Flashback Friday #33: Circle of Love: Celebrating Life

  The Pupsters' Circle of Love

 Today is Flashback Friday here at the FiveSibes homestead and a good time to reflect upon puppies, new life, and happiness, to celebrate life.

This is our darling Pupsters - littermates Chloe, Bandit, and Wolf - at just two months! They have been best friends, The Three Muskateers, since the start, and they still love to strike this pose and kiss each other! It's been a wonderful treat to watch these babies grow up together, interact, and play...they have a wonderful relationship, and it just warms my heart to know they have had each other since birth! Our silly, loving, loveable Pupsters!

In celebration of life, today's blog is dedicated to our fellow Epi-furpal, The Mighty Quinn of the White Dog Army, who just lost his fight with Canine Epilepsy, but never lost his might. Run free, beautiful boy. You will be missed by those who loved you and you will always be remembered. We join your family in celebrating your beautiful life.

I  Am Not There

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.
~Mary Frye

Flashback Friday #22: A Tale of a Prince and His Perch 


  1. Both the beautiful poem and the wonderful photo of your three sharing the love of pack-ness touched our wounded hearts. It is the unsuspecting when you put out bowls for breakfast or do a head count at night...that the loss hits hardest.

  2. We were so sad to hear about dear Quinn but we sure will remember that beautiful soul forever.

  3. That is an amazing photo - great catch, Mom.

    We too were very sad to hear about the Mighty Quinn. He was a very lucky pup to have been welcomed into a home so very filled with love and caring devotion. He will be missed.
