The Look: Memories of Huskies and Gingerbread Houses

Image
 #FlashbackFriday ~ FiveSibes "Chloe" ~ Christmas 2015     "THE LOOK"   T his year, I was making gingerbread houses with my two grandkiddos and it always brings joy...and some frustration when the house decides to collapse! But then we rebuilt it, and ate some of it along the way! It brought back memories of when we built a gingerbread house with the FiveSibes...oh, they sure were interested when they caught whiffs of all the yumminess...only, it was for the humans in the family, not them. (At least not this version). This is *the* look I received from Chloe when I advised her of this, and while I'm chuckling, she meant business when she realized she and the other Sibes were not getting any! (No worries, though, they did get some special homemade treats just for them).   "Enjoy the moments while you are in them...be present...for they become memories far too soon, but memories that will always bring back smiles for those moments of joy were well spent with

When Santa Paws Came to Visit Our FiveSibes Huskies!

Image
   Santa Paws sure did come to town, and our house!   This will always be one of the most fun and special Christmas moments with my FiveSibes. Santa came to visit them at our home! "Santa" was amazing, and they all loved the visit so much! You can see how they took turns giving Santa their kisses...now, maybe they knew who Santa was, or they were just very excited to meet the jolly elf in person, but it was a wonderful time and I'm forever grateful to Santa (a/k/a Kat from their veterinarian hospital) and this will forever be one of the holiday season highlights for me!            💚 Memories Are Visits For the Heart 💚             Back to our Home Page and Our Other Pages, including Our About the Breed Page and Our #LiveGibStrong On-Line K-9 Epilepsy Resource Page, ArcticHouse Books & Gifts Shoppe & so much more!  Just click on "More" Pages at top of blog .      

That's A Christmas Wrap, Gibson!

Image
    Gibson was a busy elf helping me to wrap! Or, did he just want the tube?!    And that was a fun wrap! A Christmas wrap, as in wrapping paper, that is! I remember this Christmas Eve Eve so clearly...and how my Wolfie could not be bothered, but Gibson stepped into the role of Husky Elf and was totally into the wrapping paper! What a fun night this was!  Do your dogs help you wrap?   “Today is next year’s Christmas Memory.

A Very Merry FiveSibes Christmas Slumber Party on #FlashbackFriday

   #Flashback Christmas Photo ~ FiveSibes (starting at bottom): Harley, Gibson, Bandit on the chair, Chloe on the sofa, and Wolfgang on the right) ~ Christmas 2014   This is still one of my favorite Christmas memories of yesteryear with all five of my Huskies. I haven't shared it in a few years, but I was thinking of how the nights leading up to Christmas was as if they knew something incredible was coming. In this Flashback from nine Christmases ago, we were all settled in for movie night and when I returned with snacks, Bandit had stolen my chair and all five were patiently waiting for me (or me and the treats)!    “Christmas is a bridge. We need bridges as the river of time flows past. Today’s Christmas should mean creating happy hours for tomorrow and reliving those of yesterday.” ~Gladys Taber       💚 Memories Are Visits For the Heart 💚         Come join us each week and share your fave Memory Lane pics from yesteryear or yesterday!  Simply grab our badge, be sure to li

Remembering Our Beloved FiveSibes and All Our Furry Friends on the Winter Solstice

  My beloved furangels the FiveSibes: Pupsters Wolfie, Bandit & Chloe, Gibson, Harley, and kitty Smokie (who thought she was a Husky)!     My special candles made by DMK Creations (on Etsy) Our first dog as a married couple, our rescue dog "Sandy" and our amazing "Chelsey," another SPCA adopted pup that grew up with my daughter and met Harley and Gibson. North of the Rainbow Bridge by MakWa4me The time comes. A Siberian Husky lifts up its head. There is an untested adventure beyond. Time to go. Across the Rainbow Bridge is a place for all dogs. A river runs wide and shallow with tennis balls that fly with their own wings; that is the place for a Labrador or Golden to await its master's arrival The Siberian is not content here. Northward is its trail.... There are soft pastures for Aussies and Border Collies, with sheep and geese to pen. Agility equipment g
