  1. Do you have time for a new one? Do you have space? Do your other furbabies need another playmate (don't answer that - of course they do) - at the end of the day only you know the answer to your question. For some (not many) one is enough - I thought it was - but it isn't and have just had my homecheck for another one - don't know how we did - but Marley my husky passed with flying colours - so am hopeful
  2. Is there an upper limit??????? Providing you can care for them, feed them, and give them what they need - have a hundred!
  3. My husky has long fur (woolly) but has the characteristic black and white colouration. I checked back on my photos and Marley did not develop the curly tail until he was around 5-6 months old - not one picture before that showed him with his tail curled. My boy also has brown eyes. I've seen many huskies with big ears - the dogs usually grow into them. Each dog is different - as are we - we are a composite of our genetics - you saw your furbaby as a puppy with his siblings and his parents - don't let other's who probably dont know the breed sufficiently well make you doubt - i.e. do they own huskies? Have they seen the vast range in colours from black, red, agouti, white, blue eyed, bi-eyed, brown eyed? Are they experienced dog breed judges? 95% of people cannot tell a husky from a Malamute. At the end of the day does it really matter what other people think? There is a senior member on here who also has a pure white husky. Love your gorgeous white husky furbaby and foget those doubting Thomas'
  4. My heart goes out to you and Luna - wishing her the will to keep fighting, and a speedy recovery. Fingers and paws crossed for her.
  5. If the incision site is still red then there is at least a small amount of infection there - do you have any calendula officinalis (pot marigold flowers) if you have the flowers steep them in hot water compressing the flowers occasionally, then bathe the area with the water (once cooled) several times a day. Better still if you have calendula tincture apply it several times a day - the wound should have healed sufficiently for the tincture not to sting. I would certainly take back to the vet.

    Oh my God - sorry to hear about your neighbour - but what a nice way to go out walking with your dog.

    He has an oldish cat - Socks - our 14 year old long suffering soul that has spent his life with up to three dogs at a time. Marley is now much more like his old self, is learning to walk(fairly) nicly on lead - and has at last been trusted on a 30ft lead - and I am amazed at how calm he is on it - even when mildly attacked (again) by a staffie last Thursday - he just stood there - dodged the snaps that got too close to his face - but didn't try to move away - neither did he cower down - just stood there and let the idiotic dog get on with it - whilst the pathetic owner said "he's only playing" - yeah right - with fangs bared so hard his nose was pushed upwards ! Needless to say the dog was off lead ! There is a possibility of a new playmate arriving soon - but we are not telling Marley yet
  8. This is what my wooly husky looked like at 12 weeks
  9. With Marley as a very young pup the only thing he would take was hot dog sausages. Then he turned his nose up at them. The only thing I could get him interested in was dehydrated liver. Worth a try?
  10. Special diet ???
  11. That's why I make my dog treats - I know exactly what is in them - good quality meat - grass fed beef and lamb. No pesticides, no chemicals, no gmo, no additives.
  12. Sounds as if he might have been taken from his mother & siblings too early to learn bite inhibition, before you got him. My Marley also had the same problem, but I got him at around 12 weeks old so was easier to retrain. Whenever he used to nip I yelped like a sibling would and turned my back on him and walked away/stopped play time etc. I also used 'time out' i.e. removed him from the room. If these simple things do not work you might have to look into a behavourist - others on here will be able to give you more suggestions.
