#FlashbackFriday: The Season of Wolf


Flashback Photo 2016 ~ Wolf with his Wolf.


“The wolves knew when it was time to stop looking for what they’d lost, to focus instead on what was yet to come.”  ~Jodi Picoult

 Today's quote is appropos considering all the loss we here at FiveSibes have experienced over the past several years, especially with losing both Wolf's sister Chloe and momma Harley the summer of 2019, then sister Bandit last fall. Now, while my sensitive boy may bear the name of the magnificent canis lupus, or wolf, we are trying to embrace the philosophy of the wolf and not be lost in what is behind us, but rather enjoy the present and look ahead to each day.
 This new joy after such loss is something that did not come by easy for Wolfie. They say that with great loss comes the fact that there was great love. And boy, there sure was. It was an epic time. But when a close-knit pack family suffers loss, one after another, such as my FiveSibes, being the last Husky standing is not an easy place to be. 
I am thankful that after a very long and worrisome six-month solo grieving period (and being physically ill) after Bandit's passing, my boy is finally once again filled with a new joy. His days now are spent with just us humans. While he no longer has canine family members to snuggle with, eat alongside, and play with, he does have me and my family. Our two little grandhumans are now his favorite companions, and in that my senior boy has found new joys to fill his days with lots of toddler hugs as well as walks, chasing bubbles, and sharing of treats in his golden years. 
And that warms my loss-weary heart.

#FlashbackFriday: Celebrating Momma Dog


Flashback ~ "Momma" Harley and pupsters 
Wolfie, Chloe & Bandit ~ 2008

With Mother's Day this weekend, I thought it was a perfect time to reflect back on our FiveSibes beautiful "momma" Harley for today's Flashback Friday. While Harley did not actually birth the Pupsters--Wolf, Chloe, and Bandit, she took them under her paw and treated and trained them as her own from the moment we brought all three puppies home. It truly was a wonderful thing to see her relationship with the Pupsters over the years, and how they always listened and respected her as their momma and the pack's alpha queen!
