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.

A foster failure that is! Cool

I mentioned it in the hijack earlier, but figured I'd finally post some pictures of Butthead Denali.  So, without further adieu, here goes:

Wishing for more snow today


First time out with the new x-backs


Denali's first snow


Denali the snuggle-butt

He's gorgeous! It's so nice to see that he's going to be somewhere with someone who knows about Huskies! Also can I ask how you like the xback harnesses? do you have them attached to a skijoring belt?

Yep, this dog is an absolute natural In a harness. He's still very young to be pulling and running so I'm really limiting his harness time and watching very carefully. I'm working under the guidance of my vet too. He's thriving with the work though Smile

I LOVE these harnesses. They're the Alpine Outfitters ones, and I do use a Nordkyn musher's belt. I tell you that belt is the best $50 I've spent in a while, it's great for running, hiking, and joring.

Yay, no better failure than a foster failure! He looks like he fits right into the family. I love his sweet face. Looks like he's nice and compact, too, and has a pretty nice running body. Wishing you lots of companionship and fun with your "failure." Smile

All the boys are buttheads, but they are worth every moment of buttheadedness (is that a word?). They are so snuggly compared to the aloof girls. I'm glad he has a happy, wonderful home.

How old is he, Meredith?

I'd say buttheadedness is absolutely a word, and he'll be 9 months next week.

Thanks, everyone! He really is a good fit and is a great addition to our pack. Now if only I could convince Aaron to let me get an entire team...
