Re: Tamrakar Fred and Ginny

Just another note - saying she looks like a husky wasn't the thing that offended me (it's true) because those people didn't add how they don't like the way she looks, didn't question her papers etc.

Re: Tamrakar Fred and Ginny

te color doesn't bother me, it's the markings I don't like Well that's ok seeing as it is not your dog - why care? You are the only one who has said anything rude about Tamrakar Fred and Ginny. Would you tell someone on the street 'I don't like the way your dog looks?' How can an opinion be rude :?...

Re: Tamrakar Fred and Ginny

Yes I would agree - I think it's her 'eyebrows' mostly that make her look like a husky She has changed in the last month and instead of getting 'is that a husky?' i've had 2 people that have said 'is that a wolf hybrid' but most are asking if she is a husky mix or gsd/husky mix.

As this was a thread regarding Pepper and Nel's coat colour I just thought I would give an update on Pepper's change in colour. This photo was taken about a month ago so even then it has changed since.

Re: Nails--How short is too short

black nails require a flash light held from underneath in order to see. I've never had this work, the black nails are opaque, so this doesn't work. It worked on Boxer (the pug) when I shined his dark nails long ago with a small yellow flashlight. The yellow lights went right through the black nails...

Re: New outcrosses?

Yes it is a 10 year old dog its all fur - way too much for a tamaskan! Which is why I wonder if a cross breed would work. I don't know much about the other Finnish breeds and I understnad outside of Finland they aren't as common. I understand Finnish lapphunds are easily trained and family pets. his...

Re: New outcrosses?

That's also another reason for my Finnish Lapphund cross suggestion as I believe the dog in the photo I attached was bigger than they normally are. Seeing as the tamaskan roots go back to Finland I thought maybe possible outcrosses could include some of the Finnish breeds (including huskies as someo...

Not sure if this has already been suggested but what about some of the other Finnish breeds? This is my cousin's Finnish Lapphund. Although he is probably too fluffy he still has the mask, his sister is a red colour so they come in other colours. He also has small ears. However he does have a curly ...

Shedding - Tamaskans vs german shepherds (and other breeds)

I was wondering just out of interest, those of you with german shepherds and tamaskans - which do you find sheds the most? I've heard that german shepherds shed a lot throughout the year but is it really that much more than the tamaskans during their seasonal shedding?

Know it alls

Does anyone else have other dog owners (usually those who you have never met before) try and tell you about your dog and what it needs? I think maybe it is because Pepper looks a lot like a husky but I get lots of people telling me how much excercise my 'husky' needs and although she doesn't pull on...
