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.

A warm hello from the floppy pup!

Greetings! This is Kazu, the floppy-noodle-pup that is the newest addition to my heart. He came from a local rescue only six days ago and he already has made his way into my heart. His foster mom estimated his age to be about six months old and he's already 35lbs and 23 inches tall at his shoulders! I think he'll grow up to be a big boy.
He's been a lot of fun to keep up with, he's willful, demanding, and extremely
playful. All things I love about huskies really. He is sharp as a tack, and is catching on to my routine more quickly than I ever anticipated he would. We live at home while I finish up college, and he's already made great friends with my mom's Retriever mix, Maxwell. We're making really good (and fast!) progress with my brother's American Pitbull Terrier, Bonnie; thanks to my boyfriend, Alan's, experience with big, stubborn dogs!
I sought him out after losing my first love of a husky, Bella, to congenital kidney failure at the young age of five years old. I 'adopted' her from a friend of a friend who had bought two husky puppies, against their parents wishes, and ended up having to get rid of the girl asap and was going to put her in the pound if no one would take her. So of course, my family jumped at the chance to take her in. We were only supposed to hold her until we found someone who was experienced with the breed to be her family, but she quickly took me as her human, (she jumped over baby gates late at night just to hang out with me) and the rest was history. I had never met a pup quite like Bella. She was sweet, sassy, and incredible crafty. I had my work cut out for me, but I loved every minute I had with her. I don't know why she chose me instead of my other family members, (my mom adored
her and showed it frequently!) but she helped me out of a dark moment in my life; I owe her everything for that.
At first I didn't want another husky out of fear that I would get a completely different individual and expect it to be just like her. I looked around and applied to adopt different types of dogs from a few rescues. All of them turned out to have two or three people who were in line before me for adoption, so while I didn't get to adopt them, they at least found good homes. Then I got a feeling to at least take another look at huskies on rescue sites, and there Kazu was. I just got this feeling that I had to try again, and it had to be him.
So here I am, with a six month old husky pup, and a whole new set of questions for raising this guy! It's good to meet everyone, and I appreciate any pointers you guys give in the future.
