  1. Just stopped in to look around. It's been a good long time since I was last seen in these parts. Zoya is now ten. She tore her second cruciate ligament last fall. Surgery was seccessful, but she re-injured her right rear leg about a month ago. She is still on the mend. Rohn remains his goofy self. Full of vim and vigor. Always wooing at me. The little bugger. Luke, our rescue is always looking for something to catch. Yesterday he treed a neighbor's cat. A few week's back he caught a possum. Two days ago, he took out after a fox. As I get older, I've come to realize that working for a livi
  2. Been a long while since I've posted. Many here will remember me, and many will wonder who the heck is this guy? Just wanted to wish everyone here, a most wonderous and enjoyable Christmas, furbabies as well. And from the three amigos, Zoya, Rohn, and Luke - Woo-woo Woo-woo! (That's Merry Christmas in Husky Speak.) Rohn Zoya Luke
  3. What was your mom doing when your dog attacked? Is you dog intact, or has he been neutered? Have you had your vet check him to see if he has any health issues causing him pain? How many hours of human interaction per day with your dog? You indicate he has bitten before, that he is food aggressive, and he is territorial. Most dogs will growl before they bite, Some people try and train the growling out of the equation (not a good idea); sometimes they do so without realizing. If your dog growled and your mom ignored the growl, then the dog is not at fault. It would really hel
  4. Gosh, it's been awhile. Work has me traveling more these days. My employer split our department into two departments - one Training; the other Documentation. I was asked to head up Documentation. So I have to split my time between two locations - eastern Iowa and northern Kentucky. Zoya still rules the roost. Her cruciate ligament surgery from a couple years back remains in good check. She recently had her ninth birthday. It's hard to believe that she is nine. She still runs a bit, but not like she used to. When she tore her cruciate ligament, she was running. I imagine she still remember
  5. Just saw this on the news. Nineteen fatalities and 50 injured. Report said those numbers could rise. Officials tagging it as an act of terrorism. Prayers for those in attendance.
  6. Furminators be d***d. They both damage the guard hairs and they can strip the guard hairs. Not a good grooming tool for a Husky.
  7. Welcome to the forum and congratulations. Kudos for adopting.
  8. Bladder control does not really kick in until a male is about three to four months old. Are there other pets in the house That can make potty training more difficult. During the night, is anyone taking him out on a schedule? With Zoya (female) and Rohn (male), I got up every two hours every night for their first six months and took each one out for potty time. Thank goodness they are five years apart. Bladder capacity at eight weeks, is about full every hour and a half to two hours. Play, drink, or eat, and that time is cut to five to ten minutes. Bladder capacity does not hit the overnight
  9. You are lucky the rocks have been thrown up. I would muzzle the pup when outside. A small rock that passes from the stomach can lodge in the intestine. If that happens, you will need to get your dog to a vet very quickly. Surgery is often the only option.

    No guard coat

    Don't let a furminator attack your dog's coat. Not only can they damage the guard hairs, they can strip the guard hairs. If the follicles remain with the guard hairs that are stripped, new guard hairs may not return.
  11. I would not have used alcohol. Saline solution would be my choice. Keep it clean. I would have your vet check it over. There is an illness called cat scratch fever, due to the amount of bacteria on cats claws. If there is any redness, swelling, weepage, don't wait too long before visiting your vet.
  12. It appears to be the refracted light exiting the pupil.

    Stepping Down

    Same back at you. Sent from my LG-US996 using Husky Owners mobile app
  14. Came across this quote sometime back, and thought it really puts into perspective the relationship between a human and a dog. The fidelity of a dog is a precious gift demanding no less binding moral responsibilities than the friendship of a human being. The bond with a dog is as lasting as the ties of this earth can ever be. ~Conrad Lorenz
  15. Every dog is different. Ours are short hair Huskies. On the two we've had since pups, the old guard hairs left as the new guard hairs appeared. That happened somewhere between ten and twelve months on one, and between nine and ten months on the other. If you were to furrow down to the skin, you may see the new guard hairs coming in.
