Sorry for some pictures. Some are taken on the digi cam and some on the phone!
The morning after we brought her home! Bella is 10 weeks old here. She was born 2/17/2011


Taken a few days after she's been home


Same day being a terror


Somewhere close to twelve weeks. This was her "puppy" she loved her puppy. It was her first toy. She'd carry it around with her -everywhere. Puppy had to go away when she turned six months because all of the stuffing was no longer inside, but strewn across my living room. Sad


Somewhere between three and four months


Four months or so (maybe four and a half?)


This is my Siberian "Grazing" Husky. Very Happy five and a half months


Six and a half months. She was rather unhappy with me, I guess. She was howling!


This is her "neener!" face.


Bella has SAS (Subaortic stenosis) very, very mild. Cardiologist isn't concerned that it is something very serious and she is on beta-blockers. We got her for free as the people who had her were going to have her put to sleep because of her at the time diagnosed heart murmur. She is the love of my life! Smile

And this...is my previous girl, Daytona (not a husky, I know!). She's a Great Pyrenees. 2/25/1999 - 7/21/2010

Thank you Smile it was a hard loss for me as Daytona was my first dog. Took awhile before I ever thought I could get another dog (eight month struggle with depression) - and then I found Bella! And I had that feeling of "That is the perfect dog for me!" butterflies and happiness everywhere feeling!

We didn't know them (the breeder). I found her online and luckily got to her in time. It was a BYB, unfortunately. Which is why she was going to be put to sleep. He wasn't able to sell an unhealthy puppy. But she's safe and happy now and that's all that matters Smile

Thank you very much for the kind words Smile

She is very happy. Happy enough to destroy my house on a daily basis and be super proud of it! It's like she knows she did something wrong but she just wants to show me!

The one day last week. After we had gone out in the morning. She got into a bunch of used toilet paper (like blown nose used) and decided that she was -so- proud to come get me and show me. Jumping around and barking and running around me in circles as I walked into the living room she laid down on the couch and wagged her tail as I looked on in horror. Smile

sounds like you need a trash can with a lid or closed doors!
just be careful with what she gets into we have had way to many stories here of emergency visits with huskies eating things.

and yes they love to "show off" there destruction!

Yep! Every door is closed or gated off now with the exception of my room. But occasionally someone forgets and she jumps at the opportunity!

The only garbage she's gotten into has been the main floor little half bathroom that only ever has toilet paper in it. She never bothers with the kitchen garbage (has a lid). I think that's because once when she was younger she overturned the kitchen one on herself because she stood up on it and knocked it over.

Sounds like my Kale except not as severe =( BYB's are terrible. Just glad that there are people like you out there =) I saved my Kale from a BYB.

Bella looks like quite the character. Such a cutie she is! Is she a big talker?

Awwww... I love her snuggling with her puppy! That puppy would have been "dead" sooner than 6 months at my house. Maybe all boys, both human and canine, have less of a nurturing instinct...

She's a cutie!

So. As it is really hot/humid outside today. I'm waiting until the evening to take Bella out for her walk. SO! We took some pictures.

She dropped her rope bringing it to me because she wanted to play. I took the picture as she was putting the brakes on to pick it up again.


My mother's Maltese's suddenly started barking at her. She wasn't too sure why. So she stopped with the rope and looked at them. (The red stuff on the flood was from a snake we bought at petco that had 6 squeakers in it and a rattle on its tail. It's now missing it's head and 3 squeakers)


Her bringing back the rope! Very Happy (Apparently my redeye reduction on the camera didn't want to work for this picture. Sorry for the satan dog Sad )

Bella decided today would be her day to be constipated. With Tropical Storm Lee deciding to downpour like five inches of rain onto us and making my backyard a flood plain...She decided she was far too good to go poop in the rain. After 20 minutes and becoming entirely soaked with her outside I tied her out thinking MAYBE she'd like to go on her own.

Five minutes later...she decided that today was a good day to lounge on the furniture...


She looks so happy Smile

No, no she didn't.

It took my dad standing out there a couple hours later for 10 minutes and then me standing out there for another 5 for her to finally poop X_X.

It was such a miserable day out too from that stupid storm. Rainy and Cold. She pranced around in my backyard in an inch of water like it was play time. While I stood there - my socks soaking wet because the water came into my shoes (that do not have a hole)

While I thought she was asleep downstairs...she was apparently doing something she shouldn't have.

As she ran to the top of the stairs with something dangling out of her mouth I called her to me...

I don't even know -where- she got this from..but it used to be a dog.


This used to be the dogs face...


and this is what was left of it in my living room

She's not allowed to have plush toys anymore because of that! xD She had this plush tiger that we got at petco that she tore all of the fur off of and then chewed the entire face off of, took out the squeaker and some stuffing. My father used..I guess for a lack of better words industrial duck tape (the kind you see on tractor trailers covering holes in the shrink wrap on the loads) and taped it up so she could enjoy it some more. Yeah. The tape did nothing. She chewed that off and pulled it apart. She went through the head of a snake we got her. Pulled out three of the six squeakers in that and now this dog.

Which I am -still- baffled as to where she got it. Since it's not mine. Neutral

HAHAHA these dogs definitely keep us on our toes! Laughing Kale rarely destroys plushies. He despises rubber toys lol He only likes his Kong if there's food inside lol actually 85% of his toys are plushies haha He enjoys shaking them and throwing them in the air instead of ripping out the stuffing. lol BUT if there's a rip and the stuffing starts coming out THEN he goes to town lol Sucks for whoever's dog that is Shocked hopefully they won't realize it's missing... silent

Yeah...I don't know. xD I'm hoping no one will even notice it went "missing". I think it was my niece of nephews >.> But they're older 11 and 6 so I'm sure they won't miss it Very Happy

See. I wish Bella was like Kale! Her absolutely most favorite toy is her rope toy. And she likes to tear the strings off of it and leave them around the house (My father is less than pleased by this). Followed by hard rubber bones, her spiny ball of doom she likes to play catch/fetch with.

I've heard that Huskies are not known for wanting to fetch. But she absolutely loves it. We play fetch in the house for hours. And when she wants me to play with her she brings me her toys and drops them in my lap and lays half on me until I throw them!

Kale love to play fetch too! lol but his consistency with bring the ball back is lacking haha He goes and gets it, runs back, circles me 2-3 times, then drops it 5 feet away and looks at me like "Well?! aren't you going to throw it?!" ugh! lol He does it with the Jolly Ball too, it has that giant handle on it, he prances around with it after I kick it and does the same thing with his tennis ball.

Well isn't he quite the character Razz!

For some reason Bella reliably brings it back near about 90% of the time. It's just something she really enjoys doing because I never trained it. Every time I even think of trying to train it and reinforce with food she loses her mind and only thinks about the food. xD
