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.

Same here! Ginger is 52-53 lbs and Storm is 85 lbs and losing. Storm plays with 'the guys' and will play with Ginger, but he often submits pretty easily and pretty quick - Ginger can be a brute sometimes....Storm is getting spunkier though, with his weight loss and with the weather cooling off....and he's getting STRONGER! Shocked Oye!

Doh! Good luck! Chili is awesome on leash and I don't have to worry about his strength. I can call him off cats pretty easily. UNELESS we see horses or goats. Luckily, that rarely happens in the city. Smile We ran into a temporary petting zoo at the local park and I had to hand him over to hubby, who had to hold him back with all this strength!

Sounds like Storm is gonna be FUN! That's so funny, our two are opposites. She's spunky and he's the brute!

He's great on a leash, but if he spots a bunny, squirrel, or magpie first, it's tough. If it's both Ginger and Storm and I'm on grass in sneakers and they see it first, I'm toast.

On the trail, he needs to be with Ginger and Ginger needs to be up front, so JD usually has both of them. I'm the one with the camera! Laughing

I had a little battle with them over a squirrel a few days ago and they ALMOST took me down and all I kept thinking was "thank god that I work out legs and arms!". I'm tiny...super small frame so I know for sure that if I didn't work out I would wipe out easily silent

Clauida, Stomr is doing great!! Congrats!!! Very Happy

Hubby said Storm had kicked into high gear today when he let them out this morning in the snow. Ginger did her zoomies and Storm was chasing her!

Now that we've come out of summer hibernation, and have done a few hikes this month, I'm anxious to see what he weighs!

I get home tomorrow so I'll stop by Dr. M's to get his weight either on Friday or Monday...

We're SO close to his goal weight of 80 lbs!!!

I bet the increase in energy plus winter weather are going to help make it come off even easier!

No hike this weekend but I might take G&S to Surrey Ridge,

I don't ever remember Storm doing this until tonight, but tonight, Storm came up on the couch to cuddle and he curled up in the 'husky C-curl'! He's slim enough to curl up! sunny

Haha that's funny about the C! I remember the first time sierra was able to do that after we got her weight down, I was like look honey she is curled up! We will see where her weight is tomorrow....

October 28 - 82.2 lbs

sunny

I think we may need to go another few more under 80 lbs...so Storm may be at an ideal weight at about 75-78 lbs

But we're within 5 lbs, and with snowshoeing coming up, we'll get there in no time!

Thanks for the BIG compliment! It really means a lot especially when Ginger and Storm are my first huskies ever, and for that matter dogs!

Simply amazes me when I follow your updates on Storm that he was so huge and then managed to lose all that weight in such a short time. He's lucky he didn't have a heart attack with all of his previous weight.

I can't believe that he was 140 lbs! How does ANYONE let ANY pet get that obese?! How did his previous owners let him get that big?! He is such a good, sweet boy...I just don't understand how anyone could just forget about him and neglect him to that extreme extent!

Yay Storm! Good job!!! Smile We need some Jenny Craig style "after" pictures! Wink

Now he's the size Chili used to be! Wink I know you were wondering if his frame could get down and he did!!! You've taken such good care of him! His previous owner just seem lazy and mean!

Chili just lost a bunch of weight and we were worried, but his tests just came back negative. The only thing I did different was to have them pull me on the waist leash on our walks twice a day - I wonder if that did it...?

Here's a better comparison:

Storm, 115+ lbs, in foster care in KS sometime between August 2010 and April 2011:


April 22...that was then...112.2 lbs



Today, at 80.8 lbs.

What a handsome boy! Good job on the weight loss, you're a good looking boy now! And from the looks of the picture where the two of them are "kissing" (touching noses), Ginger thinks so too Cool
