Friday Ark #76

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 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. Time permitting we will continue boardings until the Carnival of the Cats goes up on Sunday.

Do link to the Friday Ark whether you use trackbacks or not.

Visit each border and come back regularly Friday-Sunday to visit new boarders.

Extra, Extra: All Ark boarders are invited to shout out at the Friday Ark Frapper Map. (49 shouts as of 03/02) BTW, the slideshow of the pics folks included is pretty nifty!

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 102nd edition will be hosted this week by Catcall. There are more weekly cats at eatstuff's Weekend Cat Blogging which has many participants who may not be familiar to Ark or Carnival participants. Do go shout out at The Catbloggers Frappr Map.

Lair is holding a raffle in conjunction with the 102nd Carnival of the Cats. Get your entries in!!

Bird folks: I and the Bird: A Blog Carnival for Bird Lovers is published every 2 weeks. The 18th edition edition is up and hosted by the The Bird Chaser. The 18th edition will be hosted by Science and Politics on 3/16. Get your submissions in!

For the spineless: Circus of the Spineless. A monthly celebration of Insects, Arachnids, Molluscs, Crustaceans, Worms and most anything else that wiggles. The sixth edition is up at Science and Politics. The 7th edition is scheduled for March 31 and will be hosted by Hmmm, not posted yet. You've got time to get those submissions sent in!

For other current carnivals check out The Conservative Cat's Carnival Page, The Blog Carnival 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....

Dexler is spending overnight at the vet hospital, while Sasha and Taffy take time out to recover at home, as we do.

Hello, hello!

We had quite a few popular "Other Vertebrates" up this week at Farmgirl Fare, so you may need to pick and choose if space on the ark is tight. (Don't worry, I won't tell the losers who they are : )

Hi there,
Donkey Doodle Dandy is sure adoring Bear in a lot of categories. But, LOL, do you really think they are spineless? : ) Thanks for the links--wherever they are!

We see you've welcomed us aboard. Well, Friday Hound Blogging anyway. The rest of Ironicus? OK, we're sure you'll get back to us on that.
