Forum Rules
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.

Where do you live or what is the weather like? Are there distinct seasons?
What are you feeding her?
Are you absolutely certain she is all husky and not a mixed breed?

Huskies have different coat types and they can sometimes have a shorter coat. My huskies coat is considered short and I myself am waiting for the rest of his puppy coat to fall out so his tail can stop looking so thin.

Be careful what you wish for  Laughing - when we got Ami, his tail was a scrawny bottle brush. The shelter said he had almost no coat when he was seized. Well, he has coat now and while he probably is not a wooly, he comes pretty damn close - his tail is a huge plume, definitely a fault according to husky mom's diagram. It may be the weather for him - he is outdoor dog in upstate NY and we had a very cold winter. So far, with coat blowing, we've lost half a dog -"big boy" does not quite apply anymore Very Happy  Doesn't matter - he's my beautiful "butterscotch sundae", sweet as can be, a love and he is ours for good!

I had the papers I got her straight from a breeder... dont know what I did with them... she is pure Husky. Vet always sais shes healthy as can be. She gets fed blue buffalo or whatever that is with the wolf on front haha. I live in MD been here with her a little over a year before that NC for the first year and half of her life. It has distinct seasons, and we just had a horrible winter and are just now getting into spring.
