    Been quite some time since I've stopped by. Want to update those of you who remember me or the girls... Ryn will be eight, yes EIGHT next month, and Tunes is approximately six and a half. Where does the time go? We've had some health issues - Tunes had elevated liver enzymes and so I now home-cook their meals. Ryn has dropped six pounds and is no longer a 'Missy Moo' - rather 'Skinny, Minny, Rynnie'! And Tunes, who rarely ate more than two meals in a row, now never misses a meal and is holding her own at 44 pounds. They are still doing therapy work and loving every minute of it. Sadly tomorrow is the funeral of one of their favorite individuals - 104 years young! Ryn will miss him so and I'm planning on taking her to the funeral so she understands what is going on when we visit the care center and he is no longer there. She will miss him dearly. Take care. Miss you all! Becky

    As many of you will know a few months ago I lost one of my dogs Well today a freind of mine was kind to help me out and drive me 200 miles to pick up my new Pup He is 14 weeks old when we arrived at the Farm he was bred on he was in Paddock with horses and donkeys next to it, Standing on a hump barking at us along with 5 other dogs of mixed ages. He is a Belgian Shepherd Malinois Lakenois cross. I think it will take him a few days to work out the big Fuzzy white and grey thing is actulay another dog, Uncle Louie is ignoring the growling and barks Will post more pictures in the next couple days want to get him calmed down and settled in before doing a real photo shoot, He has a lot to learn and get used to seeing as he will be my Service dog

    Very proud of my Luka who regained his crown as 'Best in Show' at Saturday's Leyland Festival The following morning he had a lie-in. After all, it's exhausting, what with being a fundraising, 12 year old rescue and winning 'Best in Show'

    They need to learn this behaviour and the sooner you can socialise the less problems you'll have. Ours is far too social and wants to play with every dog which gets us in trouble at the dog park as she doesn't understand cues that some dogs don't want to play (mainly smaller breeds whose owners panick thinking she's trying to attack). It's good to start with socialising on lead letting them say hello then walking on. Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app

    I recently rescued this girl from a life in a small kennel and living in her own excrement. Her coat was dry, brown and smelly. She had an embedded collar of which she now has a scar on her neck. With some tlc her coat is now shining and she is learning to live inside a house. All in all, she is very friendly, playful and she loves to cuddle. Her name is Tisha and she is now Teddy's (my other husky) best friend. She has a nice black and white coat with unique markings around her eyes. Teddy also has quite a unique coat color. He has a wolfish color on top and white on the bottom with cream coloring around his eyes. PS. all the plants in the background of the picture have been chewed to bits. Some were still salvageable and are now away from her grasp.

    The topic for November's Husky of the Month Competition is....Broken Huskies! Post a pic of your husky in the most unusual positions. Does your husky curl up, or rest in a crazy position? Does it look like they are broken? The rules are simple, one post per dog (or you can post a group shot). Entries will be accepted through Sunday, November 11th. I will start out with Nikko Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    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!!

    Just want to clear up a few things here, as there are some parts of this which I think are being misunderstood. Nix offered her opinion on this, because that is exactly what was asked for. There is little point in asking for an opinion if its a case of 'I don't like the answer'. There are a few things here people don't seem to understand about genetics, and different breeds, so hopefully this may help Seppala Husky - Technically, thats everyones dog here who has a Siberian husky. Its the name of the breeder, where its said the breed originally came from. So essentially, there is no such thing. There is just a Siberian husky. Seppela sled dog - This is also technically not a breed. They are what tends to be used in serious sled dog racing. They are a mix of breeds which are specifically selected for in order to maximise the capabilities of what you are looking for in a dog (bred for power, or speed, or intelligence etc) Agouti Husky - This is basically a Siberian husky, which is darker in colour, due to a higher level of eumelanin. If you were buying a human, you may as well be saying "I have a red head human" or "I have an Indian". Genetic testing - Most of the genetic tests you go for within general peoples budget, are money spinners. They will give you a general idea, but many will not come out the same. There is actually an ongoing genome project for dogs in which is not yet complete, so technically even an expert could not be 100% accurate. They can however through lineages etc. Research - As already mentions briefly by Nix, she has been reading books on the subject. These are a good source of reference if you go to the right places, and also research the authors. If you are reading things around the internet, you are likely to get incorrect information and treat it as fact. Just to emphasise that fact, if you look around at our site, look at how many people state something which is simply incorrect. Once you have done that, check how well we rank for the word Siberian husky, and that particular issue. We're probably quite high. As a forum with over a million posts, and masses of information, you would certainly be forgiven for thinking we are a source of reference. Lastly, chill out people FFS LOL. We're a forum for like minded owners of huskies. Not a company, Not a breeders site, not a working site, but a forum built by husky owners, for husky owners. (Honestly, I know, I built it! LOL). @Jaylo - In answer to your original question. I have no idea what breed. He looks like he may be a mix, but then I have seen many many huskies that I would have said the same about and been incorrect. The only 100% accurate way in which to find out is to try and track his family tree. At some point you will likely find club records from breeders. At that point, you will know. Either way, he is lovely so who cares!

    Hi everyone! It’s been a few years since I’ve been on so I’ll reintroduce myself. I’m Jennet, I live in Eau Claire, WI with my husband and our 4 Huskies and 2 Cats. Our pack started with Embry, who now will be 9 in October, Zoey turns 8 in 2 weeks, Ares is 6.5 and baby Murdock is 5.5 months. We recently added Murdock to our pack about a month ago now from a rescue in Minnesota. He is originally from Kentucky but was surrendered to a shelter there because his breeder couldn’t sell him do to a birth defect. Murdock is 100% blind and was born without eyes. He’s still a crazy Husky puppy so don’t feel sorry for him, he doesn’t even know he’s blind! In the last few years we picked up urban mushing and sledding. We just do it for fun though, no competing for us 😂 Hopefully Murdock will be able to participate in wheel in the fall, but we’ll see! Hopefully I’ll be able to have more time now that I am only working one job to be on here more often

    We raw-feed but don't use "fillers" like rice or potato which contribute zero benefit - nor do we give any significant amounts of raw fruit or veg for the same reason. We do keep a vague eye on "balancing" their food over a period of time (over weeks never mind days or each meal) but go for variety of lamb, chicken, salmon, and, their favourite, tripe (either from our raw food supplier, market or reductions in the supermarket). Personally, if you're after increasing weight, I'd recommend lamb and lamb tripe - both excellent.

    To me this is made up purely to sell their supplement. It cannot really be called raw with serving cooked eggs, & rice. The main writing is too small to make out - can you please supply the original link? One thing I would say about the raw vegetables is that they say 'chopped' - which could mean 1" chunks - any raw veg needs to be minced or mashed/blended. Dogs are notorious for not chewing their food - and they have few digestive enzymes to cope with vegetables. Wild dogs usually go for the intestines in their prey as the vegetation inside the intestines is already partly digested for them. I do feed raw veg to my boys - mainly brussel sprouts, carrots, celery etc - peas are a no for me as they are too starchy - which causes inflammation. I've just checked out the ingredients - and I am not that impressed I am afraid. After whey protein isolate and pea protein the next largest ingredient is corn syrup solids. Corn syrup has no place in a dog's diet - then comes vegetable oil as the next highest ingredient - this, like the fish oil is easily turned rancid once the pack is opened. https://www.snowdog.guru/correcting-zinc-deficiency-in-huskies/ the two paragraphs below are copied from this link - Mediocre dog food manufacturers add zinc to dog food but they add a cheap source of Zinc Oxide or Sulphate to their food. These forms are not easily absorbed or used by the body so it can be easy to assume that your dog is getting enough Zinc in his diet because of what it says on the dog food label. Zinc forms ranked from best to worst: Zinc citrate, picolinate and gluconate are very easily absorbable and well utilized by your dog’s body. ( 25mgs up to 100mgs daily) Chelated Zinc does not bind to iron so it tends to upset the stomach less than some other forms of Zinc but maybe slightly less absorbable than picolinate and gluconate forms.( dosage is the same as above) Zinc Methionine combines Zinc with Methionine and is reasonably well utilized in most dogs. ( 40 mgs daily dosage) Zinc Sulphate tends to be very hard on the stomach causing unnecessary stomach upset. For that reason it is recommended that it be crushed and added in with food but this also makes it less absorbable. ( 200mgs daily dosage) Zinc Oxide is a very cheap and highly un-absorbable form of Zinc. Sadly this is the form of Zinc being used by most mid to low end dog food manufacturers. No wonder so many Snow Dogs suffer from Zinc Deficiency. I notice that both the zinc and manganese are both sulphates which are difficult to absorb and can cause upsets and inflammation. At least they mentioned baked potato - but the sweet potato is better for a dog than the white potato. White potatoes are too high in starch. Do you have a badly malnourished dog? A rescue maybe? Personally I would just feed a well balanced raw diet - blend any raw veg so the bits are as small as possible, raw eggs, spirulina (1/16th teaspoon daily). I suspect that if this supplement is fed to a 'normal' dog it would soon lead to it becoming fat.

    This is stuff that's important to learn in depth well in advance of allowing her to mate, rather than a week in advance. Your vet and established breeders are the best people to ask for advice, people who have experience in breeding dogs. If you do insist on going ahead with this mating hopefully the stud owner is experienced and knows how to handle the dogs to avoid injuries, but please consider not going ahead, at least until her next season. Spend the next 6 months talking to actual breeders, vets, researching what can go wrong and how to prevent/deal with it, and also how to breed ethically. You are honestly doing her no favours and putting her at risk if you go ahead next week
