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.

Hello, I’m about to be a new husky owner of a beautiful two and a half month old pup. I’d love any advice anyone has to offer (I’ve researched a fair bit on the training challenges with these independent doggos). I know grooming will be another strong need for her as she is simply a ball of fluff. I was also wondering if anyone could identify her specific coloring - I myself am stumped because she seems to be every color in the husky rainbow. Those eyes though 😍 A true ice queen. Also if anyone has name suggestions please share! I’m thinking she looks like a Nova, but I worry she might confuse “No!” with her name and grow up to have self esteem issues! All jokes aside I’m very excited and happy to be apart of the community.

Like Ronin says, she looks like a grey and white. Both mine looked just like her at that age. You will see her darken up around 3.5 months or so and by 4.5 months she will be showing grey much more.

My theme is characters. Shadow was named for shadow moon from American gods (neil gaimen) spider from the book anansi boys (neil gaiman) squirt was named after squirtle the pokemon and splinter was named after master splinter from ninja turtles. Your idea of nova would even fit the theme.

Spider was marked similarly as a puppy. I consider her color wolf grey with copper highlights. Shes much darker without her undercoat

Thanks for the insight, everyone! Yeah I wasn’t sure why she looked so different from her siblings, even the sire and dam were black and white/grey and white. I think I have settled on Nova for a name though! I’m a bit nervous though because the people I’m getting her from haven’t administered her or her siblings’ first round of shots. When I get her in about a week I was hoping to take her straight to a vet or clinic to get them but I’m not sure how that works - will she simply be on a different t schedule? She’s almost 3 months old and hasn’t had any shots at all.

Yes the schedule is going to be different but otherwise should be fine. One big NoNo is dog parks. Do not take a puppy to a dog park until vaccines are done.

Expanding on the comment from @lostmaniac - it's better if you can keep him anyplace where other dogs have been. For example, Parvo is almost always fatal (unless caught quickly) and other dogs can carry the parvo virus without symptoms. It really is better to skip all socialization - except with known dogs - until after the vaccinations are complete.
