1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited.

Hi everyone! My name is Melinda. Me and my fiancé just got a beautiful two year old husky three days ago from a rescue. It was a huge step for me since I had to put my dog of 17 years down two years ago. I had all this built up puppy love ready to give. Smile In the last few days my husky "Bella" has been great. I am a huge clean freak and knew how much they shed so that is taking some getting used to. I am also getting used to being followed around all the time. My other dog the one I had to put Dow "Corgi/American Eskimo mix never did that .lol. We live in an apartment but are active runners..bikers...hikers..So Bella will be outside often.Just wondering if anyone had advice for a new owner. Thanks so much.

Congrats on adopting Bella. I think it just takes time with a rescue there are alot of topics on huskies and issues. We adopted our second husky at 2 years old it has been a year now and we have had our ups and downs but she is really become a member of our family. It just takes time and work on the training.

Look forward to seeing pictures of Bella.

Whoa that pic came out big. That is my Bella! It has been three days and I adore her. I have OCD with cleaning so I am finding myself vacuuming twice a day . That takes some getting used to . If anyone can help me and let me know how I can change my profile aviator I would appreciate it .

Thanks So Much Smile

Thank You All. Smile I was wondering if any of you had allergy symptoms when you first got your Husky. I have had Bella for 3 days and I have found myself with a stuffy nose and itching now and then. Again, I owned a dog for 17 years and never once had a problem . I was just wondering if it is normal sometimes with Huskies.

Thanks Smile

I just want to say congrats on your new sibe. We rescued our first in 2001 and it took some learning curves but we totally fell in love with the breed. You asked about the allergies...we have allergy problems when they blow their coats which always falls during high pollen seasons. I also know that when the pups come in from outside they are carrying additional pollen on their coats. I think that the shedding aggravates other allergy problems.
I wish you luck on keeping of with the fur. It does lessen during the peek of summer and dead of winter for us.

Welcome! I have found that brushing everyday keeps the carpet fuzz down quite a bit. You and I are the same on the neat freak bit and vacuum twice a day haha... but you'll get used to it, as they say, "Once you do something 14 times it is now a habit." Your husky is beautiful, bless you both!
