Wolf Under the Weather on a Wordless Wednesday; And Binx Stopping By to Say #BlackCatsRock!

The heat wave continues scorching us here in Northeast, even though today we can at least breathe! Our FiveSibes have been living inside in the a/c, but this week sweet Wolf has been hit with a very harsh GI bug after a bit of excitement with an unwelcome visitor - Mr. Groundhog, flared up his anxiety that brought on the GI issues that bordered on HGE.  "Things" have thankfully, and finally, calmed down internally, and he did start to get his appetite back last night and ate a bland meal and homemade bone broth for supper and this morning for breakfast, so hoping the worse is over.  Pictured here, on our not-quite Wordless Wednesday, he's resting comfortably, the first time in a couple days. Stay cool and hope you are all doing well!



And...in honor of International Black Cat Day, here comes our sweetheart "Binx,"  a feral kitty no more! 

As many of you know, he was a very feral little boy brought home five years ago by our sweet, now furangel adopted cat "Smokie." My daughter rehabilitated him, and he was vetted adopted into our family! He and Smokie were always together, and now he is the King of the front lawn! 

Gibson loved to watch the cats through the front door, and he was the only one of our Huskies who actually would lay out on the lawn while on leash with me and just chill alongside the kitties!


And yes, Binx is named after the character-turned-in-a-cat in one of our fave Halloween movies, Thackery Binx in "Hocus Pocus!"

Feelin' Cool in the Pool on a Flashback Friday!

"What are you waiting for, Mom? Turn on the hose!"
We are in the middle of a sizzling heat wave here in upstate New York! Today the temperature was 93℉ with a heat index of 122℉! No weather for dogs, especially Siberian Huskies! While my Huskies were all relaxing inside the cool air conditioned house, with quick jaunts outside to do their business, take a quick splash in their pool, and quickly retur back to the cool confines of the house, my thoughts went to my sweet wooly angel Gibson. He did not like the warm weather, let along this brutal heat. Plus, being an Epi-dog, a canine epileptic, heat and overheating can trigger seizures, so keeping him cool was always a top priority, as is keeping all the Huskies cool. Oh, but he did love the pool! This photo is a flashback to three years ago, the summer of 2013, and is one of my favorite photos of Gib. When I pulled out one of the kiddie pools,washed it off, put it down on the deck and then turned around to pull some more hose length, I turned back around to find that Gibson had already made himself comfortable in the pool, just waiting for me to turn on the cool water! He was such a character! I know he is always with me and will always be part of our FiveSibes, but I miss him. This memory and photo will always tug at my heart, remind me how silly he was, and bring a warm smile to my face!

Memories of Mom and Her Love of Animals on a Flashback Friday

Mom with her two beloved rescue dogs, her heart dog "Brandy" and his sweetheart "Lady"


Last month, July 9th, was my beloved Mom's first birthday in Heaven. She would have turned 95. As I spent the day reminiscing of times we spent together, and we had some many wonderful ones, I realized I was on Memory Lane, and what a wonderful Flashback Friday these memories would make. So for today, I'd like to take you all on a stroll back to my role model, inspiration, and hero, my beautiful, amazing mother!


When I was young, I spent summer weekends on the shore with my Mom, her mother (my Nanny), my aunt and cousins where we spent hours on the beach, wading in the Atlantic Ocean, and strolling the boardwalk, going on rides and playing games of chance, all under the wonderful caw-caw of the seagulls. So many special times. To this day, the sounds of a roaring ocean and cawing of the gulls is home to me. In later years, one of our favorite things to do was grab some lunch and iced coffees and head down to our beach in hopes of finding the seagulls there. Mom loved to share her fried with them! We also brought lots of bread. I think those seagulls knew when she was there as they would flock to our car and Mom would open her door and they would come right up to her! I can still hear her wonderful laugh as they all came around her!


 When the gulls landed on my Jeep, my Mom was able to get a close-up meet-and-greet and how she loved it! It was as if they swooped in just to say "hello" to Mom!




I was an equestrian in my youth, riding, showing, training, and teaching. While my Mom had a bad fall years ago while riding at an academy in New York City, she still pushed past her fears to always accompany me to my horseshows and even hold onto my horses for me while I prepared for the ring! 


I love this photo I took of her at one of my shows after I put my hat on her! She was always so proud of me, my biggest cheerleader! And I was so proud of her!



Mom also had a great love of Poodles, and had three in her lifetime: Misty, a teacup; Princie, a miniature, and Joy, a toy, pictured here.





When the FiveSibes came into our lives, Mom loved to spend time with each of them, having chit-chats, getting Sibe kisses, and give lots of pets!


My Mom was my very first best friend, and when my daughter was born, she was the best Nanny ever to her, and soon we were not only family, but three best inseparable best girl friends who shared many stories and secrets, lots of girl talk, car rides, and coffee breaks together! The "Three Musketeers" my Mom always called us!

I know my love of animals came from both of my parents, and watching my Mom with her animals over the years, and we've had many, you can see that special connection, the human-canine and human-feline bond, that runs so deep. 

Losing my Mom was devastating, and losing my beloved heart dog, Gibson, a month later was crushing. I like to think since she was with me the day I welcomed him home as a four-month old wooly ball of fluff, that they are now together, with Gib embraced in my mother's warmth and love and my dear mother enjoying those sweet Gibbie kisses.



I'm blessed to not only have had her for my mother and best friend, but to have such a loving, inspirational role model for both me and my daughter.
