Celebrating Our Fourth Anniversary & Award Nod of "The Sibe Vibe" Dog Works Radio Show!

Happy Friday! Can you believe it's Friday already? As the summer rolls on, it seems the warm days are just flying by! This past week was a very busy, special, and a really fun one here at FiveSibes! Top highlight was seeing the 3D sonogram photo of my grandson and FiveSibes hu-brother! So exciting!  And we also had good friends visiting from Georgia, and the Sibes sure did get in a lot of fun playtime with my four-year-old honorary grandson! (They are still tuckered out!) And last Sunday was a career highlight when my "The Sibe Vibe" Dog Works Radio show executive producer and co-host Robert Forto and his wife Michele, both lead mushers and trainers at Team Ineka from Alaska (home of the "The Sibe Vibe" production studio), stopped here in New York on their visit to the lower 48 where they have been touring, hitting up concerts and rollercoasters across 6300 miles! We hosted our show not only together in person for the first time, but we broadcasted before a l

Hot News: Keeping Huskies Cool and Hydrated When Temperatures Rise

Baby, it's hot outside! Many areas of the country are seeing extreme heat conditions this summer, and weather forecasters are predicting dangerously high heat indexes of 101 to even possibly 107℉ spreading from the central United States and moving toward our Northeast area this weekend. And if it's hot for us, just imagine how it is for our dogs! Having "snowdogs," you can just imagine how unhappy they are in extreme heat. It's also important to exercise dogs early in the early mornings and late evenings to avoid the sun and heat, be careful of hot surfaces including cement, blacktop, and sand, and be aware of symptoms of possible heat exhaustion or heat stroke.  I've had several readers request that I recap ways I keep my FiveSibes cool, so today I'll be talking about how to help not just Siberian Huskies, but all dogs, beat the heat! FiveSibes Top 10 Tips to  Help Dogs Beat the Heat: Please Note: This post includes some Affiliate Links, wh

Blog the Change for Animals: Pet Fire Safety Day; Are You Prepared?

  Today is a double-duty day as it is not only my Flashback Friday Blog Hop, but also the Blog the Change for Animals and I am highlighting today's Pet Fire Safety Day in the  infographic below, and also flashing back to very special, heart-wrenching, and inspirational story about a family's home that caught on fire with their Siberian Husky trapped inside. I talk with the family and the heroic neighbor about the disaster, the brave firefighters who helped to save Nanuk, tips on pet fire safety, and about the community that all came forward to help a Husky and family in need. The American Kennel Club (AKC) and ADT Security Services joined together in 2007 when the first Pet Fire Safety Day debuted. Next year will be the 10th Anniversary of this important day to remind us all about preparing and planning for our pets safety should a fire ever occur. While we all hope and pray a fire never starts in our homes and that our family and furfamily members are

Mother of Huskies in the Game of Bones...

Winter is coming... (As the FiveSibesMom, a mother of five Huskies, and a total Game of Thrones fangirl, how could I resist buying this perfect tee?!) As an Amazon Affiliate, you can purch ase one of these amazing tees through our following link at no extra cost to you (but we will receive a teeny compensation):         ***PLEASE...remind people to never get a Siberian Husky if they do not educate themselves on the breed’s specific needs! They are not novelties! They are so much more than their beauty. Huskies deserve a loving, caring FOREVER home. Just because folks see one on TV does not mean they should get one!***
