Meet my husky girls Leica (laiy•kah) and Inara (ih•nar•ah), both of whom I rescued in 2011.

Beautiful pups, and great photos!

Gorgeous pups! I love the icy blue eyes. The only thing holding me back from getting a husky is the shedding. :(

Yeah... I, being a bit of a neat freak, was also apprehensive about the shedding during the rescue process of our first, Inara (black and white one). However, the ever-fluffy love, appreciation, companionship, unconditional joy, entertainment and hilarity you get from a Husky far outweighs any amount of hair they may (will?) shed upon you and every inch of your home. They are also a wonderful kickstart to creating or maintaining an active lifestyle. The life you save and that you're able to share and enjoy is priceless. They, in turn, ended up saving me in a way.

Consequently, I bought two Dysons (big upright and lithium cordless) and it became very manageable, and I quickly forgot about it and got over it. Don't let an inconvenience or the fear/worry of the unfamiliar stop you from potentially changing your life. :)

I love husky dogs... If I ever get a dog, it will be one of those.  :)

But what climate do they have to be in? I can imagine they don't really thrive in hot summers.

Well, they can exist in any climate, really. I live in Arkansas where summers can get terribly hot. You just have to adjust your schedule and have realistic expectations of what can and can't happen outdoors during those days. We obviously don't go out much on those days, apart from pee breaks and the like. We make up for it the rest of the year by romping around outside as much as possible =)
