    You all have lots of cool pets!![emoji4] We have ARMANI & ALINAH and one wild toad named ACE who lives by the air conditioner. (We put a little fence up because doggies kept chewing off the foam that goes to one of the pipes.) Anyway, the dogs love ACE the toad!! ACE has been in both doggies' mouths a 100Xs this summer, but they never hurt him. They have to see him every night. I told them ACE will be hibernating soon so get your kisses in!![emoji23] Photo: ACE the toad with ARMANI kissing him!!

    I’d leave him to eat his food, I think dogs should eat their food in peace but you could train during the day, not at food times, if he’s food aggressive by using tiny pieces of fruit or whatever you wish, by hand feeding to begin with. Food aggression is partly down to a lack of trust, bonding with your pup coupled with consistent training and you will see the difference. Cai was food aggressive with Luka blue, feeding time was a nightmare when they were younger, and when Cai had a bone he was a different animal altogether [emoji33] We worked on his food aggression for the best part of 18 months, it took this long because he’d try to take Luka blue’s food, but thankfully now there are no issues.

    We feed, we go potty, turn the lights off and put the TV on the history channel and the pups are out. However, that only last an hour. Then the male has to set inside his doggy door for 30-40 minutes staring up at the sky. Then sissy has to have her turn. She paws and yells at him until he moves. LOL Then they sleep for a few more hours and then we do it all over again. Our mornings are what is crazy. 🤣

    Bedtime, all 6 out for a piddle (2 have to be convinced they need to go out as they prefer to stay in and burst their bladders!). Back in, lie down in their beds (dining room is their room) to get their final treat and that's it.

    Phew, that was a gripping and suspenseful story!! I was rooting for you to make it to your side of the bed 😄 My dog puts ME to bed! I am reading or on internet, it’s getting late...Suddenly he stands up and approaches me...time for bed!! Then he follows me and lays on bath mat in the bathroom to watch me brush my teeth and change. Then he lies on bedroom floor watching me get into bed. After I lie down and put covers on, I hear him walk to his dog bed, turn around a few times, and go to sleep. It feels like being put to bed by a dog!!! ( He also reminds me when it is time to eat our lunch, and when it is time to quit work and go play in the yard...)

    In feb we bought a motorhome and the dogs have been enjoying going different places and different activities, like hiking and being able to go in water, even though they hate the rain. Just tought i would post some pics of my two ladies enjoying our familys new hobby. The little one Nook is 14, and the big one Lola is 7. It is so nice to just load up and take the dogs with us. I wish we would have done it years ago. But it must wear them out because this is what we get for the first day every time we come back from a weekend trip Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hello everyone, For our new members, in the past we have held a secret Santa gift exchange, and we will try to do that again this year. Below I will outline how it works. Participation is encouraged, but only commit to it if you really plan on buying a gift. In the past we had required members who have had a certain amount of posts, but I will not make that requirement. Last year we had good luck with everyone getting something I believe. So here is how it will work: Add your name in the comments below if you are interested. I will accept names through November 10, 2018. When adding your name indicate what regions you want to exchange with. The options are: UK Only US Only North America Only (US, Canada, Mexico) Anywhere (if you want to participate and have a preference message me) Around the first of November, I will randomly match people up, and send a message to everyone asking for your shipping address Once I have the list, I will post a separate topic asking for likes/dislikes, such as if you prefer gifts for yourself or your dogs, if your dog has a special diet or allergies (i.e. grain free, no rawhide) Around mid-November I will send another message of the name and address of the person who you will be buying for. Try and have your item(s) sent by early December, especially if you are shipping overseas. What I have done in the past is purchase them from an online store and have it gift-wrapped and sent directly to the person. However you can do it however you prefer. Just don't announce who you have or what you purchased. When you get your Secret Santa gift, DONT open until December 24th. The spending limit is $15 USD (or approximately £10) (or feel free to make your own gifts if you are so inclined) If you have any questions please let me know.

    Woo Woo Everybody!![emoji4] We have 2 Huskies ages 1 and 2. At night/bedtime, it gets quite crazy🤯comical!![emoji23] In bed, it consists of my husband AJ, ARMANI[emoji191] (our male), ALINAH[emoji191] (our female), 2 to 100 chew bones[emoji491] all over the bed, "Booty" (ALINAH's toy[emoji451] what's left of it), their stuffed animals🦓[emoji228][emoji205][emoji882] & snakies[emoji216][emoji216]) ... oh and almost forgot my tired self[emoji33] ... but there's never any room left for "Mommy!!"[emoji849][emoji23] So, after the doggies' "Nighty Night Bone Chomping Chewing Stealing Each Other's Bones Time & Biting Tails Singing WWE Wrestling Swinging Body Slamming Match Howling Contest Party & (Mommy Turned Zombie🧟 Driven To Midnight Happy Hour"[emoji481][emoji485][emoji484][emoji484][emoji484]🤣), Mommy is always the last one to bed (now everybody say, "Ahhh!"[emoji23]) Mommy has to clean up the bed first by throwing all the toys off the bed (Sorry Not Sorry!![emoji23]), then I try moving a big furry 67lb wolf boy, moving another big furry 45lb wolf girl, both GROWLING[emoji51] at Mommy when I move them over in the middle of the bed, and then start flipping[emoji123] my husband🕺 over on his side 10 times to stop his buzzsaw snoring[emoji42]!! Then while taking a big breath[emoji860]️, I do a huge olympic high dive [emoji474]‍♀️soaring through the air[emoji927]️ onto "my" side of the bed[emoji933]️ ... but ... only to find the bigger wolf has purposely & instantly slid back on my side of the bed[emoji191] ... again!![emoji849] So, I try to move him a little bit more again. FINALLY, I jump in bed with only a foot[emoji423] left for me (But hey, that's ok, I'm not choosy!![emoji23]). Once on my side, both doggies stand up and do this fancy weird rain[emoji943]️dancing circles kind of dance[emoji191][emoji126][emoji191] to find that perfect, comfy spot to lay, which is on top of Mommy's[emoji932] LEGS!![emoji490][emoji490] (Help OMG!![emoji31]) Lastly, all 4 of us are tucked in our warm cozy very tight-fitted crowded king[emoji146]size bed happily ... (but just a little nontrusting of the wolves and Mr. Buzzsaw🤪 at this point[emoji848][emoji57]) sleeping & dreaming the night away!![emoji99][emoji99][emoji854]🤫[emoji4] Honest story...really!![emoji54][emoji52][emoji58][emoji42] Does anyone else have a crazy bedtime??

    I think the problem lies with the busy body, if the howling is only for a few minutes then I don’t see what the problem is, there’s soooo many laws about things what’s happened to common sense. As long as they’re not howling before 8 in the morning and after 8 at night I don’t see the issue. You could try leaving the radio on for them, I leave my tv on for my 2 when we go out it seems to make a difference. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

    I probably did the "wrong" thing but every time Taylor growled or made me think I was about to get bitten i would wrestle whatever it was off of her. A couple of weeks later, not even a hint of fuss. She is still resource guarding, but limited issues when i go near. Of course, you may get bitten this way, but worked for me. Good luck

    Maybe instead of just putting his food bowl down put his food in the bowl sit next to him and hand feed him it. Do this until he allows you near the bowl when he eats. I did this with my dog to stop any potential food aggression.

    It's great! Definitely injected a bit of life into what was becoming a tired and jaded series. I suppose I can see why some have criticised but, personally, I just see some great acting and the gender's irrelevant (and yes, I used to watch the very first series of Dr Who 😀 )

    We have 2 cats Misty and Diesel. No idea how old they are, I just know Diesel is older and a rescue. Luna tries to sniff both and she will rest her head on top of Misty. We have always had bad luck with cats. One was poisoned from drinking anti freeze (people who have pigeons put it out) 2 have been run over, I saw one the morning I went to the shop to get my daughters school break sweet... it was in a terrible state, ribs showing, eye hanging out and a lot of road rash, I had to go back and get it before I took my daughter to school as she was about 6 at the time and we would have had to walk right past it. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners Oh, Misty is always getting worms as she eats what she kills.... I have an old video on my laptop somewhere of her eating a mouse she caught. It is a tad graphic though since I get very close and u can hear the skull crunching, but she did eat every part Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

    At our old place I installed the dog door in place of a glass window was easier as all the doors had fly screens then a solid door. Currently it's just the husky as we used to have a rabbit who was more than capable of handling the harassment but she died of old age and was tormented constantly [emoji19] Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app

    Mine isn't too crazy. Around 10pm, Yukon gets his meds, and they all go potty outside. Sometimes Kodiak and Nikko are already laying on the bed, since that is where they prefer to hang out. After they all go potty, we go upstairs to bed. Nikko lays in the middle, Kodiak is at my feet and Yukon is usually on the floor or sometimes comes up on my pillow. That is pretty much it!

    I have one 7 year old re-homed female husky, one 10 year old Female Maine Coon cat, one 5 year old Bengal male cat and 4 hens. It was a bit of a juggling act fitting the husky in but the Maine Coon adapted well by just not running away from the dog, the Bengal is a bit of a scaredy cat but he now will just step over the husky and they often touch noses, the hens well, the husky was fine with them until one day she wasn’t for some reason and despatched two of them so now they don’t share space lol.

    Two dogs - one with epilepsy and one with doggie dementia and one cat now - used to be very quiet until his sister died (cancer) but now he is very opinionated and 'needy'. All in all I have my hands full with just these three - Oh, I forgot I also have a two legged creature as well ................ by far worse than the other three put together 😉

    See I've always thought "What is wrong with the doctor being male?". There were a lot of things about asking why it was never a women, never black etc, and I dont see the logic. So the doctor can regenerate. That doesnt mean that it cant be "This timelord is a man" lol

    We do not have a "smart" house. Well, it should be smart because we bought it.[emoji23] But there are too many HACKERS out there that think they're smart[emoji985]️[emoji848][emoji851], and they can control your house "for you"... so unwanted. I know it's fun to talk to "Alexa" and say, "Alexa, turn off the lights," "Alexa, turn up the music," "Lock the doors," etc. But...can these "smart" home devices make you dinner and bring it to you on the couch??🤣 Well, I might be sold on it then!![emoji502][emoji493][emoji39] But...

    Thank you for that. I just want them to be happy and safe. They are turning 8 months and know to set, stay, down, and are starting to walk good 70% of the time on a leash...... When they want. I have people say that they are doing great for Huskies. But I know how smart they are and feel I could be doing better with them. Now if I can just stop them from eating everything, that would be a miracle. Hopefully they grow out of that before we start traveling.

    Marley used to be like that when he was younger. I got him out of it eventually - but I have another dog as well - who is so laid back he would stop eating and stand back if one of my cats went to investigate his food - which I think helped. I got a tablespoon with a little food on and offered the spoon to Lunar and then put more food on and offered it to Marley so he got used to food being on a spoon close to his face (this was never done at feeding time - usually just before). I did this for about 2 weeks. If ever I have to go near their food once it was down (usually some meds I had forgotten) - I always have some extra food to put into the bowl - Marley used to see me adding food to Lunar's bowl (I used the same spoon - not my fingers) - so I did the same with him, but not putting the food into his bowl - but offering the spoon to him keeping it about a foot away from his bowl - to start with he was very suspicious, keeping his head almost pushed into his food and making half growls. He never actually snapped at me. I usually positioned myself so that he had his bowl to one side and I was at the other - so he was in-between me and his bowl. He got to taking the food off the spoon and then going back to his bowl. I always made sure he saw me with the extra food before I went to Lunar and gave him a bit extra into his bowl whilst he was eating - then I went to him and did the same. It took around a month to 6 weeks before I was actually able to put the food into his bowl as I very gradually shortened the distance between the spoon and his bowl. As soon as the guarding lessened I went to every other day, then once a week. I still keep this up. He knows that if I approach him whilst he is eating it is only ever to give him something extra. The extra food I offered was always of a 'higher value' than what was in his bowl. For Marley that meant fresh pork (his favourite) when he had say beef mince and a chicken carcase in his bowl. He no longer guards his food bowl around me (I am always the one to feed them) - but I am only now getting to the stage of being able to take a bone away from him - I always give it back to him quite quickly. I have had to do this as he is in the habit of taking his bones outside, burying them in the dirtiest, wettest part of the garden - then going back the next day and bringing all the dirt/mud etc back into the house. Now if he wants to go outside to pee or anything and wants to keep the bone to stop Lunar pinching it, I take the bone away at the back door and he sees me putting it out of Lunar's reach - and he gets it back when he comes back in (he is always extremely quick in coming back) and goes immediately to where he saw me put his bone. This has taken me around a year to achieve.
