Few comments I often heard in the park, in the restaurant or anywhere else where both my huskies are with me. We try to take them out often so that we can give enough exposure for a calmer dog we hope to achieve. It is still our main goal and priority. For a husky, personally I think we bring them out quite often till I am so used to the glaring eyes, and comments (mostly doesn’t make sense and some a little offensive). I have compiled a list of comments I overheard over the course of my life as a husky mama for 11 months. I am sure many husky-parents or big breed owners can relate. Teehee.
OMG is a wolf!
I love this the most personally. Cloudy do look like a mini wolf and his blue eyes, is kinda scary to some people.
Itu serigala ke atau anjing
Inside me, I would love to answer ‘Serigala’ (meaning wolf) but well, reality check. I only got a dog who somewhat have similarities of wolf-looking
Does it bite?
Usually, when people ask me does it bite, as a friendly gesture, I would say it doesn’t. But then recently I decided to answer no, but he can get very excited. Reason being is that one I feel absolutely offensive to be asked whether my dog bite. Of course it doesn’t. If it does, why would I bring it out. (But then again, there are owners who does bring they bite-y dog out. Two, I really didn’t want to be disturbed while I’m having my meals for you to come pet my dog. And three, my dog is still in training to be a calm and mature dog. Yes he may look calm, but he can get excited and jump on you.. (sadly I have to control my dog) But mostly I wouldn’t want you pet my dog and then get him excited.
Is that a husky? How can it survive here?
Yes, it is a husky and yes it can survive here. Otherwise, they wouldn’t be breeding here right?
Does it shed a lot?
This is a question that can probably get me going on and on and on…. LOL.
Don’t touch it, it will bite you (parents yelling to their kids running towards me and my dog’s direction)
Totally offensive! Please parents, teach your kid the right knowledge and not scare tactics. Firstly my dog isn’t running like your wild kids towards my direction. Secondly, my dog doesn’t bite. If you’re unsure, you can ask me. Though I’ll still feel a little less offensive, but I wouldn’t mind answering you as a friendly gesture. And thirdly, stop with your glaring disgusted eye staring my dog and me like we’re freaks.
How much does your dog cost?
Well, hmmm…. no comment. Ignore.
Mom, the dog is so scary.
Yes child, stay away from me. But if you dare approach, he may lick you to death.
People snapping pictures of my dog without my consent in the public.
Nothing I can do about. ….
People walked pass us in the restaurant and then scream out of a sudden.
Yes, we do get this quite often. Reason because when Cloudy and Terra will generally sit quietly under us, so many wouldn’t notice that there are dogs there. I don’t blame them, but their reaction of screaming is just too much. LOL.
Wahh, such a big dog, surely need very big space to run loh.
I do agree that they need to run. But sadly in KL, a working adult like me averagely cannot owned a landed property with enough sufficient land for them to run, yet we still so much wanted husky not one but two! We blame the over priced property in Malaysia. But that doesn’t mean they are neglected from being a happy and fulfilling dog. They needed their exercise, and we are fully aware of it, so we got them treadmill to run on. They need exposure of the outside world, so despite everything, we still try to accommodate to bring them out for meals and adventures.
My dog were asked to sit outside under the glaring sun
In a somewhat dog friendly place which we frequent mostly and have brought my dogs several times, we were suddenly asked to put our dogs on the grass under glaring sun for the reasons unknown (perhaps it happen to be a very crowded day). I literally exploded.
