Well this week certainly flew by! I've been on the road a bit, and had to schedule posts to publish in my absence. I have not had a chance to catch up, but I did set aside some time to peruse some blogs from our follower list to see how everyone has been. That can only mean one thing - another Friday Five.
But first, a tag-athon! If you offered up an award that we missed, please let us know.
First up, Mango and family surprised us with this one!
Mango lives in Massachusetts, and we are hoping to arrange for a visit to his area this summer. Look out!
In an interesting twist, we were double tagged with the following this week:
Lindsay from Life With Big Dogs, and Kimberly from Awesome Dogs @ OB Beach found us worthy of this fine award, even though I have no idea how to pronounce it. :) Thanks to you both!
Now on to the Friday Five (or so) for the week. And the accompanying cheap trinket we created especially for it - the Gold Hydrant Award (more). This item of little to no value is yours to display, or not. No questions to answer, no need to pass it along, no rules, no strings. Brag to your friends or run away in shame. Either way, we're hurling this at you because we think your blog should be seen. Cut and paste if you'd like, or cut and shred!
Where to start? How about with Team 3 Dawg Flite? We have been long time admirers, and Sola is ready to take the plunge and give jumping a try. Considering getting your dog in to the pool? All you need to know is here. Jump in!
Next on our list...Amber and Nala from NW Ridgeback. Some of their pics have been our favorites of the week. Dig in to older posts and follow some fun school projects. We almost got a Ridgeback before Truffles came along, so we secretly covet Nala!
Take a moment to congratulate Krista and family from Shades of Blonde on their recent addition to the household. Hello Copper! And be sure to take a stab at the Magic 8 Ball widget. Very clever.
Mrs. Author wants some ducks now that we have room, and this touching, flat out awesome story from The Happy Pit Bull Blog will do little to dissuade her. Once you are done feeling all warm and fuzzy you'll probably think the cute factor was maxed, but be sure to check out Pepper and Little Byrd as well!
Ever had a Pony chew and swallow your cell phone? If you answered yes, then you and Colleen Mulrooney from Furry, Not Fried have something in common. Read on to find out how she retrieved it - and from which end.
I have always been a turtle fan, and stop traffic to get the little fools out of the road whenever I can. Even had one as a pet growing up - which is why this cute and touching story from The 'splorin' Wolfies had me smiling bigtime. Tell Saige thanks for observing catch and release etiquette!
I was late to the party, but was no less happy for it when I saw that Luna celebrated a birthday recently. Nigel thinks Luna is a looker, and who are we to argue? Send belated wishes to Elizabeth and Luna this Friday.
I hope you weren't counting this week - it looks like I lost my abacus. And again, that little plus sign gets us off on a technicality. Truth be known, I'd get everyone in, but the Friday Five Hundred just doesn't sound the same.
Enjoy the blogs of our friends as we do, and tell them we sent you. Be well and enjoy the weekend!
