Harley, Wolf, Chloe, and Bandit all gathered around as they joined with Gibson's spirit to once again promote Canine Epilepsy through The Purple Pumpkin Project (you can also find them on Facebook).
So, why is Gibson's pumpkin purple?
For Canine Epilepsy Awareness! As I've written in previous years, The Purple Pumpkin Project is to get folks asking the question "Why is your pumpkin purple?" to jumpstart conversations about epilepsy.
Why the color purple?
Purple is the international color of epilepsy awareness.
How did the Purple Pumpkin Project start?
Here's my video that helps explain it, as well as showcasing many of our festive and creative furpals - both Epis and non - from across the globe who came out to help support Canine Epilepsy Awareness (you may recognize a few familiar beautiful faces):
#TalkAboutIt - PLEASE!
Here at FiveSibes we are also joining the Epilepsy Foundation (Epilepsy.com) and actor Greg Gundberg's #TalkAboutIt.org campaign in hopes of keeping the conversations going so children and adults have a better understanding of epilepsy and not to be afraid - whether it is for themselves, their friends, family members, or pets. Education is key! So, please, join us in talking about Canine Epilepsy and how there is much support and information now available to help families who have an Epi-dog so they do not feel alone and scared.
