July Photo Challenge: Week One

Hi everyone! Dachshund Mommy here with week 1 of the July Photo A Day Challenge. I was originally going to do these posts on Friday but then it'd only be 6 days and I can't do it on the weekends so...yeah. The photos will be posted on Mondays I what I'm getting at :). I have a cold, so please ignore any rambling!
Submission for the Blogville Olympics starts today! I think Nola will be entering about 14 of the events. So go ahead and send in your pictures to the hosts!
Nola bean goes to the vet either tomorrow or Wednesday for her annual physical and her heartworm test. I know everything will be fine, but I can't help being nervous. Nola is my baby, obviously. I have to switch the heartworm medicine Nola is currently on, and would love to hear what all of you use!
Which of these pictures is your favorite?

Day 1: Self portrait 

Day 2: Busy

Day 3: Best part of your day

Day 4: Fun

Day 5: On the floor

Day 6: Chair
Day 7: Garden


  1. Fingers crossed for Nola.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. I LOVE the FUN and Garden pics !!!

    We take Heartguard Plus.

    14 events.... that is super Nola. THANKS fur your support and hard training.

  3. loving the photo challenge already! you are so creative with what you pick. ps - we use sentinal which is heartworm preventative + flea and tick stuff.

  4. Yo, yo, what's up girl? Good luckies at the Vet's. Be brave little one, be brave! We use Heartguard Plus also. Sometimes it upsets Muffin's belly, but Mommy found that if she gives it to her with dinner, she does much better and doesn't hurl. We tried another brand that was in pill form but we both don't do pills well!

    We got your pic this morning for the Couch Potato Peeling Event and tho we won't kiss and tell, the pic is awesome!

    I think we entered about 7 events so far and are going to try and work on some more. At 14 events, you've been very busy!

    We always love all Dachshund Mommy's pictures, but we wanna eat some of those ribs on the counter. Yummy!!!

    Have a great Monday!

  5. It will have to be Day's the corn. Heh heh. :)
    Whisky is on Heartgard Plus. Good luck at the vet, Nola!

  6. My favourite is day 7 garden. I love how the tomatoes stand out in the foreground with the background blurred.

  9. Hmmmm...I LOVES da foot foto and da chair! We loves doxie feet what can I say.
    We use Heartguard plus but mum has to braek it up fur me cuz it gotted lodged in my throat onetime and I nearly got deaded. Every few months we change to a pill and we gobbles it down. But I not remembers da name.

    We wish Nola all da bestest luck at da vet.


  10. Dachshund Mommy....
    Well.... It is lunchtime over here, and those food pictures are making me hungry!! ;-}
    I like Day 1: Self Portrait. Day 4: Fun. Was that your Independence Day feast? And.... Day 6: Chair. Because I like black/white pictures!! ;op
    Love, Raelyn.... And Rose, my BEAUTIFULLY UNIQUE "Mystery Dog"!!

  11. Good luck with Nola's vet appointment, all be well, I'm sure! :)
    I love all of those pictures, but my favorites would have to be self portrait, on the floor, and chair! Beautiful photos.

  12. Good luck at the V-E-T. Yippppeeeee Olympics

  14. Hope you feel better soon. Colds are no fun.

    great pics. :)

  15. We LOVE #3 - we had pizza crusts tonight from the leftovers:)

    We used to get Interceptor but since it became unavailable, we are now trying Heartgard. Mom says we will go back to Interceptor once it becomes steadily available.

    And seriously, all your photos are awesome.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  16. Sure is not funny to be sick! I hope you feel better soon!
    I love the pictures.... on the floor is my favorite!
    Good luck at the Vet. My mom gives me Heartgard... the only one available here! Hmmm...
    Kisses and hugs

  17. Good job on the photo challenges!
    I agree, pizza is ALWAYS the best part of the day!

  18. On the floor and the chair are our favorites!!! We wish you well at the vet!

  19. My favorite is "chair." I also love "garden." I think the way you approached the "self-portrait" is cool too. We use Interceptor for heartworm protection.

  20. 1, 4 and 5 are our favorites. They are all really cool and now Mommy wants pizza.

  21. all the pictures are great but I like #4 - Fun. I hope all goes well at the vet. I use Advantage Multi for Fred and Gloria, it is for heartworm, fleas and worms.

  22. I'm sure everything will be fine at the vet's but we'll keep you and Nola in our thoughts anyway. It certainly understandable that you'll have nerves about that these days.

    Bella gets Heartgard but I'm not confident about that choice any more. There have been reports that it hasn't always been effective and the company knew about it and covered it up.

    All your pictures are wonderful (as always!) but I think I like 5 and 7 the best. 5 just has such a wonderful perspective and is a nice use of color, light and focus.
