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 all!
My name is Teresa and we just got our very first Husky. Her name is Mieka and she is 13 weeks old.
So far things are going well. She's really taken to crate training very well. In fact, she loves it. She goes in it even when she doesn't have to.
Housebreaking is coming along.

My only problem so far is that I have a 4 year old daughter that is scared to death of her. We're working on getting her over it but we've only had Mieka since Saturday. However, my 2.5 year old daughter and Mieka are best friends already.

I've been reading through the board for a couple of days now. I have read some great info and I look forward to reading more. I'm learning so much! This is our first dog as a family and we picked a Husky because it is my husband's dream dog. We love her already.

Welcome! I love Mieka's mask Smile

Good luck with your daughter and all of the joys (and craziness) of puppyhood.

"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"
