|Husky of the Month|
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.

|Subject: Did Ami Alert ?!!? Fri Sep 25, 2015 12:29 pm|| |
I've always said that if we were ever threatened on a walk, Ami would be between my legs cowering. Well, I'm not sure but last night, while taking Ami for one last pee, a man showed up at the corner, in the shadows, looking a bit unstable on his feet. I vaguely noticed him at first but was going to continue...then Ami whipped his head up from sniffing, turned around, stood very much at attention, stiff, then something he has never done in the 2 years we have had him - he gave a low, sharp, growling sort of sharp bark.
I decided to head to the motel office, we then met a couple walking the other way and he was his usual more than friendly, tail wagging, ears back happy self to meet them...
The man that sent our shackles up had sort of closed in on us, asked if Ami was friendly (he was about 25' away) - I said "yes"...Wayne said I should have said "no". But I don't want some jackass shooting my dog if it should ever come to that...
Am I foolish for having been so worried...

I would have said no. But then again neither am I lol. It sounds like quite an ordeal. I don't think it was foolish. Strange dudes are scary. Ami probably picked up on your nervousness. They can be pretty sharp.

or be vague and say depends on the day and the person. i would trust his behavior towards the man and go the other direction like you had.

Avalanche has never met a human that he didn't like - forget that! Sasha is reserved with almost everyone - forget that!
I once had a lab who I had never heard bark in warning; play - yes, warning, not even close. At the time I was living in an apartment complex that backed some "woods" where the kids would party at night and sometimes during the day. If they were out there, Lady would sniff and ignore them unless one came over to pet the pretty dog. Then one day there was an older man out there - he was picking up the kids trash aluminum cans - and for some reason Lady went on alert, got between me and him and with hackles fully up, just stood there. He started walking toward us and she let out a bark like I'd never heard from her. He had a few choice words about dogs and backed off.
Some people just give off vibes that the dogs sense and when I have a dog who's uncomfortable with a human, I tend to respect their opinion. In your case, I'd have said that Ami wasn't friendly, left it at that and left.

Yup...probably should have held on to his collar and said "No". Let people think my marshmallow is a hungry wolf...
