Another Newsy Tuesday!

Gibson woooing his birthday and anniversary wishes!

The past two days have been special ones here for the FiveSibe's hu-parents. Yesterday was my birthday and today is my husband's and my 30th wedding anniversary! We've received tons of Husky hugs and Sibe kisses from the furkids! Now, there is so much news to share and catch up on today! 

I have to share????
First, we had entered a giveaway over at All Things Dog Blog and won! Wow, it was a box of treats that arrived in the mail for the the FiveSibes, who had a blast checking it all out!

The three pupsters had lots of fun sniffing out the goods, curious as to what could be in the box!

Gibson even got a turn at sniffing the evidence.

Wooooo! It's a whole box of 
 goodies that made their day!

They had a blast playing tug-o-war with the rope twist toy and couldn't get enough of the tasty Cesar softie treats! 

The surprise package sure made the FiveSibes' day! Many thanks to All Things Dog! Be sure to pop over and check out some of the pawsome giveaways.

We also want to say "Thank You" to Peaceful Dog Blog for bestowing upon us the "Versatile" blogger award! Please be sure to stop by their blog and say "hi!" from the FiveSibes! Previously, we had earned two other awards we mentioned in an earlier post, the "Versatile" and also the "Insirational" blogger awards, and with all three, we need to pass them along to other bloggers we feel deserve them...and I have to say, there are just too many great blogs out there that I can not choose. I think that another blogger pal has the right idea when they received theirs, they posted that all of their fellower bloggers were deserving and should have the award bestowed upon them, so since there's no possible way to select just 15, I would like to do the same and pass it along to all my blogger pals...the awards are pasted on our sidebar, so please, feel free to copy it for your own blog as you deserve it! To accept the blog, we do need to tell you seven things about us, so please visit our past Newsy Tuesday post from July to check out that info! And truly, and "wooooo-ly" we are so touched by the award and sincerely appreciate receiving it!

A couple weeks ago we entered a bid for a necklace over at the Crossed Paws blog to raise funds to help pets in need. We were so pleased to find out that we had won our bid for a very unique pawprint necklace offered by Road Dog Tales...and our beautiful necklace designed by Deanne arrived the other day and it has FiveSibes engraved on the flipside and is just beautiful! And check out that classy packaging! Love it! Please be sure to stop over and visit Road Dog Tales and check out Deanne's fabulous metal designs, and tell her FiveSibes sent you! 

As you may have seen in an earlier, post, last week we headed over to the U.K. for an absolutely awesome virtual book launch party by Carol Wyer for Miniskirts and Laughter Lines. Well, our Miss Chloe, decked out in her requested mini-skirt, traveled many miles by land, air, and sea, to join in the party fun and was greeted so warmly by Carol and her guests! They do know how to throw a party! She even got to bring home a doggie bag!  :-)  For some fun and lots of laughs (and you'll see Chloe there on the mini-skirt contest "winners" page), pop over to Facing50WithHumor blog and be sure to tell Carol that the @FiveSibesMom sent you!

  20. Hello Five Sibes and your mom, thank you for coming to visit so I've come to return the visit. You have a fine blog - goes without saying really with five sibes - and I love your idea of newsy Tuesday. Hope you had a lovely few days for your double celebrations. Master and Misery have barkdays on consecutive days so they like to have double the fun too.

    I will add you to my blogroll, but unless Misery improves I only get round a couple of times a month :( but I usually have a catch-up read.
