9 Signs You're A Siberian Husky Owner

9 Signs You're A Siberian Husky Owner

While all dogs are awesome, huskies are a quirky and unique breed who make your worst days better.

Siberian huskies are known for their wolf-like appearance and gorgeous eyes, as well as for being extremely intelligent, stubborn, and cute as heck. Being blessed with my not-so-little-anymore ball of fur nine months ago made my life 6,701,929,767 times better. I know that all husky parents can relate to loving their unique fur baby, quirks and all.

1. Hair, hair everywhere.

You cannot walk out of the house on any day and not have hair all over your clothes. There's hair underneath any piece of furniture. And the sad part is, you can brush your pup three times a day and still find hair everywhere.

2. You always have someone to talk to.

Huskies don't bark, they talk. If you live alone, you probably have more conversations with your dog than anything, and they will not hesitate to let you know if they do not like something.

3. The "looks"

Just like we as people have certain "looks," you've seen them all from your pup

- The "I'm not doing that," look

- The "Oh sh*t, I'm in trouble," look

- The "I am a puppers, and I am happy," look (this one's my favorite because I still see my little seven-week old baby in those eyes.)

- The "Derp," look

4. They are mischievous, sneaky, and fast.

You've got to be careful of how long the door stays open because before you know it, they'll squeeze around you and you'll be running a marathon for blocks trying to catch them. If you don't leave your doors wide open, they're probably plotting how to get that tasty snack off the counter once you turn your back.

5. One word: zoomies

From one room to another, off the couch and onto the bed, there is no stopping their zoomies. Do not get in their way unless you're looking to get taken out.

6. They are good "protectors."

Although they won't be the one to bark and attack if a stranger ever broke into your home while you're sleeping, I can tell you from experience that when I'm on a walk with my husky, no one messes with me. In fact, I've had many people freak out when Ellis pulls trying to get closer to them and attack them with kisses, because non-dog people (yes, those exist) think he must be a wolf, when he really just wants some lovings.

7. Your husky gets more compliments than you.

More likely than not, someone is complimenting your dog before you. And when they say, "Your dog is so pretty," you are thinking about every shoe, piece of furniture, toy, etc. that has been destroyed. He's lucky he's a pretty dog!

8. The need for exercise/playtime is real.

Whether it's sunny and 75, raining like cats and dogs, or even if you're snowed in, your husky wants to be active. You can walk four miles, and it still not be enough sometimes!

9. You have the best friend a person could ever need.

While huskies are one of the quirkier breeds, you always find yourself smiling when you come home to the unconditional love your husky is ready to give you. From the kisses, to the conversations, to the torn up shoes, and endless amount of destroyed toys, you wouldn't want to do life without your pup by your side.

All-in-all there is no breed better to own than a Siberian Husky. While all dogs are awesome, huskies are a quirky and unique breed who make your worst days better.

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.


Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.

An Open Apology Letter To Mother Nature For Destroying The Earth

You've provided so much for us, and all we've given in return is a big fat middle finger.


Dear Mother Nature,

Thank you for rolling jade hills and deep sapphire oceans. Thank you for the sun that keeps us warm in the daytime and for the moon that lights our way in the nighttime. For daily sunsets streaked with purple, pink, and orange. For the lush fruits, vegetables, and grains that fuel and nourish our bodies. For blessing us with natural wonders like Niagara Falls, the Grand Canyon, and the Great Barrier Reef.

Thank you for trusting us with the land you created…and I'm so sorry we're letting you down.

I'm sorry that you provided a plethora of beautiful, natural phenomena that work in harmony to keep us alive and that in return, we gave you a big fat middle finger. Day by day, minute by minute, we litter the ground and the oceans with garbage and drill into the ground with thousands of chemicals.

We kill other animals for sport to the point of extinction. We uproot the Earth's resources at a rate so alarming, you can barely keep up. We're gradually destroying the ozone layer, which you made to protect us, for the sake of burgers and Lexus.

You've created a wondrous, prosperous planet just for us to come along and tear it apart piece by piece.

You're attempting to give us warning signs: dramatic weather and climate changes, rising water levels, and intense natural disasters. We see them and fully understand our role in the matter, but we haven't done enough thus far to combat our wrongdoings. I know it feels horrible to be ignored, and I'm sorry we're ignoring your pleas for help.

My stomach drops when I think about how future generations won't be able to enjoy the everyday beauties of the world as we do. How people's homes and lives are destroyed yearly, by the thousands, as a result of increasingly devastating natural disasters. How entire species have been wiped out due to our selfishness. As I take in the majesty of what is left of our world, this is my plea for my fellow men and women to treat it better and make you proud.
