Flashback Friday #35: Looking Back on the Dog Days of Summer with the FiveSibes & Friends "Summer Fun" Video!

Summer in many areas is starting to wind down...Labor Day has passed, the kids are back in school, and while there are still a few days of summer-like temperatures, the cooler temps are on the way - which of course, is music to a Siberian Husky's ears! Our FiveSibes kids have had enough lounging in the air conditioned house, lying under fans, and splashing in the pool. On a few cool nights we've had here in New York (before the recent two-day heatwave, complete with high humidity) the Huskies have had lots of pep in their steps and were "woooing" more songs than they have all summer! 

Wolf is tuckered out from all the summer fun!

For this week's "Flashback Friday," we are going to take a look back at how Summertime was such a fun season for our furpals from across the globe, and as you'll see from this video slideshow, how they all "beat the heat," with lots of splashing and lounging in pools, playing with fun water toys, going boating with the family, romps along the beach and in the surf, hiking trails, squirrel watching, going for car rides, celebrating summer holidays and birthdays, running through sprinklers, playing with garden hoses, swimming in lakes, attending sports games, camping, chillin' with family and friends, and staying cool in their air conditioned homes. 

We love all the beautiful photos! The slideshow includes photos of all the entries from our recent FiveSibes "Summer Fun" Canine Photo Contest.(Note: Judges are still deliberating! They will have their votes in by September 15th, and we will announce the prize winners of the contest after that, so be sure to check back!) We received 162 photos alone for the contest! Woo! You guys all made the judges have a very hard job as each and every photo was of a beautiful furkid enjoying life! In addition to the contest entries, any photos received past the contest deadline date were also included in the video because we love our furpals! I sure hope I have every furpal's name correct, as well as their "dog house" location! I tried very hard to be sure the information was listed correctly. There are approximately 200 photos of amazing canines enjoying the summer in total! While some folks sent in one photo, and others several, they are all included in the video. (However, for the contest, only one winner per family can be selected.) This has been a true labor of love putting the show together, and the FiveSibes and I hope you'll enjoy watching grab some healthy snacks and call your furkids by your side, and enjoy watching so many of our furry friends enjoying some "Summer Fun!"
