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 Friday blog hop, to our "The Sibe Vibe" podcasts on Dog Works Radio, all has all been so important and enjoyable to me. Through this blog, I also created the FiveSibes: Siberian Husky K9 News & Reviews Facebook page, became an award-winning member of the Dog Writers Association of America, and joined the wonderful BlogPaws group, where we continue to meet and network with other amazing pet parents.
As a career photojournalist, I began this blog to connect with other pet parents and to expand on learning and sharing our experiences with the Siberian Husky breed and helping others understand the scary and sometimes rough waters known as Canine Epilepsy, and to share the message that these Epi-dogs are amazing dogs who can teach us valuable life lessons, and to let their caregivers know they are not alone when they find themselves faced with their beloved dog having a seizure.
Through this wonderful "town" known as Blogville, my FiveSibes and I have met some wonderful furfriends and their families, whom we have come to know and are proud to call our friends. We have laughed with each through comments and Emails at the funny times, and shared tears and offer support during the sad times.
Many heartfelt thanks from my FiveSibes and I to each of you for your eight years of loyal readership and friendship. Blogville is a wonderful community, and we are so proud to be part of it, and hope to be for many more years to come.
My very first blog post was on February's Pet Dental Health. And in this Flashback Friday blog post, I am sharing a photo of our first Husky and alpha queen who launched it all, Harley, showing off her pearly whites in a photo from five years ago.
