Animal Tales - 107

Welcome to Animal Tales, the monthly linky for all your animal stories.  If you have an animal related blog post (old or new) then come and link up!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and I wish you and all your animal friends a Very Happy and Healthy New Year!  Mini-Pig, my friend's dog who dislocated her leg and was featured in last month's #AnimalTales, is getting better slowly after a successful operation to put her leg back in place, but she still has a good few months before she will be back to long walks again.

I currently have another dog staying, a rather lovely Lab x Spaniel but she has one major vice, she chases cats.  Poor Moo is not any good at standing up to her (Our old Henry would, in contrast, have put her in her place with one sharp wallop across the nose) so we are having to do rather a lot of Moo management, keeping the two of them apart.  At least it may, therefore, take her mind off beating up Fumée in the on-going Cat Wars we are living in.  Do you have pets that don't get on?

Favourites from last month

Thank you to everyone who linked up to the December Animal Tales. As ever there was a great mix including posts about sheep, coypu and red squirrels all catching my eye but I have chosen three canine posts as my featured favourites:

Natalie from Plutomium Sox wrote a beautiful post on how to age like a dog.

Where-as Vauclusedreamer wrote about her dog settling into life in Provence, much to her cat's annoyance.

And still in France, Diane, from Oui in France added a tear jerker of a guest post about adopting a dog in France.

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.
