Remembering our #FiveSibes Furangels on Autumnal Equinox


Remembering our beloved FiveSibes Harley, Gibson, and Chloe on this 2020 Autumnal Equinox, and lighting candles for each of them as they are always with us in spirit and forever in our hearts. Run free, beautiful furbabies, in those forever snowy fields, north of the Rainbow Bridge and be wrapped in our love forever.


Thank you, Lisa Schaldemose for this beautiful image.

Woo! New Fall Beds!

"Wooooo!...Wolfie, new beds on our new deck!"

 ""Mom always picks the best beds for us!"

"Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!" I loooooove this bed!"

 "Thank wooooo, Mom!" 

Furhaven Pet - Plush Orthopedic Sofa, L-Shaped Chaise Couch

We like the Furhaven beds here at FiveSibes! When these beds arrive, they are in a vacuum sealed bag and need 24 hours to get their shape, so don't be alarmed at how they first look bumpy! I'm used to it as I have had Furhavens in the past. They are a nice light weight bed, so not hard to move around, yet they stay put! This is not a heavy duty style bed, but out of all the beds I've had, my Huskies seem happy with them and don't rip them up! For the price, which is not expensive compared to others I've purchased, they hold up well (if you don't have a bed ripper)! If you are looking for a heavy duty bed, this is not the one for you. But for us, we replace their beds each season, so the style and price makes these a nice comfy spot for my Huskies to chill out on.

Senior "pups
ters" now, I opt for theorthopedic foam to give their
aging joints comfort. Bandit and Wolfie relax on them and lo
ve the chaise style, which is bumper cushions on two sides, and open on two sides so they can cuddle or stretch out. I purchased the Large, which is perfect for how my Huskies (67 and 69 lbs) like to sleep. Some may prefer the Giant size for more space,but Wolfie and Bandit do fine with Large. (Images of sizes and interior are from Amazon).

There is also an assortment of colors and styles, but I chose the two-tone Stone Gray to match our house. I use these as an outdoor deck bed, but definitely bring them in as they are plush! They can
certainly be wonderful indoor beds (as my previous ones were). If you'd like to get one, I have posted the Amazon link below!

Remembering Our Beautiful Queen, Harley ❤️

 Flashback: Our Beautiful FiveSibes alpha queen "Harley" ~ October 2018
Time is indeed surreal. One year ago, on September 13th, on a beautiful sunny pre-Autumn day, our beautiful beloved Nanuk "Harley" Mari, our FiveSibes alpha queen, earned her furangel wings at home, in her favorite place--in our yard out on our deck, with her hu-family and fur family beside her. 
Our family's first Siberian Husky, my daughter's beloved dog, Harley was an absolutely amazing girl. She knew just how beautiful she was, too! Super smart, she ruled the Husky roost at our house! Harley was full of sass and spunk, and could chase her tail until the sun set! She loved Fetch! and never wanted us to stop playing! She accepted every Husky we added to our family after her, becoming Gibson's true love (oh, was he ever smitten with her!), and a wonderful "momma" to the three pupsters Wolfie, Chloe, and Bandit when we brought them home. 
This beauty queen could at times be "Snarley Harley" when she needed some quiet time of her own, but always loved her pack family and would snuggle up with them. She howled proudly on top of her lungs, out of tune to the point neighbors once thought she was injured! The pack would woo and bark at her until she howled first. Then they would join in the chorus, but never without her leading them in song. Her favorite things were running in the snow in the winter and splashing in the pool in the summer! In my daughter's words, "She was the most bad-ass dog ever." 
When she grew older and went deaf, you'd never know it. She understood sign language perfectly! I had always thought Harley would live really long, and while we were blessed to have her for 14-and-a-half years, it's just never long enough. 
Harley loved life, her pack family, and us ~ and oh, how we loved her. There will never be another dog like her. Always a part of our hearts, we miss our girl dearly. 
On this one year anniversary of her earning that silver harness, may she and Gibson and pupster Chloe be having some fun zoomies, and be snuggling up together, in those forever snowy fields, north of the Rainbow Bridge, all the while feeling our infinite love.
Thank you for all the joy, fun, and love you brought us. We miss and love you for aways, Momma Har.


“I have sometimes thought of the final cause of dogs having such short lives and I am quite satisfied it is in compassion to the human race; for if we suffer so much in losing a dog after an acquaintance of ten or twelve years, what would it be if they were to live double that time? The misery of keeping a dog is his dying so soon. But, to be sure, if he lived for fifty years and then died, what would become of me?”

Foster Information:
Facebook Page (@DelValSiberianyHuskyRescue):

"The Delaware Valley Siberian Husky Rescue, Inc is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to finding permanent loving homes for abused, neglected and unwanted Siberian Huskies.  

We devote ourselves to improving the quality of life for Siberian Huskies one dog at a time.  We do this through advice for owners, partnering with shelters, fostering, and placement assistance for “Owner Surrenders.” We will assist in placing Sibes that we have evaluated for temperament, directly from their current home to their new “forever home."






 How Can I Adopt or Foster From Delaware Valley Siberian Husky Rescue?

Check out their Adoption Policies & Foster Info:

(For full bio on Amorak and to watch for updated list of Beautiful Adoptable Huskies & Bios visit HERE)
And...Amorak is a K9 HERO! 
 According to Delaware Siberian Husky Rescue, at 6:15 one morning, "He woke up his foster mom with loud, insistent barking & howling! She was greeted by a huge fire burning in the next door neighbor’s back yard! After calling 911, seven fire trucks arrived. The neighbor lost a big shed and its contents, and a large oak tree was badly scorched along with a vehicle. Amarok’s foster mom had damage to the fence, but thanks to our Boy, there were no injuries & the fire was contained before it spread further. He’s a gem of a Boy! We love you, Amarok!!"



 Helping to educate others about the Siberian Husky breed's specific needs BEFORE they get one to ensure they are prepared and the home becomes a loving forever home.


#BreedEducate2Relate #WaitingWednesday #Rescue Blog Hop

What's This  #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! 


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.

***Grab our badge here and link to our blog, add your post's link to the Linky list, and join in the hop to help homeless animals! Link List is open all week for your convenience!***

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!

#FlashbackFriday: We Will #NeverForget ~ Tribute to 9/11 Hero Dogs


Flashback to September 11, 2001 as we remember when 19 years ago our country was attacked. This is in memory and tribute to all those who lost their lives, and to the brave heroes--including the working dogs--who worked so tirelessly on search and rescue.
We Will Never Forget.

Read the AKC article, "The Legacy of 9/11 Dogs 19 Years Later" HERE   

"September 11, 2001. Terrorists fly two passenger jets into the World Trade Center. Within hours, both buildings collapse. Over 10,000 men and women, the greatest mobilization of emergency workers in the history of the United States, heed the call for help. 300 of these heroes are dogs." ~Dog Files Hero Dogs of 9/11


We will always remember the human & canine heroes of  9/11/2001
