Animal Tales - 84

Welcome to Animal Tales, the blog linky that brings together all sorts of animal blog posts from all over the world.  It runs every other Tuesday to the following Thursday evening.

I'm back

Apologies to anyone who looked for Animal Tales 2 weeks ago - I was on holiday in Ireland and so Animal Tales also took a little holiday too.  Sadly, when I was away we were to lose one of our regular contributors and I am sure all #AnimalTales readers will have been saddened to hear that Lisa's darling dog, Stella, lost her battle with cancer recently.  Stella often put paw to keyboard and I will greatly miss her canine shenanigans.  So, with Lisa's permission, here are a selection of pictures of Stella to remind us what a great dog she was and what wonderful memories she will have left with everyone who met her, both in real life and through Lisa's blog.

RIP Stella - I am sure I can speak for everyone who links up to Animal Tales and say we miss you xx

Favourites from Last Time ...

Gosh it's a while ago but looking back shows what a canine link up it was - with some goats thrown in for good measure.  My favourite, though, had to be the hilarious tale of a scruffy dog who had he audacity to go fishing in a French supermarket.  Please do head over to Vacluse Dreamer's blog if you missed this one. You will not be disappointed!

Over to you now.  Please add your posts 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 and @greenrosielife 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 include my badge (preferably) or a link back to this blog.
  • This is a blog link so please comment on the host post and at least two other blogs in the link up, ideally including the one in front of you.
  • Pinterest - not a rule but for even greater exposure of your blog post please do join the Animal Tales Pinterest board and pin a picture from your linked posts. Vertical pictures are best for Pinterest.
