Closing Out November's Epilepsy Awareness Month Featuring My Epi All Star: Gibson ~and~ Epi-Tip #30!

Wooo! We are SO pleased to announce that from our very first #FiveSibes #LiveGibStrong K-9 Epilepsy Awareness online benefit auction, hosted by AFA - Auctions For Animals, we will be donating $1,277 EACH to the Canine Epilepsy Resources ( Epil-K9 for "Emma's Fund" through the North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine ~AND~ The Wally Foundation- canine epilepsy (!!! THANK YOU to all who generously donated items, bid on items, and shared news of our auction! And THANK YOU to Kerry Stacey and AFA for partnering up with me and hosting the event! Together we can and DO make a difference in the lives of #Epidogs! #paws4purple #CanineEpilepsy (**Gibson's beautiful custom bandana was one of the auction items made & donated by Laurie B Creates!**)

Well, the month sure has flown by! This is our 30th (and last) daily FiveSibes #LiveGibStrong Epi-Tip in conjunction with November's Epilepsy Awareness Month, and I'd like to dedicate it to my own Husky, Gibson, my Epi All Star! While November may be coming to a close, our campaign to spread the word about Canine Epilepsy continues on! Dogs can - and DO - live full, happy lives with Canine Epilepsy. So spread the word! Education is key, and letting folks know they are not alone is so important! Help is just a keystroke away! 

Gibson and his helpers Harley and Chloe check out the new shipment of Live Gib Strong K-9 Epilepsy Awareness bracelets! If you'd like one, they are just $5, including shipping & handling in the USA (outside of USA, contact me and I'll have it checked for postage fees at the Post Office), with $1 from each sale going to Canine Epilepsy Resources "Emma's Fund" and $1 to The Wally Foundation. Contact us if you are interested, or you can you can purchase via our website at ArcticHouse Publishing or through PayPal to ArcticHousePublishing(at) Be sure to check off that the funds are for friends & family. And then wear your purple with pride!

Still coming ahead in December will be our Purple Pumpkin Project video, and - of course - the release of my new book all about these Epi warrior dogs, so we are not done! Canine Epilepsy Awareness is not just for one month - it's every day of every month. If you missed any of our Epi-Tips or posts, visit past posts for this month to catch up.

 And don't forget - my illustrated children's book is available from our publishing website HERE, and a portion of proceeds from the book benefits Canine Epilepsy Resources "Emma's Fund" through the Epil-K9 Foundation housed at the North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine. The book, a three-time "Best in Print" recipient from American Pet Magazine, was just favorably reviewed by Writer's Digest!

Gibson and I would like to thank our furpal and fellow Epi-dog Patchy, the Epileptic Doggy, for this wonderfully thoughtful award! 

And we want to also sincerely thank everyone who has shared our Epi-Tips and our links, videos, and information all month long. We truly appreciate our growing purple army community! Together we will make a difference. We love our Epi-dogs!

And now a around of a-paws for my very own Epi All Star, my inspiration who is such a sweet boy, Gibson. Gib, you are a true inspiration and a proud warrior. Love you, G!

Gibson Les Paul of Mystic Mountain 
 My heart dog.

  2. I had an epileptic fit for the first time 5 years ago in the middle of supermarket on my birthday of all days, wasn't fun for my kids to see it, it still haunts, I've tried many anticonvulsants and had never been able to stop the seizures. Surgery was not an option. I was still an epileptic patient, who have completely lose hope. As the problem is always embarrassing and disturbing. While surfing the internet one fateful day, I learned about Doctor on the internet called Lawson . I contacted him with some info and I ordered for the Herbal medication and used the medication for 6 months, though hesitantly, considering the fact that I have done a lot of procedure. After which I went for medical test It worked! I've been seizure free, Over a year now, I have not show any symptoms of seizure and I believe I am cure if you want to contact him at this email
