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.

Hi everyone, I haven’t been active in a while but finally have had some time the last couple of days to check in so I figured I’d reintroduce myself and our new pack memeber! I’m Jennet, I live in Eau Claire, WI with my husband and our 4 Huskies, 1 Yorkshire Terrier and 3 Cats.

Our pack started with Embry, who now will be 9 in October, Zoey just turned 8, Ares is 6.5 and baby Murdock is 7 months. We recently added Murdock to our pack about a couple months ago now from a rescue in Minnesota. He is originally from Kentucky but was surrendered to a shelter there because his breeder couldn’t sell him do to a birth defect. Murdock is 100% blind and was born without eyes. He’s still a crazy Husky puppy so don’t feel sorry for him, he doesn’t even know he’s blind!

My mother in law also passed away a month or so ago and so we inherited her two dogs. We have Abby who is a 6.5 year old Yorkie and we also added Benny a 13 year old Scottish Terrier, who we had to put to sleep last week due to Kidney Failure.

In the last few years we picked up urban mushing and sledding. We just do it for fun though, no competing for us ???? Hopefully Murdock will be able to participate in wheel in the fall, but we’ll see!

I love baby Murdock and your pack!

Sorry to hear about the losses though. It's never easy.

Murdock looks so cool and laid back in that first picture.  Something looked odd about his eyes there and then when you said he's stone blind it was like "Oh!"  It's funny, but dogs and other people don't seem to miss what they've never had - they cope, wonderfully!

I have to echo @simplify, losing friends is never easy.  Sorry that we can't all live forever.

I remember you, your pack! Welcome back!

Murdoch is awesome. Although I think he is better off with a family, especially one with other Huskies, and who will take care of him with his special needs, I have to say I'm really disappointed a breeder of all people, would surrender him instead of taking care of him. Says a lot, to me anyways, about that breeder. In any event, he is awesome and fits right in with your other pups, beautiful pics! LOVE Ares eyes, he looks like he's a real character, haha.

Sorry about your losses as well. It's tough.

@simplify thanks he’s quite the character. We just love him so much! Thank you, it’s been a rough couple of months.

@aljones yeah he does so well. Occasionally bumps into things but he has the house and yard mapped out and does great. We even take him hiking and he’s fearless and jumping on and off things. Thank you

@Artic_Wind thanks! Yeah he’s fit right in since day 1. I would love to find out who he is breeder is but I’ve searched and can’t find anyone who will own up to it. He was even returned to the rescue once, I can’t imagine why since he’s perfect. Ares is such a sweet boy, I hope to get him certified as a therapy dog one day. Thank you, it’s been rough but we are taking it day by day

Welcome back. Smile (although I'm relatively new here so I should just say "Hi") wave

Sorry to hear of the rough patch. Love the pictures of Murdock with his stats. Crazy he was born without eyes. Amazing how dogs overcome setbacks.

Glad to see you stopped in! I do not post much these days but i lurk and read and comment when i have something to say.

Been following on FB and i think Murdock was meant to be with your pack, you have quite the age range now!

having a 10yr and a 1.5yr its a HUGE difference between them! But Jack has been handling Finn fine. I think Murdock will be little like Finn, they seem to be tracking the same weight, i do need to get Finn weighed again, been a few months.

@dvflyer thanks! Yeah we originally were told he had Microphthalmia which means he has eyes but they’re underdeveloped but after having my Vet look more in depth we didn’t find any eyes at all. He’s a special guy ♥️

@jbealer he really is and the age range is crazy but they all get along and play. I love Finn (and Jack of course Wink ) yeah he’s definitey gonna be small like Finn, I don’t think he’ll ever even hit over 45lbs.
