Hi Janet , I know we've discussed this a few times before re the ASPCA , but even if they ... the RSPCA name, I'm sure they have to stick to certain rules and regulations of the main RSPCA body. Alison

Nope - no connections at all.

So are you considering one of the pups?

To be honest, I'm embarrassed to ask Rhonda, after she offered me first pick and I said yes and then ... seniors. I do regularly scour the ads at Sleddog Central and the New England Sleddog Club, though. You never know.

Tasha was about a year old when we got her, and frankly I could go the rest of my life without experiencing that again. There are tons of Siberians out there; there have to be some that can pull, or have pulled, in the age group you're looking for.

that's the thing that makes me go hmmm. Cherokee was totally Sibe-like in temperament, except that on a couple of ... her temperament screamed Sibe, though. she never met a stranger, was super dog-friendly, playful, and was a bit of joker.

The protective streak does sound un-Sibelike, but every dog is an individual. Once in a while there is a story about a Greyhound protecting its owner, which is about as unusual as a Siberian protecting its owner. Unlikely, but not impossible.

Thanks. She looks pretty good for 10 1/2, I think.

aw, she's still a young 'un in Husky years!

That's certainly my hope. She had some health problems a couple of years back, a bout with MMM and some some isolated, unexplained seizures, but otherwise has been a healthy dog.
blue eyes may be more striking, but i much prefer brown eyes. i know it's just a silly aesthetic thing, but i can't help it.

The blue eyes are beautiful, but I think the brown eyes are more expressive. I know Melinda disagrees, so maybe it's just my two blue-eyed guys. Mukluk's eyes are very light blue and I find them difficult to read. Boomer's are a little darker, but he's such a loveable goofball, I'm not sure there *is* anything to read.

Too bad there aren't any pictures of Cherokee.

If I do get another dog it won't be until spring (I'm going to be out of town for over a week at the end of February, and I don't want to board a new dog right off the bat). Spring is probably the best time to find decent sleddogs that need homes.
It's been very windy here and because it's been so cold the snow has stayed granular. That means that it's drifting like crazy, and today's outing was absolutely exhausting for all of us because the trails were so deep in some places. Another dog would have made a huge difference.

I don't think they're less expressive, just different. I disagree that blue eyes are less expressive, of course.

I have only a vague idea of where you are geographically, but do you know about the races being sponsored the 24th and 25th by the Siberian Husky Club of Greater Cleveland? http://www.siberiancleveland.org/raceinfo.htm

An awful lot of them seem to wind up in shelters in the spring. That means they have crummy owners, but they could still be decent sleddogs.

You just have two pulling now? Mukluk says he would love to come visit and help. He says he can probably pull the sled all by himself. (He was considered for adoption by a recreational musher, but the guy was concerned about any residual effects from Muk's bout with heartworm disease. Muks had HW for at least 2 - 3 years according to the vet, and is still barrel chested.)

They're definitely different. Maybe I just need to gaze into them more.

I'm about 50 miles due east of Cleveland. The location of these races are sort of in between, and a bit south. I was aware they had sleddog races and demos at Punderson, but didn't know it was this weekend. I'm doing a GH home visit on Saturday but maybe I can get there on Sunday. Thanks!

Heh. I just noticed what the original dates were for these races. IIRC it was about 55 degrees on January 3, with, of course, no snow.
