  1. We keep our plastic milk and soda/soft drink containers - take off the lid and seal rings. Then fill with kibble/treats and let them go for it! Obviously it's a once-off 'puzzle toy' as they DESTROY the bottles but my girls get so much stimulation from it and run some energy out, especially on rainy days when a walk isn't possible. No squeaks but I hope it helps Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Yes excited and looking forward to D-day Sarah. Feels so close but so far away at the same time! Good point mydiamond. Thankfully she isn't a jealous dog at all and moves away when our other husky Zara approaches for some snuggle time so fingers crossed we won't have any issues. Have had lots of friends with babies visit over the last few months. They've both been inquisitive but responded well to our commands. We'll take it slowly but at this stage are confident they will accept the new addition well Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I'm 8 months pregnant and Foxy Lady has gotten so protective and snuggly lately. Both dogs follow me around a lot more now and lay at my feet but Foxy just can't get close enough the past week. I'm starting to think a husky head is growing on my shoulder ? It's very sweet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. No to 'pack walk' to establish dominance, but yes to 'pack walk' in terms of walking both dogs together to improve their relationship dynamic and behaviour. Walks with both dogs once we took on our rescue were so vitally important to reinforce what was expected of both of them, and any time they get a little grumpy with each other a side-by-side walk quickly sorts them out. They walk on a short shock-proof (bungee type) lead with double attachment so have to work in unison to both have a comfortable walk. At 8 months pregnant now I so miss walking them, can't wait to get back to it! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Long time between updates. Life has been busy, two months til we welcome a (human) baby into our home! I've finally slowed down a little with work, which means more time with our beauties. Zara is settling and coming out of the puppy phase. Don't get me wrong, she's still nuts but has a lot more 'dopey' and relaxed time during the day. Our beautiful brown-eyed rescue, Foxy, is really making progress. Her fitness and activity levels have improved infinitely. She's excited by food, pats, visitors and just has a zest for life (very different to the hesitant, shy, cowering girl we first picked up). She's learnt fetch and hi-5, proving even senior citizen pooches can learn new tricks We've been having a lot of children and babies visit and the girls are doing beautifully. Our room, the living room and nursery all window out to their yard and they love lounging outside whichever room we are in. I can imagine the baby having two very loyal guardian dogs at the window when he/she comes home! We're having unseasonably warm May days down under, sunny and 25 degrees Celsius today 💕 perfect for lounging around outside with the pups! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Is there anything you use to keep her coat so white and fluffy? Gorgeous xx Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Glad to hear Luca is back home safe after his little adventure. The joys of huskies! Good luck with your newest addition, two huskies = infinite love, affection and entertainment. One of our girls was a rescue and having two huskies was the best decision we ever made. Love them to bits and just can't imagine life without them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. We're expecting a baby late July. I've always thought the fluffballs have been good practise for staying disciplined with rules, etc. But just like kids they have grandpa wrapped around their.... Paws. Rule: no dogs on chairs. Grandpas' amendment: if the dog wants to be on the chair it can stay, so long as it hi-5's, shakes hands and pulls a cute face. (She then pushed it and jumped onto his lap... AND HE LET HER STAY!) Needless to say I'm thinking this baby will be spoilt rotten by grandpa! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. This pic pretty much sums up our girls personalities. Zara the show off. Foxy Lady the pro ignorer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. ... Means sitting very still because your bestie is laying comfortably on your big fluffy husky tail 💕 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I think they would LOVE husky camp! Not so sure how much they'd love the 24 hour flight 😔 But if anyone's keen on an Aussie instalment of UK husky camp I'm all ears! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I've been filling in the same hole every day since! There really must be something yummy down there that they just can't get to 😉 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. It's been HOT here (42 degrees) so other than morning walks the girls have been getting cabin fever! No walk today as it finally cooled down and poured with rain. The pups must really love that wet stuff... The dug a hole half way to London trying to find more!! Busted! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Zara was extremely attached to naps in her puppy crate, we had to sell it as we were getting worried about her squishing herself in there lol! She had a new spacious kennel but just wouldn't use it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
