Canine Cooking Corner: Autumn Apples!

Wolf: "Hey, Bandit, hu-mom left her apple unattended! Let's get some licks in." Bandit: "Nommm...hurry up, Wolfie. I think I hear hu-mom coming back." FiveSibesMom: "Ahem. Did you guys lick that apple?" Silence...with two sets of blue eyes (not-so-innocently) staring at me in Husky denial. This past weekend dawned with brilliant folliage on the trees further up north from us. So, during a lovely drive through what looked like a beautiful Autumn painting, we spotted a cute little roadside orchard that bright orange pumpkins piled in the back of an old red International pickup, and inside was a cooler full of fresh-picked, large apples! We chose a bag of Honeycrisps, and they were hands-down the best apples we or our Huskies ever took a bite of! No wonder Wolfie and Bandit were tempted to a few licks of my apple! Did you know...?

A Birthday Fond(ant)ly Remembered

  Flashback Photo ~ Gibson & Hu-Mom ~ September 2015   Tomorrow is my birthday, and this one from five years ago always springs to mind. What a birthday this was! At the time, I had been on a special diet for my health and feeling quite grumpy because my acupuncturist had me on a detoxing plan, so all I pretty much ate was seeds and dirt--hence the grumpiness. My husband and daughter went back and forth on whether to get me a cake, knowing I was on the special diet. Ultimately, they decided to get one, because what's a birthday without a cake? Even if I couldn't eat it, I could still enjoy the ceremony surrounding it.   They totally surprised me with this beautiful cake complete with a portrait of my beloved heart dog, Gibson, on the icing! It was truly a work of art! The cake was so pretty, for a moment, I thought about saving the top! ( Confession time: a few years earlier they had a custom cake made with five fondant Huskies on top, and while they eagerly waited to eat t

#RememberMeThursday: #SeeTheLight and Adopt an Epi-dog!

Today's spotlight is on beautiful Siberian Husky Epi-dog, "Shiloh!" Read more about this beautiful young Husky and how you can apply to ThisIsHouston rescue to adopt her further down in this post! Welcome to #RememberMeThursday, where we shine a light on pet adoption! This year's theme - #SeeTheLight - is to have everyone "Light Up the World for Orphan Pets." The mission is that "Changing just one mind can save a life." So today--September 24, 2020--let's shine a light so bright that the whole world talks about adopting a pet!   What is #RememberMeThursday All About?  For me, an author and blogger, I create to save lives, my advocacy has been two-fold: 1) to promote the adoption of homeless Huskies in shelters and rescues; and to 2) advocate for all dogs with Canine Epilepsy. ADOPT A HUSKY: There is such a crisis for Huskies needing forever and foster homes. The stunning beauty of the dogs, and the rise in popularity due to television sh
