Welcome to another fabulous week of all things husky! You may remember last Saturday I left off with a fact about huskies, and told you I would have the explanation this week.
So, my post today is reflecting from last weeks Siberian Saturday.
A huskies appearance can hugely change from the time they are newborn, to about 1 year old
When you adopt a husky puppy, what you see is definitely not what you get.
Of course, there are certain traits that will stay the same such as their mask, however a lot of the time, their mask can get much lighter as they reach adult, and I have even seen them get darker as well.
A wonderful example of this is my girl, Lexus.
She was a very light creamy sable color, with light raccoon rings around her eyes.
She turned 2 earlier this year and as you can see from the photo, her fur has turned to a dark sable and black color, and the rings around her eyes are much darker from before.
Though she will never loose those bright blues!
You can really see the difference in the above collage.
She has changed so much since she was a young pup, and through all of her adorable stages, she has turned out to be such a gorgeous model husky!
My boy Koda has changed a small amount, but not nearly as much as Lexus.
He has always had that same black patch over his eye.
His fur was a lot lighter as a pup though, it is now black and white rather than the faded black and white.
Throughout my research on how and why huskies change so much, I have learned that the darker colored dogs change much less than a sable color or a grey.
You could potentially adopt a very light grey husky puppy and she could very well end up being almost black in color by the time she is 1 year old.
One more thing to keep in mind, is that (as I have talked about before), a Siberian Husky sheds their inner coat a couple times a year, when this happens their fur will appear lighter, but as the seasons change, they will darken once again.
What you see is not always what you get. At least, not with Siberian Huskies!
Since it is Saturday, that means it is also time for Sepia Saturday.
A blog hop hosted by Ruckus the Eskie and his new co host Earl and Ethel.
This week for my sepia photo, I edited one of the photos from this post.
This is one of my all time fav photos of Lexus.
I have edited it with sepia, and did a couple color pops.
Thanks so much for coming by, and we will see you Monday!
