The End of the Line

We had the best Siberian Huskies in the world for the past 15 years.  I think if I were to try find new dogs of the same breed, I would be constantly comparing them to Zoe and Scout.  And really, how could they ever measure up?

I do worry that in years to come, any time I see a person with a Husky, I'm going to ask to pet their dog, and then be unable to resist blubbering about the two we used to get to spend our days with.  Will it make me sad, and just make me yearn for them all over again?

Those girls broke the mold.  They were perfect.  I don't want to try to find replacements.  I think it's best for us all that we let Zoe and Scout be the end of the line as far as Huskies go.

So that is why...the search is ON.

You didn't ask me, but my advice is to speak with your vet about your new pooches. He/she will know you and your family, he/she knew Zoe and Scout, and he/she will know the local breeding community. These days it's easy to become paralyzed by the glut of information available, but you found perfectly lovely pets the old-fashioned way, and there's no reason you can't do it again.

By the way, you're going to love Aussies. They're fantastic dogs!
