  1. My hubby knows that the pecking order in this house is Marley, Mikey, then him. As for the money - cannot help. I am also married to a skinflint - but I earned my own money. Having been married before, I learned from past mistakes. Separate bank accounts. Who does the shopping for food - clothes etc? If it is you then you should be able to squirrel away something.
  2. I really dont know what to suggest for you - except can you get a more suitable apartment?
  3. I have a family (son and grandson), but thanks to lockdown restrictions I have not seen them for around 20 months (they live around 350 miles away in Wales) -- but my two fur babies get mentioned in practically every conversation I have with anyone - even supermarket checkout girls!. They are such a big part of my life, why would I not mention them. If anyone thinks that is strange - that's fine by me - I just dont talk to them again! You are my type of person - self sufficient, grow your own food, keep chickens, love your dog to the point of distraction and not afraid t
  4. PLEASE don't tell Marley !!! We have just planted a lilac tree. I really don't want him to know they are good to chew !!!
  5. What colouring are her parents? They change so much in their first 6 months - at 12 weeks one of my boys was light grey and white - he is now black and white - black on top and white underside.
  6. I am sorry but we dont seem to have any experience with anything like this - hope is good news when you see the vet (i.e. nothing to be concerned about) - please keep us updated.
  7. A Lady like Duchess would expect a glass bowl at least (in the absence of a silver bowl) She certainly looks like she is making herself at home - although I would be trying to find her escape-routes ............. as they get older they tend to come back less and less. Welcome to the forum.
  8. I splurted my morning coffee onto my keyboard when this came up !!! I think Blu would get on great with Marley - here is a shot of him as a pup He had had his first bath the day before. You can tell he was laughing - and extremely pleased with himself. What is it with huskies and mud?
  9. One of my boys regularly skips a day of feeding - the other would eat twice that amount if he could. 23 kilos sounds a little high to me for such a young dog - is he a really big boned boy? One of my boys is 3" taller, longer and much much stronger than my other boy - and weighs around 5 kilos more, - so there is quite a bit of leeway. It is difficult to guage with no photo. Providing he is not vomitting or appearing to be ill I would not worry too much. YOu do not say what you are feeding him,is it possible to try something new?
  10. Is there any dietary/medical reason you do not feed him other meats or fish? (I have a food allergic husky that is on a restricted diet). Whole sardine or herring would balance out the fats in chicken and ruminants, and help replenish the vitamins/DHA/EPA and provide all 10 essential amino acids (essential because the dog cannot manufacture these himself so must be gotten from food) etc - some of which mainly come from things like brain and eyes Supplements are good (my dogs are on quite a few obviously) - but can not take the place of a balanced diet. I am afraid I have never heard
  11. Hi Huskiemama, I am sure I misunderstood your post, is chicken feet the only thing you feed your dog, because that is how I read it.
  12. At that age the father would not see him as a threat if the mother is coming into/out of season - so go for it. The breeder will know her dogs (parents) temperament about meeting growing pups that are coming back for visits.
  13. When you think Blu is ready - message me - I can probably help. I changed Marley over to raw the day after I got him at 12 weeks - he has food allergies/epileptic etc (no vet meds) - and the only reason he is still alive is because he was raw fed. Paw licking could not only be food allergies - but possibly environmental allergies. However a home cooked balanced diet is the second best thing you can give your pup - keep it up.
  14. I must admit I am against neutering for almost any reason - except in cases like this. I must agree with the above - your boy needs this op.
  15. There are a few reasons why puppies bite - one being that they were taken from their siblings and mum too early - One of my boys was taken from his mum and siblings at around 6 weeks old (he was 12 weeks when I got him and his 4th owner)- and I had a real problem teaching him not to nip me. I started to yelp loudly (like a hurt puppy) every time he did, and walked away from him the way his siblings would have done, stopping any play or fuss that was going on at the time. It took LOTS of patience, repetion and time, but by the time he was 12 months old he had stopped nipping and mouthi
