Dreams of Christmas on a Winter Solstice #FiveSibes Flashback Friday

Image
'Tis the season for peace and heavenly dreams...and a time when Santa Paws peeks in on all good Sibes before coming on Christmas Eve to deliver treats and toys for all good furry girls and boys!  In this Flashback Friday photo from 2015, one of my favorites, our girl Bandit sleeps peacefully under the Christmas tree, waiting for the big day to arrive. The feeling of seeing my dogs happy, healthy, and sleeping so peacefully is a gift in itself. We here at FiveSibes wish you and yours happiness, health, and peace this Christmas season. In celebration of today's Winter Solstice...we here at FiveSibes are lighting a candle for our dear furangel Gibson, who left us in December of 2015, but never ever forgotten. To read my "Remembering Gibson" on his 3rd Anniversary at the Rainbow Bridge, post, please visit HERE .     You're Invited!

πŸ’œ Remembering Gibson πŸ’œ

Gibson Les Paul of Mystic Mountain "What we have once enjoyed we can never lose; all that we love deeply becomes a part of us." ~Helen Keller Today dawned gloomily with the heavens crying crystalized tears of frozen rain. Seems very appropriate for the third anniversary of my beloved Gibson earning his furangel wings. It is surreal that it is now three years. One month after my dear mother passed. I can close my eyes and be transported back to that day...that season...but choose not to. Gibson was not only a big fluffy wooly Siberian Husky boy (tipping scales throughout his life from 98 to 120 back to 98 pounds), but he had heart and soul bigger than the sky. He loved life. He never let Canine Epilepsy keep him from enjoying all that life offered. I am so proud he became, and still is, the face of Canine Epilepsy and the positive and inspirational message of hope and how amazing these dogs are. His courage and zest for life is what I hold dear and celebrate when

Wait! Who Sees You When You're Sleeping, Wrapping, or Being Naughty or Nice?

Wolf realized that apparently Santa Paws is not the only one who sees them when they're sleeping, wrapping, naughty, or nice! Can you spot who is keeping an eye on Wolfie in this Flashback Friday photo from 2014?! And...did your keen eye notice our cool wrapping paper? Yup! Featuring none other than our cartoonized FiveSibes! Pretty cool, right?!   (You can tell it's the howlidays as we seem to have a little gift wrapping theme going on with our posts! Wednesday's post was all about wrapping up Christmas)!  "When we recall Christmas past, we usually find that the simplest things - not the great occasions - give off the greatest glow of happiness." ~Bob Hope   We Want to Know! So, keeping with our Flashing Back theme, also from 2014, brothers Wolf and Gibson would love to know... You're Invited!

Wrapping Up Christmas, Husky Style!

 "Woo. I like this paper." Woo! We love the holidays here at FiveSibes! No matter what we are doing, they love to join in. So it's now time for wrapping and I sure do have some pretty awesome elves, Harley and Bandit, to help me! (Wolf and Chloe decided to settle down for a long winter's nap, instead)! "Are we done yet? Is it treat time?" We are a bunch of foodies here, especially during the holiday season, so when all the wrapping was done for the day (still have lots more to do), my FiveSibes were ready for their treat. So it was a yummy cheeseburger snack for my hungry Husky elves!  "Nommm-nomm! Thanks, Mom!"  Have you had a chance to check out our FiveSibes™#LiveGibStrong  Gift Guide for Epi-Dogs (and all dogs really!)?  We have gathered up a collection of some really cool items for your pup we think you'll love to check out!  Click HERE to view our very special Gift Guide!

'Tis the Season for Greeting Cards! Recycle Those Used Stamps To Help Dogs in Need!

Christmas Flashback Moment: Wolf 2015 Shhhhh...we're strolling down a snowy Memory Lane and peeking through the Flashback window to the inside of our FiveSibes homestead at Christmastime, when our Huskies were all excited about getting and receiving holiday cards! (I always joke, but am quite serious, they received FAR more cards than us humans do!)   Flashback Friday Photo Moment: Wolf & Gib 2014 I t's fond past moments like these that brings loved ones back for a brief visit. While all my FiveSibes seem to get more excited during the holidays, Gibson was our holiday Husky elf! He seemed to always enjoy sporting his jingling-jangling reindeer collar (or humoring his hu-mom!) and spreading Christmas cheer wherever he strolled! Greeting cards are a favorite of mine. I will admit, that since the passing of my mother and Gibson three years ago, I hit the pause button on sending out greetings. In the top photo of Wolf with their many cards in their "mai
