Animal Tales - 7

Posted by Rosie

Welcome to Animal Tales, the blog linky that brings together all sorts of animal blog posts.  It runs from Tuesday morning thought to Friday night and showcases a wide range of animal related posts.  

Harry, our new rescue Labrador, is settling in well although not without a few "moments".  Saari has taught him how to jump the gate and we then caught him having pinned a duck to the ground.  Ducks are now to be relocated elsewhere and there will be daily lessons of walking Harry through the new duck pen on a lead to help him learn not to chase them.  Harry obviously came from a house without cats and lessons need to be learnt around our feline friends!  Saari is becoming more accepting of him and whilst they still sleep at separate ends of the bed they do sometimes now sit together in the daytime.

Harry and Saari bed sharing!

Thank you to everyone who joined in the linky last week - it was good to see lots of animal related New Year Resolutions and advice for cats and humans!  I really liked A Healthy Happy Mummy's post on how dogs are good for your health.  Having completed some super fast walks with Harry and Saari over the last week I can vouch for how good dogs can be for your exercise regime.

Feel free to come and add your animal related posts to the linky below.  As ever I am looking forward to reading your entries.  The posts can be old or new and as varied as the animals who we share our world with.   There's a Pinterest Board with pictures from all the linked blogs which you can see here and if you tweet with the hashtag #AnimalTales I'll retweet you.  

Full details of the linky can be found here and once again can I remind people to comment on a few of the others who link up.  It's only polite and keeps the thing working!

  1. Thank you for hosting. I'm reading with interest about your new dog, not sure when we'll be brave enough to rescue another but I know it's going to be hard work when we do! ;)

  2. Harry and Saari are beautiful! I hope Harry learns to behave himself with the cats and the ducks (we would so love to have ducks..one day). Thanks for hosting. I have to go and find out which is Harry and which is Saari now!

    1. Luckily the ducks were fine and daily walks through the duck pen are helping Harry to learn to leave them alone.

    How nice of Saari to teach Harry how to jump the gate, but I do hope that he also learn how not to chase the ducks! haha!
