Post by: Nakia on November 01, 2014, 09:18:15 pm
Hi Folks, I would like to announce the BP Photo Competition for the month of November is starting today. This month's subject/theme was chosen by me De'Andrea (Nakia) for winning last month's competition. I have chosen *Favorite Photo~Any Subject* for our subject/theme this month and this is what I would like to see in the photos you enter:  :grin:

I am going to make this month's subject/theme easy for every member to come up with a photo they can enter. I want ya'll to show me your most favorite photo of your life. The photo that is most dearest to your heart. Your entries do not have to have any bird in them. But if your favorite photo includes one of your birds, that is quite fine.

The subject(s) of your photo can be of your family, pets, garden, ~~Anything~~ And please tell me why the photo you chose is your most favorite.
  :loveuk:

All photos need to be entered right here on this page. Only one photo entry per competition. Every member including staff is eligible to participate. The winner of this month's competition will choose the subject/theme for November's photo competition. And the winner will also get one of our 'Best Photo Award' Icons  added to their signature area. This Icon will remain on their signature and each new win will get another Icon added to their signature.  handshappy

The Competition will run from today November 1st til midnight (Central Standard Time in the US) on the 21st of November. On November 22nd we will be adding the Poll with all the photo entries for everyone to vote on their favorite entry.

This is my absolute favorite photo of my life up to now.  :loveuk: It is a photo of my miniature poodle, Jon La Croix who I lost on January 8, 2008 at the age of 17yr.  :cry: This photo was taken a few yrs earlier during my black hair days, can't remember the exact year, but he was getting old already and had lots of trouble with arthritis.

I brought Jon La Croix home at the age of 6 wks 10 days after my black toy poodle of 10 yr died suddenly of kidney failure in January of 1991. He had abandonment issues due to his Mom dying when he & his little chocolate colored sister were born. His breeder hand raised them, but she worked full time and the pups were alone for hours at a time. Every time I left the house without him he would literally scream his barks & try to beat me to the door so he could go too.  :slaph:

When Jon La Croix was 9 yrs old he & my other top poodle Jeaux Ber rode on Jerry's truck back & forth across the US for 5 yrs. Both poodles had gotten to go through all the lower 48 states & Canada many times in those 5 yrs. Jon La Croix absolutely loved having me with him 24/7. It was the highlight of that boy's life!  :heart:

I still have a hole in my heart from losing Jon La Croix. I still miss him after almost 6 yrs. And losing him is the main reason I ended up with 6 of my 9 dogs within a yr after he died. Grieving can do really strange things to a person, even if it is 'Just A Dog!'  :hugu:

Come on now folks, only 2 more days left to get your entry photos in for this month's competition.  This is the easiest subject so far with being able to use any photo you have.  :thumb:

Let's  get a bunch more on here. I love having a hard time deciding with lots of choices!!  :handshappy:

I guess you could say that any photo that has Weasley in it is my favorite....but I chose this picture because her wisdom and knowledge shines through her eyes in it. This is the gorgeous lady who taught me about birds. Not only about birds, but about many other things. Lots of things wouldn't have been possible without her. My beautiful Weasley.  :heart:

"oops2"  :ashmd:  :faint:  :hehe: So sorry Blanca for telling your little secrets here!!  :Oh:

Ok, enough kidding from me for my boo boo.  :ashamed: And for anyone who may be new to the forum I assure you it was a very bad typo calling Blanca's kids "fatherless"!  I truly did mean "featherless " :slaph:

And to clear it up a bit, this is still my work week. When I posted the 'presumed compliment ' on Blanca's choice for the competition,  I was at work and using my "not so smart" smartphone.  I didnt pay attention and definitely did not proof read my post before leaving it feeling confident that I had spelled everything right.  :dmblaf: (Word of caution~~never trust a smartphone~~the sneaky devils  will change words behind your back!!)  :2funny2: That's  my story & I'm  ssssticking to it!!!  :grin: PS, I'm still on my phone  and still at work right now, so who knows what it may change when I leave for another topic?  :sad8: 

Thanks Jules & Blanca for actually pointing my 'slip of the finger' out. I'd probably never noticed it if ya'll  hadn't been looking out for me!  :lol1:

Awww, that is so touching and precious Maddy. I can absolutely see why you chose your Very Beautiful Weasley for you entry.  I remember the stories you told about the things she taught you and helped you to become the confident exceptional  bird owner you are today.

Miss Weasley  is indeed deserving of that great honor!! :heart: I so admire you and your dedication to you Fabies!!  :hugu:
