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.

I've been told that its a 'flaw' for a husky to have a curled tail, and Nala's is almost curled in a perfect O most of the time but I'm curious as to why or how that is considered a 'flaw'? Of course in my eyes shes going to be perfect lol but does that mean that somewhere down the line she has Malamute, I don't know kind of talking out of my butt here I'm just a little confused..

The tail is an extension of the spine therefore a curled tail would not be as dynamic in a working dog as a straight tail (more streamline).

Lani (HuskyMom09) has gone into this in depth in various places around the forum. And I'm on my phone so I can't link to her explanation.

If you check out the thread about tails lifting up, she posted some info there. Smile

Oh okay! So for a working dog they shouldn't have a curled tail. Got it!

I'm sure there is more to it than that but huskies aren't supposed to have curly tails like that. Being on my phone I can't really dignore much more into it. Lol.

I really found this tail stuff interesting (including all of Lani's stuff) - my first Siberian, Sasha, used to carry her tail high (sort of 30° from vertical) and just the slightest curve. I was always disappointed it wasn't more curled, thought it was a fault. Then Ami has this enormous waterfall tail with a full curve that just touches his back. Thought it quite neat, and much more correct (except for all the hair - I could do with a bit less - though he is absolutely gorgeous in full running - his fur positively flows!)

I may have to take another look at her tail because I'[m almost positive it curls pretty tight but I cant seem to remember what it looks like lol
