I successfully converted my family to huskies. I frequently brows the breeder I bought Kavik from because I like to see the newest litters. A couple weeks ago I showed my dad the latest puppies. He instantly fell in love with this guy and he became his birthday present. The two dogs aren't from the same parents but their personalities are pretty similar.

His name is Chugach, after the same mountain range. He's 11 weeks old, bi-eyed/parti-eyed, and sable colored. His right eye is all brown and his left is mostly blue with some brown.


Kavik likes playing with him.


And at least one dog knows what the bed is for.

They both are GORGEOUS! What's the name of the breeder you use? I'm always browsing for husky #2 and I love the Agouti look!

Wow, that mask indeed. Very interested to see how that develops with age. Kavik is looking great, as always. Some interesting ones come out of your breeder. Very unique.

Both dogs came from here:
http://www.chastainshuskies.zoomshare.com/

They always have super gorgeous puppies. They often breed dark/agouti ones, my favorite coloring. They also have other coat colors. The breeders are nice to do business with and the two dogs I've gotten from them have been very healthy with great personalities. If I ever get a second dog for myself I will buy from them again.


I wonder if Chugach will go through the same weird coat metamorphosis Kavik did.

Thanks guys!

I've been so busy that I haven't been on this site in a while. I'll probably say that every time I post here Laughing

Here are some pictures that were taken in 2014.

Pictures from his birthday at 2 years old. Everything is pumpkin because he's an October puppy.



He saw deer 2014 winter at my parent's house.


A couple grainy photos of him being spoiled. He put his chin on my hand then rolled over so I could scratch him.

Kavik and the puppy had a scuffle yesterday. I was in another room and thought my mom was watching the dogs when the puppy started screaming. I jumped up and found the puppy curled into a corner with Kavik trying to sniff him and acting confused by the crying. He doesn't like it when the puppy cries and always comes running when he starts up. I don't know if Kavik made a scolding bite or was too rough while playing, but i'm pretty sure his tooth slashed the puppy and that it was an accident.

I pressed a paper towel to the puppy's wound  and my mom drove us to the emergency vet. Blood was dripping out one nostril and his wound bled for a good 15 minutes. Luckely the vet said it was only a flesh wound (pun intended Razz) and the force of the hit gave him a little nose bleed. The puppy got two stitches and is on antibiotics and pain killers. He's mostly back to normal today though you can tell when the pain killers are wearing off. It's killing both dogs that they can't play right now.  Kavik keeps bringing toys to the puppy's kennel and has left a ring of them around it.

I don't blame Kavik, I don't think he hurt the puppy on purpose, but I'm kind of mad they weren't being supervised. Kavik is too big and gets playing too rough for the two of them to be left alone together.  


Chugach will be fine and he'll probably have his stitches out in ten days. Poor puppy.

Edit: I suggested my dad change his name to Stitch Laughing

Stitch would be a perfect name for him!

It's almost been a year since I updated...wow. It's hard to believe Kavik is 3 years and 8 months old. He has calmed down a lot and is such a good boy.

Story time:

I was with him in colorado for a year. My parents live up in the mountains at about 8,700 ft. Everyone had 10 acres though most of it was steep hills. I had a scare when my mom opened the door and Kavik escaped into the woods. She came into my room and said he had bolted past her. I was lucky I had tennis shoes on but I grabbed nothing, not even a jacket or my cell phone. It was starting to get dark and the fall temperatures were dipping. I saw caught a glimpse of his tail down a slope and started the chase.

When you're up at almost 9,000, your body has to work hard to pull in the thinned out oxygen. I wasn't acclimated to the altitude yet and I was starting to have an asthma attack and my lungs were filling with fluid as I gulped down air. I knew if I didn't catch him it was likely I would never see him again so I refused to stop.

My mom followed me up a steep hill with her car a minute later since there was a dirt road, but she couldn't follow for long. She didn't get out of her car and just stared as I disappeared, running after him.

I was lucky that the neighbor who backed up to my parents property us was outside and that he had two great pyrenees in his yard. Kavik stopped to greet them and the neighbor grabbed him. I can't thank that neighbor enough. There aren't enough cookies I can bake or hugs I can give to that person for grabbing kavik and waiting until I came over to get him.

I didn't have a leash so I had to drag Kavik all the way back by his collar. Chasing after him and dragging him back over the course of a mile sounds simple but the altitude and rocky, steep terrain made it a marathon. I was a bit disoriented about where I was on the way back since I wasn't familiar with the area, but I managed to find the road that led back to the house. When I got back I put him in my room and flopped onto the floor. Kavik thought we had just had a great time and was panting happily  No


Livid doesn't begin to explain how I felt toward my mom. First she let him out, and I guarantee it was due to alcohol, then she panicked in her befuddled, slightly intoxicated state instead of helping.  Mad Needless to say, I kept him in my room with the door shut every evening after that.



Summer 2015.



He loved the snow. This winter there was a storm that created 5 feet of snow.

Winter 2015.




I moved back to Texas last week and I'm back in my own place. Kavik is a single puppy again.

Moving day.


The Uhaul broke down the first day after a couple hours so we were stuck in a hotel for a day. Kavik didn't seem to mind.


Kavik and Chugach had to share a kennel until we found the second one. They were watching the moving guys bring in the furniture. I could tell breaking these two up was going to be hard.


Kavik not feeling too sure about all of this.


The first few days he refused to leave his kennel but once furniture stopped moving around, the boxes decreased, and he got a squeaky toy and treats, he calmed down.

Wow on your story, so glad you had a happy ending to that. Love the pics, he is so very handsome, and so mature looking. I see that happy husky bond he had with your dads husky. The pic with the 2 of them and Kavik's head sticky out of the snow is the best! Thanks for updating, he is such a unique looking guy, enjoy seeing him.

I love these pics, he has the most beautiful head and coloring to his coat, just beautiful! The story was scary, mine getting loose is one of my biggest fears, and to get loose in the mountains! Ugh, I'd freak! Glad everything turned out ok. You gotta update more often, he's just so beautiful.

The experience was scary and I'm glad it had a happy ending too. I don't know what would have happened if I hadn't of caught him. Those woods are hardcore with mountain lions and bears looking to stock up for winter. I was lucky there were no deer, elk, or a hulking moose around for him to go chasing after. Then there was also a highway he could have wandered down to....A dog loose in those woods is not good.


I noticed it sounds like I give my mom a hard time...I do but only because I care. cyclops

The amount of snow was insane. The dogs loved it.

Both dogs were wiggling, pouncing, and flopping their way through the snow. It was funny to watch.

Thank you. I absolutely love his coat coloring and mask, too. Agouti is definitely my favorite coat type. I'll try to post more often!
