|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.
Our current rescue spotlight is:|

Hubby reinjured his knee Saturday. When we went to bed Saturday night, with Ami playing draft dodger to the front door as usual, Wayne rolled over to turn out the light. And let out a loud screech as he aggravated the knee. Ami came running into the bedroom, gave a quick check on Wayne from the side of the bed, scurried around to the bottom, jumped up on the bed, hustled over to lie halfway beside/on Wayne and settled down against him. First licking Wayne's arm, chest and face. Then, proceeded to stay there the whole night, watching over him in a most protective way.
Normally, Ami may, once every few days, come up on the bottom of the bed to get his ears rubbed and chest scratched. But never to snuggle and certainly leaving as soon as I get in bed. This was really sweet and humbling. With a very clear sense that he would guard and protect his pack member. So different from his usual happy go lucky goof ball or the scared puppy when there is gunshot or thunderstorms, there was a seriousness, a sense of majesty, gravity...I can't really out it into words.
Certainly much different from the time he hauled me over a ditch in chase of a critter. I landed face down in wet snow, Ami gave barely a glance, walked towards my head and, less than a foot from my face lifted his leg and peed
Guess we know who rates

Spider is like that when jerry is about to have a seizure. She makes him sit and then stands over him do he doesnt fall or roll into something but for the most part she is pretty useless. My hubby had a major seizure in sept when my family was over and my mom made the mistake of trying to pull spider off him. It was the first time ive ever seen her show teeth and mean business to anyone or anything with squirt being an exception. Then there was the thing with my grandpa and like you with ami i was amazed af spider.
I have also had the take off after something makes me fall and well last time i got a nice spiral fracture in my pinky and a bruised shoulder. Now i just let go and hope her and splinter dont take off together.
Its really interesting to see a dog do something you never expected. Im glad ami and your hubby have that kind of bond

I decided a couple of years ago that if it came down to me or the dogs, it was every man for himself. Three two of them too off after a rabbit I didn't see, they were on a waist belt and I went flying, then got dragged. I'm to old for those kinds of shenanigans. No more waist belt, back to prong collars and wearing their ecollars.
Yeah, the bond between both these dogs and Wayne is white sweet.
