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.

She sounds so much like Mishka, as much as Grant sounds like Kohdi!!! Mishka is one super tough cookie, LOL. And I remember some of those "accidental" experiences as well. Good thing puppies are so flexible, lol.

I'm watching Sophia for bites and resource guarding, not Grant. Had them both at the office and she defended her bed a bit, but she was tethered. I offered to tether Grant, too, but he decided to go lay by the door instead. Haha

Cute pics Smile

Mishka was a bit possessive as well, and in turn, I think turned Kohdi into a resource guarder. I had to coax that trait back out of Kohdi. You will see, as they grow together, they work that part out themselves. Sometimes it's cute, sometimes you will think they're gonna give you s heart attack, lol, but they do work it out.

I corrected the photos to the cropped versions. It's so weird how they post sideways from my phone. I'm usually so lazy about editing them, kind of like I'm lazy about not using my DSLR. Oh, well...

Yeah, I was re-watching a Patricia McConnell conference (I'm a behaviorist nerd) and she mentioned not spaying the only female of a litter until after two cycles because they can be more competitive (at least that's what I took from it, with the echo-y audio).

Sophia is a very assertive little girl, while Grant just sort of knows he's king of the four-leggers. Should be interesting! But I'm the mom, so everyone has to do what I say. Haha

I'm editing this to add a reference:

Effects of Testosterone on Dog Behavior

@Artic_Wind She's peaceful when sleeping, for sure. Overall a very happy girl, passionately alive.

@CloverField I guess we have to take her to Disney on Ice!

@Misty Mia Husky She and Grant act like young Alpha male and female in the family, waiting for their parents to die so they can rule, haha. Seriously, Grant is a great leader and can wear her out playing with her (supervised, always). She's a dynamo!

PS. I'm frustrated with how many times my posts have been eaten by the platform lately.

They are a great looking pair. Love the flowers pic, so pretty. Mishka has always had an obsession with flowers...in the time it'd take to push the button on the camera, I think Mishka woulda pulled out a few stems already, lol.

Thanks. Jimmy. Once again, my response didn't show up, sorry. The flowers in the garden she plucks off the stems, so I have to be very careful when walking her!

And yes, Mark, they took a break from playing to sit for Cornish hen (and the photos).

Such cute pictures. Sometimes I wish my two would enjoy going IN the pool more, but then I think of what all goes along with a fluffy wet husky and am kinda glad they don't, lol. As with most things having to do with the yard though, if they are having fun, I'd rather let them do it and deal with any negatives than have less fun by not being able to do it. Their lives (and ours!) are so short as it is.

Grant isn't a swimmer, and the wading serves to wash his feet, which is his tradition after coming up from the yard. I'm relieved he's not a swimmer, and hope little sister keeps to wading, as well.

Thanks, Jimmy. Sophia is easy to train. She already has the schedule down, and is getting more bonded with Grant every day. He's laid back and she is a pistol, so they're doing fine.
