The Friday Five

Friday again? I'll take it! It's been one of those weeks, which makes a visit to our friends even more enjoyable. Let's see what this week's list has in store.

What's with the award anyway? 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!

Who next? So many blogs - I wonder of I could pull off a Friday Fifty. Now that would be ridiculous fun. But I needed to sleep a bit this week, so we'll stick to our usual format.

First up this week: Gardenwife's Plot. Check out the timing of that power outage yesterday. Now that is a bummer! Say hello to Kimberly and the dogs on your way through.

Our next stop is Nuttin But Hound Dogs - another Greyhound blog that we love to catch up with. Lisa is prepping for a road race in October. Offer encouragement - or sign up as a virtual runner and help a great cause.

We sure do love our Labs. So we love Lab blogs in a major way. Find your way to a great one this week and pay a visit to Dog Daze. Sassy knows what she is talking about! And that wordless Wednesday pic stopped me in my tracks. Many great posts to be found here...

Now tell me Moco isn't just the cutest little pooch! Moco Online is where he hangs his hat, and you should grab a spot on the recliner while you still may! Rumor has it that Moco witnessed an interesting crash landing recently. I sure hope there were no probes involved. ;)

Our final stop this week: Emma Rose. We have made our love for Border Collies known, and this gorgeous girl is a gem. Enjoy a recent camping trip with the family, and let them know we sent you...

More blog love. There's much more where that came from!


  1. Never get tired of reading about others furkids. Such cute pictures. Thanks for the links.

  2. Houndies and more houndies and now a bunch more to gather around the gold hydrant! How cool is that? Thanks Mr.!

  3. Moco is one of my faves, too! Happy Friday!

  4. Thanks for a great list!

  5. Well maybe we'll stop by once we've done all our catching up! For now though, we just wanted to drop in and say's so great to be back in the land of the living and see all our old mates :D
    Have a great weekend ladies!

    Have a great weekend.

  9. Congratulations to all!

  10. Thank you as always!


  11. Ive saved your post to my favorites as Ive not yet figured out how to save to my blog the places I visited since joining blogland July 31st 2009. So many nice blogs Ive been to this week and have trashed all the other ridiculous sites I mentioned in my posts!

    After reading all about 'dogs' & their escapades including Thinking out Loud's Blog and her post about Bear that I wanted to go out and buy a dog!

  12. More great pikhs!

    But then again, woo nevfur let me down!


  13. Thanks for all the recommendations and links, and congrats to the fab five this week! It's always an honor to be listed on Nigel's blog (um, and Truffles and Sola's blog too, of course).

    I wonder if you could do a big summary listing sometime in October, or November, you know, like a quarterly report of the Friday Five award winners.... when everyone is settling back into blogland due to the weather, then we'll all have more time to visit all these wonderful new blogs! :)

    It's been another great week at work.. what? You think I'm being sarcastic?? Never! Since it's a temporary stint, I love my job. Time to settle in with a Friday margarita, homemade with Grand Marnier added into the mix... and do a little blog reading, tweeting and facebook networking. Hope you all have another great weekend, kinda like your last weekend. :-D

  14. I know Moco!
    Now I am going to visit all the others!
    Kisses and hugs

  15. Oh my gosh! Thank you sooooo much for the award! We are so honored.

    Your devoted fans,
    Emma Rose and the Duchess

  16. damn you buggers for keeping me on the road of procrastination... i will get you my pretty. and your big doggies too!

  17. I love Friday Five! It give us a chance to check out blogs we wouldn't normally have seen. Emma Rose is our buddy and we love her too!

  18. Wow new friends.. ya..

    Big Sloppy Kisses
    Gus, Louie and Callie

  19. The gold hydrant !!! I LOVE it !! and thats coming from an old fireman !!

  20. Wait a minute. That was five. You confuse us when you follow the rules.

  21. Yes, I agree it has been one of those weeks! Good thing I can show your blog to Mom so she has something to giggle about. Thanks for all the hard work you do and I love the Friday Five every week! Great way to make new furiends!

  22. Wow! A golden hydrant! I think my new brother Graham could use one of those. He has super long pees, but he forgets to keep his leggie up in the air. Or maybe he's just lazy about it.

    Are you in Montreal this afternoon? Quick! You have two hours to get here. There's a Greyhound Meet up at McAuslin's Brewery at 3 pm. If Hurricane Bill doesn't blow through.


  23. This is a very cool award, I look forward to it, so I can go make new friends. You are a very cool dude and you look great in a suit, what more can a girl ask for.

    licks and sniffs, Sasha
