#FiveSibes "The Sibe Vibe" Celebrating 7th Anniversary With Carol Bryant & A Giveaway!

We here at FiveSibes are pretty excited to be celebrating the 7th Anniversary of my show, "The SibeVibe" on Dog Works Radio, where if it's about a Siberian Husky, canine epilepsy, or all things dog, we'll chat about it! It's been an amazing seven years getting to know and interview so many wonderful canine and Husky loving guests who have shared the mic on air with me and shared their stories and expertise with our listeners! To celebrate, our girl Bandit has a Giveaway announcement...

Siberian Huskies
 Be sure to enter our Rafflecopter at end of post!

Our very first show and guest was with the lovely folks from the Siberian Husky Rescue of Florida! Every single show over these past seven years has been a highlight for me. A fond memory was meeting my producers Robert and Michele Forto, who in July 2016 traveled from Alaska to meet me here in the lower 48 to do a live broadcast of our 4th Anniversary show together! A proud moment for the show was having one of my episodes on Canine Epilepsy being nominated for "Excellence" by the prestigious Dog Writers Association of America (DWAA)!

To celebrate our 7th Anniversary of "The Sibe Vibe" being on air at Dog Works Radio,
Carol Bryant and "Dex"
I am so pleased to have on as my featured guest this month the president of the DWAA, Carol Bryant, who is a professional pet blogger, freelance writer, social media pro, speaker, consultant, and the face behind Fidose Of Reality, and it's fundraising arm Wigglebutt Warriors. "A dog lover of the highest order" is how Gayle King described her when Carol and her Cocker Spaniel "Dexter" were guests on Gayle's Oprah radio show! Carol and I discuss two of my very favorite things--dogs and writing! Be sure to tune in to hear some great news about the DWAA, including news about their annual writing competition and awards banquet, as well as some fabulous inside blogging tips!

You can listen to the show right here, or catch it on iTunes, or the Podcast app on your iPhone or iPad!


"Woo!" Wolf says, "Don't forget to enter our 7th Anni-versary Giveaway for a brand new custom FiveSibes "The Sibe Vibe" sew-on patch!

What's This NEW #WaitingWednesday 
Blog Hop All About?

It's about becoming a "village" to help rescues, homeless Huskies, and all abandoned pets of any species in need. It's also to share breed information to help educate folks so they understand the traits, habits, and needs of specific breeds, such as the Siberian Husky, BEFORE they welcome one into their home to ensure the home will be a forever one. Please check out our recent post HERE where I talk all about this new important Blog Hop! 

#SiberianHusky Rescue, #WaitingWednesday Blog Hop
 Also, please be sure to read a very important and informative blog article wrote, #BreedEducate2Relate: It Takes A Village to Help Huskies in Need about the explosion of Siberian Huskies being abandoned and to become on educated on the breed before welcoming one into a home, as well as an equally important companion article in 4Knines titled Siberian Husky Rescues: A Heartfelt Mission to Help the Homeless. I hope if you have not read these, you will and share with others, too.

How You Can Join in Our Weekly "Village" to  Help Homeless Pets...

Write a blog post (or Facebook or Instagram post) highlighting a rescue (you can do a different one each week!) along with some photos of the rescue's adoptable animals (dogs, cats, horses, bunnies--any species) along with a little info on the pet and the rescue's contact information. ***Then grab our badge below and link to our blog, add your post's link to the Linky list, and join in the hop to help homeless animals!***

#WaitingWednesday Blog Hop for Pet Rescue
While we here at FiveSibes randomly select rescues to highlight, if you are with a non-profit rescue of northern breed dogs (and mixes of both), and want to be sure I feature your rescue, please send me your info and some of your adoptables to highlight in an upcoming “Waiting Wednesday” post! Feel free to Email info and photos to FiveSibes(at)gmail(dot)com and put 
“Waiting Wednesday Adoptable” in subject line!

We are also joining in the Pet Parade hosted by Dash Kitten, Bionic Basil & Barking from the Bayou! Pop over and check out the blog posts in the Parade!

Woo! Happy National Dog Day!

"Woo! It's Dog Day...bring on the treats!"

While every day is Dog Day here at Forever FiveSibes, how wonderful to have a special date to celebrate (and give extra hugs and treats)! Another good way is to share that love (and treats and some toys, even gently used and clean ones) to a shelter dog or two! We just did!!

A #FiveSibes Flashback Friday Funny: Oh, Gibson!

Oh, Gibson! đź¤­ BOL! Today we are flashing back four years to August of 2015 and my silly, fluffy boy Gibson who always had a great Siberific sense of humor and could make me laugh! Gib always, ALWAYS loved to lay belly up, private parts exposed to the heavens! I remember we'd chuckle as he was rolling over, knowing exactly the position he favored, and thought, "that boy should be censored!" 

I hope today's Flashback Friday funny moment in time brings you a smile to kick off your weekend!

"A good laugh is sunshine 
in the house."
