Happy Birthday, Harley! Come Celebrate & Enter to Win a Signed Copy of our Book!!

Today is a very special is our beautiful alpha queen Harley's 7th Birthday! Harley is our first Siberian Husky and is my daughter's #1 girl! She knows she is the leader of the pack and enjoys "girl talk" time with my daughter and I, just hanging out on the chair or couch and giving us the occasional nod or mouth movement as we discuss everything from the day's events to movies to just how beautiful Harley is (she knows when we say "beautiful!") 

Harley is amazing...even though she was the first Husky to rule our household, she welcomed Gibson in a year later with open paws, and then when the three Pupsters came, she took them all under her wing and became a wonderful surrogate momma to them. She loves her ratty blue Peep stuffed animal and her treasured pink ball, and gets so excited to play Fetch! and Tug-o-War, and loves to "polar bear" and body slam us and the other Sibes while playing! She can run like the wind, and smiles so brightly as she does! She enjoys rides in a car and has even patrolled the highway in a police cruiser! Harley can say more with a look than a person can in a whole sentence. What she has added to our lives, words can not fully describe. We love her so much and will be celebrating today with the rest of our Husky family with toys, games, and of course, the traditional ice cream cake!

We want to thank everyone for helping us celebrate our girl's special day by hosting another drawing for a personalized copy of my FiveSibes Tale where Harley is, of course, one of the main characters in What's Wrong With Gibson? Learning About K-9 Epilepsy, a children's book illustrated by the talented artist Michelle Littler, whose work can be seen at littletoad on Etsy. Please be sure to complete the Rafflecopter below for your chance to win! The drawing will run from today until midnight on March 14th. We will post the winner's name in a future blog post along with some of Harley's party pictures! Good luck to all!
