Our Harley is Back Home, Forever

"Where we love is home - home that our feet 
may leave, but not our hearts." 
~Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

Our beloved Harley, alpha queen of our #FiveSibes is now back home for eternal rest, alongside Gibson and Chloe. Somehow, it seems fitting that she came home today...on my birthday. Harley loved car rides, so my daughter and I gave her one final long car ride home while reminiscing our lives with her.

Heartfelt thanks to someone very special to us, her amazing vet Dr. Beth Alden at Kingston Animal Hospital for her care of Harley over the many years, for always being there, and for Harley's final peaceful at-home end of life care. 


Much appreciation also to Dutchess County SPCA and Faithful Companion Memorial Services for her respectful after life care. 

Love you forever, Har-Har girl. 
It's been a wonderful, blessed, amazing, loving, and fun-filled 14-and-a-half years...but still, never enough time. You were our first Husky, our spunky stunning beauty. We miss you Harley momma. Rest easy now, and give a nuzzle to my beloved wooly boy Gibson and one to sweet pupster Chloe. We miss you all. 

Love,  #ForeverFiveSibes Mom

Dear Readers and FiveSibes Fans: 
We will still be on a blogging break and will pop in to share a story or two, but mainly will be with Wolf and Bandit to continue helping them as they help me grieve and transition to being a furfamily of just two...while in our hearts we will be #ForeverFiveSibes. We will be back in due time on a more continual basis and will once again feature our blog hops, but until then, we thank you you for all your continued love and support.


  1. So glad she home safe and back with you. Bet she loved the car ride.

    Take care of yourself. We are thinking about you.

  2. Hugs from all of us, we understand all about the sad homecomings.

  3. You know I felt that same way when I brought my Moose and my Apache home (we had to let them go about a month apart back in 2017). They both loved car rides and I thought of that as we were bringing them home from being cremated. Dogs leave big pawprints in our hearts and my heart is not a heart anymore but a big pawprint. Hugs to you and your daughter.

  4. While it's painful to deal with a beloved pet "coming home" there is comfort for the tender heart. Welcome home, sweet Harley.❤️

  5. So sorry for your loss, it is so hard to lose our pups. She had the best and most wonderful home with you!
