Since we started a little late last year, I thought I'd start a new one now so the weeks are on schedule. Some may be repeats from last year, but after a whole year has gone by things change even with the same theme. I'll post a new theme every Sunday and it's up to you to take a photo in the next week to fit the theme. If you can't take a new photo to match on any given week, or you can use an older one if you wish . Themes will run Sunday's - Saturdays with a new theme given every Sunday to go for a week.

So what better place to have examples for ears than our own people?? If you have any nice shots of crops, post em here, a lot of people have different tastes and are drawn to different things. And it would be awesome to have the resource in our place to see different things.
We were discussing this in another thread and it would be interesting if everyone checked into this thread to post their puppies weight and age. Of course all dogs vary, but I thought it would be a good way to keep track your your own pups weight and see how they compare with other pups their age.
I scanned my notes (scribbles?) of Boris and Della's puppy weight and it's interesting how small Boris was compared to Della at the same ages, ...
