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.

Just saw this article on one of the facebook H2M2 groups. Pretty interesting to see the different breeds and how they have changed over the years. Huskies are not on the list, thankfully.

Every breed has drastically changed over the last 100 years, especially working dogs, including huskies. Almost every breed has a split between working lines and show lines. Even as someone who wants a show dog and who has a dog bred from show lines, I think this is ridiculous, but, that's the way it goes now a days. Both lines can be bred to the extreme, working lines ignoring the standard for better running results, show lines warping the standard to produce whatever is most pleasing to the eye without considering working abilities. It seems the person that wrote the article randomly selected a few breeds, but you could do this with any breed.
