Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Nope, I just start the threads a lot of the time. The past month's winner gets to pick each theme, and Michael definitely picked a good one this time Smile

Cool, thanks Meredith on letting me know how it works. I think it's a fantastic way to have fun, and see all the beautiful huskies, and I did read that there's a calendar made up of winners, yes?
Bring the pics on people, I can vote, can't have all the fun yet.

We have done a calendar for the last two years, Jenn Bealer does the legwork and then we donate the money we make to a rescue that's been chosen at random.

And looks like you don't have much to go before you can participate, you may even get in this month Smile

If I can convince my husband to get me a digital camera, before it's all said and done. Maybe. Although I'm a sucker for huskies, I'd vote for them all if I could.   bounce

You're right Meredith, I've been a chatty cathy today, now I got to get that digital camera, anyone with recommendations?

Just to bump the tread a little bit, Nala doesn't sit still for anything in the car! This was a good topic though!

With Mishka's beauty and your photography skills, it should be a winner!

Canon makes some really good point and shoot cameras that aren't terribly expensive, and I've always been pretty impressed with the Nikon Coolpix. The only downside with the ones I had was that there was a little bit of a delay between hitting the button and it actually taking the picture. Mine were both much older though (Upgraded to a DSLR in 2008) so they may have fixed that issue. Canon is really good on shutter speed though.

Thanks Meredith,
We have one store in town and they offer a no name one on sale for $130.00, I figured on spending at least that much, but for a no name, uh uh, I was thinking cannon, had one pre digital days. My husband was always the camera guy, guess I'll be the camera girl. Although I have posted up pics of Miya, it's from hubby's cell phone, so I don't have it when I want it, but I think the picture quality is not good for showing her off. Thanks again.

Ugh, I have a great road-trip pic but it's back from winter! Also, our next trip isn't until the last week of August, so it'll be too late for HOTM. Bummer!

A road trip in August could be a trip to get ice cream at Bedford Farms (or elsewhere - Mass. is a great place for ice cream). And stage a pic Laughing

Ooh, good idea. There is a good ice cream place on practically every corner around here. Haven't been to Bedford Farms yet and it's not too far from us ...

I really like the goofiness of number 7, but probably 8 would be a better calendar pic...All are delightful!

I like #6 - "Mom, I'm soooo bored! Are we there yet?"

I like either 6 or 7 -- preference for 6 because of the goofy pose!
