It was such a beautiful day out I decided to snap some pictures of the boys after we came home from running errands downtown.

Ever since Ronan's last escape, this is how the kennel looks!

Those are great!! Love the play fighting shots:laughing: Lukka is going to have a blast when she finally gets to meet and play with your fella's:thumbs up
I like the one where OC has Ronan's nose in his mouth. Also the shot of OC alone (the one you like) is very nice

What a Husky fix! Thanks for sharing those. I love all the pics but the ones of them playing are my favorite.

3M, happy is an understatement for OC lol Thanks for the compliment! :D

Breeze, oh yes they are sure loving it! They are loving trying to drive me nuts with their extra energy too LOL I am itching to pull the scooter out but gotta hold off for a bit longer. If I pull it out too early OC will get bored of it before the racing season is over. But Ronan has been pulling tires and such and I have been putting their weighted backpacks on during walks. No winter coats yet, it is still a bit warm for that. After all their summer coats can keep them warm in -5C (i believe that is the temperature...could be colder)

Jim, thanks!

Claire, when I dumped the pictures on to my computer and saw that one (OC biting Ronan's nose) I burst out laughing! The abuse they give eachother...LOL

Luckypenny, I knew you had been waiting for one for a while LOL ;)

The last one is definately my favorite! I think huskies are born with the innate ability to pose like that. My great aunt had a huskie named chinook who did that in every non candid pic, "oh you're taking my picture? Head tilt!" Excellent photos!!!

Thanks again for the compliments! You all are too kind :D

Growler, Both Ronan and OC have a parti-eye

This is Ronan's (look at his right eye)

And this is OC's (also the right eye)

I'm in heaven now. :cloud9: :cloud9:

I still cannot get over how much Ronan looks like my Summer :rip: ....the exact same markings and she was a split eye too. :lovestruck:

Aww so cute :cloud9: thanks for the close ups :lovestruck: I was unsure about OC too sometimes its apparent from a distance sometimes it not <sigh> Sibes <sigh> :cloud9:

Breeze, it's called "stay" ;) LOL Around here, "stay" means hold the exact position you are in, kinda like "freeze" for human kids. That gives me time to zoom in, focus and snap a few and then I release them. Also my guys are silent watchers anyways. They spend a lot of time just sitting very still and quiet and watching. I dont need to give a command at all then I just grab the camera and snap away LOL

Chico, which one OC or Ronan?

Raibow, that's pretty cool!!!! Too bad you dont have any pictures of her :( I wonder if they were related at all because I found one of Ronan's sisters and she has markings strikingly similar to his too. Apparently these markings were very strong in the whole line...

Growler, hehe ya sometimes it is hard to tell. In the beginning I thought Ronan was bi-eyed until one day the ratio of brown to blue in his right eye changed enough that it became obvious he was parti-eyed

It is definately possible:

I have the pedigree from both my Sibes - (Nisku was Nikkis' mother) & have found pictures of ALOT of descendant dogs (from all over the world incl one I just saw who was born in 2003 & is in Taiwan) from one particular male - Nikkis' Grandfather (multiple US/CA Champion) from her Sire & they all have very very similar markings :cloud9:

So if you gals have the pedigrees you can always compare ;)

Gorgeous dogs, OC! :lovestruck:

Wish I could download all the pics. I wasn't able to download the one of the mouth to nose action (among others). :frustrated: Dratted dial-up! :mad:

I love it when dogs play like that, though! :cloud9: They look and sound all ferocious but they soft-mouth each other the whole time. :D

Growler, you never know, eh? I have OC's pedigree traced back a ways but I dont know anything on Ronan other than his parents. I could get his pedigree from CKC and start tracing from there but CKC always over-charges for everything >_<

Hazel, I often wonder how they dont hurt eachother! I mean OC and Ronan will grab eachother's scruff and shake like they would when trying to kill something or fighting another dog, yet its never a fight, they never yelp, and they never break the skin! And oddly enough they love doing it to eachother LOL The other wierd thing is they only do it to eachother, they dont do it to other dogs...

I wish I could remember where I put Summers :rip: papers. We got her from breeders in Prince George. They had just recently added the reds and I think their original came from the States. I still am amazed how much she looks like Ronan.

I love watching huskies "play" together too. I could watch for hours.....especially in the snow. :cloud9:
