Puppy Day on a Flashback Friday!

What a wonderful and fun way to welcome in the weekend, but with a Flashback to when my FiveSibes were all puppies! I always love looking back for photos to share on our Flashback Friday, but I had so much fun and lots of memories of precious moments of when my Huskies were pups. Now, if you ask them, and they are all now "seniors," they'd tell you they still are pups! At least at heart, they sure are! Now...where does the time go?!  "Puppies are the most trusting and joyous creatures on the planet. Oh, to be more like a puppy." ~Colleen Paige,  Founder of National Puppy Day For more info on National (now International) Puppy Day, founded by Colleen Paige, visit HERE. Reminder: March 26 is Purple Day® for Epilepsy Awareness. Be sure to come back and join us in our 4th Annual Blog Hop for K9 & Pet Epilepsy Awareness! Woo! I's Flashback Friday here all week! Have a pic of your pet(s) early days? Gotcha Day? Bi

Newsy Tuesday's FiveSibes Book Nook Review: Indomitable Spirit by Jewel Mathieson

You know how much we love books here! Besides being an author, I'm an avid reader since, well birth! And when a good canine book comes along, I love to share it! Today, we are reviewing Jewel Mathieson's second book featuring her beautiful colored pencil medium style of artwork of beautiful snow dogs! Jewel is a very talented self-taught artist hailing from New Zealand, and I am honored and thrilled that she chose my Gibson to be one of the amazing dogs featured in her second book,  Indomitable Spirit. DISCLOSURE Please note that this is not a paid book review. While I did receive a copy of Jewel's book, Jewel had invited my Gibson to be part of her book, and I was given the option of purchasing the beautiful original artwork of my Gibson that was featured in the book, which I did purchase. I am not a paid affiliate of Blurb. All thoughts, reviews, and comments about the book and Jewel's artwork are solely my own. "Woo! There's my brother Gibson!&quo
