|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.

My husband and I have two huskies. We've had our girl for about 7.5 years and her brother for a little over a year. The boy, Mavi, is cool calm and collected as can be. His sister, Shea, is a little more on edge at times. We also call her catdog (LOL) cause she can have an attitude sometimes. My brother and sister in law had us watch their 8 month old this past weekend. We weren't sure how to read Shea. She was talking and howling at the baby and when we put the baby down on her level it was almost as though she wanted to go after my niece like a cat. (Of which she hates cats, it's like a game to catch and shake them...honestly, she claimed one cat several years ago). Maybe she was just super curious of what is that little human. Note: We also have my husbands 10 year old daughter part time (of whom she loves) and we have several other niece and nephews that she's used to (and when she's tired of them she goes to a different area to avoid). Maybe it was just me being SO NERVOUS knowing that if Shea started to act out there's no way my 8 month old niece could defend herself like another dog or cat would. Not sure what to think...
One day, my husband and I would like to start our own family. How can we prepare our girl for a possible arrival and new addition? I read that there will be jealousy but they learn to understand the new baby is part of the pack and okay. Was this past weekend just a momentary jealousy thing because I was paying attention to my niece? Was I just SUPER NERVOUS for my nieces safety? Probably a mixture of both.
Anyone have an experience with this? Input? Suggestions? Thoughts?

When the time comes for you to bring home your own baby things will be completely different. Don't forget she will have your entire pregnancy to note the many changes that come with bringing home an infant. She will take a lot of cues from your behavior, nervousness and signals. I think you will be more comfortable about introductions when it is your own.
My Dakota will go for cats too but he is an angel with my babies. Our first child he got to meet shortly after we brought her home from the hospital. We were very calm and relaxed. I held our daughter to let him have a sniff while we had multiple people ready to step in should anything have gone unexpectedly. He was so sweet, sniffed her a short while and then we lifted her away. He was cool, calm and collected when we brought number 2 home. He actually didn't even care when number 2 joined us. We are currently expecting baby number 3 in less than 2 months and I expect he could care less.
