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.

Tia has always been skittish around statues, but she's gotten a lot better. I've only had Loki for 8 months and this is the first time I've had him near any. This is also the first time I've ever heard him bark. He's never barked before...he only talks (like most huskies).
Anyone else's pups afraid of statues?
A super-quiet downtown Saturday morning and we're in a kid's park with my dog barking at the statues.

Mine have never been around statues, but just recently Mya started getting freaked out over a huge light post that we pass on walks. Been going on the same route for 2yrs and now is when she notices it

Haha it's so funny to to me when husky owners get surprised by their pups first actual full on dog bark, maybe it's because they don't really tend to bark? Idk could be wrong

Awww, that's so funny and cute!
Elmer- Honestly, anytime Shaqua barks (a rarity) it surprises me. She is SUCH a quiet dog. I guess most huskies are? She will bark occasionally when trying to play with another dog who seems disinterested, but I can go weeks without hearing her bark once.

Bella does weird little growl at a rabbit statue someone around the block from me has. Havent noticed jasper doing anything but whining and grunting at me because i wont let him yank me around on a walk. When i first brought them home we took a short walk that night and they were yipping and running away from leaves blowing down the street but the got over it preety quick.

When I lived with my mom, we lived across the street from these people with like 3 horses..boy Kennedy did NOT like them!! Barked at them every chance she had.
Well there is this mall in Lincoln that is named The Alamo..so you can guess what kind of statue they had.. We were at a stoplight and she noticed the horse statue and started FREAKING out!! Barking and growling and just plain carrying on. If I could have taken a picture of the lady's face in the car next to me.. It was seriously perfect. She looked like she thought Kennedy was about to jump into her car and rip her face off. I was dying laughing.
So yes, Kennedy HATES any and all horse statues. Sheba thinks statues are real, so she just wants to play with them and gets frustrated when they don't play back.. weirdo.

We've not gone by any statues, it isn't something we see here much at all, I'll be on the hunt for some now!
