In Sickness & In Health: A February Roundup of Celebrations, Awards & a Blogiversary!

Image
Wow...it's been some February! First, I've been sick since the first...and am just now on the road to recovery of acute bronchitis that flared asthma then compounded by Flu A...multiple medical visits, breathing treatments, and bed rest...and *finally*...and turning the corner. I tried to keep everyone up-to-date on my social media pages, but I have been absent from here for most of the month (with the exception of extending my #FlashbackFriday blog hop dates three times). And guess what? It's almost March! So up front, I' d like to send out a heartfelt "Thank You" to all who sent me messages and notes throughout my illness. They meant the world to me!   First up - FiveSibes has just celebrated our 14th Blogiversary on February 23rd! On this date in 2010, I debuted this blog with my article "February is Canine Dental Health Month!" And it has been a fantastic journey every since.

  Keeping their eye on the prize...Just when sweet, patient Chloe thought the treat was coming to her (it was, I had just called her), dear sister Bandit moved in and snagged it away from her sister mid-air! Coming across this was a joy. As with most flashbacks, this brings me right back to the moment, and while you can't hear me here, I exclaimed, "Oh, Bandit! Chloe, she got your treat!" (No worries, Chloe did get one too). Like I always said, Bandit's moniker suited her perfectly as she was truly a thief...of toys, beds, and treats! BOL! (And she was a very fast Husky! Here, while she almost fouled it, she was quick enough to hold onto the cookie)! "Reclaim your curiosity, your sense of adventure, and have some fun. Don’t take every moment of your life so seriously. Allow yourself to enjoy life."  ~Akiroq Brost 💖 Memories Are Visits For the Heart 💖 Join Us!
