Mark your calendars! If you are visiting the Long Island/New York/Tri-State Area on Saturday, July 18, be sure to stop over at the Garden City Park Petco™ where I will be doing a book signing and handing out information on Canine Epilepsy Awareness at The Empire State Snow Dogs Club's first Canine Epilepsy Expo & Fundraiser

At my booth, I look forward to meeting everyone and will have copies of informational handouts from various Canine Epilepsy organizations, as well as my own books available for purchase, which I'll be happy to sign!

EPIc Dog Tales: Heartfelt Stories About Amazing Dogs Living & Loving Life With Canine Epilepsy, a 264 page beautiful color coffee-table style book filled with personal stories of 124 amazing dogs with Canine Epilepsy, plus a vast resource section.

The FiveSibes™ Tale What's Wrong With Gibson?

on the true life rescue of abused, abandoned, and then saved Siberian Husky found on a snowy Christmas Day! (a portion is donated to "Buddy's Buddies" fund through the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine to help with Buddy's foster mother with expenses, and then those of other pups in need.) You can tune in to my "The Sibe Vibe" episode featuring Buddy's foster Mama Shay HERE.

We'll have our #LiveGibStrong K-9 Epilepsy Awareness bracelets, too! $2 each, with $1 from every bracelet going to Canine Epilepsy Resources/Epil-K9 Foundation's "Emma's Seizure Fund!"

Also at my booth, I'll be handing out samples of the delicious, wholesome, "Gibbie Snacks" ~  named after my Epi-Husky Gibson, and formulated and baked with love by House Woof Dog Biscuits, a branch of the Edelweiss Bakery in Vermont, USA. Gibbie Snacks, while all dogs will love them, were created with the Epi-dog in mind, and are free of wheat, salt, rosemary, and preservatives! Be sure to stop by and treat your dog to one, and pick up info about this fabulous dog-friendly bakery. 

For every bag of Gibbie Snacks purchased from House Woof's online store, they donate $1 to The Wally Foundation-Canine Epilepsy, who offer financial assistance for purchase of medications for families/fosters/rescues of dogs diagnosed with idiopathic epilepsy.

We have some a great basket filled with FiveSibes and "The Sibe Vibe" gifts and Paws to People: Bridges to Cures (p)awesome roll-up dog mat and water bottle!

Our boy Wolf supports our MWDs!
Have you seen the movie "Max?" Wish you could help out our U.S. Military Service Dogs? There will be a collection booth for items for our Military Service Dogs to be donated to help teams via the U.S. War Dogs Association. You can check out the Amazon Wish List HERE, or buy an item at Petco and come on out and drop it into the box! If you can't make it to the Expo, you can order from
the Wish List and have it sent. Contact Jodi at snowusin(at)gmail(dot)com for an address! 

All items collected will be shipped to the president of the U.S. War Dogs Association for distribution to the K9 teams! Our U.S. K9 soldiers thank you! 

I will also be taping various segments for this month's episode of  my "The Sibe Vibe" Dog Works Radio show!

While there, you can meet The (gorgeous) Husky Brothers, stars of their own book and of Facebook! Those gorgeous boys of Jodi Ekberg I chatted with on a previous episode of "The Sibe Vibe" HERE. (Please be sure to read next post about "Fighting for Frankie").

Meet Petco adoptable dogs! (And maybe even consider making one a forever member of your family!)
