Shave a Husky? Don't Do it!

Image
Pin me! When the warmer weather arrives, I hear so many folks talking about shaving their Siberian Huskies . When I hear this, I want to hold up that big red STOP sign, and say, "Please, Don't !"  While you may be hot looking at a Siberian Husky with all its fur - especially a wooly - but trust me, it does not bother him or her!   Unless specifically for medical reasons (as recommend by your vet), it is never a good idea to shave a Husky. Last summer, after having a conversation with my groomer about shaving Huskies, a double-coated breed of dog, I realized just how popular this idea is with folks, groomers included. I have also had readers send me photos of their dogs that had been shaved ~ without their permission ~ and concerned about the regrowth of their hair. It seems when the thermometer rises, people are tempted to shave their Husky (or northern-breed dog) .  L ast s pring , after Gibson was finished being groomed, I did a photoshoot with him an

#FlashbackFriday Moment: Bandit, the Toy Thief

   Flashback ~ Bandit ~ 2016   “A Smile Is Happiness You’ll Find  Right Under Your Nose.” ~Tom Wilson     Oh, sweet Bandit. Given her name as a puppy, little did we know how well-suited of a moniker it was for her! Bandit was first, a very fast Husky, and for sure the best at toy thievery! As soon as one of the other FiveSibes turned their backs on a toy--for even a moment--she would dash in and snatch it, adding it to her pile under and around her!

Just a Sleepy Sibe Afternoon on a #FlashbackFriday

Image
 #Flashback ~ Wolfie ~ 2021   After a sunny afternoon of play with my grandchildren, Wolfie stretched out on the cool green grass for a mid-afternoon nap. Is there anything more heartwarming and beautiful than a dog, relaxed, safe, and happy? My heart always felt so full seeing all of my FiveSibes happy and content, and I always felt so thankful for their well being.   "Afternoon Blessings:  Make time to stop and be thankful for all that is beautiful in your life." ~Unknown         ♥︎ Memories are Visits for the Heart. ♥︎          The Linky tool will open all week for you to join us in the Blog Hop and share pics from yesteryear or yesterday, include our badge and *link back to us*, and  be sure to hop along and visit the other blogs and don't forget to leave a nice comment!  Happy Friday!            Back to our Home Page and Don't Forget to Visit Our Other Pages, including Our #LiveGibStrong On-Line K-9 Epilepsy Resource Page.

Six Months...

Image
     Flashback ~ Wolfie ~ May 2021 Six months ago tomorrow, the fourth, I lost my beautiful baby boy at almost 14 years of age. Yes, he was a senior, but he was also my baby, and the baby of my FiveSibes pack. Even though he and his siblings, Bandit and Chloe, were littermates and same age, and he had the strong nickname Wolf, he was just a big, fluffy, baby! I miss his "talking" and him lying next to me the most. I loved reaching over and feeling his fluffy white fur during the night, or early in the morning. I can still feel how warm and content I felt knowing he was right next to me. I honestly can say I no longer sleep as soundly as I did when he was with me. Whenever I was sick, Wolf was there by me. This is the first time I have something major coming up that he won't be here for to give me calm--I am having a total hip replacement surgery. Once I would look forward to his being by my side, and just a mere reach down to feel his fur made me feel better. So this is m
