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.

So I've been curious about this for awhile. It may be stupid to ask, so pardon my innocence on this subject.

I've been noticing that some huskies tend to have more fur than others and that usually the white ones don't look like they have as much as the others. About 2 months ago I asked Ghost's vet why he didn't have so much and she told me that it was because he was still young. I've seen pictures of huskies that have alot of fur, really alot. So my question is, does he'll get more while growing old or it depends on the dog? He's going to make 11 months in 2 days.

It depends on the line they come from more than the age. There is a difference between puppy coat and adult coat but that's generally texture vs amount. Both of my puppy girls are very plush coated as you can probably see in their pictures, where my last girl has a shorter racing style coat and doesn't ever get 'poofy'.
