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

PostSubject: Hello All, my name is Jeff   Tue Aug 06, 2013 10:36 am

Wanted to do the proper introduction, I have been stalking the forums for about a month now reading and enjoying many of the posts.

My name is Jeff Brown and Maya is my 3rd Pure Breed Husky. Chinook was my first one (well actually my dad's since I was 5 years old), but her and I was a team. We did everything together. She passed a few years later. When I was at Fort Knox, I was leading a transport team to Frankfort and as I was going through a couple of small towns, I see a man have a dog strangling her with the chain. I was in the lead of the transport, I slammed on the breaks ran full speed up the hill, and demanded that man to let the dog down now. Let's just say a little bit more convincing took place and I took the dog from him (thank you 1st lieutenant McKensy for not allowing me to shoot him), called the Sheriff and reported him. This came to me as Blu, she was the first Husky with both Blue eyes and I didn't know her name, so Blu it was. Blu was extremely beaten in many ways, her teeth were rounded down from biting on the chain trying to get free. The last 5 years of her life was royalty.

She started getting very aggressive and killed 2 strays that came near her. I took her to the vet and found that brain cancer had taken her far more severe then could be cured. She wasn't eating anymore because of the poor teeth problems and her brain just wasn't functioning anymore, I couldn't even breath, I don't even remember giving the orders, but I do remember laying with her for a couple of hours. It was like loosing a daughter.

Over 10 years passed and I told myself I will not get another animal, they are messy, need too much attention, need training, money, food, time... Blah, Blah, Blah...

I then met Courtney, and her Pomeranian Shih Tzu was tearing up her couch, tearing up her nieces toys, pooping in the house, and being just crazy... This dog was Satan's spawn. Trying to impress her I said, let me take him (Ralph), home with me and let me see what I can do. I started a regiment of training, walking and leashing exercises walked him around the park, and trained the positive in him. When she would come over, he would be laying in the chair and she asked me several times did I drug him? (The answer is no, I wore him out). We have been together for about a year now.

Last month, I was presented with Maya, she is an un-spayed AKC Registered Siberian Husky that has been chained outside for the last 3 months, it didn't even take me a second to say "yes, I will take her". Now I hope to learn as much as I can, and look for the things I missed throughout my dog years.

Thanks for listening and a pic of Maya is my Avatar.

When we first got her, she was dirty from being outside.


Next morning after the groomers and vet. She had 3 ticks on her.
