Hello! Kingsley is a red & white sibe with blue eyes and is registered with AKC. He was born on November 7th, 2012.
Comparison to his half-sister from a previous litter.
"Draw me like one of your french girls."
UPDATE: 1/7 (8.5 weeks)
Drove to Albany today to pick up the pup. He did really well on the trip sans a few moments of crying. Other than that, he's adjusting to life at home (and my cat is adjusting to him). He's quiet, timid, and nervous. Apparently he was the shy one out of the litter and was always at his mama's side. We'll see how that bodes for us.
He just smells her. She lets him, then hisses, then runs away.
UPDATE: 1/9 (9 WEEKS OLD)
Note the size. He's a tiny little peanut.
He loves his crate. No whining, no crying. I can leave him upstairs by himself and he'll just go to sleep. I came home and opened it for him and he just got up, laid back down, and fell back to sleep. Yay!
UPDATE: 1/15 (10ish Weeks Old)
Here's a link to a personal blog entry with a handful of photos.
my husband bought kingsley a jacket.
Update: 1/25 (10-11 weeks old)
Every morning, after breakfast and a potty break, Kingsley comes to the living room, takes out ALL of his toys from that black box one by one, and plays with each one for about a minute before rotating to the next one.
Update: 1/30 (12 weeks old)
Kingsley had his 12 week vet appt today. We took him to a local vet here in town & they were WONDERFUL with him. He weights 14.5 pounds and had 2 shots today.
He did his "sit" command and his "pound it" (fist bump) command to impress all the ladies.
He's knocked out on the living room floor right now. He's tuckered out from his 1 mile run (10 minutes), his vet visit, and 2 shots.
Update: 2/3 (12.5 weeks old)
By the looks of it, Kingsley's more excited about the Puppy Bowl than he is the Super Bowl.
Update: 2/7 (3 months old)
Kingsley is 3 months old today! (Technicially 13 weeks and 1 day if we're going by weeks).
He's currently at my feet enjoying his Kong. He also stopped waking us up at 6:30-7am on weekends or days I have off. I still have to wake up early to take him out in the morning, and then to feed him at 8am, but he's been letting us sleep until around 9:30 or 10 sometimes (10:15 today!).
Update: 2/27 (3-4 Months)
Update: 3/4 (16-17 weeks old)
K had his 16 week vet appointment. He's in tip top shape and growing like a weed. We asked about walking/running him and Dr. Jen said that while romping around in the yard/dog park is fine, avoid structured runs until 18 months.
Kingsley's favorite toys are cardboard boxes
Kinglsey, go away you already ate.
Hi guys! Kingsley is now 5 months old at 35lbs. We've scheduled to get him neutered at the end of next month. He's doing great at home and at the dog park. He never chews on anything he's not supposed to. He doesn't like sitting/laying on the couches or the bed. Like, I've tried to pull him up to cuddle, and he'll lay down for a few minutes, then jump on the floor.
He gets sleepy around 8 and will sleep soundly until 7:30am. I take him out at that point and feed him breakfast at 8am, then he'll sleep until about 11am on weekends or days off. It's pretty sweet.
Anyway, here are some pictures from instagram and such: instagram.com/daniellegcortez
Hey guys! I'm here for my monthly update. Kingsley is now 6 months old (as of last week). We still need to take him in to get neutered, but we've had a lot going on at home that just wouldn't be fair to Kingsley to have a surgery when we cant give him our full attention. We're hoping that next month will work out for us, though.
He's now 45 lbs (WOAH!)
Still sleeps in a crate at night (does anyone let their pups sleep outside? how's that working?)
eats about 3-3.5 cups of dry kibble a day
1 fish oil pill a day
1 tbsp of extra virgin coconut oil a day
still won't cuddle on the couch or bed with me
stopped abusing the outside bell every 15 minutes to play. only rings it when he really has to go.
pulls on his leash like a psycho.
2 months/6 months
He looks so grown up.
Chillin' in the front yard.
We bring him with us everywhere.
He was feeling sick one day and wouldn't keep any of his kibble down. He continued to throw up until he had nothing left to throw up. Dave fed him boiled rice/potatoes/chicken and he immediately felt better. kept it all down.
Kingsley had his first weekend away from home while Dave and I went to NYC. He stayed with a friend of mine who has a 140 lb yellow lab, a dachshund, and a pug. Apparently he and the pug where best friends all weekend, but he was according to my friend "very hyper all weekend". Needless to say I think I might board him next month just because I felt like you really have to understand huskies in order to watch them.
Update: 7/1 Nearly 8 months
Kingsley got neutered. He was a big whiney bitch about it that we had to get an extra prescription of tremodol to calm his ass down. He kept to cone on for the full 7 days, except on the last 2 days, we took it off during the day while we were with him.
He's also not sleeping in the crate anymore. It's there for him (he goes in and out of it as he pleases) but we don't close it at night.
He also destroyed his first non-chew toy house item. My $87 macbook pro charger. Way to go, Kingsley.
We enrolled him in doggy day care. He goes once a week. The owner has huskies. Her son also competes in dog sledding. They know huskies. So he goes once a week to play and gets some light training. He comes back home exhausted for a couple days.
I crazy love taking pictures of my dog, y'all.
k, bye see you next month!
