    Our first dog

    My wife wanted to get a pet. She wanted to get a cat, but I loathe them. We settled on a dog, and I've always wanted a husky.

    So here's our 4 month old Siberian, Katya:

    A happy dog:



    In somewhat surly mood:



    At the state park with daddy:



    And here she is 2 months ago, right after we got her:

    Don't be caught up in those blue eyes.

    Husky puppyhood is a fast and furious time.
    Exercise the heck out of her and things will be easier.
    A few of the husky owners that I know swear by the bicycle attachments that alllow them to trot next to you while you ride.

    Enjoy your new pup!

    My Grandma had a husky-Siberian timberwolf mix, Cheyanne.
    He was a very large dog.

    Don't find out the hard way that when they slip their collar, a sled dog can run for 3 days without stopping.Obedience training is a must.And also have it chipped. Chuck.

    What a beautiful puppy!! Those eyes are just enchanting. If eyes are the windows to the soul....that one must be sweet.

    Very cute pup.

    Please, if you have not already done so, ask your vet about Avid or Home Again chips and get one. I used to coordinate rescue for the Malinois club here in Florida. It's amazing how many dogs aren't chipped considering how inexpensive and easy it is.

    Don't mean to be a downer.

    Your pup is very cute, and probably just full of the devil. Enjoy!

    Definitely a cute pup...you'll have years of enjoyment and companionship.

    +1 on the chip...best $20-30 dollars you can spend on finding a lost or stolen dog...easy to get from most vets...
    Both my dogs have them...collars and tags can be removed, but the chip is read by a hand held machine that pounds and vets have...no one would know the chip is even there...great insurance.

    When you move or change phone #'s...you simply notify the national center of your new info...again, easy...

    With the cost of vet services and meds...the chip is the cheapest investment you may have...
