If you are looking for a dog that you’d like to train to…fetch a ball & bring it back. A Siberian Husky is NOT for you. If you want a guard dog…the Husky is NOT for you. If you don’t want to brush bushels of three types of fur every day…Nope. Wrong dog for you. If you measure intelligence of an animal by his/her obedience, like fetching you your slippers…then you don’t need a dog, that’s what kids are for.
Dog breeds are proven to be intelligent by responding to its master’s commands…There are many working dogs with this important talent…the police dog, herding dogs, guide dogs, therapy dogs, cancer sniffing dogs. AND I HONOR EVERY SINGLE ONE for there life risking or life saving talents…
But let me tell you WHY Huskies are awesome (and useless in Alabama) & the smartest breed of them all. If you throw a ball & change the tone of your voice husky, he/she will “go get it” The Husky will watch the ball fly & land. Then turn & look at you and say, “WTF? You threw it, YOU go get it” & go to sleep. See? That is so true! I did throw it…i’ll have to go get it. Huskies know how to manipulate people to their whims(demands). They can be subtle about it or brazenly forward. Huskies don’t bark, they howl & they are shocked at your stupidity for not listening. “WHY the F*ck do YOU get to sit on the couch & I don’t?!” See? Most of the time, the husky believes He/She is Pack Leader & you are at the back of the sled because THEY.OWN.YOU. and they think YOU are dumb because you don’t understand their commands.
most dogs are aware of their station in life. You own them. You feed them. Water them and they are grateful. The cat & the Siberian Husky own YOU. Huskies are sarcastic, have a great sense of humor, mine (seen above) has an awesome Pee-Pee dance, They are masters of using guilt to get what want. They can be funny as hell, if you LISTEN to their bodies, their tails, their ears, their eyes, their howls…this is how they talk to you. Are YOU smart enough to own the smartest dog in whole wide world?
Are you strong (WORDPRESS I FUCKING HATE YOU i can write a WHOLE SENTENCE & WAIT FOR A MINUTE BEFORE IT APPEARS!!!) enough to pull a few dog hairs out of your food & drink as though its completely natural? Do you mind buying a new vacuum every two years? Do you mind brushing a husky everydamnday? I tell myself its my daily exercise. Huskies are vain & want everyone to worship their beauty, until you have, then they’ll leave you…and as they do, you’ll feel like you’ve let them down in someway. And then you feel like shit. Huskies don’t eat a lot of food, but sleep as much as a cat…conserving its energy to make you run, dammit. thus they train you. You must talk to your dog in a normal tone, never baby talk…and they will talk back. are you smart enough to listen?
the photos above. Nala KNEW i wanted to talk her picture. But i knew she wanted recompense for some (*imagined) slight…this is what her ears told me, do you see she will not even use energy to lift them? I am unworthy. Her ears are hanging like wet socks…then she yawned in my face. I was going to give up, but then, lucky me, Nala saw an airplane overhead, (she was trying to see what type it was) & i snapped the picture.
*Now that i think back to that morning. I feed her outside & we both noticed her water bowl had iced over during the night. Still she made the attempt to (pathetically) lick it. So i used the heal of my shoe, to break apart the thin ice, that had formed over the water. She looked at me then and said, “WTF? I don’t want your damn shoe in my water” to which i understood & responded, “But now you can drink it.” she glared, then took a wee delicate drink, I should have known then that i would be punished for it later.
