Happy Birthday, America!

Woo! It is the Fourth of July! And Harley and the FiveSibes are looking forward to enjoying some BBQ treats!  In honor of this day, we would like to celebrate our country's birthday by sharing this video we created last year that features so many of our furpals from across America! So go get an ice cream cone or two (vanilla please, and don't forget to share with your furpals!), wave some American flags, and enjoy these beautiful "Patriotic Pets on Parade!"

While you are enjoying all of the festivities, please be sure to keep our pets safe! While the fireworks displays are beautiful, many pets do not enjoy them. It is also a time of family parties and BBQs and also a time when many pets can get loose and run away. In this month's issue of American Pet Magazine, if you flip to page 5, I have an article Honoring & Calming Pets During Summer's Patriotic Holidays, with some tips on keep our furkids safe during these patriotic holidays. Here's a glimpse of the article:

July Fourth usually always brings with it lots of hot summertime weather. Also in this issue, you can read my Top 20 Ways to Keep Your Pets Save in Hot Weather on pages 20 and 21 - and  you may notice a familar FiveSibe face there  all decked out in patriotic colors - our very own miss Harley! To read this article and the rest of American Pet Magazine, visit them at their website at Here's a sneak peak:

So, whatever you do and wherever you go with your furkids this Fourth of July, have a fun, happy, and safe Fourth of July!

Happy Birthday, America!

  1. We hope you all have a Happy Fourth too. Lightning says he was about a month late for last year's parade, but he is wooing his hoorahs, or is that woorahs, for sure this year.

    Happy Independence Day and Happy Birthday to the U.S.A.!!!

    Woos = Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  2. Great video! I love the music too! Makes me want to go march around the house! Have a great day!

  3. I love the video. While watching it I fnished almost an entire tub of yoghurt. Hehe. I am with Finn, I feel like marching now too. We released a 'movie' blockbuster too, for this special occasion. See it from our blog ;)

    I'll be back,

  4. Happy Independence Day everyone!

  5. What a fun memory the pet parade did an awesome job on the parade video & contest. Bailey had an absolute blast withe the prize he won! Happy 4th to all!

  6. That sure was a great parade. We are good friends with Baily and some of the other doggies and the three kitties. Great job. Happy 4th to all of you.

  7. Hi Y'all,

  11. hey FiveSibes,

    Happy Independence Day! I love seeing you pups all decked out in your patriotic gear! You all look so great! Thanks for re-posting your Independence Day video. It is so fun to watch and see all the patriotic pups, even me! :->

    Congratulations to your mom on her two articles! That is great, and her articles are so informative and very helpful.

    Hope you and yours had a great 4th of July holiday!


  12. Hope you guys had a great 4th of July :)

  13. Great advice not just on the 4th but through the weekend because the noise and partying, at least in our town, continues. And warm weather advice is a great reminder that it only takes a very short time for things to get out of hand. Hope your holiday sparkled!
