T he words “seizures” and “Canine Epilepsy” can certainly drum up a lot of fear for caregivers of dogs who suddenly find themselves faced with a situation where their beloved dog appears to suddenly have a seizure, or has odd movements and behavior that maybe they suspect is a seizure.    After the seizure passes, it leads one to ask many questions, including, “What just happened to my dog?”, “What caused the seizure?” and the top question, "Will my dog be okay?"    The important thing to remember is to remain calm, and to no

#FlashbackFriday: Bandit and the Three Beds

FiveSibes #Flashback ~ Bandit & Chloe ~ 2015   Oh, these Pupsters! Bandit was always, always the tricky one...her moniker fit her thieving ways! Whether it was new toys for all, which she stole and laid on, or new beds for all...Bandit, as quick as Robin Hood, stole it all. Only she didn't give to the poor, she gave to herself! And funny part of it all--all of the others let her do it! Every now and again alpha queen Harley would stroll over and snatch one back I think to just remind them who was really the boss of the pack family, and when she did, Bandit would roll over and surrender! But only to Harley, their "momma." The other two Pupster siblings, Chloe and Wolf, either ignored her, or if you can picture them rolling their blue eyes thinking "Whatever!"-- they did!  Pictured above, is our dear Bandit making herself at home on the pile of new beds I had just brought home. Like Goldilocks, she had tested each one out first, then watched me as I stacked t

How Many Sleeping Sibes Do You See?

  FiveSibes #Flashback ~ Circa 2014   Can you count how many FiveSibes are in this picture?  One is a little hidden!    This is typically how my living room looked whenever I walked in! Sometimes, every seat would be taken! I sure do miss these days.  No one told me how fast a decade and a half would fly by...   While I miss my FiveSibes desperately, seeing these moments frozen in time brings me right back, and leaves a smile on my face and my heart filled with love.   Enjoy those moments. Take those photos. Feel blessed to have so much love and to love so much. They are not in our lives nearly long enough, but surely long enough to fill our hearts.      💛 Memories Are Visits For the Heart 💛     ~ J O I N  U S! ~       The Linky tool will open all week for you to join us in the Blog Hop and share pics from yesteryear or yesterday! Please include our badge and *link back to us*, and  be sure to hop along down Memory Lane with us and visit the other blogs. Don't forget to l

FiveSibes: Red Nose Day to Help End Child Poverty

    Is your nose red? Don a red nose—like my FiveSibes did in 2017— in support of ending child poverty across the globe. Together, we can be the change for children in need by joining together to reach Red Nose Day's then goal to "end child poverty--one nose at a time." Here, at FiveSibes, our Huskies joined us humans in spreading the word and mission. We hope you will, too! Did you know?  "In the US alone, around 12 million children – that’s nearly 1 in 6 – live in poverty. Globally, about 663 million children are deprived of one or more basic needs, like food, shelter, safe drinking water, sanitation, healthcare or education."  Today, Red Nose Day does even more. They believe in creating a healthy future for children.  How? Within "holistic balance" of their four pillars: 1. Safe, 2. Healthy, 3. Educated, and  4. Empowered.       According to the organization, " In nine years, we’ve raised more than $324 million to help end
