Another enabler! Cate you hear that and right near you at that. What could be better?

The first one looks so sad and pathetic. The coat needs a good brushing.
The other was definitely too cute for words. Thanks for sharing.

She's blowing coat in that photo, and while people with large dog yards tend to just let the coat take care of itself, in my experience even with a committed plucking regimen the dog is just going to look mangy until it's finished shedding out. She's a pretty attractive dog if you ignore the shedding issue.

That's horrible. I went back and looked at the dog Melinda posted and yeah blowing coat. Blade never looks like that but then he isn't a Sibe with that much fur.

My real problem is Sleddog Central. Dangerous ads, like this: http://www.sleddogcentral.com/french.htm

is that much toe splay normal (yeah, i know, what's normal?)? i haven't really taken a good look at husky feets, so i'm curious.
And how's the bottom picture here for cute: http://www.sleddogcentral.com/classifieds/sullivan.htm

cute! the thought of that much puppiness in one place is terrifying, though.

she's beautiful!
elliott is butt-ugly when he's blowing coat. it's just one of those things you put up with. i'm sure people think i never groom the poor, abused boy, but i do. during coat blowing, brushing, combing, and plucking are a way of life. it doesn't help the dog look any less moth-eaten, but it helps keep the hairballs out of the carpet and furniture.

Sibes tend to have pretty tight feet, but some of the racing line dogs have great big clown feet with a little splay to 'em. Emmett, for all of his other conformational flaws, has really nice feet - big, but close.

Image is just finishing up her most recent coat blow, which means that she's nekkid except for her ruff, which is shedding like crazy in big patchy spikes. She looks like an insane dog.

Yes. Even if you get rid of all the protruding tufts, the dog still looks really strange because there is a sort of dividing line between coat that's lost its undercoat and coat that still has undercoat. They look pretty mangy until they're completely finished. My Siberians started a half-hearted second blow late in the fall, and never really finished it, so they've been shedding mildly all winter. I told them the other day that because I've been deprived of the one time of year when they normally shed hardly at all, and things have been hairy for months, there Will Be Only One Coat Blow This Year. I was very firm about it.

Very attractive.
