PostSubject: Zeus and Zena   Fri Apr 17, 2015 3:15 pm

Our new babies…Zeus and Zena   They will be eight weeks on Tuesday.  They are doing pretty awesome with crate and leash training/in and out of home.  They love to go outside and I practically have to drag them back inside, lol.  They are indoor huskies, but not sure they are pleased with that.  They love running around on the pool deck and have even stuck a paw or two in the water already.  Zena is a crazy howler/talker already…has to always tell me all about it.  Zeus seems to enjoy barking more than howling, but will get going with her.  He’s more chill and she’s a bit on the high-strung spectrum…haha!!  I stay at home with them all day, so they are only crated at night and when I need to run out somewhere.  Zeus is a rockstar when it comes to the potty department and has never had an accident inside.  Zena is more of a diva and does not like to wait longer than two whines at the door.  You better have your sprinting shoes on or you’ll be cleaning up after her…though only #1, has always gone #2 outside.  They both want to drink water like they have been walking in the desert for a week.  At six and a half weeks Zeus weighed 9.6 lbs and Zena weighed 7.3.  Zeus’s dad is a big boy, too!!  They go to the vet on the 21st at 8 weeks and I will have them weighed again.  He looks to be twice the size of her, but she can hold her own!!  They half cousins.  Their dads are half brothers…share the same dad and have different moms.  Both of the litters were born on the same day.  It has been neat to look through their pedigree/bloodlines!!  They are eating Canidae Pure for puppies…seem to be doing pretty good on it so far.  Even after researching for more than a year on this breed, nothing can quite prepare you fully!!!  I have seen MANY Husky traits in the short time I have had them home.  They have me laughing one minute and pulling my hair out the next..hahahaa!!!  Can’t wait to watch them grow 

Zeus and Zena




I thought Zena’s left eye was going to turn brown, but as the time passes, it is a mix of green with a bluish and hazel color.  This isn’t the best pic, will have to try for another with outside natural light as it is gorgeous!!


Look Mom…we know the water is up there!!



Always sleeping buddies!! Had to use one of my old baby gates to keep them away from the 100+ year-old wooden kitchen table!!!

Oh my - looks like you may have 2 woolies on your hands.  I have only 1 piece of advice:  Get them used to grooming ASAP.  My boy is a wooly and hates grooming - teasing out knots is not an option most of the time, it becomes a grab the knot in one hand, the scissors in the other and snip before he runs away.  But don't let him see the scissors lol!

Those are 2 adorable puppies.  Google wooly, if you haven't already.

Ohmygosh. They're so cute!! You're going to have a blast with them two. They're going to be beautiful when they get older. You better get them used to grooming, especially Zeus. He looks like he's going to be a wooly, which means a lot more grooming than a normal coated Sibe. Also, I absolutely love their names! Smile



Definitely take advice from Amy. She has lots of experience with wooly coats. Lol. Laughing

Thank you!!! Smile Your guy is quite handsome as well! I chose this specific breeder for the more wooly coats... call me crazy!! Almost all of her adults have the longer coats. I am a huge fan of long coat animals. We also have a long coat 4lb Chihuahua that is 6 years old. She is solid chocolate. The huskies haven't decided if she is a dog or a squirrel...hahaa! They are doing well with her though. I have bathed them once and brushed them. They wanted to chew on the brush the whole time, lol! They really are doing pretty awesome with my training so far. They will start puppy school at the end of April.

Thank you! First time husky owners, so it has been an experience so far... even with the research. But we are loving it and them! They are so strong!!!... especially together. Zeus always has the look of 'I don't wanna' and Zena is always with the 'but why?'!!! Husky love!!

Thank you!!!... all of you Wink They are pretty awesome!... I'm very biased, of course. I figured with their parents being as fluffy as they are, all of their babies would pretty much follow suit. Love their fur!!!

David... yes, we're in Texas! At first we were only going to get one, but I just knew that one wasn't going to be enough for me... haha! Also with them being such a pack-oriented animal, I wanted buddies! Better to get the puppy phase over all at once. Lots of work, but will be amazing in the long run. Though I totally get that single husky owners just personally fill in the buddy position Wink We have a large family... four children and my husband and I, so one would have totally had human buddies, but now there's enough humans and fur babies to go around, lol!! Your boy is gorgeous... though I haven't seen an ugly Husky yet!!... I'm certain they just don't exist!

Well one thing I have noticed for people that have more than one husky/another dog with their husky.. They tire each other out. It might not seem like it for a while as they grow. At about 1 or 2 years old, they will feed their energy into one another, which will make it easier for you in comparison to someone like me who only has one dog. I am the sole person that is responsible for my dogs activity level, and if I am lazy, and she is really crazy, that is my fault. You're in the boat I want to be in. When I get my own place, I intend on getting at least two more huskies. It isn't really an excuse to have them wear each other out though. It is so I can get more serious into sledding. I enjoy it so much, but being a one dog owner, I have found that it is REALLY difficult. She doesn't have anyone she is linked to pulling the sled, so she trails off and gets distracted easily. So I thought that if she had someone to run with that she is tied to, they won't be able to trail off as easy.

Thank you, Jennet!

Lucy,
They definitely seem to already be doing that! They play constantly, if not begging for my attention, lol. I am hoping that puppy school is a huge success as just doing the daily things now with them is a challenge at times... They are so strong already and strong-willed!! Zena definitely knows when I'm serious about her behavior, Zeus is a little more stubborn. They have already gotten pretty good with the sit command, still working on stay. I only take them out back with a leash on until they get more shots, and they really show me how intense they will be once more outdoor freedom comes... Obviously still on a leash though. I only weigh 106 lbs and don't want to be dragged down the trail path, haha!! Zena is crazy vocal and talks to me all the time. If I take one out at a time, the other goes insane crazy inside the house. They hate to be separated. We barely ever get snow in Texas, so unfortunately sledding is out for us. My husband mountain bikes, so he is looking into the bikejoring when they are older. Hopefully you will get to have more huskies and sled with them Smile

very beautiful fur babies, love them sleeping together, so cute. and them run around the pool. makes me wish that i got one of Leo's sister when i got him, but he has my chihuahua Joey for company for now. Laughing

Zena’s left eye looks a lot like Leo's right eye. it started out blue/green at 8 weeks then by 10 weeks it looked green and now its more of and amber/green color. i call it hes mood ring eye Laughing , it seems to change color depending on how hot he is; if hes hot its more amber and if hes cold its more green looking.

Ronin- Thank you!!  Yep, I knew I would just end up with two at some point, so I just jumped right in with them!  I also have a long-coat Chihuahua/Priscila, that really just doesn't like the huskies at all..haha!!  She is six-years old and just can't be bothered with the huge puppies... such a diva.  



Leo's eye is definitely similar to Zena's.  It is really cool to watch the colors change.  Zena also has a little brown spot on the top of her blue eye... so neat!  Leo is quite handsome as well Smile


Danielle- Thank you!!  I have enjoyed watching them change as they grow!!  Loki is super adorable.... love that name too!!!

Jane- Thank you! Yes!!... the fur is out of control, haha!  I have never seen anything like it in my life.  They love to share it with everything/everyone too!!  I'm sure you understand with your beautiful two!

Tyler- Thanks!!  Zeus is quite the husky!  He is such a male, too, ha!  Zena is all play and Zeus is more like, "I can't be bothered to run that fast at the moment, but if you get close enough, I'll take you down."  I'll post a few more of Zeus for you Wink Koda is awesome too!

Koda is my little doll baby! I ask her all the time if she wants a little brother(I do realize she can't understand me, but I enjoy sparking conversation with her)... This website doesn't help with me wanting another one either... because I see a Zeus... and it is sparked all over again...........so thanks...

I can't wait until he fluffs out, because He will be Gorgeous!

Zena is beautiful as well! I love her mask, how it goes all the way down her snout.

Haha!! I talk to my dogs ALL of the time!! Ya, the breeder I bought them from told me that huskies are like chips... you can't have just one. They are glued to the hip, too! Zena's mom's mask goes down her snout, too, just a different color. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing how they are as adults. They go in this Wednesday to get spayed/neutered...I'm a little nervous. There's no way I could breed them... I'd keep ALL of the puppies...hahahaaa!!!

Wow they are growing up nicely. They are equally unique and beautiful. Zeus is quite different, most huskies appear to lighten and loose their mask around their eyes, and Zeus seems to be darkening. He actually reminds me a lot of Kohdi, Artic_Wind's dog, very unique mask. Being from Texas, may I ask if he is a Troika line? I know Kohdi is from a Troika line and Troika kennels is in Texas.
