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.

PostSubject: Another "Hello, this is my Husky" Post   Thu Oct 27, 2011 2:10 pm

Hi all,

I'm from Canada. I am the proud mom of two dogs, a bird, a rabbit and two Kinkajous [members of the procyonidae family]. All of my "children" were adopted; which brings me to my latest addition, a gorgeous 1 year old female Siberian. She will be my first husky, but definitely not my last. I have been warned multiple times, "huskies are like potato chips, you cannot just have one".

I am an agility-addict and have also recently began skijoring. As you can imagine, I'm extremely looking forward getting started with my new girl.

When I'm not caring for my own animals, I'm caring for others. I run a dog boarding facility and a private, not-for-profit animal rescue abroad. Due to space limitations, we usually only have about 10 dogs and 10 other small critters at the rescue. But even so, we continue to feed 100+ strays everyday.

I tend to ramble a lot... If you haven't already noticed.

Anyways, I have lots of questions and cannot wait to ask the experts (YOU).

Until the next boring topic I post, take care!

"Being the parent of a special-needs pet means living your life constantly poised on the edge of a double-edged sword. On the one hand, you become a fierce defender of the ways in which your little one is perfectly ordinary — all the things he or she can do that are just like what everybody else does. And yet, you never lose sight of how absolutely extraordinary that very ordinariness is, how difficult, remarkable and rewarding that fight to be 'just like everybody else' has been."  -Gwen Cooper, "Homer's Odyssey"

Thank you all.

I will take and upload some pictures once she gets a good scrubbing. The silly little girl slipped into massive mud-puddle when doing a zoomy, at the park.

Welcome and you need to get that girl named. If I have the extra land I would be rescueing as well. I hate to hear that the shelters around here are at or almost at copassidy, which usually means putting animals to sleep, So sad.
You are wonderful for what you do!!!

I know, I know, I know. It takes me several weeks to figure out the perfect name for my animals. And in the end I always end up getting asked "... Shocked and what made you name him/her that?". My current five are all named after exotic fruits and spices. I was thinking of Binti: "Young Lady" in Swahili or Aviva: "Spring/Spring Time" in Hebrew, I think?

Yes, it is very sad. But what I find most disturbing is the gas chamber method that many shelters, pounds, animal control facilities, etc. use to "put the animals to sleep".
