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.

PostSubject: Maui- our 15 month foster   Thu Jan 06, 2011 2:58 pm

Here is an update so far!
i think maui and sierra have had 3-4 fights and they were all over the rawhides so as of this morning they are gone!
our walk last night went well, she was better on the leash then our two. she knows heal and when told she will heal on the leash and sit at your feet i was super impressed with that, i was "showing" sierra and jack how to do that but they looked at me like i was crazy and just figured maui was showing off Wink i was up a bit during bed time cause she was not settling down but she figured it out and curled up on the dog bed and went to sleep. i did wake up in the middle of the night with her spread across the foot of the bed! ken got up for work let maui and jack out as sierra never goes till i get up and they came back up stairs and her and jack jumped on the bed and went back to sleep till i got up, we had a good rub session in bed when i got up and she was growing some and i was nervous (it did not sound friendly) but figured it was a good grow and kept giving her belly rubs. i took all 3 out for a long walk this morning and i started to mix her food and the costco food together and she woofed it down, she did not eat much last night. we will be heading to wall mart for a water and food dish for her and maybe more of a "girl" collar.
i caught myself wanting to call her willow last night but figured i should not try to change her name but i like that so much more then maui. she is in her crate with a rawhide and some water and S&J are roaming the lower level so i hope all goes well.
and now some pictures and video! you can really see how TALL she is next to Jack. i was reading her paper work and the guy that owned her got her from a friend whos huskies had puppies. its so sad to see how big she is due to the BYB.

She looks lovely and it's good to hear how well they are all getting along so far! She does look tall compared to Jack but I don't know how tall Jack is to compare. She does look like a big girl and that's got to be the tightest tail curl I've ever seen on a husky! Looks more like the curl of an Akita or pug. lol She looks great and I hope everything continues to go well for all of you no matter what you decide to do with her in the long run. I like Willow more than Maui too. Wink

I thought she'd be as tall as Jack but she's taller! Holy Smokes!
I'm glad everything is working out so far. And when I saw her Monday at the surrender, I thought the pulled pretty hard on the leash, but if she's easier than S&J, that's great!

Jack and sierra are close to breed regulations on height. when i was walking them i had right to left, sierra, jack and maui and man i wish i had a picture of that, reminded me of the phone tv add showing their "bars" using real objects!

OMG- that was my first thought too!

Jenn, she's so cute playing with them Smile And that's our rule too. No treats, toys or rawhides with new dogs or visiting dogs. Too much temptation to quarrel. They'll work it out eventually and be able to share. We reintroduced them slowly after 1 month.

Odin got into 2 fights when he first came. Over bones and then treat time. Now he's like one of the pack and we don't have any issues. I think everyones just trying to claim their space and place in the house in the beginning.

And my gosh she's tall! Can't believe her tail is so tightly curled, even more so than Mickeys!
