  1. The look on his face says it all...!
  2. Evening folks, My pup was neutered today and he seemed to have taken to his head cone rather well - or so I thought. I just went to adjust it to make it one notch tighter - and he went for my hand and came very close to breaking my skin in one place. I know he could do a lot of damage should he want to - and I'm trying to put myself in his shoes, having a strange thing on my head for the first time that stops me from walking and seeing properly - but I'm wondering should I be worried because he reacted in this way? Or is it just a culmination of the traumatic day and pain he's most likely in. He's never done it before. Thanks.
  3. Never heard of this happening before. What a horrible thing to do... I'd be freaking out! Hope nothing comes of this... Cameras are a good idea, along with security lighting if you haven't already got some. Never hesitate to call 101 - that's what they're there for!
  4. Poor Sarah! Really hope everything goes well next week.
  5. Thanks for the recommendation, I've found a similar one on Amazon and have just ordered! I took Frankie to the vets today and thankfully the hotspots are healing now. He's also teething, which is a nightmare!! We took him to the woods today and a muzzled husky ran up to him out of nowhere and started trying to attack him and knocked one of his teeth out. The noise he made was awful. Found the owner shortly after but they didn't seem to care. The entire tooth has gone but there's still some small fleshy bits dangling down which I'll have to sort out tomorrow. He's not eating now so I've frozen some kongs for him. Tried adding water to his food but that's done nothing. It never rains, it pours!!!
  6. Glad to hear he hasn't had anymore! Frankie has started to go in the river quite often, I towel dry him when we get home but perhaps that isn't enough - I think I'll buy a hairdryer for him tomorrow. I've just ordered some hibiscrub from Amazon, cheers! He's in a t-shirt tonight to stop him from licking his steroid cream off...
  7. Evening all, My poor boy has developed 2 nasty hotspots on his chest area. The vet has given him some steroid cream and has instructed me to clean the wounds/apply twice daily. I was wondering if anyone here would have any tips to perhaps prevent or at the very least lessen the likelihood of him developing these again? My understanding is that if caught soon enough they aren't really serious enough to bother the vets with - which products do you find treat them best? It's driving me crazy seeing him like this, all he wants to do is itch and scratch them. Kind Regards, Patrick & Frankie
  8. Sorry for not replying folks, had a very busy couple of weeks. Frankie is 14 weeks old tomorrow and is doing great! His eye problem (if it ever was a problem) has now gone.
  9. Hi Wolfpup! Luckily my local vets are only about 50 metres away, so I've arranged to pop in tomorrow and do just that. Thank you! Hey Emma, Yes I've noticed a few husky pups with this issue that don't see to have it going into adulthood. I asked the breeder over the phone this morning - she said he didn't have a lazy eye and that it was just his reaction to the camera flash. I'm not quite sure I believe that - but that being said, I've had a very positive experience with them thus far and have no basis for that paranoia...!
  10. Hello! My name is Patrick, I'm a 24 year old broadcast sound engineer working for BBC News. I moved into my first proper house in Feburary and decided that I would finally check 'get a husky' off my bucket list. I met the pup and his parents several weeks ago, and am picking Frankie up on the 13th of this month. The breeder has been sending me lots of photographs since - and I've noticed that he appears to have a lazy eye. I'm just wondering if this is a health problem, or something that is benign and may even correct itself in due course. Aesthetics don't really bother me, he's a beautiful pupper - but I'd like to know I'm not staring at a red flag. Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated!
