No, not that beast.
Not that one either.
And not Doctor McCoy, come to think of it...
This has nothing to do with a Patrick Swayze series!
And it has nothing to do with a Peter Benchley novel or adaptation!
Ahem. Yes, I did have a point today. I've done the odd blog here and there on animals, as you may have already noticed. It's a trend I'll come back to from time to time. I thought I'd take the chance today to pass along several blog links to you where animals play a part. Some of them are specifically about animals, others are from the animal's point of view. To my long term readers, you might already know most of these blogs, but to others, they will be fresh. I suggest you give them a look.
First, my partner in crime Norma Beishir writes a blog from the point of view of her late grey cheeked parakeet Sam. It's called Sam's Story. Sam wouldn't let a little thing like dying stop him from making his opinions known, after all. Check it out to see the point of view of a remarkable bird.
At her blog The Life Of A Novice Writer, Shelly regularly gives control of the blog over to her two argumentative dogs, Hairball and SPAL. Check them out; they're really a whole lot of fun when they get to hijacking the blog.
Lynn Benoit writes a blog called Pets And Other Critters. She uses the blog to profile a breed or a type of animal, giving out handy information about critters you wouldn't otherwise know. And from time to time she adds her own artistic talents to the mix.
Angryparsnip writes about a variety of things at her blog Two Square Dogs. From her experiences in Japan to her life in the American southwest, it's all a backdrop for the real stars of the blog, Hamish and Watson, two utterly adorable Scotties.
The Happy Whisk is a fun blog with a great mix of humor and cooking... and regular updates on two adorable dogs that run the gauntlet in the house, Wiggy and Bug... who, from time to time do naughty things that end up with them getting a time out.
Old Kitty regularly blogs at Ten Lives And Second Chances, where her cat (and overlord) Charlie is front and center in photographs, regularly showing off, revelling in all the attention he gets from blog followers.
And Hilary has a blog called Feeling Beachie. There you'll find regular appearances by Alex, the now tailless cat, as he makes his will known upon his household staff.
Give these blogs a look, if you don't already. They're well worth the read!
