You can take a husky out of the North, but you can’t take the North out of a husky. Regardless of the temperature the husky swirl and tail curl remains. The need to be close to those in the pack is strong. The love and caring of that pack is second nature to them. Even when it makes them uncomfortable.
I talk a lot about DNA and how these dogs have not changed as much as us. We can only scratch the surface of what is in their DNA memories. They remain undiluted and pure regardless of human interference.
These hard learned lessons they have ingrained into them is why they fail in most apartments and urban environments. You have to understand where your dog came from. They can adapt, but the North remains in their very souls, and it runs in their veins.
Whether it be pulling a sled that we admire, or their love for family, or need for adventure and exercise…they remain pure of heart and soul. That’s something we could learn from.
I accept them for what they are, and I wouldn’t try to change a thing. When you are one with the huskies you mold your life around them. For that is the best for both of us.
