Thanksgiving Memories on #FlashbackFriday

Image
  We sure hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Wolfie here enjoyed some roasted turkey and plain sweet potato! With it being the day after Turkey Day, I thought it would be nice to relfect back on a past Thanksgiving with the Sibes! So below for today's #FlashbackFriday, we are strolling down Memory Lane to Thanksgiving 2018! Hey, that turkey looks familiar! Here it is posing with Wolfie's twin sister, Chloe. She was always my go-to model! What's Thanksgiving without some tasty turkey treats? Here are Chloe, Bandit, and Harley with their favorite handmade cookies from Sassy's Goodies!   One of my favorites was Thanksgiving morning photo when they all were waiting as I put the stuffed bird into the oven and returned to the living room to these looks...I just could imagine what they were thinking. BOL! What wonderful memories. So thankful I was their FiveSibesMom.    "Gratitude is when memory is stored in the heart and not in the mind."    ~Lionel Hampto

#FlashbackFriday: Oh, Gibbie!

  Oh, my silly Gibson! To know him was to absolutely fall in love with him. There was not a person this big almost 100-pound fluffy boy didn't like. And when he loved, he loved deeply! He fell hard for Harley and was inseparable from her his whole life. He was my heart dog and my spirit animal. Gibson was truly a lover, not a fighter. Having Canine Epilepsy and all  the issues that goes with the medications and the disease, he was a vet frequent flyer, and boy did he love those wonderful and caring vets and techs. On walks, he'd lead me right over to the veterinarian hospital's back door! He especially loved it when the caring techs came to our house to give him laser treatments for his hind end weakness (due to the epilepsy medications). And my boy was a sucker for a pretty gal! He would ply them with his infamous Gibbie kisses! And they sure returned his love! Gibson was also quite the jokester! Yes, dogs most definitley can have a sense of humor, and my boy Gib sure did
