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.

Hi,

Thank you for allowing me to be part of your Forum.  

A little about me , I will be 65 years old in December, got my first Siberian when I was 10 years.  Raced, showed, and trialed them until 1985, when the "dark side" took over, and we went to Alaskans and eventually Eurohounds for Racing.  In 2013 , some health issues forced my husband and myself to no longer maintain the racing kennels, So the dogs were split between 3 key friends that are still using these bloodlines we started today.  We were left with the house dogs, a Doberman and a "rescue" rat terrier now 15 years old.  The Dobie passed 3 years ago, and one dog now 12 years old wasn't enough.  I thought that Me Biscuits was such a nice dog and well behaved that we should look and buy a Rat Terrier.  I did my research, found a breeder of 20 years, with a great line of dogs.  I love Gypsy to death, but I am not a "Terror" person.  I think Mr. Biscuits is part Chihuahua as to how calm he is!  Well, in the scheme of things, I happened upon a woman that was breeding Chukotka sled dogs, her foundation stock right from the villages of Lorino, and Inchoun Chukotka.  It was always on my bucket list to get a dog from Siberia, so we imported Val've last year.  You will hear more about him as well as photos  later if you are interested,  I am currently working with the same Russian breeder to get a female from her.  She plans on another expedition to the Chukotka region this spring with hope of 10 or more new dogs.  

My other passion is my dog gear business Windigo Outfitters that I have owned and started for the past 45 years.  I hope that I can help answer any questions on equipment and usage for you.

Well again, I hope to be a productive member of the group as time allows.  

Deb (Windigo)

Welcome to the forum. Definitely believe you could have some valuable input. We have had some folks in the past who worked their dogs and it was always an interesting perspective as opposed to the majority of us who have them as pets and just try to keep them sane.

Would love some pictures!
