Adopt a husky hike results from Deanna

Seppala and Denali

Hello Everyone: My husband and I went to the Adopt a Husky hike in Wadsworth IL on May 16 2009. There was a great doggie bag that was presented to the owners from all the sponsors which was very nice. It contained lots of treats, organic dog/cat oat grass, dog water, a portable dog water bowl, and Bil Jack food, just to name some of the items... Well Seppala and Denali had Siberian Brain overload when we got there. There were about 200 Siberian huskies with their owners and our dogs wanted to meet everyone!!!!! Once we were there for an hour they started to settel down and get use to all there brothers and sisters of their breed around them.

The Hike begins with a bit of pulling. Denali walks in front of me and I trip and fall top my knees (Great). 2 horses apear on the trail and Seppala pulls and bolts and pulls, she wants to play with these large creatures. (Great) Seppala is a 36 lb Husky but it took every bit of my strength to keep her restrained, didn't want the horses to kick her or rear back. HUSKY HIKE OVER!!!!!!! BRAIN OVERLOAD!!!!! We walked about 2 city blocks and the hike was over, no 3 mile hike around a beautiful lake. We went back, Seppala and Denali received their medeals even though they didn't complete the hike, we went back enjoyed some food and conversation with other husky owners, and went home after spending about 4 hours there. It was and is a good cause and was fun being with other husky owners. All in All we had a fun day....

We are still working with adopt a husky to find the right dog. We looked at many different dogs, but Luka is such a baby around male dogs, which was all they really had at the time. They got along, but didn't want to play with Luka. For the most part they sniffed each other and that was it. I'm really looking for a dog that she can play with. She did get along great with one younger male dog, but it was one of the foster families huskies. They are currently on the lookout for a younger dog that loves to play with other dogs, but won't be super dominant, which tends to scare Luka.

Haven't been on Zootoo for awhile. Hope you were able to adopt one of the Huskies from Adopt a husky!!!!!! So which one were you tring to adopt? We liked Samuel and Peter (The one who had his ears chewed off by flies( they were both cute, but we already have 2 huskies, seppala and Denali that before we would get a third we want to make sure we are ready. We also have 2 cats and a Congo african Gray parrot, so we already have a zoo. Shelters are great places to adopt from!!!!...
