That rabbit has no fear, and also humps cats.

It also eats stereos and everything in the garden below about two feet high.

It is kind of cute though, the little b*stard.

Well I tried to get my cat to pose with a Leatherman, but he was having none of it, so here's an oldy:

That's not my dog, just a corgi I found online.  I gravitate towards bigger dogs these days since I do security work, and have a Siberian Husky and a German Shepherd/Rottweiler mix.  Here's a pic of my two last winter:

Grant,
I really want a Siberian Husky but I don't have the time you need to give to one (or two.....or three) of those awsome creatures. 

Did quite a bit of reading on them beforehand and had to accept  that I could not be a responsible owner just yet, since me and my wife work.

Was thinking of joining the Siberian Husky Club Of Great Britain as a non owner member to get in on some 'Husky' days out etc.


Had this on my desktop for a while...

image off Google..................................*sigh*........ one day :'(






Huskies are great dogs- I love my old guy.  He's 11 and a half now, and still kicks the arses of dogs a fraction of his age at the dog park.  There's a three year old Retriever he likes to play with and that dog (same size, 1/4 age!) has yet to get the upper hand on Chinook!

That having been said, a Husky is not a normal type dog- don't expect a well behaved, easily trainable, lie at Master's feet kind of animal.  Even so called domesticated Huskies are independent minded, powerful dogs that are bred to work.  Work for them means running, and they will run at every opportunity, and spend the time between opportunities plotting on how to create an opportunity.  They will plow through you to get out an open door and take off.  The other major difficulty is that they are very instinctual when it comes to smaller animals.  Small dogs are fine, but hamsters, hedgehogs, birds, cats, fish, rats, mice, rabbits.... all are fair game, and a Husky will take great delight in hunting and killing them right in front of you, then playing with the corpse until they feel it's been tenderized well enough to eat.  My wife didn't believe me when I told her that's what they did, until it happened right in front of her.

Huskies are fantastic dogs, but they aren't right for most people.  They are hard to train simply because they don't usually give a rat's butt what you want them to do.  If there's food involved, they will listen, but only grudgingly, and you can tell they are only paying lip service to get what they want, and once they have the treat, well, piss on you!

If you know what you are in for (and joining a Husky club will teach you that!) then they are fantastic dogs.  If you want a wolf like animal that looks good and acts like Lassie, White Fang or any of the dogs in Snow Dogs, then forget it- start looking at Alsatians.  If however you like semi wild animals that are a source of almost constant amusement (just wait till the woo-ing and howling starts!) that's good with kids and leaves giant tumbleweed like clumps of fur around the house then a Husky just might be right for you!  :D

Husky Woo:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MM57ejNQmEc

They do that whenever they don't want to be ignored- when there's food about, when they want to go out, when you are watching TV.... or when you talk to them, they respond.

I hate to make them sound like such a horrible breed, but more Huskies are put down in shelters every year than any other pure breed, simply because they are a very hard dog to handle, and are betrayed by how bloody beautiful they are.  Husky puppies are about the cutest thing on the planet:





People can't resist these little balls of fluff, not knowing that Huskies are diggers, so you have to watch the carpets and furniture (I had a mattress that suddenly developed a large hole in the middle) and the trauma dealt to their kids when the new puppy devours Jr's hamster on Jr's bed.

Thanks for the advice, pics and video.   :tu:

In one of the books I read there was a list of ‘for and against’ in owning a Sibe, and most of what you say seems/is typical - but I can live with that.  As a cat lover I like the semi-wild character. I’m not so keen on the lapdog thing.

Owning a Siberian will be one big commitment we’re just not ready for yet:  at first I naively thought our garden at the back (though well big enough) was also safe enough to let one loose until I read about their digging skills and ingenuity for climbing, so I’d have a lot of work cut out for me just in the garden alone.  Then there’s the whole attention (I'd need at least two) and exercise thing that a working dog needs.

I would be selfish just to get one because I like em’ or that they look nice – as some idiots do  – so I can only do my homework admire them for now.
As yours is now reached 11 ½   it’s a good testimony you are a first-class owner.
 
I’ve heard about them running off and keep running and running and running……….. Only eventually to be run down or shot by a farmer.  :'(

It's a pleasure to talk to a Sibe owner  :salute:

Beagles are a hard breed to keep too. You can never ever let them off the leash or you will never see them again. They put their nose to the ground and off they go. The howl at the wind, the neighbors kid, the cat, at the tv, and the dishwasher. You gotta put them in their crates if you leave the house....even for a minute..or they will destroy your home. The older beagle figured out how to open cabinets. They have this thing that if something runs from them they must give chase. They hide their toys and treats in every nook and cranny in the house. I had rawhide under my pillow last night.

They are supersmart all of a sudden when it comes to food. I can hold a milkbone in my hand and they will sit, lay, rollover on command to get it. I play a game with them called "Hide the Cheese". I'll hide a piece of american cheese while they are outside and sure enough they can sniff it out anywhere.

US Customs uses beagles to locate fruits, veggies and drugs at the airport.

Imagine, someone actually bred those traits into beagles!  Those traits are what someone felt would be great to have in a dog!  :D

Paul- if you are used to cats then a Husky might be good for you as their attitude is very similar to a cat's.  If you have cats when it's time for you to get a Siberian though, get a puppy, as young as you can find so he grows up with the cat, and then probably won't eat it.  Careful though, as the Husky will probably still eat the neighbor's cats even though he has one of his own!

In the field while hunting rabbits and the sort, that yelling they do is great. In the house while trying to watch the game, not so much. Beagles are very smart dogs and are great hunting dogs.

This is my little guy. My wife decided to surprise me with him yesterday! He is a awesome little dog. But, man he is hell on wheels with the whining. Good Lord if we can just get past this part he will be perfect.
