|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.

Hi all, I've got a 4 year old husky which I've had from birth. Recently I have had a miscarriage and since then she has hardly eaten, she's just been sleeping constantly which is unusual for her. She loves a talking ball and since then she's hardly wanted to play with it. Is there anything you suggest to help her feel better?

Zigabell, I'm going to suggest the obvious - she's picking up on your postpartum depression (is it correct to speak of postpartum referring to a miscarriage - and you have my sympathy, btw)
I'm a guy so I don't really understand all that stuff ... sorry ... if you're up to it, you might want to take a look at this site. Since I've already said I don't understand what you're going through, bear with me a bit ... you've suffered a very significant loss (how's that for an understatement) and it's natural for you to feel "under the weather" emotionally and it's just as natural for your pup to pick up on those feelings.
If you aren't already, I'd think about asking your MD about some medicine for depression ... that will help "kick start" you to feeling better about life and, I'll bet, that when you start feeling better she will too. It might sound odd, but one of my pups is really good about sensing when I'm down and he's a nut about irritating me till I feel better ... maybe between the two of you you can help each other feel better about life.
(( For the ladies in the crowd, and we have more than a few, if I'm completely or even uncomfortably off base here, please let me know. I deal with personal depression but I've never had to deal with this side of depression.... ))

Thank you, I'll take a look at the site. She does pick up on my feelings a lot and I've already been to my doctor but obviously it's going to take time for me. I worry about her cause she rarely goes a few days without eating, I know huskies only eat when they're hungry, and I don't want her to make herself ill (physically and oppose to mentally)

Lots of walks could help both of you. My condolences on your loss.
