PostSubject: Today I feel like a REAL husky owner!   Fri Apr 22, 2011 2:57 pm

Sabaka has been with us for nearly 3 months and today marks the beginning of another life change.

Today I AM a husky owner!!

One might ask if I did not feel like a true husky owner when being pulled down the street on what my Mother-in-Law calls a "dog drag"....

What about when strangers stop to admire my husky, the rock star....

Maybe it should have been his charming blue eyes that made me realize that I am a new husky owner....

Perhaps I should have caught on when my puppy was the most hyper dog in puppy class - always loving life and every human, dog or other live creature in sight....

But HERE is the REAL thing that sets husky owners apart from most all other dog owners... and it began for me in earnest today.... (pic to follow)

Buahahaha!!

We "harvested" this from under the fridge AFTER having cleaned/vacuumed/shampooed carpets, then doing a full sweep and mop. PLUS, we get two canisters out of our vacuum that look just like this every week... Gotta love 'em. Very Happy

Why yes, we have pets. Why do you ask?! by CoffeeK8, on Flickr

I love it!! You guys really make me feel good! Now I'm anxious to show you under my fridge next year, the legs of my black yoga pants, my kitchen floor full of hair and maybe even that sweater I should be knitting!!

You really know that this is my least favorite part of sharing my home with a husky, right? I'm trying to be positive here...

How funny I have the exact same vacuum (which died after having it for 2 monts) and the same brush (I think it's a furminator?) oh and yeah....the exact same amount of hair from Mya. She's blowing her coat nasty!

Mine are just now starting. I with you Claudia...I brush them outside so I don't have to deal with it in the house. I probably shouldn't, I don't know that my neighbors love finding husky fur in their yard. Last year I saw a bird pick up some of Dakota's fur, I assume for a nest, while I was outside brushing him. Very Happy

Thats the excuse I gave my boyfriend when he complained that the hair would fly everywhere outside! I told him it would make great soft nesting material for the birds! We saw a few nests around our neighborhood with what looked to be husky hair in them. I guess its the least the dogs can do for the birds, since they spend most of their time trying to catch and eat them! Razz

Mine are just starting to blow coat...

I use to try and pick up most of the hair until last year when I started noticing birds waiting for me and the dogs to leave then they would swoop in and harvest all the nest material. They would keep returning until every bit of the dog's hair was gone.

If I were a little birdie, I would wish to have a nest made of husky fur!!!

I'm afraid many of you with multiple adult coat-blowing huskies will need a few families of bald eagles to rid your yards of all the fur!!

We had swept the hardwood foyer twice today before 6:00pm when a friend stopped by and commented, "Wow, he really sheds, doesn't he?" Grrrr....

I got hairs everywhere!!

I also have a husky who hates to be brushed. I think he's just the kid who's too hyper to sit still that long. But HE'S A HUSKY...he'd better get used to being brushed!!
