13 Things All Husky Owners Must Never Forget.
1.Don’t be upset when I jump for joy when you come through the door.
I only live for twelve to fourteen years. You are what makes that time enjoyable. It’s hard on me when you go away.
2.Give me time to understand what you want from me.
I don’t always get it right on the first try, but I promise I’m trying as hard as I can.
3.Give me your trust.
Just like I trust you, I need you to trust me, too.
4.Don’t be angry with me for too long.
And please don’t lock me up to punish me. You have your friends and family to keep you happy and entertained. I just have you.
5.Take me inside when the weather gets bad.
The backyard doesn’t have air conditioning or a heater. You don’t have to let me on the couch, but a small part of the kitchen is much better than sleeping in the snow.
6.Talk to me.
Sure, we don’t speak the same language, but the sound of your voice brightens my whole day.
7.Comfort me when I’m scared.
You know a lot more about loud noises, strange people, and new places than I do. I need to know that you’ll protect me from them. I always feel safer when I’m with you.
8.Remember that I’ll never forget how you treat me.
Teach me that humans are made of love, not pain. And don’t ever let me forget it.
9. Come outside with me.
The sights, sounds, and scents of nature are some of my greatest pleasures in life. I don’t care if we play, go for a walk, or just sit under a tree together — I want you to experience them with me.
10.Let me make new friends.
Introduce me to other dogs, cats, or even bigger animals. We might now get along in the end, but having some more friends that look and smell like me makes my life that much brighter.
11.Understand when I need my alone time.
I love you more than anything, but even though it’s rare, I don’t always want to play or cuddle. Don’t be sad if I’d rather sleep on the cold tile floor instead of in your bed on hot summer nights, and be understanding if I don’t want to play as much as the years go on.
12.Show me your world.
The house and yard might be the only places I ever see unless you let me come with you. A trip to the pet store, the park, or even just a ride in the car is exhilarating for me. I can’t wait to see what you want to show me.
13. Let me get dirty once in a while.
Your world is inside, but I thrive outdoors. Sometimes I find a lot of mud or a lake that smells like all of its fishy inhabitants. I understand if you don’t want to wash all that stuff off every day, but as long as it’s safe, let me go back to my wild roots every now and then.
