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.

Malamute, Shiba Inu, Alaskan Klee Kai, Akita, Eskimo, Chow chow, German Shepard (I get asked all the time because my husky is pure white), Keeshound, Kuvasz, Elkhound, Samoyed ..... There are some commonly mixed up northern breeds... I mean a lot don't look anything like a husky, but some people just don't know blue skies from green grass... hope I named the one you were looking for.

With Mishka and Kohdi, pretty much everyone just says Husky...but when I had Malukhai and Anuschka, Malukhai got "Akita" a lot when he was younger (puppy) and "wolf" as he got older, and Anuschka got "White wolf", ALL the time, haha (she was silver and white but very very light) this is a pic of Malukhai as a young puppy and I can actually see why someone would say "Akita" but still...he was pure husky!!!

Lycus is also a very light silver and white but more than anything, he gets the GSD (asides from husky or wolf).
