huskyhuddle said: His mask looks a lot like Balto’s <3 are you fostering or is he yours!?

Yeah it does look like his! I’m basically fostering him. His owners DO want him back but can’t have him right now… it’s complicated and a pain in the butt. -.- lol

Suddenly there’s another dog in my house without my pack’s manners and ugh.. haha..

I hope he gets home soon but in the meantime he’s in a good place! This way you get to test out huskies for future reference :)

meow-stiic asked:

I named my first cat pumpkin because he was orange. After he passed away, I rescued this little orange kitten. I couldn't name him Pumpkin because there can only be one Pumpkin. So I named him Carrot! But my dog's name is blue and we always call him Blueberry.

thats adorable.. I have two orange cats too and if it wasn’t for my fiance insisting on super hero themed names then one of them would be pun’kin and the other would have been gumbo. My dogs end up with food nicknames despite having nonfood given names, Ani is banana nut muffin (or anna bannana), Hubble is tater tot, and Balto is dumplin’ 

I love when people name their dogs after food. Waffles, omlette, kiwi. My brother is getting a corgi. I have already named him Colonel Crackers. There is no other option. He needs a little red coat with brass buttons and little military hat. Its gonna happen.

I took Ani with me late last night because she caught a toad and murdered it in the house and I thought she was going to die of toad toxin poisoning while I was gone. She got a car ride, lots of cuddles, and a few French fries for her trouble.

another example in which a dog is probably uncomfortable and stressed for the sake of a funny internet video - ears back, eyes squinted/closed, tense and closed mouth (HAHA HE’S LIKE SMILING RIGHT?? nope) all body language of being stressed


it is also wagging its tail and lifting its leg to try and appease the person stressing it, i believe

I’m guessing you guys didn’t even bother clicking the link and watching the rest of the videos? This is a shiba inu. This is their body language almost specific to this breed. This is their happy signals— trust me, if you had an unhappy stressed shiba, it wouldn’t think twice to bite the crap out of you. Click the link, watch the videos— and not just one or two, but as many as you can. Smile shiba=happy shiba.

Send this to my friend, a dog trainer and a behaviorist"Of course you can see some stress signals there but you must not forget one thing; dog behavior is not black and white. Some dogs, even breed, can communicate in a way that seems stressful to others. Get to know your dog and don’t only read the signals, read the situation as well. "

I get crap for “stressing out” my dogs. Sorry but not every breed expresses itself it the same way. My huskies are not golden retrievers or labs. Sweeping generalizations can be just as dangerous as total ignorance when it comes to animal behavior.

According to some people, my dogs are in a state of perpetual fear. Oh, and I starve them too.Yay! :D

They tell me Balto is malnourished as well&#8230; And Ani is too fat and some people don&#8217;t believe me when unsay I didn&#8217;t dock Hubble&#8217;s tail. I think pointy eared dogs and sight hounds just get a lot of unnecessary criticism. When husky ears go down that in no way means they are stressed!

September Photo Challenge Day 17: meal time

Sorry for the late post! I decided to do a video instead. Look at Hubble’s good manners. We do this before every meal!
