Our Silver lining

Silver at 7 weeks old

I have always had a fondness for Huskies.  I didn't know very much about them, but loved their wolf-like features.  When Daddy saw the ad for Lab/Husky puppies, we were thinking Silver would be more Husky looking and were rather surprised when she looked like a Black Lab.  Since we were both interested in more of the Husky features, we wanted to breed her with a Husky.  Well, that's where Brut came in and then we had a litter of ten Husky-looking puppies. 

We found that we were hooked.  Their character, wit, and their playful ways were just what we needed.  This all started with Silver and a Husky hope that I don't remember Daddy or I ever speaking of before, she just fell in our lap.  In fact I don't think we ever discussed the breed of dog we wanted or were thinking of, until Daddy saw that ad and everything seemed to fall in place.

Personally, I have always wanted a Bloodhound or a Great Dane, while my husband mentioned later that he was interested in a Newfoundland or a St. Bernard.  Funny how we never mentioned either of these things before to each other.  I remember when he came bursting through the door and told me of the ad he saw for puppies.  We jumped in the car and raced out there, somehow knowing this was just the dog we were looking for.  I remember how we looked to each other with slight disappointment as the entire litter looked like Black Labs and taking a moment with our decision.  Daddy saw something about the little one, staying behind all her brothers and sisters who wasn't begging for our attention.  When he picked her up, we looked at each other and smiled, we knew she was the one.

And so began our journey with Huskies.  Having no idea what we were getting into, we fell in love with their beautiful and conniving ways.  We think it is simply amazing how we never planned for anything and got everything we needed and then some.  24 Paws of Love.

Hard as it may be to believe, but the
momster had no desire to have a husky - it was all Dad who wanted an all-white blue-eyed girl, hence Dakota. And now it is the Momster who is totally hooked. We really do have a lot of those charming and winning ways:)

What a love story! It is pretty funny - and great - how things turn out. I have always loved German Shepherds. Growing up, I befriended a retired NYPD "officer" dog (who was a watch dog for a neighborhood business). When the company closed, they gave me the dog, which I in turn told my parents "followed me home." Later on, we always had a GS mix. My last baby was a GS/Akita mix. My daughter has always wanted a Husky. When she was older, we went to a breeder and baby Harley came home with us. I was hooked. Four more later (who although those 4 came from a different breeder, due to their sad, dirty conditions, we really felt like we rescued them, that's how we brought 3 pups home at one time!) and we became the FiveSibes! PS - Your Blaze looks alot like our Bandit, just with floppy ears! So cute!

Huskies make amazing pets. My dog growing up was a pure-bred Siberian and she was the easiest dog to fall in love with. She lived to the old age of 17 and I still miss her five years later.

One day I may get another one. But I'd need to build a really high fence first. If there was one thing Nikita was good at, it was escaping.

Thanks for sharing your story!

I love your story of Silver... Our first dogs were very unplanned but, like you, we fell in love with dogs. The rest is history.
