Animal Tales - 88

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.

Hello 2017

Welcome to the first Animal Tales of 2017.  I hope you all had a lovely Christmas.  Saari, our dog, had a great time with a total of 8 dogs staying over the festive period: Perle, Min, Pip, Izzy, Freya, Charlot, Syrah and Oscar have all been here but luckily for us not ALL at the same time!  They have all been very well behaved although I am not sure Min should have been on my computer chair!

Favourites from Last Time ...

Thank you to those of you who found time to link up just before Christmas including Suzanne from Dubai who took Bob to see Santa and  Carol from Family Makes who took the family to the National Pet Show.

Before you link up, may I also remind you about my new monthly linky called GOING GREEN.  The current one is open now until Jan 7th and some of your animal posts may well fit the theme of all things green, nature, conservation, sustainable, environmental, eco, organic etc. Hope to see you there!   More details can be found here and the current linky is here - Jan 2017 Going Green.

Over to you now.  Please add your ANIMAL 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.

The next #AnimalTales opens on Jan 17th.

    1. I think 8 at once in our small house would have been a bit much! Looking forward to reading your post and I hope it is going to be a happy one from what I can see on the thumbnail in #AnimalTales

  2. Hi Rosie, it sounds like Saari had plenty of company over the festive period. Have you considered opening a pet hotel? It could work. I love the photo of Min. Dogs get that cute, I know I shouldn't but I have anyway' sort of look about them.

    Wishing you all the best for 2017 and thank you for hosting.


    1. Ha ha. We do allow well behaved dogs in the gite and I do help out a lot of friends. I just wish they wouldn't all go away together as at times I can't see the floor for lounging dogs!

    2. It sounds like our house on a day to day basis. Wouldn't swap it though x

    3. I love your collection of dogs .... but I wouldn't swap them for Saari either!

  3. thank you for the special mention Rosie, I'm writing up a new post now, hopefully finish in time for the linky

  4. Min looks right at home in your chair! That made me smile :) Happy to be linking up for the first time in a while!

    1. She was there again this morning having chucked off the bag I put to block her! Nice to see you linking up again - thank you.
