The Friday Five Special Edition

Welcome back to the end of the week. Amazing how quickly it reappears - but I'll take it! Before we say farewell for the weekend, let's visit a few more great blogs. This week, a slightly thinner version of the Friday Five awaits.

A reminder of the spirit in which this award is offered: I thought it fun to offer up an award with zero strings attached. No need to "paw" it forward, answer ten questions about anything, or even acknowledge it. No tag required. Feel free to display it on your blog or not - this is simply our way of pointing out that we truly enjoy what you do!

So let's dig in to a slightly different list. This week is about our needle-nosed blog friends. We truly love all breeds - heck, Nigel is outnumbered by Labs in our house. But thematic lists are fun, so here it is...

Pay a visit to Tales and Tails, and share a lazy morning with Bunny. I love this sweet girl. You will as well. This blog is well written and a fun read!

Here is a blog that I just stumbled across yesterday. Drop in on Tango and Harley and check out Greyt Blog. Harley is new to the house, but it looks like Tango has it all figured out - he even has his own black bar!

No Greyhound blog tour is complete without a visit to Genji's Corner. Spend some time at this blog and tell me this is not the happiest pack you have seen. Thank goodness for large sofas. :)

Feeling the heat this week? Crash the pool party at My ROO Spot and check out just how cool a Greyhound looks in sunglasses. Priceless! We have followed this Virginia blogger for some time.

Here is a blog with a great name - Treasure What You Have. A good reminder, no? Angela and family are always fun to visit. Check out their Orlando trip and tell them we sent you.

Make sure to head west for a stop at Greyhounds in Seattle and give them a vote for that Orvis catalog cover. Send Tara healing vibes also if you will...

Finally, in order to keep my tradition of very bad math alive, I offer a seventh suggestion for your surfing pleasure. Say happy Friday to the gang at Life's Little Moments and scroll down a bit to see what I consider a fine case of shoe tasting!

Are there other great Greyhound blogs out there? Many. We'll get to them soon, but for now it's time to embrace the weekend and leave our cares behind. As always, enjoy the tour, hug your dogs and be well.


  1. I am truly honored to be part of your greyhound blog tour. I will have to check out the links I don't already know. Thank You!

  2. I will have to visit those flat dogs. Frankly, I do not understand them at all.


  3. Congrats to the awardees - we will have to visit them too. Have a great weekend.

  4. I feel so special! I'm so happy you enjoyed my morning! Now I have to bark at mom to start writing my next tail of adventure!

    Twirly Tails,

  5. Thanks for that post - I've been looking for hounds with blogs, had only come across yours to this point! My dad has a rescue hound, and my sister has two - it's great to hang out with such gentle, funny dogs! My dad's hound (Maggie) is marked just like Brutus, and they are wuite the odd couple when we go on walks together! Her head & butt are the same width as Brutus, but she's like 2 feet taller!!
    I'll pass along those links to my family - they'll love to check our the blogs!!

    Michelle & Brutus

  22. Fern says greyhounds are good because they are grey! Yeah, she is grey too so she is biased that way.

  23. I applaud you for your great generosity in sharing these blogs. Mom and I love to explore new friends. You make me wish I were a greyhound or a hound of any kind, alas I am a humble shih tzu and very proud of it.

    licks and sniffs, Sasha
