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 everyone, my husky Bodhi is about a year and 2 months now. He recently lost all his puppy fur over their summer. He used to be much fluffier, but his fur has thinned out significantly. He has a very silky texture, which I’ve noticed is unique for the breed since I haven’t seen too many other silky huskies. Anyone have an explanation as to why his fur is so silky?

Looks to show a little of the wooly gene. Not a full on fluff monster like many wooly coats can be, but expressing at least a little bit of it that causes the feathers. This is caused by a gene mutation in coat expression and is a fault in the breed (meaning out of standard and unacceptable in the show ring). Mixes will often see this happen as well.

The second picture was added after I saw this earlier (or maybe I just missed the picture)

I'd be inclined to think mix - at 14 months the ears are still to prominent, I'd have thought they'd have "come to size" by then; also the tail is laying on his back (snap tail?)

There is just something about him that says "Husky, but not quite ..." given that, he's a good looking boy.

The tail and feathers remind me of squirt. The tail position is alittle different, her tail feathers are almost a foot long. Its something ive wondered about since when i looked at akc excessive plumage is listed as different from wooly but also not acceptable for show. Lately ive come across several other types of Huskies aside from the sibe and the Alaskan.

Spider gets a really silky coat after she blows her coat until her new one grows in. Tho as shes gotten older its become less silky
