truly is a fantastic photo!

I only gave this a 7, which is the highest I have ever given a shot that I thought was DNMC. But how could you have titled it any differently? Well done!

Great shot. What kind of terrier is that? Looks a bit like a Cairn...

Lydia, you have a way of capturing a moment that touches everyone's heart. Didn't get a chance to vote OR comment this challenge, but this would have been my choice for blue, for sure. It really does warm my heart. And I know just how he feels. You should see ME navigating in snow...

Congratz Lydia. You deserved this win 100% with this super delightful image. It was my favorite for this challenge as I said in my comment already and I am glad it won. I gave it an 8 during voting by the way and that was the only 8 I gave for this challenge as well as the highest score I gave.
