Happy Easter!

What a glorious time of year - everything is fresh and growing; a time of rebirth and renewal. We here at the FiveSibes home wish you all a wonderful Easter Sunday.

It's been pretty exciting here as the Easter Husky came! And much to the Sibe kids' joy, left them colorful ice cream cone squeaky toys. They even had a fun little egg hunt where bits of homemade Pumpkin Pie Bone and Bunny biscuits I made for them were in with the colored eggs.


Things sure are hoppin' for the they are as the Easter Huskies performing a little holiday they would like to share with all of you! Feel free to howl and dance along!

Just as a reminder, some safety tips for us all to keep in mind while celebrating this holiday. After the baskets have been found and the egg hunt is over, while dinner is being prepared and guests are arriving, please keep an eye out for the following dangers:
  • Keep pets behind gates, doors, or in kennels as guest arrive & depart so pets don't pull a Houdini and escape
  • Easter plants and flowers, i.e. lillies
  • Easter basket grass (better yet, don't use it; use crumpled up tissue paper) 
  • Easter basket toys
  • Chocolate (and be careful where those chocolate eggs were hidden so none are left behind after the hunt)
  • Sugar-free candy, gum, cakes, etc. containing xylitol
  • Sugary desserts, candy, gum, cakes, and jellybeans
  • Coffee, tea, and other caffeinated beverages
  • Alcohol
  • Fatty gravies and foods
  • Chicken bones and small meat bones
  • Onions and garlic
Also, put guests coats and purses in a room away from your pets in case visitors have something inside they could get at. And, if your pets are excitable, put them in a quiet room or in their kennel so the noise and visitors don't overwhelm them.

For some more fun pics, check out these pups as they donned Easter bonnets and their Sunday best dress for the annual Haute Dog Easter Parade in California (our fave is Goldilocks around 1:46!)

"That was fun, but we're pooped! Time for a nap!"

  17. Looks like you had a wonderful day of Celebration! We love the idea of the Easter Husky...he can certainly carry bigger baskets filled with more yummy stuff than a little bunny can! Great photos!

  18. What fun! Those ice cream cone toys are really cute. I'm going to have to look for those.
    We had a doggie Easter Parade here in Dallas but after a 30 min drive to get there and not finding parking for 10 blocks in every direction, we gave up and went home. We saw lots of kiddos in their gear, though, and have decided that next year we'll have to plan better and arrive earlier!
    Regardless, I hope your Easter was as lovely as it looked :)

  19. Looks like lotsa fun! Hope you had a great day :)
