  • Biography
    Just retired as of Jan 10th! I've had several dogs in the past, two Bassett Hounds, a Shih--Tzu and Pomeranian (both passed away in 2017, the Shih-Tzu, MuShu, was 12 and the Pomeranian, Willie, was 10. We also have three cats. My wife and I both thought after mourning the loss of our boys for all of 2018 that getting another dog would be good for the both of us, and began our search for a Siberian. My wife had a Siberian and an Alaskan Malamute when she was young, and I had always admired the breed and read a couple of books about them, and decided a Siberian would be our next dog. We brought home Reno Jan 11th! Now starts the Siberian education!
  • Interests
    Love motorcycles (BMWs) and saltwater aquariums. Also learning to play the bass guitar.
  1. I can use some good honest advice here. I don't know much about what brand works best and is most recommended, but I figure I can get some recommendations from you guys and gals with the experience! Also, is there a recommended treats to give for good behavior?
  2. Thanks, all! I have a bazillion questions ready to fire of to anyone bored enough to read stuff that's been asked so many time before, like recommendations for a puppy food. I'm prepared to do whatever it takes to get Reno crate-trained and housebroken. I'll get up with him every hour during the night if necessary. We live in the northwest corner of SC, so I don't think I'll have to worry too much about copperheads or gators!
  3. Hi, my wife Pattimarie and I will pick up our Husky baby Jan. 10th and are excited to start our Husky love affair! We've had a couple of small breeds (Pomeranian and Shih-Tzu) in the past that we kept for over 11 years before they passed away in 2017, and we mourned their loss until this past Christmas. I told Pattimarie I really wanted another dog, and she agreed that she was ready to love another dog as well. She had experience with a Siberian Husky when she was young, and said she loved it. I agreed that a Husky would make a fine choice for us. We started looking right after Christmas and found a family with a litter of beautiful 10-week old Husky puppies. One of the puppies stood out as being "the one" for us. Just at like that, the deal was done! I retire on Jan. 10th and wanted to be home with our pup from day one, so we decided to pick up our new pup on Jan. 11th. I' excited and a little frightened, since it has been a long time since we had a baby in our house! I hope we don't bother the crap out of everyone on this forum with dumb questions! We look forward to learning from you folks! I'll post a pick later today of our new baby. Thanks! John
