      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

New baby girl!

 

Were welcoming Coco into the family as our second "kid". She is about 5 Years old and comes to us as an adoption from a neglectful former home.

Were gonna have to address some bad teeth issues and potentially a knee surgery (TPLO).

Regardless, we have never had a "Northern breed" and we are finding out they are mighty vocal and a wee bit on the needy side.

 

Any Husky tips are welcomed.

Shes already a sweet kid, not really a digger but I can see the fur thing becoming a massive proj. I will say tho that she is hella vocal, whining, barking, mewing, and howling seem to be her thing when shes excited about a drive or walk OR giving attention to our old girl Jumar, the calm and chill Labrador (seems funny to refer to Jumar like that when she was a psycho stoke nut case in her early years :). From all the folks we talked to, Huskies are BIG on the vocal thing. She will probably need a TPLO on her left knee and I know shes gonna be letting us hear all her concerns when shes on recovery.

but shes in a way better home with tons of love and attention and activity :)

 

Thanks!

We found it wasn't just the digging, it was the digging to get to our neighbor's chickens that was the problem. Our husky is great with our kids, though now at 11 he is less tolerent of our two year old than he was when our first was that age. He does seem to take his agression out on the unfortunate wildlife that happens into his fenced yard. He has killed a racoon, a quail, a snaffle, a couple of rats and some mice. He didn't actually kill the neighbor's chickens, but he scare them pretty badly. For this an general lack of interest in staying with us we have to keep him on leash at all times when we are out of our yard.

I've heard it said that all babies look like Winston Churchill...

 

There is an uncanny resemblance!
