Friday Ark #118 23 comments

We’ll post links to sites that have Friday (plus or minus a few days) photos of their chosen animals (photoshops at our discretion and humans only in supporting roles). Watch the Exception category for rocks, beer, coffee cups, and….?

We add boarders all day Friday plus intermittently on Saturday and Sunday so visit frequently.

Do link to the Ark every week!

You can find out how to board the Friday Ark at the Arkive page.

Note for Haloscan Users:

Over the past month or so Haloscan started (the end of July) handling of trackbacks has improved though it is still pretty broken for carnival type posts. Now, instead of rejecting every attempt to ping it accepts single pings for a while and then will start rejecting them. I will keep trying to track back to Haloscan boarders but can make no guarantees for any particular week.

Note for Typepad Users:

Typepad continues to behave similar to Haloscan for trackbacks. I been able to get trackbacks to most, if not all, Typepad based boarders. I have to do it one at a time and wait a while in between pings but Typepad does not go into semi-permanent rejection mode like Haloscan.

    This weeks sailing of the Friday Ark – the 118th in that noble Series – is thankfully unencumbered by power outages and other technological problems. Go pay a visit to the Modulator’s magnum opus and enjoy the Hairy (and non-hairy) Menagerie.

    Friday Cat Blogging No. 44: Hopper Bag

    It’s supposed to be a hockey bag, but now it’s a Hopper bag. She seized it for herself while I was airing it out and letting my gear dry. *sigh* You can see a close-up here.
    Why am I posting this so early? Because I haven’t sl…

    ‘Bah!’ said Vazra. ‘Humbug!’

    It’s not even Christmas yet and Vazra is already practicing his miserly look.  He feels Scrooge was too nice a character; only a cat could have done the part true justice.  But to be perfectly honest, although he looks like a grumpy old…

    Friday Creature

    I’m postponing the shore birds for one more Friday so that I might bring you a creature I only just met this past week. He’s an incredible siamese cat named Chamois, who might just think he’s a dog. He’s a…
