Sunday Challenge " Fins Feathers and Fur"

OK, Fins - Feathers and Fur how hard could that be. Well it started a whole debate on what is fur and what is hair. I thought I knew. So I checked it out in the Dictionary and it helped but not much, it pretty much said any mammal with hair and more so if the fur was valuable, actually this is what it said never mind suffice it to say I have decided to go a different route this week. I really was kind of stumped on the fins though, now don't burst out laughing but I have not been anywhwere for awhile so I had to make do with what was on hand. Well it had fins! I managed to scrounge up one more depiction of fins.

So on to the feathers. It's funny how you get so used to things you don't even see them anymore....well at least that happens to me frequently. Anyhow since we moved here I am deprived of all the beautiful birds I used to see daily, so I thought I would go next door and get some pictures of their chickens, then I talked to Shirley over @ Ride A Good Horse and she suggested this. Not the first one but the rest of the feathers.

No offense to the chickens this was the better choice.(they aren't cool like Sid over At Laughing Orca) I bet we see him on this challenge.... oops sorry I'm wandering......... well back to my submissions. Well here's the Fur, probably not what you expected to see.

Well I just can't help myself Fur - Hair whatever, you tell me. For those of you that may not have seen shots of my pooch here is Sage, if her bed looks a little strange that would be because it is. She has taken over my shower.........uhm to long a story I will save that for another post.

Well folks that's a sign off for me. I look forward to seeing all the Fins Feathers and Fur. Have a wonderful week.

Well I think Sage must have wanted her own stall, just like the horses (get it? shower stall. hehe)

Your painted animals on the feathers are gorgeous, especially the horse! wow!
Great choices all, but the frozen haddock just made my day. Too funny!

Sorry I let you and other folks down and didn't post any Sid Vicious pics for this challenge, though. It made me smile knowing that he is so well-liked, though :) He's way more popular than me! lol!
