#FindYourFido With #FiveSibes and the ASPCA! Plus A Gift Pack Giveaway!

Thinking about adding a new furry member to your family? Always dreamed of having a Siberian Husky, but did not know where to go to adopt one? We may be closing out October, but any month is a really good time to adopt!  We here at FiveSibes have partnered up with the ASPCA for their #FindYourFido campaign to encourage adoption and share some amazing rescue Huskies and their stories as they wait for their loving forever home! Be sure to enter our Giveaway for an  ASPCA #FindYourFido Gift Pack  at the end of this post! According to the ASPCA, "around 3.3 million dogs enter U.S. shelters each year. With October being Adopt A Shelter Dog Month, the ASPCA just launched our #FindYourFido initiative for the second year in a row to raise awareness about dog adoption." So, who is Fido? Fido is a cardboard cut-out who is an ambassador just waiting to help spread the word about shelter and rescue dogs! You can visit the ASPCA page HERE and download an image of Fido

Newsy Tuesday: #FiveSibes Book Nook Time! "Alaskan Holiday" by Debbie Macomber!

What is FiveSibesMom reading? In addition to being a writer, I love to read! No surprise there! And romances, action/romances, and westerns have always been my favorite genres to read and write!  I have a slew of favorite authors and genres of books in my library, but one of my all-time favorite authors is Debbie Macomber, also known as "the official storyteller of Christmas!" I'm such a fangirl of her books, especially any one on Christmas, as well as her TV Christmas movies, the book series and TV series "Cedar Cove" that aired on Hallmark Channel. Her books are sweet, slice of life stories that always leave me feeling the warm and fuzzies! So, when I heard her new holiday book, Alaskan Holiday , was just released, I immediately pre-ordered it! And Northern Breed dog lovers, check out that pretty awesome cover design! I am so excited to now have this book in my hot little hands and am, of course, enjoying the story.  Just a few books from my Debbie

Why We Have Purple Pumpkins on Halloween!

Flashback Photo: Gibson, October 201 5 Gibson, in a favorite photo, 2015, going for the treats!   Since Halloween is right around the corner, I thought it was perfect today to Flashback to when my Epi-Warrior, Gibson, was here and we celebrated with purple pumpkins! Why purple? As part of the Epilepsy Foundation's Purple Pumpkin Project, one of our pumpkins - Gibson's - was purple for Canine Epilepsy Awareness to get people talking about dogs living with seizures.  Flashback Photo: October 2017           We continue to show Gibson's purple pumpkin in both his memory, and for our FiveSibes #LiveGibStrong K-9 Epilepsy Awareness & Education Campaign and #Paws4Purple program with Purple Day® for Epilepsy & The Anita Kaufmann Foundation to show others that these amazing dogs can live a happy life doing whatever non-Epi dogs do, and, like Gib, they love and embrace life so much, it leaves us all truly inspired. So, how did the Purple Pumpkin Proj
