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 am so excited to have found this forum. I am fixing to be a first time husky owner of two precious babies! My grandmother had one when I was younger, and I loved that dog. He was challenging at times, but he was a great dog. I have always wanted one, and now that my husband is done with the military and we have bought our own house, this is a great time to make that step! Our previous dog had to be put down two years ago, which was unfortunate. He was a pit-mix that I rescued, and was one of the best and loudest dogs I have ever known.

My husband put a deposit down on a litter back in June. I was also interested in getting one for myself, as well as for the other puppy a companion. Sadly, her litter did not produce the color I was wanting. She put me in touch with a breeder that she got one of her dogs from, and she happened to have a beautiful red-headed (lol) girl. Obviously, we have no plans to breed, as they will genetically be cousins, but they will be a cute little pair of friends. Odysseus was born on October 3rd, and Circe was born on October 4th. I cannot wait to meet both of them, but especially my sweet little Circe, who I will be meeting on Saturday!!

Thank you! His brother was beautiful, and I voted on him, but my husband really liked his color. I am dying to see Circe on Saturday and see if I can get some better pictures of her color. They are the sweetest little things. I have to get to work on fixing their outside area, which is going to be a chore and a half.

I will! I suppose it is a good thing that I never sleep. I have three children. One of them is a holy terror, the other one is in Taekwondo pretty much every day (I swear I spend my life there), and the other one is just 9 months. I am starting a bunch of outside projects, one of which is to turn this little barn into an outside area for the dogs. The people that lived in this house before have a decent sized little barn they had one horse in. I am going to replace the floor, reinforce the walls, and build a raised digging bed for them. I'm supposed to have a fence guy coming soon too.

Oh my goodness so much cuteness, how exciting two pups! I love their names, and that they're a day apart in age. We're birthday twins ours is 10/4 too! The pups are going to love that they have 3 kids to play with! Can't wait to see more from you.

Yeah, they will keep them busy! We also live about 10 min from a wilderness area with a ton of trails and water. I love hiking, and they will give me a good reason to get out and be more active. They are going to be a handful, but it will totally be worth it.

I have gotten the worst news today. Circe and another puppy were killed by a neighbor's dog last night. Either her son or her husband forgot to close her pen and the dog was able to get in. The mother tried to fight it off, and was taken to the emergency vet with the other five puppies. She is heartbroken, and so am I. =[ I didn't even get to meet her.

Stefanie, I am so sad to hear the news. Try and focus on Odysseus, he will bring great joy and laughter to your home. Things happen for a reason, even if we don't understand the reason. Take care

Things are just going from bad to worse. Odysseus did not get a good report at the vet. She has given us the option to pick another puppy that got a clean vet check. Since this is my husband's dog, I am letting him make that decision. I did get some of the food, and I have it a heavy duty crate, so it will be ready to come home, whichever one he decides to bring. Thanks for the encouragement. <3

We did, however, wind up with ANOTHER cat. My aunt caught one inside the factory where she works, and I went and got it with the intentions of taking it to the animal shelter. I felt sorry for it, so now it is living in my laundry room, because my other cats hate it. She only comes out at night. She is really sweet though.
