Time for Siberian Saturday!
Have you ever wondered why huskies howl?
More on that in a moment, first I just have to share this latest graphic that I have created.
I was visiting Pamela from Something Wagging This Way Comes a few days ago, and I came across a Christmas song that she has created her own lyrics for! There was no way I couldn't share this, so I sent an email, let her know my plans, and turned her song into a graphic.
You are all familiar with the song Walking in a winter wonderland, correct?
If not, check it out here :
Now, check out this version! Sibe Style!!
I just love it!
Thank you Pamela for allowing me the use of your lyrics!
On with Siberian Saturday.
Why do huskies howl?
There are many dog breeds out there who like to howl, but 'most' Northern Breeds howl on a regular basis, and for different reasons than others.
Huskies who are kept mostly outdoors will even howl for long periods of time in order to get the attention of other dogs in the neighborhood!
Believe it or not, not all huskies will howl. They are not all vocal. They have the capability, but some will go through their whole life without so much as one single howl.
2 of my huskies love to talk and howl, but it is hard to get one out of my girl Lexus, although it has been done!!
How about you?
Do your huskies (or dogs) sing the song of their people?
A Siberian Huskies howl can be heard up to 10 miles away?
Now, this depends entirely upon the terrain they are in.
In a flatland, the howl will travel louder, longer, however in a suburban area with houses and trees their howl will generally reach around 1 mile away.
One more interesting fact about howling :
Wolves have been known to howl in an enclosed area, to make it sound like there are many more of them then there actually are. This usually occurs when danger is approaching one of their dens.
That's all from the Sibe Tribe today, thanks for coming by and please take a moment to check out our photo contribution to the Sepia Saturday blog hop.

I wanted to let you all know that Pawz N Clawz Jewelry N Things (our handmade pet themed jewelry shop) has made a donation to our local Humane Society, the Ottawa SPCA.
This was because of you that we were able to do that. Our 12 days of Christmas sales event was a success, and for that, we donated a portion of our sales to animals in need. So I want to say a huge thank you for helping us help our local shelter pets.
