Gibbie Snacks - A Recipe for Healthy Treats ~and~ Our November Epi-Tip of the Day!

"Gibbie Snacks," named after my Gibson and created by Vermont bakers at House Woof All Natural Dog Biscuits were formulated with the Epi-dog in mind, but are healthy, delicious bakery-made treats for all dogs! They never contain any preservatives, salt, wheat, or rosemary (all very important for Epi-dogs and dogs with allergies). Please remember to order some today for your dog's Thanksgiving treat and Christmas stocking or holiday gift ~ and the best part? It's a gift that gives back! (These freeze extremely well...if they stick around long enough!)  

For every bag that House Woof sells of "Gibbie Snacks," they will donate $1 to TheWally Foundation~Canine Epilepsy.

The Wally Foundation offers possible financial assistance for epilepsy medication to families/rescues/fosters of dogs diagnosed with idiopathic Canine Epilepsy. This is a great foundation and has helped so many Epi-dogs families already! I'm proud to be one of their volunteer Case Managers who work with and support Epi-dog parents in their time of need. You can check out their Facebook page, HERE.


So be sure to add some "Gibbie Snacks" to your holiday shopping list! You will get many licks of happiness for such a tasteful gift! To order your dog some delicious, healthy "Gibbie Snacks," visit House Woof's online store HERE. Be sure to tell them Gibbie sent you over!

#LiveGibStrong Epi-Tip #15 for November ~and~ Meet Epi All Stars Fearghas & Riona!




Meet beautiful Mastiffs "Fearghas" and sis "Riona!"


Fearghas says, "I'm Beowulfs It's Five O'Clock Somewhere 'Fearghas' an English Mastiff diagnosed with Genetic Epilepsy at 11 months of age. I suffer from Genetic Epilepsy. I take 24 pills a day to control and prevent me from having seizures. Canine Epilepsy Awareness is very important!"

Riona says, "I'm Beowulfs Wild Irish Rose 'Riona,' an English Mastiff diagnosed with Genetic Epilepsy at 21 months of age. I suffer from Genetic Epilepsy. I now take 36 pills a day to control and prevent me from having seizures. Canine Epilepsy Awareness is very important."


You can follow both Fearghas and Riona, and even ask their hu-parents questions about Canine Epilepsy and what's life like living with, not one, but two, Epi-dogs on their Facebook pages:
and

During the stretches of time without seizures, these two beautiful Epi-dogs, along with their non-Epi siblings, sister "Killian" and brother Massachusetts State K9 Officer "Jari," love to play and run and be with their family. Their hu-parents shared this wonderful video with us to promote Canine Epilepsy Awareness and so you can see for yourselves just how Epi-dogs can ~and DO~ live full, happy lives and bring so much happiness and love to their families!

Be sure to pop by and get to know these two *Epi All Stars* and tell them the FiveSibes say "Woo!"

Memories of Snowstorms Past on a Flashback Friday, Last Call for Bids & Photos & Daily Epi-Tip

S-n-o-w! Is there a better word for a Siberian Husky to hear? With the forecasts calling our area's first "snow" of the season, accompanied by arctic-like weather caused by the polar vortex, one can only think of snow! While I'll confess that the Husky kids are going to be a bit more excited than me about the snow, I do have some worries this year with Harley having a new diagnosis of arthritis in her rear right leg and Gibson having his continued hind end weakness, a ramp covered in slippery snow does cause some concern. But I know when the beautiful fluffy flakes of sparkling white fall from the sky in a beautiful silent world, I will enjoy it the beauty and the peace. This photo is a flashback to two years ago when all 20 paws were happily and healthily on the ground together enjoying a fresh snowfall!
