Friday Ark #51

Cats, Dogs, Spiders and ? every Friday.

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....?

Next Week's Ark (9/16) The Ark crew will be traveling next week with limited net access. We will put up Friday Ark #52 but expect limited updates!

We will add your post to the list if you do one of the following:

  • Leave a comment or trackback to this post,
  • Use the Carnival Submission Form,
  • Email Modulator or
  • Our extensive staff finds it during our weekly search of the web
Of course, if our staff goes on strike then we will link only those posts someone tells us about.

Remember: Visit Each Boarder and come back regularly Friday-Sunday to visit new boarders.

Dog folks: remember to submit your links to the Carnival of the Dogs hosted by Mickey's Musings.

Cat folks: remember to submit your links to the Carnival of the Cats which goes up every Sunday and the 77th edition will be hosted this week by Blog d'Ellison. Update (9/10): more cats at eatstuff. Weekend Cat Blogging 14 is up. WCB has many participants who may not be familiar to Ark or Carnival participants.

Bird folks: Remember to submit your links to I and the Bird: A Blog Carnival for Bird Lovers. The 6th edition will be hosted 9/15 by Bird Chick.

New for the spineless: Circus of the Spineless. A monthly celebration of Insects, Arachnids, Molluscs, Crustaceans, Worms and most anything else that wiggles will be posting its first edition on September 30 hosted by: Milk River Blog.

And, check out Laurence's fine graphical analysis of Friday Ark boardings.

For other current carnivals check out The Conservative Cat's Carnival Page and The TTLB Uber Carnival.

Note for Haloscan Users: Haloscan started (the end of July) rejecting trackbacks if they were submitted "too rapidly" by the same host. I don't know what the timer is but it is long enough so that it was very difficult to ping everyone that is using Haloscan for trackbacks. I'm sure that they are doing this to try to hold back the tide of trackback spam but it makes the service pretty useless for carnival type posts. Perhaps you can contact them and urge some different solution. Update: Typepad appears to be doing the same thing. Everytime I update the Ark it appears the timers are reset and the long list of MT autogenerated pings fail. Yecchhhh....

The featured picture in this week's Birds in the News is the lovely and incredibly clever Black-billed Magpie, Pica hudsonica.

This week on my Friday Night Dog Blog, Taffy visits the vet, and Sasha enters into a carnival of the dogs spirit. You can also see a blue-tongued lizard, and a the horse with the name, Touch.

Best wishes

A flock of canaries in the backyard today, scarfing on the clouds of moths the rain generated.

I made a mistake. It is not a canary in the photos linked above, but rather a Yellow Warbler.
