Animal Tales - 35

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

A Quiet Week

This week I have no bird landings to report and in fact very little news at all.  Fingers crossed things on the bird front are looking up after the deaths of two weeks ago and life has been very quiet with Simon and the boys still away on holiday.  I did look after a friend's 2 dogs over night on Saturday and Saari thoroughly enjoyed their company as, I imagine, they did too.  So much so that 4 hours after they were collected they reappeared back here all by themselves!  They live about 4km away and have a penchant for chasing the local wildlife to the point that if they finish chasing what-ever poor creature jumped up in front of them (they never catch it) and they are nearer our house than their own, then they toddle over here instead of going home and waltz in as though this is their permanent home!  I have to say though, that that is the quickest they have ever returned here so maybe they thought just one night with Saari was not enough!

Min, Saari and Pip

Thank you to everyone who linked up last week.  I loved the blog that was "written" by the wonderful Bentley which I have added onto this week's linky as it was a late addition and I suspect some people did not see it.  Read and enjoy!  I am giving you an old blog post about our oh so NOT brave Saari!  I promise you that this one is not as sad as last week's post.

So over to you now.  Feel free to come and add your animal related posts to the linky below.  The posts can be old or new and as varied as the animals who we share our world with.  If you tweet with the hashtag #AnimalTales I'll retweet you.  Just give me a nudge if I appear to have forgotten you.

Full details of the linky can be found here but can I remind people of a couple of the "rules":

  • Please can you comment on at least 2 other blogs linked up - that is, after all the whole purpose of joining a linky to find and comment on more blogs and hopefully drive traffic back to your blog.
  • Please can you include my badge (preferably) or a link back to this blog.
  • Can I remind people not to add sponsored posts or paid-for reviews.  Eco-Gites of Lenault has no advertising on it and I am not comfortable promoting products or companies I know nothing about.
