Celebrating Eight Years of Blogging!

Beautiful portrait of my FiveSibes created for me by the very talented Cameo Anderson. Woo! Today marks our 8th Blogiversary! It has been such a wonderful eight years of sharing the lives of my FiveSibes, Siberian Huskies Harley, (now furangel) Gibson, and our Pupsters, littermates Wolf, Bandit, and Chloe, as well as seeing us launch our #LiveGibStrong K-9 Epilepsy Awarenenss and educational campaign. Over the years, we have enjoyed bringing you, our dear readers, photos and videos of our FiveSibes shenanigans, sharing the highs of sharing life with five amazing, wonderful Huskies, and the lows--sharing illnesses, injuries, and the losing our beloved Gibson. The sharing of canine news and events, news of my canine books and articles, a salute to canine heroes and highlighting Huskies in need of rescuing, as well as continued updates and information on Canine Epilepsy awareness, sharing laughs through our Merry Monday Memes, and strolling down Memory Lane on our FiveSibes Flashback

A Circle of Love

Flashing back a five years to when Wolfie was recuperating from one of his lateral imbrication surgeries for a torn CCL (cranial cruciate ligament, similar to the ACL in humans) and blown meniscus in October 2013, and his second one in July 2014. (You can read more of Wolf's story HERE ).  While resting, his sister Chloe snuggled up to keep him company...such a circle of sibling love. She knew how her brother felt as just two years earlier she blew out both of hers mid-air as she was jumping up on a bed and had lost use of both of her legs at the same time, requiring bilateral imbrication surgeries. (You can read more of her story HERE ).  How they care for one another is truly so heartwarming.

  Today, on international Epilepsy Day, we are so excited to announce the debut of the brand new “Gib Nibs” – a hand-crafted, gluten-free dog treat made by Nanette Willis, a Husky mom, United States Military wife, and the owner and baker at Sassy’s Goodies (with the Epi-dog (epileptic dog) in mind. And…a giveaway, too! Read about that a bit later in this post and be sure to enter! After several discussions between Nanette and I on what Gibson had in his diet, and the ingredients that could and should not be in an Epi-dog’s treat, Gib Nibs was born! And I am so honored that Nanette is naming them after my beloved boy, the forever #LiveGibStrong K-9 Epilepsy ambassador, Gibson!  Nanette, whose physical Sassy’s Goodies bakery is located in Springfield, MO and online store at , was excited to join in our #LiveGibStrong K-9 Epilepsy Awareness and educational campaign to help other dogs living with seizures and their caregivers, and she has graciously agreed

Pizza, Football & #FiveSibes Flashback Friday!

Woo! Welcome back to our FiveSibes Flashback Friday! It has been some long winter for so many of us. While normally, winter would be a wonderful thing having Siberian Huskies and all, but this year, Mother Nature slammed us with lots of frigid temps and ice, making it not so much fun. Plus, the sick bug has gone around my house several times, and these past few weeks I have been under the weather from my compromised immune system, for which I am currently being detoxed for (not fun). But, having my grandson and the four FiveSibes here keep me amused and happy!  In honor of today's National Pizza Day (and boy, do Harley, Wolf, Chloe, and Bandit love their "pizza bones!"), we had the best pizza we ever (pictured above) homemade by my daughter and son-in-law. Yumm-MMM! And what goes really great with pizza? Football and Puppy Bowl day! Here's our Flashback to this past Big Game Day weekend!  Our Chloe girl was catching a few Husky zzzzs during the pre-game s
