Best outdoor dog pictures (week 3)

Here are the best outdoor dog photos you submitted for week three. If you haven’t had a chance to submit any photos yet, you still have one more week. Send your outdoor dog photos to, and I will publish them next Sunday.

These are some really great photos! I am impressed! It’s fun to see all different kinds of dogs outside having a great time. Thank you to everyone who has participated in the contest so far.

Take a look at the photos:

Pruett the German shepherd


Pruett (6 months) is owned by Christina Solomon. They live in Durham, N.C. Pruett and his sister Daphne have their own blog, GSD Adventures.

Dutch the mutt


Patti Struchynski of Fargo considers Dutch (eight) to be obsessed with tennis balls. When she first got him he would lie with the ball between his front paws and continuously lick it for hours if she didn’t stop him. His prior home probably left him alone with a tennis ball to keep him occupied.

Munchy the yorkie


Munchy was going to be put down but was adopted by Kim Novash of Quebec, Canada. Kim said Munchy has a lot of courage for such a small body and thinks like a big dog. Check out the pet site Kim contributes to.

    How can you pick Lindsay, they are all gorgeous. Although the bubbles are cute, I loved the one of Ben

    Oh, Munchy is soooo cute in the little snow outfit! Penny, Biggie, and Layla are great too. Oh but, gosh, they really are all great! I love this new feature you have. I would love to see dog pictures as a regular feature continuing.
