Hello everyone!

My name is Chelsi, and I'm about to be a new mommy to an 8 week old husky named Koda. (Haha, not to be confused with the moderator named 'Koda' on IAHT!) Here are a few pictures of him (he's only 6.5 weeks right now, so we'll get him soon): http://www.mikaylakennels.com/Maddie%20Pups%20Slide/abe_wow.html

I couldn't believe how many times Google would direct me to this forum when I typed in questions! Lots of my husky info I've already received here, so I finally just decided to sign up! Smile

I am also looking for anyone in the central florida location! I'm in Winter Park (near Orlando) and I'd love for Koda to have some husky friends!

I'll be stalking the forums for a few more answers but I'll probably also end up posting asking a few specific questions as well!

Nice to meet everyone!

Aww, thank you both so much!! It's nice to meet you both! Smile

Thank you! I haven't gotten to meet him yet as the breeder is a ways away from us, but he is certainly a cutey! We get him on the 29th, and we can't wait! Smile

I've never had to wait on a pup but i was dying waiting to get Kay. I kept thinking the shelter would adopt her out to someone else.

Your babies are so cute Abby, and Kay is so adorable! I'm glad you got her! Smile

At first I was SO impatient but waiting has been pretty awesome for me, actually, because it's given me more time to prepare. I've helped raise a lab and a boxer / pit mix, but admitantly my Fiance and I were more always cat people. We never expected to adopt a dog, EVER. The only dog breed that he and I both love, you guessed it, is huskies.

We were in the market searching for a cat but suddenly our path took an unexpected turn and we ended up deciding a husky would better suit us! Smile

Thanks! Yeah i've never really been a dog person. I liked them but they always seemed to stink and i hated getting all slobbery. Then we got a husky and another and another.

Hehe! I'm waiting for our family to probably end up growing like that, too. Razz To be honest I wasn't planning on having a dog because I'm a Emetophobic. So having to clean up after a dog like that.. yeah.

But after reading so much about Huskies--I just couldn't help myself! The happiness far outweighs the fear! Smile

Ah yeah, my pups make me happy when they're not making want to pull my hair out. But that's just because i have three and two of them don't exactly get along well. When it was just Maya it was easier. Smile

Aww, hehe! Really!? I can't imagine two huskies not getting along! But I guess that's an unreasonable thought that huskies can get along with everything and everyone. XD

Thank you! And your Zuko is a cutie as well!

Gosh, I WAS going to spell it "Kodah" as well! LOL! How ironic! I don't know what made me drop the "H" but I did, hehe.

I know I felt the same way about the "H" Autumn! Very Happy

Hi Jennet! Thank you! Smile Oh gosh I am so happy that they did--are they on here, I'd love to contact them? I wonder if it was from the same litter!?

That makes me feel better about the breeder, too! Their website says that they get "lots" of socialization at the kennel (one of the reasons I chose him), but when I asked him he said that they barely had socialization with strangers or anyone besides their litter at that point. It made me very worried! Sad

OH How adorable!!!!! I saw that litter on the "Available Puppies" page, and we were going to originally try to get one from that litter but they were all taken!

I will have to contact them. They are such cuties, I hope they're doing well!

Oh no! It sounds like Kay just doesn't get along. Sad

When / how did you get him? I definitely agree from the other post too that he's probably trying to find his place in the pack.

Welcome to the forum!

Your Koda is adorable. Mishka hasn't had any issues with meeting people, kids, etc. You just have to start them out as soon as you get them. He was good with a couple of dogs we ran into but my friend's female corgi he was NOT happy about meeting yesterday. That could be because she can be a bit much.

Thanks Ashleigh and Olivia!

I want to start Koda out ASAP but since he doesn't have all of his shots, we can't take him out. We're going to be inviting friends over to meet him but I do have concerns about him not knowing any other dogs until he's had his final shots. Sad

Thank you both for the welcome and I'm glad that you're puppies are doing great, and to meet others that bought from Mike, too! Smile

I wish we could have a puppy get together! Y'all are so far away, though! Wink

We got her about 5 months ago and she was a stray at the shelter. She's a rude and dominant dog, I've been working on getting her less rude since Maya hates rude dogs. (who doesn't Razz ) Maya is also dominant, i'm hoping with time they'll eventually get along. I'm giving it about a year and if they still just can't live together then we'll re-home her. They've gotten much better, i think were just going through a rough patch right now. They don't fight to hurt each other anymore it's mainly dominance issues now.

Welcome to the forum. Koda is beautiful! Just wanted to share what we were told when we brought our baby home....our trainer and our vet agreed, that although the shots are super important, the need to socialize our pup outweighed the risks of our puppy coming down with something. Once we had his poop test cleared for parasites, he was ok to start puppy kindergarten. He started that class at 10 weeks old. I swear it is the best thing we ever did with Qannik because he absolutely loves ALL dogs. He's 14 months old now, and goes to daycare twice a week with no problems whatsoever. Best of luck with you new little guy!
