Happiness is Sharing an Ice Cream on #FlashbackFriday!

 

Flashback Photo: Summer 2020 ~ Siblings Bandit & Wolf

Nothing sings out Summertime more than that familiar jingle of the ice cream truck wringing out through the neighborhood! Even as one hears the song in the distance, it sends kids running to get a few dollars from parents as they race to wait for the ice cream truck to park in front of their house so they can get some yummy cold treat. Our #FiveSibes Bandit and Wolf also enjoyed it! And the driver had a special selection just for dogs - vanilla soft serve served with a dog biscuit (in our case, two!) on top! I've said it before and I'll say it again, I always loved how my #FiveSibes shared, and here in this little video you can see how they patiently waited for their turn at the ice cream truck and how much they enjoyed eating their summertime treat! Little did I know at the time, it would be Bandit's last summer, but oh, she had a great one!

Gratitude & Joy on a #Flashback Friday

I recall exactly when this photo was taken...I do for all of them, actually. That is why I love our #FiveSibes #FlashbackFriday Blog Hop - it allows me to revisit some amazing times spent with my five, then four Sibes. It's like getting another chance to enjoy the moments of a particular day. I always loved how at the end of a day, I'd sit in my recliner ready to watch a little TV, and my FiveSibes would always come running into the living room and first play and zoomie around with each other, then they would settle down and all eyes on me (they knew I had snacks!), before laying down on their beds. That feeling of seeing them all happy and safe lying all around me, is one I will keep forever in my heart. The quote fits the memory perfectly as I recall clearly feeling so joyful to be able to share my life with all of them, and so very grateful to be their FiveSibesMom.

Pool Time! Stay Cool Time!

 

 Fill this thing up, Hu-Mom! But not too full!

Woo! After days of rain it came out a warm one today! Time to fill the pool to keep cool! While some of my other FiveSibes loved the pool - like Harley (could not keep that girl out! And she loved to play with the hose water!), Bandit, and Gibson, too, loved the pool and hose. Wolfie on the other hand is a bit stand-offish like his sis Chloe was. He likes to dip his paws in and drink some of the cold water, but splashing and playing is just not his thing!

Another way I like to help Wolfie stay cool is with a dog cooling collar (I use Kool Collar and you slip pre-made ice packs inside)! I have used these for years for my Huskies, beginning with my Epi-dog, Gibson (heat can be a trigger for seizures, that plus he had a very furry wooly coat, so he always wore one when out in the warm weather and he always had a cooler water bed and a fan). Here is my Wolfie modeling his blue cooling collar!

Naturally, his favorite place is to snooz inside in the a/c! But having a pool, cooling collar, fan, and a cooler water bed all helps to keep a thick-coated northern breed dog, such as Wolfie, cool when outdoors with the family!
