I'd like to once again share my FiveSibes Purple Day® video:
I'd also like to take this opportunity to welcome House Wolf K-9 Dog Biscuits to the Purple Day Ambassadors! Representing Vermont, they have joined in the "Live Gib Strong" K-9 Epilepsy Awareness effort in many ways, including hosting a Purple Day event at their Edelweiss Bakery where they donated 100% of the proceeds from purple cupcakes, and 10% of the day's lunch, beverage, and pastry sales to The Wally Foundation for Canine Epilepsy that offers possible financial assistance to families, fosters, and rescues of dogs diagnosed with idiopathic epilepsy.
AND they also created the wholesome "Gibbie Snacks" -- my Gibson's namesake treat -- that with every bag purchased from their online store, House Wolf donates $1 to The Wally Foundation. What a great effort on behalf of Canine Epilepsy Awareness!
Tonight, I had the pleasure of precording our special Purple Day episode of my "The Sibe Vibe" with Susan Sehi-Smith of the White Dog Diary blog, who is also the president/founder of the Paws to People: Bridges to Cures organization, all about Canine Epilepsy, her furangel Epi-dog, The Mighty Quinn, comparative research studies, and her Paws to People. Lots of great information. We'll be posting the link to
the show on Sunday, March 30. (I will come back and update it here, too, so everyone can listen in at their leisure).
Here are of my two prior "The Sibe Vibe" Dog Works
Radio shows where we talk all about Canine Epilepsy featuring Marion Mitchell of the Canine Epilepsy Resources and co-owner of the EPIL-K9 list, and Rick Selwood of The Wally Foundation.
Many thanks also to fellow Blogger Love is being owned by a Husky blog for helping to promote Purple Day! Stop by and say hi - it's a great, fun blog to visit!
And...my really BIG exciting announcement for today is for my soon-to-be-released book on Epi-dogs from across the world titled EPIc Dog Tales: Heartfelt Stories About Dogs Living & Loving Life With Canine Epilepsy. While I had hoped to have my release timed with today, we are not quite there yet and I do not want to rush this very special book. At this time, I do not have a specific release date \as we are in the editing and layout stages, it will be in the very near future. We'll be sure to post info on when you can order at that time from our indie publishing company ArcticHouse Publishing. A percentage of proceeds post-production costs will be donated to the Canine Epilepsy Resources "Emma's Fund." But for now, here's a sneak preview of the cover:
We hope on this Purple Day, people join together to bring awareness, hope, and support to all those who are living life with seizures. We honor them all.
