|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.

Third thread for the day, I am going to exhaust everyone before my first day here is up.
I am vey unfamiliar with huskies so feel free to let me know that this is just a throw back / normal husky colouring.
However Loki is getting spots, the older he gets the more pop up and the darker they get. At 8 weeks he had four small spots on his leg. Now at 13 weeks, those spots are much darker ( obviously bigger ) and he has them everywhere from his stomach, chest and neck.
As we know nothing about him or his pedigree I am just curious. Not curious enough for a DNA test. Just wanted to see if anyone else has a Husky with spots.
This area has the most concentrated spots. Everywhere else is just one or two here and there.
Without going hunting for a better photo this is an example of the same leg at 8 weeks old.

Spots are normal. My dog, Rorschach, got his name due to his spots. He has spots on the hind side of all of his legs and has a considerably amount of spots on his snout to the degree that he looks like an ink blot test.

Yeah, like the others have mentioned spots aren't out of the ordinary. The markings on a husky can change drastically in the first 18-24 months, so you'll probably notice a lot of coat markings coming and going within the next few months.

Thanks for all the advice. Starting to realise just how diverse their coats and colouring are!
Looking forward to watching him grow and change over time.
Looking forward to him growing into those ears too
Would love to see photos of your pup with spots, I find the colour side of it fascinating.
