  2. Heart says "No such thing as too many". Head says "As many as get on with each other and will all fit in the car together". Which is why we stopped at 5 - but still have the flexibility to foster (usually emergency)
  3. Today
  4. We’re still in limbo, recovery is slow. She’s still incontinent and they’re having to syringe feed her. Yesterday she looked brighter but still a bit spaced out, she’s been on opioid painkillers which is causing panting. She’s had those reduced. Things were looking more positive but the update this morning is that her blood pressure has shot up so another round of tests to try to determine why. It’s unusual with sepsis and is likely to be kidney related. She is just over 3 days post op and vet said first week is critical for recovery. Her bladder is swollen where the necrotic tissue was and where it ruptured but again that’s usual. They were going to try Metacam, tricky because you can’t usually give that to dogs with renal issues. We’re just hoping because that’s all we’ve got.

  5. Cool thanks for the tips. We're already getting in a routine of a couple early morning walks one before and one a bit after breakfast before I start work, one at lunch then one after work and a final walk just before bed. He's been really good letting the other half give him a good brushing so he's lost loads of fluff already

  7. hello! I am in the US and we Adopted an older male ( husky shepherd mix) as well, he is probably 7-8 years old now. I also work from home and am on my computer a lot (design work) and my dog is very good...he lays in the hall outside my office snoozing. The key to a relaxed dog when working, for us, is a brisk 45min - 1hr walk/jog in the morning! Then he is quiet and relaxed for the workday. He is a bit stiff in the joints when he first gets up, and he gets a glucosamine-chondroitin supplement ( Cosequin). I saw a big difference in how he gets up, after he started on that. We also avoid high-impact movements like leaping out of car onto concrete, tall steep stairs, etc. He has a memory foam dog bed too, which he loves...he seems to get up easier when he lays on that, vs the hard floor. congratulations on your new husky! Oh...and when the fur starts flying and he looks ragged and you can pull handfuls of fur off of him...that is NORMAL and he is not sick 🙂

  9. Yesterday
  10. Hi all Thought I'd continue the tinternet tradition of an opening post. Live in Dartford and rescued a siberian husky on Friday. Haven't had one before but had done loads of reading up. Things seem to be going fairly well at the minute although appreciate it's still early days. Our husky is an almost 10 yo male that had been at the shelter for a few months after having had a fractured tooth removed. Has had arthritis in left knee but doesn't seem to stop him walking too much. The staff had said not to expect too much when we met him which naturally rings true to theie aloof nature. So was a little bit of a surprise when he gave me a big hug 30 seconds after coming in the room whilst I was sat in a chair. Mainly joined the forum for a place to get advice when needed, I work from home but tend to be on the computer most of the day. Luckily can take the laptop downstairs for some meetings and into the garden when its nice to be with Rocco in different places but will stick a proper post up looking for ideas to help keep him entertained when I am busy. He's not very food focused although is eating better now (doesn't seem to like lamb flavoured food though, turkey and duck go down a storm as does fresh chicken). Hoping he'll be ready for a camping trip in 3 weeks over in South Wales. Anyway just wanted to say hello :edit: real name is Andy, Echus is from the Red Mars trilogy by Kim Stanley Robinson
  11. I think it all depends on the dog's activity level, if you are doing it solo, financial, work, space, etc. Personally I have 1 other person to help and I am comfortable with 3 huskies, with one of them low energy. I only have a townhome so I don't have room for a 4th and I can imagine walking being difficult.
  12. I never took the pictures I just nicked some of the ones others took

    Purebred?

    Just look through the members media section and see all the different types of Husky. I'm sure you'll see some that look like moon. Sarah and Marc (owners of the forum) currently are fostering Kevin/Khaos (we call him Kevin they call him Khaos lol) he looks similar to Moon and member Guinnesman (Phil) had a young boy named Logan (RIP) who was a short haired white like moon
