Forum Rules
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, I'm new to the husky owner thing... We recently adopted an 8 yr old rescue named Star. He's a total sweetie, well behaved and no signs of abuse. He checked out healthy as can be at the vet with a minor ear infection we've since treated. The only issue is he sleeps all the time, if he's not eating or on a walk (about 4 a day), he just sleeps. Is this normal? I'm worried he might be depressed. Anyone else experience this with their husky?

Well welcome to the forum family and Kudos for adopting an 8 y/o, I love the older dogs. Star seems to be alot like my Cali aka Miss Thang. If she isn't walking or eating, she is sleeping. I was reading my new "Huskies for Dummies" book that I got through North Star Husky Rescue and it says they can sleep up to 14 hours a day. How long are you walks in distance for all day? Cali gets about 4 min to 6 max miles each day and she sleeps/nap alot of the day. Another normal things is, A tired husky is a great husky. You want the dog to be tired, if you have one that is, you are giving the dog the exercise it wants. Now I could be wrong, but I think that is perfectly normal.

Where are you from state wise?
