Knowing Critically Important First Aid & CPR For Your Pet

  While April is the official National Pet First Aid Awareness Month, every day is a day to be aware of important pet life-saving tips and know what to do in those precious minutes before you can get your pet to the veterinarian.  April is also a good time to check out classes near you where you can become certified in First Aid & CPR for your dog (or cat). I did when I had my FiveSibes. My vet was always on speed-dial, and they accepted texts from (i.e. one morning at 2:30 AM when Gibson was rushed to the ER animal hospital), and I lived close to both my vet office (in my backyard as the crow flew) and near to the ER hospital - however, there are times when it is necessary to know what to do in case of accident, injury, or ingestion of a toxins.

#FlashbackFriday: Earth Day Tips to Reduce Carbon Pawprints & Invest in Our Planet

Every time I look at this photo of our alpha queen, Harley, from May 2018, eagerly anticipating eating this homemade cake pop, I often think how the cake pop looks like our planet Earth. So what a perfect photo for today's #FlashbackFriday pic ~ and in celebration of Earth Day and this year's theme of #InvestInOurPlanet.     "This is the moment to change it all — the business climate, the political climate, and how we take action on climate. Now is the time for the unstoppable courage to  preserve and protect our health, our families, and our livelihoods... . For Earth Day 2023, we need to act (boldly), innovate (broadly), and implement (equitably).  Businesses, governments, and citizens — everyone accounted for, and everyone accountable .  A partnership for the planet.. . It’s going to take all of us. All in." ~   To help do our part again this year, I am resharing a few of our #FiveSibes tips to help reduce your pet's carbon pawprint:   🐾 Spay

#FlashbackFriday: Grass is Always Greener on Our Dogs' Lawn

#FiveSibes #Flashback ~ Littermates #Pupsters sister Bandit & brother Wolf ~ 2020     "Allow your dog to take you for a walk every day.  It's good for the soul."    ~Eckhart Tolle  💚   I remember this day so clearly as we took a lovely backyard walk in our new yard with Pupsters Bandit and Wolfie. They had to be leashed as we did not yet have our fence up. Talk about excited Sibes! They loved exploring all the new sites and smells! I sure do miss these pups and our walks. Time flies, be sure to enjoy all the little moments, for one day they sure do become precious memories. 💚 And speaking of backyards...   My latest article is out in 4Knines, and I talk all about yard safety after the long winter's snow, and a great video on teaching your dog how to exit a pool. You can check it all out HERE .  And...since 4Knines is celebrating their 10th Anniversary, be sure to enter their fantastic GIVEAWAY, too!
