Living With A Siberian Husky

(Click To View Full Sized Image)

Living with a Siberian Husky is literally like living with a four legged child, especially when you live with our one "Kaiser".
When we first decided to get a dog i had said to my partner Marie that it had to be a Siberian Husky, it was always my dream to own one of those dogs since i was a child after seeing them in movies, everything about the breed in my eyes is just amazing, from the looks of them to their personalites, i can't honestly say that there is another breed off dog out there that gives me the same chills.

So our search for the perfect dog and breeder began, Marie spent months searching personal adds and looking up Siberian Husky breeders online until we stumbled across Okamis Kennel owned by Helena Skoglundh. We contacted her and it was just lucky that she had a set of pups due about 6 months later i think it was, so after speaking to her over a course of several weeks we decided that she was definitely the breeder we had been searching for.

Well after months of waiting little Kaiser was finally born and Helena had contacted us and told us that she had found the perfect Siberian Husky for us amongst the litter of pups that she had got, i distinctly remember her describing him as the "Clown" of the pack and i must admit she was not half wrong about that. 
From the minute we got him he showed us that he was definetly a clown in every sense of the word.
So now we have had him for approximately 2 years+ and everyday is a new adventure with him.

Siberian Huskys are described as:
  • Eager
  • Friendly
  • High Energy
  • Intelligent
  • Escape Artists
Kaiser is however not your typical Siberian Husky, i don't know if it was because we were determined from the get go or what it is with him, but he is definetly all of the above except the Escape Artist part. From the day we got him we always gave him slight freedom allowing him to walk off leash etc (this is not recommended to everyone) and perhaps that is why we have never had any issues with him trying to run off or dig holes out of our backgarden, but he certianly shows all the other traits of the breed and alot more.

I would say that Kaiser is probably my best friend in the world, no matter what he gets up to, which include going into the kitchen where he is not allowed to be, or chasing the neighbours cats in the backgarden i just find it extreamly hard to stay mad at him no matter how much i try, i mean he just has to come up to me and lay his head on my lap and look at me with those big brown puppy dog eyes of his and in that minute all is forgiven.

The only major downside to owning a Siberian Husky is the fact of the shedding, they are meant to shed around twice a year or as it's known in the dog world "Blowing Their Coat", but our little Sibe seems to shed all year around, if like myself your wardrobe consists of black clothing, then you better be prepared to look like a Siberian Husky yourself. Their hair gets absolutly everywhere and by everywhere i mean EVERYWHERE!!!
But i guess the pro's way outway the cons of owning one.

I personally wouldn't have it any other way and if im honest if i could afford it i would probably own another 3 or 4 quite easily without thinking about it.

So if your looking for a dog and a best friend for life i would seriously urge you to look at the Siberian Husky, however be sure you have the time and the patience to deal with the breed, they are not easy dogs to deal with, but treated the right way and you will have a friend for life.

Thanks for popping over to my blog, now I'm following. Not sure if you are trying to generate traffic or just writing for the hell of it. If traffic, you should have all of your 'on-line gaming' pals, just log on to the site and click the GFC follow button. They don't necessarily have to follow, but it gives you more airplay so to speak. (and you could tell them to hit up my site if you like and that they don't have to follow).
There is a new dad's blog site that just came out, not sure how good or not its going to be, but you could check out - http://www.daddyvoiceboks.com/?xg_source=msg_mes_network

Lastly, I like the blog about your husky, we have three dogs here - english springer spaniel, SPCA hound dog mix and a french bulldog, all great in their own way.
