Animal Tales - 101

Welcome to Animal Tales, the monthly linky just for all your animal stories.  Got an animal related blog post (old or new? Then come and link up!

A change to Animal Tales

Over the 100 linkies Animal Tales has taken a lot of my time - not that I ever mind reading about animals mind you.  I am also finding that my other linky Going Green is getting bigger by the month so I have decided that from now on Animal Tales will run just once a month ... on the second Tuesday.  It will stay open for a week ans from now on please link up to TWO of your animal posts. 

Favourites from last month

Last month was the 100th #AnimalTales and I asked you to link up some of your favourite old posts as well as any new ones you had - it was lovely to revisit some old favourites but of course that has made choosing favourites even harder ... but here goes.  Sweet Sixteen from Ersatz Expat was a post I do not think either EE or I thought she would ever write as Bessie the dog celebrate her sixteenth birthday.  At the other end of the scale we have the new life that is Susan K Manns' the gorgeous kitten called Twilight.  And then it just has to be Suzanne's post about 10 places to see wildlife in Africa as this is one woman who knows how to win my heart - with HIPPO PORN!!!

Over to you now and you can add up to TWO animal posts.  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.  Thank 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.

  3. I'm not sure I can deal with such hippo action this early in the morning!

  4. Congratulations on the 100 linkies, I'm pleased to say I'm back to blogging again and have appreciated being included in the Twitter shout outs, even though I've not joined in for a while. Its just a round up post of what's been happening with the dogs and I look forward to joining in again in the future xxx
