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 became new on here the beginning of January when we got our Diamond and Diego. January 1st was our 1st day with the precious babies. My husband works all day and I'm home with the babies. So I primarily took care of them. Well on January 9th I fell off a 10ft ladder and smacked the concrete. To make it brief I had a concussion spilt my eyebrow open broke my hip fractured my pelvis and tailbone. Also broke my arm in 3 places. Naturally since the 9th I've been in the hospital. So I was only with. Them 8 days. My husband and father-law have been taking care of them. My question: will i have. To re-train them? I'm thinking yes. My problem is i still cannot put any weight on my leg or my arm. Now the surgery ha s beed done. It may be another 4-6wks before I can really play and love on them. Will they come back around to me? They loved me before this happened. Please give me your opinion. Thanks!

Your dogs have got good caretakers so how about you taking care of you for the time being. I hope that everything heals and goes back where it's supposed to quickly, that sounds like some tumble you took!
Since you were their first "people" when they were adopted, they'll probably be there with tongues aflapping when you get home full time. Dogs know who took care of them, who loved them and they'll remember you ... now, depending on how much they've been spoiled / ignored by the men in your life - well, you may have some retraining to do (men and dogs, yes??)
Be careful, you don't need to have one of them pull you off your feet - at least not until you're on your feet again!

Thank you Twisterill. I do believe there will definitely have to be some re-training to be done. But that's no biggie. I thank you for bringing up the "separate" time they have to have. To be honest this was one thing that did lay heavy on my mind before I mangled myself up. I will definitely be working on this! Unfortunately it's going to awhile before I can do much of anything as I still cannot put any weight on my left leg or use my left arm. It may even be another week or 2. But all will be well eventually. And as intelligent as the puppies are they'll learn. Thank you for your comments and concern. You have a wonderful evening!

Oh my - I am so sorry you took that fall! Hope you heal fast and well!!!
As for the puppies. Siberians are notorious for loving EVERYONE. They would welcome you with open arms even if they never met you. Being their caretaker for 9 days, they will remember you when you return.
Al is right - be careful as they get bigger. My two adults used me as a kite one fateful day, then a drag anchor. Nothing broken but a lot of skin lost. For some reason, I thought it was a good idea for an old lady to attach two prey driven huskies on harnesses to her waist and walk along a critter infested road.
