    Siberian Huskies.....so elegant looking, love those dogs so much! Wish I could get them here in Florida, but it would be torture for them to live in such a hot climate.

    I live in Florida and they love it. During the summer they stay in during the day except 10 minutes here and there to relieve themselves but during the morning and evening they love being outside and love the pool even more. We have a kiddie pool for the dogs in the back yard and they are always whining to go out and play in it. November through April is perfect for them. They do not get the heavy coats that they get in other places and they actually get use to the climate here. The older husky hates when it is below 70 and she will crawl under blankets inside. If it is below 50, she will do her thing quickly outside and try to go back in lol. We call her a "Floridian Husky" because she does not like the cold. there are a few Siberian Huskies and Malamutes in our neighborhood. :)

    Too many enemies, someone may threaten them or more likely Norrington would rabbitnap them and hold them for ransom.

    I know I don't play Chessy, but I can't pass up a chance to show off my furbaby :)

    This is Fiore, and her brother Bear, at only a few days old. Look at the bitty little ears! And the itty bitty feet! *squees*

    [​IMG]


    And this was Fiore back in February at a few months shy of a year old. Though these days she's more commonly known as 'Fi' or 'Flea'.

    The biggest dog would not come out for cheese. She DID fight her way out when I rattled her favorite toy... the flashlight. Weird dog.

    I have had black, choc. labs, golden retriever Brittany spaniel mix, irish wolfhound, a puny terripoo and some cats, gerbils, hamsters, tropical fish, pet birds and even had flocks of chickens and a pet goat once when we lived up in Wisconsin. They all lived to ripe old ages, most all of them lived way beyond 10-14 yrs. of age.
    We got nearly all our pets as lost foundlings, kept trying to find the owners, no luck, so in the end they ended kept and all ours. But shelties are the yappiest canines we have ever owned and they keep trying to herd us. lol I am not even allowed to leave the house and they have to bark their shrilled highpitched discontent at me, for going shopping or whatevers. lol

    On the Left we have "The Little Man" and on the Right, Mr. Squeeks. For those of you looking for a small pet for a child, and don't have the room or don't want to struggle through the needs of a puppy give rats a try they are less likely to bite than guinea pigs, hamsters, or gerbils and are large enough for a kid to actually handle a bit. Doesn't hurt they are pretty smart as well and can learn their names, and many tricks.

    :) Be sure to look up the lifespan of any pet rodents. lol When our twins graduated from High School 1992 and each went into the US Navy, baby girl was missing her siblings and wanted a stupid pet snake. I rejected that idea no pet snakes in my house. So I looked up the life span of cute gerbils. Every book said that gerbils lifespan was about 3 yrs. OK I told her you can get some cutsey pet gerbils to fill the void of you missing your siblings and they will croak when you graduate high school in 1995, so that *I* will not have be tending to your rodents after you leave home for college.

    Them furry cute lil smart arse suckers were LAUGHING AT ME, thru the year 2000 and they kept going forth and multiplying too !! :) Luckily being the black and white gerbils any overdose I got quickly sold out to the local pet store wanting to buy them newbies off of me. But I was feeding and cage cleaning and playing with them older pet cute gerbils till that last one croaked in 2005 ! LOL We were lucky none of them bit, but yeh hamsters we once had were violent then even bit each other. :( Never know with any rodents what ya might get we lucked out on the gerbils but they lived way way longer than they were supposed to ! :) Once upon a time we had 2 dwarf dutch bunnie rabbits too.

    Rats rarely live beyond 3, though on a rare occasion you'll get one. It's all the same to me, these guys are a ton of fun.

    The someone on Staff asked me how big they get so I had to take a new photo..

    If you use Chrome and right click where the image should be and choose open image in new tab, it will take you to a Google search for roadkill and shows a dead squirrel in the road.
