Take-Out on a #FiveSibes Flashback Friday!

Flashback Photo: Autumn 2009

While looking back over photos of my FiveSibes, I came to a favorite (aren't they all?) of mine...and I was amazed that it was from nine years ago already! I remember this day as clear as if  it were yesterday. Time is funny like that, isn't it? I always like opening my kitchen window while using the oven to cool off the house, and always love it when one or all of my FiveSibes pop their head in the window! Sometimes, they even get a treat or two through the window! It always reminds me of a drive-thru window! While I do feature memes on our Merry Meme Monday posts, I could not resist putting words to this photo!

Do you have a window your pets love to peek in through?





YOU'RE INVITED! Come join in our weekly stroll down Memory Lane in our weekly FiveSibes Flashback Friday Blog Hop! Whether you share a photo of your pet (fave family, vacation, and landscape flashback pics welcome, too) from yesterday or yesteryear, let's have fun looking back over the amazing lives of our pets and past memories! What a wonderful way to kick off the weekend, too! We know how busy everyone one is, so the blog hop is open all week, so join in any time!

#FiveSibes Merry Meme Monday!

It's Monday, and we're back with our FiveSibes Merry Memes! Periodically, we host a Merry Meme Fun Caption Contest on our FiveSibes: Siberian Husky K9 News & Reviews page, where we feature a fantastic photo submitted by our readers on our social media accounts. Then, after the votes are all in, we turn it into a fun meme for all to share, and we highlight them here on our blog! 

Today, we have a double feature! Our most popular contest so far, we had so many votes for the tie-breaker captions, that I am featuring them both! The beautiful star of the photo is "Ruby" the rescued Siberian Husky who is not only a performance dog, but she also is an Epi-dog! As you can see, Ruby does not let having Canine Epilepsy stop her from doing what she loves!


You can follow the photographer Aleks HERE.



In this caption, coincidentally another Ruby who is an Epi-dog, weighed in for a caption that captured the hearts of all the Epi-dog community!


You can visit captioner Ruby, the (Epi) Therapy Dog HERE.

What great memes! 

Dog parents, photographers, and captioner creators are all so creative! It's a fun way to show off those cool pics of our dogs and enjoy some fun captions! 

Would you like to participate? While we focus on Siberian Huskies, we have lots of furpals and we would like to include you all! All you ahve to do is somehow incorporate a Siberian Husky (toy, photo, plush, etc.) with your pet in a photo that would be great for a meme! Here's how to submit:


Here's some past ones:


You can also check out other #FiveSibes Merry Memes HERE!


Enter your Husky, Malamute, or other Northern Breed dog (or pet "with" one - think plush?!) pics for some fun!
Looking forward to seeing them!

Picking a Puffy Pumpkin on a Flashback Friday!

Flashback Photo of Gibson, Autumn 2014

Ohhhh, that face. That sweet face. Gibson's face still melts my heart whenever I see a photo of him. It is hard to believe this is our third Autumn without my big, silly, loving, wooly boy. While Harley is the alpha queen, his true love, and the Pupsters' surrogate momma, Gibson was the glue that held them all together as pack. Where he went, they all followed. If it was chilly, they all huddled around him. If it was hot and he dug a massive hole under our maple tree, they all followed and dug neighboring holes to lay all around him. He was Harley's "hubby" and the Pupsters' big brother. While Huskies are known to be pretty silly, Gibson was the king of making me laugh. And he always seemed to know exactly when a laugh was needed. Even with all his challenges of living with Canine Epilepsy, if he was a human (and at times I believe he thought he was), he would have had a brave smile on his face, making sure everyone around him was laughing and feeling happy. That was my boy. 




Oh, how Gibson loved stuffed toys, and he really loved holidays; from their birthday parties (with ice cream cake) to Christmas season, and even Halloween, he enjoyed it all! Here in this Flashback photo from four years ago, I had just gifted all FiveSibes with stuffed pumpkins for Halloween, and Gib kept a (polar bear) paw on his! 


While Harley, Wolf, Bandit, and Chloe are doing well and keeping me entertained and loved, Gibson's essence and personality is always missed. But, how nice to be able to look back at the many photos journaling their lives and be able to see him once again, like a brief visit, and relive his amazing qualities and the many, many smiles he gave me over his almost 10 years. How blessed I feel to have had such a special dog in my life, and to be the FiveSibesMom.

Five Little Pumpkins for my FiveSibes, especially for my silly Gib:

Wacky Water Dancing on a Hot Autumn Day!


Apparently Mother Nature does not want summer to be over here in the Northeast, with temps in the high 80s and humidity at almost 100, what's a snow dog to do? While washing down the deck, our alpha queen Harley dove right in for some wacky water dancing! When it's hot out, what makes a better partner than a spray of cool water to cha-cha-cha with?!

Are you having wacky weather, too? 

We are joining the Pet Parade Blog Hop today, hosted by DashKitten, Bionic Basil, and Barking From The Bayou!

Flashback Friday Night Fun With the FiveSibes!

Flashback Photo ~ August 2017


My dear Siberian Huskies...the working breed...


If you know Siberian Huskies, they are full of personality and can be pretty silly. It was pretty easy to put words in their canine mouths! I so love these pups. They make TV night (and every day) very entertaining!

Snuggle Buddies on a Flashback Friday!



Flashback Photo ~ Spring 2016

Sometimes you just need to snuggle up and give your best buddy a big hug! Wolf, my resident sleepyhead Husky, looked just way too cute snoozing, so that big stuffed red frog just had to leap on over and give him some love! The look on Wolfie's face is priceless! And I sure did get a chuckle or two myself!  ;-)

A friend is worth more."
