Can the Longest Total Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse in a Century Trigger a Seizure?

Image
Wolf and Harley love laying out under the full moon! Today - July 27, 2018 - the longest "Blood Moon" total lunar eclipse in a century will start at 3:30 PM EDT and last until 5:13 PM EDT, with the "time of greatest eclipse" at 4:21 p.m. EDT, according to  EarthSky.org . Plus, Mars will be moving to the closest spot to Earth in almost 15 years, so you may catch a glimpse of it, too! While it will not be visible here in North America, it will be from many other areas, and it can also be watched online. How? Check out details HERE.   Our Flashback Friday:  My Gibson in 2015 featured in a poster from 2017.

The Power of Puppy Love With The Pupsters on a #FiveSibes Flashback Friday!

Image
Our FiveSibes Pupsters! Ahhh, is there anything sweeter than puppy breath? Today, we are fondly flashing back to when our Pupsters, who are now 10, were just little two-month-old pups! The bond they formed as puppies and have kept over the years is just amazing. What a joy to see these siblings always have the love and security of each other, never to be separated! They warm my heart today just as they did when they first joined our family! What a joy! "Happiness is a warm puppy." ~Charles M. Schulz "Joy is raising three puppies together!" ~Dorothy Wills-Raftery I have heard folks say "you shouldn't raise littermates together" - and I say hogwash to that!
