Cold Sunday at Dog Tales Sanctuary...

This beautifully-marked, four-and-a-half-month-old pup (above)  was  a Dog Tales visitor and impromptu greeter to everyone in the cafe.   Another visitor (below) was a wee-bit-of-a-thing, snugly attired in a full-length coat with a turtle-neck collar, warm boots and, if you can believe it ... socks!  

This pretty boy, named Damien, was born at Dog Tales last May 24th weekend and has spent the last seven months or so, in a separate paddock with his mother.   He willingly lets you pet his nose and then tries to nip you fingers.  There are plenty of signs about telling you not to pet the horses, so you can't say you weren't warned.

More and more different kinds of critters are showing up in the Dog Tales pens and paddocks, including pigs (see above), cows, donkeys, ponies, geese and chickens.  Among the few exotic chickens, is an Icelandic rooster (seen below).  Icelandic chickens are a landrace fowl which is rare outside their native country, where they have evolved since being introduced by Norse settlers in the 9th century.
