He Had Me at "Woo" on Flashback Friday!


Today, my trip down Memory Lane is of my wooly boy, Gibson. Flashing back to April of 2006, when my sweet baby boy was just an adorable, already sweet, four month old puppy, and the second Siberian Husky to join our family! As soon as I saw him and picked him up, I couldn't put him down, and he didn't want me to! He had such captivating, soulful eyes, and I only had eyes for him! We snuggled and slept together on my recliner, with him on my lap (at four months he was already a good size and took up the length of me!) for the whole night. I was SO in love with this boy, a special love that has captured my heart for eternity. It was love at fluffy, wooly first sight! When I saw him come bounding out, doing a puppy version of what was to become his famous Gibbie Hip-Hop dance, I knew my Husky had just chosen me! He was so happy, something he would be always be throughout his too-short life...a very happy Husky! I honestly believe he was born that way! That day when we first met, he came running over - directly to me - his tongue was waving out to the side, and those beautiful crystal blues eyes...with the one parti-eye that looked as though he was winking at me! A big ball of fluff who stole my heart. 

He had me at "woo."

 And speaking of a Siberian Husky puppy, do you know of someone who is thinking about adding a Siberian Husky to their family? 

Please be sure to have them check out my two-part series on this magnificent breed  "Is a Siberian Husky the Right Breed For You?" in the online Kings River Life Magazine. Read Part 1 from the January 2 issue HERE. You can also link to it from my January 3 blog post HERE. And Part 2 comes out tomorrow in their January 9 issue!

  1. I don't think they are right for me, but they sure are beautiful dogs. It's easy to see why they are so loved.

    Each of my dogs is special to me, but I've had two that were my heart dogs. They leave a void that can leave you feeling a but broken.

    3. Thank you...I'm so sorry for your loss as well...I fear that sadness will always be there...tucked in our hearts, coming out to remind us of what once was...how I miss him.

  3. That's funny, Thunder (who reminded us so much of Gibson despite the wooliness) came to us at four months old too. He had all of the family at woo too:) With your recent devastating loss, it is good to do these flashbacks, as they make you smile through the tears. We do the same with our Angels. We keep hoping someMom is thinking about adding another pup here, but so far she isn't being very proactive:(

    1. You are so right...at first I didn't think I could go back and look at Gibson's photos, but I miss him so much, it makes it feel like he's here...almost. I have not been able to do the video yet, I cry at about the second clip. One day. For now, photos keep him close. And he was such a character...always made me smile. I hope he and Thunder are together. <3 Puppy...?

  6. I love puppy pics! What a cutie! My late dog was a big one, could hardly lift him by 6 months, but he was such a sweetheart and loved to cuddle. Will always miss that boy.
