Calendar Suggestions  
I thought last year it was a rule we couldn't submit entries with people in them? I know this comes off as totally bitchy but I don't want to look at humans!!! I don't want to see their limbs, hands, or feet! I'm sorry but I am not going to stare at my calendar for a whole month and look at someone's foot.

Also, I wish people would put some thought into which picture would go best with which month. Just a friendly suggestion but if you're baby is wearing a Christmas sweater why enter it for July? 

I'm sorry guys I am just frustrated. It would be cool to have a really awesome calendar. Maybe I am just overly picky....  Good thing I'm not the mod or no one would enter my contest! 
 
 
I am feeling: annoyedannoyed

Oh, this is probably directed at me! haha Whatevs, everyone is entitled to their opinion. When the moment strikes, I just take a picture of my little Airborne and if that photo happens to occur when my husband is holding him so my husband's hands are in the photo, so be it.

Ew, I hate feet! Feet really bother me. That's just me though...most other limbs/appendages don't bother me. Although, I would prefer not see people's faces in the pictures.
Susanbusysuzy on October 18th, 2010 06:04 pm (UTC)
LOL! Me too! I hate feet! Except for cute little puppy feeties. Those I want to bite. :)

i agree, you come off as totally bitchy. =p

they sell people-free boston terrier calenders all over, including your local mall. part of what makes THIS calender awesome is that we are our own little community; one that consists of bostons AND their people.

and there are these things called hemispheres. you may be sippin' lemonade and sweating in july, but there are other parts of the planet (with bostons AND internet access) that get quite chilly during your summer months.

that being said,if you don't like a photo for a specific month, don't vote for it.

(take this with a ton of snark =D)
Genevieve: dog: hogwarts pig  halloweenalwaysgenevieve on October 18th, 2010 03:27 pm (UTC)
lol and i felt completely and totally bitchy writing it!!! So I will take your snark.

True. I am in Texas sweating my freaking ass off in July... so I automatically think of HOT! But in general, I think people think of July = hot.

That whole part of my post wasn't supposed to be bitchy. It was a suggestion to better help the person win!

The bitchiness came from the fact that I was pretty sure we had a rule going on about no people. Look at our layout. Do you see people?

I agree with all of this. I loved the rule last year about no humans AND that people should put more thought into what month they're entering their dog in. I like it when the photo on my calendar matches up with the month. IE in October lets have the dogs in costumes, in February lets have something Valentine themed, etc.

I'd be buying a calendar for the DOGS not their OWNERS. I don't want to stare at a photo for an entire month with someone I don't even know in the photo- I want the cute dog! I liked that this was a rule last year, and I thought it would be a rule this year too.

I wouldn't buy one if it had people in it. Just my personal preference :)

And I don't think you're too picky- this is something that's going to hang on someone's wall for an entire year.

Agree 100%
I completely agree with the "no humans" suggestion, I honestly hate it when it's not a picture of just the dog. I understand that this isn't a calendar full of "professional" photos, but that doesn't mean I want someone's random blurry snapshot on my wall all month. I love it when people put thought into a picture that it fits the month it's entered in.

why are people picking on you? i dont get it. i dont think you came across bitchy or anything.
Genevieve: dog: clementine & hogwarts crownsalwaysgenevieve on October 18th, 2010 07:10 pm (UTC)
well I admit I felt rather bitchy when I wrote it... so I am going to agree with the people that I was bitchy :)

But no idea why they are fighting with me? Guess they are the ones that submitted the photos with someone's face... or 3 people standing around at the dog park.

:)

Okay so it does come off as a bit bitchy, but maybe thats how it needed to come across to get people to pay attention. I thought the rules were NO humans whether it be hands or feet but i guess the mods forgot to add that in.
I also agree that i think people should try to have hte pictures correlate with the month which is how all of our past calendars have been.

As far as it being a popularity contest... Of course im going to vote for hte dog i think is cutest. Of course i have a few favorites. There are also a few people that are better at making their dog look amazing than others, but thats why their is the rule that each dog can only be the featured dog for one month. Otherwise Id try to make an entire calendar of just a few select dogs here, lol.
Genevieve: dog: clementine crownalwaysgenevieve on October 18th, 2010 07:12 pm (UTC)
hahaha. Yeah I have my favorite dogs in the community for sure. But if my favorite dog enters for July all blurry with people in the photo then I am not going to vote for them! Therefore it really isn't a popularity contest. People vote for the best picture!

& yes, i felt very bitchy.. I was annoyed!
Acacia Hopenight_sky99 on October 18th, 2010 07:26 pm (UTC)
I understand where you are coming from but I do feel like this is an issue you should have taken up with the mods. If I had submitted a picture with my hand in it, I would feel horrible and disrespected after reading this post. I definitely feel like a) this is something that should be handled privately, and b) handled by the mods.

Looking through the entries, I definitely feel like some of my favorites are spontaneous ones where there just happens to be a leg or a person standing in the background. Browsing through them, I see only 6 entries that have some trace of a human in them, but the dog is obviously the central part of the picture.

As others have said, if you don't want to be looking at someone's hand, then don't vote for that picture. Sure, it still be on the calendar (if they're doing it like they did in past years), but it will be smaller and off to the side so it won't be right in your face.
Acacia Hopenight_sky99 on October 18th, 2010 10:16 pm (UTC)
Also, I'm sort of curious as to why you didn't bring this up with the mods earlier. Why wait until after the entry phase is over to say something about it?

As far as I knew it was always a rule of "no humans" in the pic...which I totally agree with
Tina Pratt: Robbieenshogirl on October 18th, 2010 09:35 pm (UTC)
I just didn't vote for the ones with the feet and stuff in them.

I hate feet too. XD Would totally make me feel creeped out for a whole month looking at someone's foot even if it is sharing the photo with an adorable puppy!
Genevieve: dog: clementine bee halloweenalwaysgenevieve on October 18th, 2010 10:18 pm (UTC)
the thing is the photos still get put in the calendar. The winner it's get a spot in the middle of the page with the other photos surrounding it.
The Girl in the Self Imposed Box: bat ladyelisabat on October 18th, 2010 11:28 pm (UTC)
I actually completely agree. I would want a calendar for the doggies, and don't want to have to see people's appendages. I agree on the photo matching the month too. Wish Fizzgig could have participated this year, I just didn't have time. Maybe next year.
Genevieve: dog: clementine poutingalwaysgenevieve on October 19th, 2010 01:48 pm (UTC)
How is Fizzgig? I miss seeing his pics and updates.
