Congrats Nikita, Archer, and Cheyanne,
our November HOTM Winners!
Thanks to all for this month's entries!
|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.

Chess is not my first husky. When I was about 4 or 5, my Chow died I was devestated. My dad and I were about to move to Washington so he promised me a husky puppy once we got there since I was in love with my uncle's mally. The Christmas after my 6th birthday, I opened all of my presents then my dad told me that I had a present still in his car that he couldn't wrap so he went outside then opened the front door back up to show me the fluffiest puppy that I'd ever seen. Kinnuq (meaning punk or problem child) was a siberian husky who lived up to his name and my best friend growing up. We moved onto a boat about a year later and he quickly became my laundry buddy and sled dog. When I'd go to do laundry, I'd load up the dock cart, tie him to it, then give it a push and he'd run. He also pulled me on my roller blades around town and pulled my sled when we went into the mountains. He was known all over town and could go into almost any shop or bakery and get a treat of some sort.
As he got older, he started having the hip problems and arthritis so my dad gave him to a friend who had other dogs. Sadly, after a few years, Kinnuq ended up being in so much pain that he had to be put down. I miss him every day but I know that he's not hurting any more. He's probably running through snow, trying to avoid getting in water, and waiting for the day that he gets to greet me with kisses like he did every day when I came home from school.
