Life with a Siberian Husky



I really had no idea what I was getting intowhen I decided to get a Siberian Husky for a
pet. Don't get me wrong: Iwouldn't trade him for anything and I love him dearly, but this
animal has hisown plan - his own agenda. The last three years of my life have been
anawakening to the downright mischievous nature of these dogs.




I've met other Husky owners and they all have the same stories of their dogs running away
and possessing the trademark Husky stamina. They also tell of the little idiosyncrasies,
such as their dogs "talking" and the way Huskies know when you're speaking about them when
they are in the room. All of these owners are amazed at the Houdini-like capabilities
these dogs have to help them escape any enclosure.




I have a few entertaining stories of my own about my Husky, Khayman. First of all, he is
the dog that everyone loves and no one wants to own. I can barely get anyone to watch him
for more than ten minutes. It's not that Khayman is a mean animal--he isn't--he is just
clever. Part of the reason everyone likes him is because of his looks, but mostly he's got
a lot of personality. His bandit mask and two different colored eyes (blue and brown) get
him attention, pats on the head, dog biscuits at the gas station, and royal treatment
whenever anyone finds him on his escapades (which, mind you, have been many). His first
escapades didn't take him far, mostly running down the street a few blocks after bum
rushing the door. That routine started at four or five months of age. It rapidly
progressed as he grew larger, gained strength, and acquired confidence (read attitude).




When I moved to Bend, Khayman was eight months old and starting to really grow up, but
also starting to get really clever. The first night we were in Bend, he found the weak
board in the fence, escaped, went up the street to the horses and just sat there - barking
at them. In Central Oregon, that kind of behavior gets clever dogs in trouble. So, I
picked him up at the dog jail, sans the $250 fine, went home, and fixed ALL the boards in
the fence.

  • The trial
    The trial THE TRIAL by Franz Kafka read by Geoffrey Howard This disturbing and vastly influential novel has been interpreted on many levels of structure and symbol; but most commentators agree that the book explores the themes of guilt, anxiety, and moral impotency in the face of some ambiguous force. Joseph K. is an employee in a bank, a man without particular qualities or abilities. He could be anyone, and in some ways he is everyone. His inconsequence makes doubly strange his “arrest” by the

    cat vs dog The Cat Versus The Dog There comes a time in most everyone’s life when he or she decides to buy a pet. Some people go for the unusual and choose a bird, snake, or rodent. Most people, however, decide on the more common four-legged creatures like a dog or cat. Dogs and cats are very different animals and they have different attitudes, needs, and habits. Understanding these differences can help in the process of choosing between them. For unwavering love and loyalty, not to mention prot
  • CATS
    CATS Many people today have pets for pleasure and companionship. Nearly any animal can be a pet, such as hamsters, rabbits, birds, fish, frogs, horses, and even cats and dogs. Besides being a loving companion, pets serve many other purposes as in protecting homes, destroying vermin, and providing a means of transportation. The elderly and the childless couples can rely on a pet as an emotional outlet. In addition, pets can be kept for their beauty, rarity, or for the beautiful sounds that birds

  • Domestication of the Dog
    Domestication of the Dog Today’s dogs serve as a number of different tools. We train dogs to see for the blind, we train them to sniff for drugs, we train them to save people’s lives, and we train them to be our faithful companions. There is no doubt that the dog has a wide variety of skills and jobs. We selectively breed the dog to gain the certain attributes we are seeking, and we know which dogs will perform the best at what we want them to do. The question is how long ago, and why did the do
  • Selecting a Pure Breed
    Selecting a Pure Breed All dogs, impure as well as pure-bred, and several wild cousins such as wolves and foxes, are one family. Each breed was created by human beings, using selective breeding to get desired qualities. The result is an almost unbelievable diversity of purebred dogs that will, when bred to others of their breed, produce their own kind. A "breed standard" is a written description of a given breed. This description uses words to define what a breed should look like. A standard exi
