Friday Ark #81

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:

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. (54 shouts as of 04/06) 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 107th edition will be hosted this week by The Scratching Post. 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.

Bird folks: I and the Bird: A Blog Carnival for Bird Lovers is published every 2 weeks. The 20th edition is up and hosted by the Bootstrap Analysis.

For the spineless: Circus of the Spineless. A monthly celebration of Insects, Arachnids, Molluscs, Crustaceans, Worms and most anything else that wiggles. The seventh edition is up at Research at a Snail's Pace. The 8th edition will be hosted at the end of April by Get Busy Livin', or Get Busy Bloggin'.

Arkive editions of the Friday Ark.

Alert: Updates may be slow today between 10:30 and 4:30 EDT.

Exceptions (inclusion not guaranteed)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....Update (4/7/06): Haloscan has beome much worse. Last week I was able to get TBs through to only a few sites before it stopped accepting them even after long intervals.

I'm being lazy this week... well, more lazy than usual. I've blended my cat and dog blogging into one wonderful, must see post...

Sadly, our submission from FarmgirlFare.com this week goes under In Memoriam:

Thanks. Have a great weekend!

Oops. Forgot we have a few more:

Other Vertebrates:

Babies Chew On Everything:

Big World, Small Donkey:

And then there's Dogfoot (under DOGS):

Just toss one overboard if this is too many boarders. I'll let you decide who. . . : )

Whoops! Sorry about the multiple trackbacks. Movable Type kept giving me "500 Time Out errors." Didn't think the TBs were going through.

Nicky, aka El Gatito Perfecto, is pleased to make his first appearance on the Friday Ark.
