Timber- Gone Too- Soon

On October 22, 2012 we said fair well to our dearest boy Timber. Timber was a wolf-dog male we rescued 4 years ago from a terrible situation and gave him a happy life for the remainder of his years. We are so sad we couldn't have had more than 4 years with him, a tumor that we were unaware of suddenly ruptured in his chest and took him almost instantly. He went surrounded by his people and close by to his kennel friends. He has left us with a pretty big hole in our hearts. The healing process continues on- little angel

My humans get double sided dog tags from an engraving/trophy store...on the Front it has our names, on the back it has our address and 2 phone numbers! It actually cost less than the ones at Petsmart which means more toys for us! Woo-Woo!

Do you know anything about your pups parents? Often when breeders make a bad pairing (large bitch to large dog) the pups end up oversize or at the top of the standard...not a fault for a pet, it won't change who they are and how much you love them...detrimental to breeding hopes and show dreams as mentioned in prior posts.

Siberian Husky > Has anyone ever shaved their Husky?

Unless it is medically necessary NEVER shave a Siberian Husky! Siberian Huskies guard hair is used to keep them cool, they are hollow that guides cooler air to the skin. Also Sibes don't have any pigment in their skin so they are easily subjected to sun burns and increased risk of melanoma (skin cancer!). The hair is permanently ruined and often does not grow back with the same consistency and does not protect as well, it does take a long time to grow back, and it throws off the natural shedding process. Shaving for any other reason outside of medical only serves one purpose, makes the human feel better...unfortunately the dog suffers.

For a good Siberian Husky Eye Color explanation go here:

I'd call your dogs eyes either Amber or light brown.

My Sibes Juneau, Dakota, and Diamond (mix) all have blue eyes, my little boy Denali has brown eyes.

He's been evaluated by wolfdog people that have been saving wolfdogs for more years than I have been on this earth, people who testified as experts on the breed in state legislature proceedings, I will take their recomendation on his (and my others) content. Its not just about "pink ears".

From Tamaskan dog club of america- tamaskans have been bred to look like wolves and have a notable lupine appearance, although they contain no recent wolf ancestry

There is a "breed" know as the Tamaskan Wolfdog that is no more wolf than my purebred Siberian huskies but looks as wolfy as any high content I have ever come across. My three are mid content. Rockie is arctic wolf malmute cross. He has the same coat as the arctic but a blockier head like a mal. His tail does not, and cannot, curl over his back as wolves tails aren't jointed in both direction. Timber is higher content timber wolf most likely mal crossed and he looks the part. But Tikaani is slightly lower, but knowing he is related to my timber keeps me aware that there is wolf in that boy even if his tail curls a bit more than his relatives. Genetics is a funny "science" that doesn't always play by the rules as we think it should.

In the summer we get kongs filled with frozen beef or chicken broth. Yum! Peanut butter was a favorite until we found one of us is allergic so now we get cheeses or oat meal (cooked and cooled) I love the ideas here too!

I completely agree that the misrepresentation needs to stop. I can't tell you how many red/white blue eyed siberians I have met that are "high content" wolfdog. Give me a break! Having a wolfdog isn't a status claim it's a HUGE responsibility. As a "mom" of 3 woofers I have to make sure my kiddos are above and beyond behaved when we make trecks out in public. These are not just pets, they are wonderful companions as long as you understand your responsibility. In the wrong hands, the same as any breed, is where the problem lies.
