Canidae's Grain-Free Pure Heaven Biscuits Review #ChewyInfluencer

Harley checks out the new bag of treats! "Treats!" Okay, when we say that magical word, whose dog does NOT come running?!  I think it's my FiveSibes favorite word! They know right away what it means and automatically assume the seated position, with Chloe, of course, being very verbal wanting her yummy snack! Whether it's the shake of the treat container, or the sound of a treat bag being opened, these pups know something delicious is coming!   Wolf sniffs out the biscuits. "Woo...(sniff-sniff)... do I smell salmon and sweet potatoes?!" I am very choosy here about what my Huskies are given to eat for both food and treats. So,when I heard about Canidae's Grain-Free Pure Heaven Biscuits from, I knew I had to give them a try as my FiveSibes love salmon and sweet potato, and I especially liked that they are grain-free and made right here in the USA by a family-owned company!    Chloe, Wolf, Bandit & Harley like the bite-si

Nature's Drive-In Theater, #FiveSibes Style!

After Winter Storm Harper left town and approximately eight inches of snow and ice, our crazy weather changed drastically once again to 45 degrees and rain, which produced much fog. My Flashback Friday photo this week is not that far down Memory Lane as it is from yesterday! You see, keeping Huskies cooped indoors during a snowstorm, rain, or bitter temps is a challenge as this is their season! So, needless to say, they were very happy to be out today on the deck listening to the pitter-patter of rain one the deck roof as they relaxed on their fluffy beds with a front row seat to Mother Nature's show of fog rolling in over the snow! Pass the popcorn, please!   You're Invited! Join us each week for a walk down Memory Lane by linking up to our Flashback Friday Blog Hop! Share photos of your pets on your blog or social media from yesteryear or yesterday, grab our badge with a nod to our post, and link up to the hop. Link open all week, so join in any time! 

#FiveSibes Pupsters Celebrate 11th Birthay!

  What a special day here at FiveSibes...our Pupsters, Chloe, Wolf, and Bandit turned 11! It's been such  joy watching these siblings grow up together - and days filled with love, fun, chaos, and laughter raising three puppies at once, with two more young Huskies - our "originals" Harley and Gibson who were just pups themselves at three and two years of age at the time we brought home the Pupsters! Our Pupsters as12-week-old puppies! Oh, the days of training three - lots of craziness and fun - and pee pads and poop! But believe it or not, teaching three puppies at the same time was pretty awesome! My daughter, who was my co-parent and trainer, spent every day with them while I was work. When they learned something new, they learned it together! To this day when you say "Potty off the deck!" all three (actually all five, now four) would turn and run off the deck together tandem-style!  Watching them, I still cannot believe they are now considered &q

What the Heck Happened to Chloe? Beware of Winter Allergies!

It started off like any other evening. Our Huskies went out for about an hour for a little yard fun and chilling on their deck beds before dinner. just like they do every day. Or so I thought. As they were coming back inside, I was startled to notice sweet Chloe's left eye was red and swollen shut (below photo on left).  First the left eye...then the nose and right eye... What the heck? Within 15 minutes, the swelling spread across her nose and into her right eye, too. Talk about getting worried. The other three Sibes were just fine. So, what happened to Chloe?  Chloe with her uber-swollen squishy face and muzzle. With an antihistamine in her, we did a search of the yard, deck, her sign of anything out the norm. Her food, supplements, and treats all the same brands as usual. Then her face got really squishy, and her muzzle really swelled. More antihistamine. Then her original swollen eye got better, and her good eye was swollen shut! As well as h

Blue Buffalo Homestyle Recipe Healthy Weight Chicken Dinner Review #ChewyInfuencer

Woooo, come on, Mom, says Chloe. Open up the cans! With the New Year, many of us set a goal to eat better, shed a few pounds, and feel healthier. Well, the same goes for our beloved dogs! Here at FiveSibes, our Siberian Huskies' weight has always been fairly easy to maintain. Except for one--our dear, sweet Chloe. She breaks all the rules. She will eat anything and everything, and she does not have a full switch! She automatically knows when it is dinner time, and for meals and snacks she is always the first one front and center, verbally reminding us exactly what time it is!  Woo! Our Chewy food came! She will also sneak in to clean the others' bowls of any leftovers, and even sometimes sneaks in to eat while they are just to get some more tidbits of food! I have to monitor her food intake as she will have it inhaled before the others' dishes are even set down. Our brand choice of dog food just happens to be Blue Buffalo, although, I have never tried the Homest

Celebrating My Dear Daughter's Birthday on a Special #FiveSibes Flashback Friday!

Today is a very special day and Flashback Friday here at's my darling daughter's (our FiveSibes co-guardian) birthday! Not only is she my amazing girl whom I am so very proud of, but she's also my best friend! She has assisted in the raising, training, and caring for our FiveSibes. Our amazing journey together with our five Siberian Huskies initially all goes back to her love of the breed and that wonderful day almost 14 years ago when she chose puppy Harley and puppy Harley chose her, and we welcomed our (future) alpha queen to our family! Shortly after, we were hit with the "Potato Chip Theory," which is once you have one Siberian Husky, you want (need) more! So, over the period of two years, we added four more, and they became the FiveSibes!  Prior to Huskies, we had two wonderful rescues, Sandy, the first dog my husband and I welcomed after being married, 13 years later, Chelsey came bounding into our lives and was my daughter's c
