Siberian Saturday - It's not a wolf, it's a husky!
I hope your enjoying your weekend so far :)
We are having a pretty laid back weekend. Things have been super busy, so it's time for a break!
Today we are joining Ruckus the Eskie in his Sepia Saturday blog hop. You can join too! Just follow the linky code at the bottom of this post.
If your owned by a husky, you most likely will know exactly what i'm talking about in this post!
Husky Fun Fact :
Husky owners always get asked the CRAZIEST questions!
There have been so many times when I have taken my huskies out for walks, and been asked if they are mixed with wolves. When I answer no, some people have even tried to argue with me!
There are other times, when a husky owner will go to a dog park, and people are literally scared of your dogs, because of their wolf like appearance.
Some will even have the nerve to tell you, that there is no place in a dog park for dogs who look like wolves, as it "scares" people. This has not happened to me, BUT I know a few people, who have experienced this.
Our huskies have every right to be at dog parks!
It's a husky, not a wolf!
Loved this, and had to share it.
Those of us who are owned by Siberian Huskies, are asked these questions (in the photo above) more often then you would think!
A lot of people think huskies only come in certain colors, such as grey, or black and white. Because of their thoughts, they will argue that your huskies are not pure bred.
What many people don't understand, is that huskies can come in all different colors, and even sizes too!
Check out this husky color chart.
The other one I like out of the above photo is
" no, they are not going to bite you . . . I might though!"
For whatever reason, people always think huskies are vicious!
Meanwhile, these dogs are one of the most loving gentle breeds out there!
Siberian huskies are amazing family pets, and are no more vicious then a Golden Retriever or a Beagle.
Of course you have heard stories about a vicious husky attack, we have all heard stories of several different breeds attacking. Let's not blame the breed, shall we?
Another one I have heard a lot, is that Mika is not husky because she has what is called Bi eyes. One blue eye, and one brown eye.
If you go back to the link I posted earlier, and scroll to the bottom, you will see the husky eye chart.
So, basically I am thinking that I should make up a leaflet, as someone on FB suggested, and carry it around to hand out to people, before they start asking these questions. Ha!
These are my huskies, not my wolves!
I would also like to make a point, that Husky / wolf Hybrids can be pawfectly furiendly pups as well! Even if I was walking around with a hybrid, it doesn't mean he isn't furiendly! When in the proper care, they can make wonderful pets as well!
That's all from the Sibe tribe today guys, thanks for stopping by, and see you Monday!
