Teamwork

Shari Morehead and her husband have five wooded acres in Nebraska. They share the land with their eight labs, and the few pictured here are Mongo Pete, Little Pete, Auggie, Odie and Sugar Bear. Shari calls them her "Lab Team." On this sunny summer day, the labs found a large stick in the Nemeha River and competed to bring it over to Shari and her husband. Shari says, "When they all find one stick, they all want that stick."

This photo was one of the winners of the first week's theme. Check back at the group's Facebook page to learn the weekly themes for upcoming contests, which will continue through Sept. 7.
