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. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: First husky puppy for me in Southern California - meet Eris   Sun Jun 09, 2013 6:10 am

I've had my puppy for about 2 months. She's 4 months old today.

She's my first Siberian Husky, but I fell in love with the breed in my last year of high school and I've been waiting for several years to be able to bring one of these amazing dogs home with me. I finally have the land, space and time to devote to an active dog like this and I'm very excited to have her now.

She is, hands down, the most amazing dog I've ever encountered - she's so very intelligent, alert, playful, friendly, sociable, and good-natured. She has a wonderful, bright, entertaining personality of her own. She's never aggressive or wary toward other dogs or any animal at all, really. She loves cats, and, I've recently found that she likes to nuzzle frogs (or any other animal that will tolerate he for a few minutes before running off) She's got a few little behavior blips, but they're part of being a puppy - teething, nipping at hands when playing, etc She's gentle and affectionate and considerate of my 4 year old son and any other child that approaches her. I really couldn't have asked for a better pup.

I always knew I wanted to have a Husky around but I've fallen so in love with her that within the next year or so, I want to bring one more home. I'd like another female, but would consider a male if they got along well. Right now, she's very laid back with every person or animal she meets and it would be nice if she stayed that way. Very Happy I'm doing everything I know to do to keep her engaged and feeling like she's loved and part of the "pack", so to speak, or our family, of course. She fits in well.

Currently, I'm the only person she responds to in terms of commands or correction. She will only walk on a leash if I'm the one holding it, otherwise, she sits down and waits for me to come to her and walk with her, she follows simple commands well, if I give them and listens to "no" and "stop", if I'm the one saying it. It frustrates my husband because he expects her to listen to him too, but she's pretty well decided I'm the leader, I think. He doesn't spend near as much time with her as I do because he travels for work.

Sorry for the ramble. Here are some pictures Very Happy





the pictures above were taken when I brought her home, she was 8 weeks



She was 3 months there



the most recent photo of her, about a week ago

and just for fun, this is her father:


I do have a photo of her mother, who is also black and white with blue eyes, but I'm pretty sure she gets her looks from her dad.
