Friday Ark #119: Limited Edition

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....?

Limited Edition Alert (12/28 14:55 MST) : The Ark crew is encamped high in the Northern Idaho mountains with no net access in our abode. There may be some opportunity Friday between 10-2 PST to do some boarding but I expect it will be Saturday night or Sunday before everyone gets on board.

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.

Idaho sounds cool, if not cold. Here, Summer's on the way, Sasha and Dexter will attempt to stay cool when it arrives in full.

Thanks for hosting the Ark again! Today I realized how much I rely on you to be a consistent and predictable connector in the social network of pet bloggers. I really appreciate the work you do.

Stay safe and have a great new year.

Yikes. That sounds like a good time. Now I know why Lady opens her third eye: She's watching you hotdog!
...mmmm... hotdog...

I've also got Los Gattos from a local photojournalist's blog.
