The Late Breaking Friday Five

Sleep won the battle last night. So let me say good morning for a change!

I don't think I have seen a week pass as quickly as this one in a long time. It feels like I just typed this post two days ago! Never mind my lousy grasp of time, let's reach out to some new blogging friends again.

Most of you know the scoop, but for the uninitiated here is the deal: 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 have had a great time visiting you!

Our first selection this week is one I have been chuckling relentlessly over. Far from a dog, Jaques Le Feesh is making me want an aquarium in a big way. Pay him a visit and drop me a comment and tell me if that is not one funny fish!

Next up is an old blogger pal, and another needle-nose blog that we just love. Spend a few minutes at Learning About Life With Greys and check out their recent hike - and be inspired by a good deed.

Need a dose of Pug? Tweedles has your prescription. Tell me that hula skirt is not a riot! Tweedles is another old pal, and has the cuteness factor cranked up a bit.

Princess the Pit Bull
is our next recipient. After our week-long heat wave, it was fun to visit and land on a recent post with a snow pic from last winter. A great place to chill...

Another great Pit Bull blog rounds out our list this week. I urge you to visit Pooches for Peace and leave a message for one stressed out dog owner. Shadow is having a rough week and could use a few words of encouragement. We can relate to spay remnants and false pregnancies - not fun. But there is much fun in the archives!

How has your week been? Let us know if you have a moment, and have a safe and happy weekend!

    OMD Jacque le Feesh is too cute and makes me miss having a fish tank!

    Oh what great blogs!

    Very busy week, with nothing all that fun going on..

  2. I always look forward to your Friday Five (or Seven, Eleven, etc., depending on whether or not your math is challenged that day), because I love to explore the fun and interesting blogs you've found in your travels through Blogger Land. Today is no exception! Love today's Friday picks! I'll definitely be adding some more blogs to my Follow list. Thanks for sharing, and have a great weekend!

    Jacques La Feesh is a silly dude!

  4. Ok, I seriously never thought I would follow a blog about a fish. Don't know whether I am that pathetic, the fish is that funny, or both.

  5. We cannot believe that you have found not one but five blogs we don't know!
    Frankly we are just not keeping up and our week isn't long enough!
    Congratulations to the winners - we know they will be well deserved and trust your good judgement.
    We really will try to get round! Enjoy your weekend.

  6. We love ALL your recommendations, thank you for sharing them with us.

    Jaques Le Feesh and Tweedles are just too funny, and yes, we too now want a fish tank. Calvert is in love with Princess, she's way adorable!

    We're praying for Shadow's recovering and hope that all those who visit your blog will too...

    (Savannah too)

  8. I love all the CATS following the Jacques the fish blog! Excellent!

  22. HI! I visit here now and then... will make it more frequent in the future!

  24. Hello friend, thanks for checking out my blog! I will be sure to check in on yours!

  25. Thank you so much for the mention and the award. It was very thoughtful of you. The boys and I appreciate the plug.

  26. Y'all have been given a friendly award. Please come to my blog to pick it up.
    Lord Duncan of McDuff, and Sally Ann Canis

  27. congrats to the awardees.......good choices

    awwwww Jaques Le Feesh is one funny feesh..... here's praying our kitty friends will decide to keep him around ( for a while, at least ) for laughs......

  28. I have seen it all now. Jaques is one frisky fish!

  29. Jacques Le Feesh. What a riot!
    Tail wags,

  30. Thanks so much for stopping by. I think greyhound rescue is the greatest. Nice looking dogs you have there! And Tweedles is the funniest little girl. Her moms need to write a book about her adventures.

  31. WOW! This was quite the shock! Well, not as shocking as throwing an electric hairdryer my way, I suppose. But shocking nonetheless. Thank you for including me in the Friday Five! If I wasn't a cold blooded little dude I'd be blushing right now.

    *glubb, glubb*

    I'm wondering what is in Jacques La Feesh's water? Is it the same stuff that Nigel is so fond of? It would explain a lot ....

  35. Love checking out your Friday Five...especially when they are new to us!!! :)

  36. Thanks for the award! Some of your readers have send thoughtful comments Shadow's way. It's much appreciated!
