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.

Oscar has always been a bit fluffy, as shown in this baby photo next to his sisters (he's the grey one on the right).


i thought when he grows up, his fur will become shorter and more even like other huskies, but even at 9.5 years old, his fur looks like this (and this is after a round of shedding after a bath this weekend):


it's not quite wooly, but it's also not the typical husky fur i see, especially here in california. just about every person always asks me if he's a malamute, and when i tell them he's a siberian husky, they comment on how fluffy he is and ask if he's still a puppy.

both his parents were show dogs, so i know he's definitely a full sib husky, but i was wondering if there's a way to describe his fur, so that i can tell people who ask about it. anyone?

another photo to show how oddly fluffy his outer coat looks:

Not sure how official it is but we have taken to calling it a plush coat. We have a few dogs on the forum with the same extra fluff on them.

Yep. Plush coat. I also have a boy who expresses a plush coat.

ah OK. nice to see other plushy huskies! oddly, Oscar has pretty much no undercoat on his tail, so his tail always looks thin and frizzy

I have two with plush coats.

The Malamute remark probly has more to do with Oscars brown eyes, some people just don't get that huskies can have brown eyes too, and that they're not a "mix" if they do. I had one lady tell me that Kohdi must be a mix cuz one of his eyes is blue and brown and that if he was pure husky, his eyes would just be blue.
