Wait. Was there an earthquake today? Fiddle dee dee! Puppies!

So, it looks like Jeff’s workplace is putting out a pet calendar, and the person who scores the cover image gets something like a million dollars or a free pancake dinner or something in between. I’ve decided that we don’t necessarily need the cover, but we do need a spot within.

Will you help me decide which photo to submit? It looks like each person is allowed only one entry. Oh my word, I’m living in a pressure cooker over here! Life can be so tricky sometimes, no?

Photo #1: Scout in the Pool (This would make a great July shot, don’t you think?!)
Dog Days, etc.

Photo #2: Scout’s Big Puppy Feet (Why do we still have the pink carpet?! WHY?!?!?!)
Puppy feet!

Photo #3: Father’s Day! (This is good, because we’re also advertising one of the company’s books!)
Happy Father's Day.

Photo #4: Scout in Motion!

Photo #5: Scout’s First Day as a Pudding!

Photo #6: I can’t leave Henry out of the mix, but this is my only decent shot of him, and he’s showing his boy part…

Photo #7: Luna with Laptop on her back. (Rest in peace, Luna.)
Now I get it.

Photo #8: Sidney and Ramona Quimby
Sid & Ramona

Honestly, I’m leaning toward #4 or #5, but I would love to get your input. Because, really. What else do you have going on over there? (I know! Have I thanked you lately for putting up with me?!) ‘ ‘ ‘text/javascript’>

  1. I’m head-over-heels in love with number five. It makes me melt. But I can see what people love about number four too, which would be my second choice. Please let me know when the calendar is out. I would love to purchase one.

  2. Just one??! I’m terrible at choosing. They are all so darn cute, but yeah, I think I’d go with five as being in the “impossibly cute!” stratosphere.

    Can you subtly pay a visit to the person putting the calendar together and ask *their* opinion? “Which one do *you* think I should submit, huh, huh? And oh by the way, would you like this batch of cake pops I just happen to have brought with me for no reason whatsoever?”

  3. No 1 or 5. I’d lean towards no. 1 as it is ‘different’ and looks more like a studio shot (unintentionally).

    And about that earthquake…

  4. I can’t see 5 because work is blocking half the pictures, but based on what I can see, #4 is a winner. The tongue!

  5. #2 or #5 because both make me want a puppy and I need another thing to keep alive like I need a hole in the head

  6. I’m torn between #1 & #4.

    I like #1 because it looks so dreamy. But then u wonder if I would want to look at a wet dig all month. Maybe, because it’s so dreamy.

    I like #4 because of the composition. And yr tongue. I think it was the tongue that did it for me. So cute!

    I think you need to be careful with #5 because there may be competing against similar submissions.

    If I REALLY had to choose just one it would be #4.

    Good luck!

  7. No, no, no…hands down #2 if I had to choose one single photo that I’d want to look at everyday for a month! The rest are truly, truly wonderful, but #2 is calendar quality from the start! Okay, so maybe #5, too!

  8. Five! Six looks like my dad. Do you have my reincarnated father in your yard? I think you might. Make sure he exercises and eats his vegetables, and don’t let him watch politics or the Bowl games on TV, they both make him very upset.

  9. 5 because she’s smiling!! but 4 makes her look like she’s flying through the grass, so that’s a close 2nd! (all are adorable, though!)

  10. #5 is first choice, then #1. It’d better score the cover, dammit – no other animal could be that cute!

  11. I like 5, and then 2 and 4 are tied for close seconds. You could just photoshop the pink carpet a different color!

  12. #1 is a solid choice because it is so specific to a month. They may get a lot of head shots, they may not get a lot of clear, specific activity shots.

  13. #5. Then 1 or 2. In that order. :) But Kizz is right…go for specificity and it might land her a spot!! :)

  14. #4 b/c it’s adorable and b/c of the swath of grass on the side…perfect place for putting the calendar information

  15. Either two or four. I’m really no good at this – I cheated on the PD cutest dog contest and entered Oscar under two different names and email addresses because I couldn’t decide between short hair dog and long hair dog.

  16. 2, 5, 1 in that order.
    OR – go take a bunch of Henry and Scout together.
    The one of your hubby is nice, but not pet-centric enough.

  17. 2! Those puppy feet will stomp on any competition. (the others are adorable but those feet – she looks like a muppet! a muppet who makes me melt a little.)

  18. #1 is the most creative and beautiful picture. All of them are fine and the pets are all adorable, but the first picture is different and will be different from anything anyone else is submitting.

    Seriously, why would you ask us this? You know you’re going to choose whichever one you like no matter what we say. Then all the rest of us who chose the one you didn’t will be disappointed. Do you want to ruin my summer? Huh? You don’t care?

    Well, then, my vote is for #1 but pick whichever one you like best.

  19. I vote for number 1. As someone else said, it’s much different than the ‘typical’ pet photo. It also has an artistic quality to it. My second pick would be number 4.

  20. Number 1 will win, definitely. It’s really awesome and different. 4 and 5 are great, but I’m afraid others will submit similar ones, and I want you to WINNN!

    I’d like a free calendar, please. And that Brita Water Bottle and To-Go Container.

    I see all of Jeff’s toes!

    Loveya. Glad your surgery went well. :)

  21. While #2 is adorable, I think it will be a relatively common calendar-submission pose. I am torn between #4 and #5, but #4 wins my vote. I could look at that photo all year, let alone a single month!
