I keep my hot dogs refrigerated too
Now I am sad for snow dogs living in hot climates.
Husky still wants to go back to Antarctica
He is in a house where the owner is wearing a coat (or the very least a long sleeve shirt), he isnt in a hot climate. This is most likely a good temperature home. Huskies just pick the coldest spot even if the rest of the house is a good temp. The dog isnt panting. This dog is, at the very worse, in a average temperature (which huskies could withstand).
They love the cold. My two American Akitas are the same way; they go bat shit crazy when the snow first falls.
this is a husky thing it seems haha http://reddit.com/sub/rarepuppers/comments/6z31wb/we_put_hotdogs_in_fridge_k/
You're thinking penguins. Huskies frolic in the arctic.
Most huskies are kept in a way hotter climate than they are designed for. I'd imagine being a cold weather animal living in Texas in the Summer probably sucks.
Idk why he looks so sad
Lots of husky owners in Phoenix...always struck me as sad.
Yes most likely. I am just sad cuz I remembered there is bad husky owners out there.
So much of this is incorrect i dont even know where to start.
Huskies blow their undercoat twice a year (like any other double coat dog) when the seasons change. When it gets warm they blow their undercoat to help keep them cool in the warm weather. I know this because every spring mine does this, and handles the warm summer weather just fine.
Huskies have health problems just like any other dog breed does. All northern bred working dogs are prone to hip dysplasia, it comes from years of being bred to run and having strong hind legs. While they have a predisposition to it, they dont all suffer from it, However these problems dont occur until their much much older. In fact, the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals currently has the Siberian Husky ranked 155th out of a possible 160 breeds at risk for hip dysplasia, with only two percent of tested Siberian Huskies showing dysplasia. Eye problems are normally because the husky eyes are unique to canines. This is not due to selective breeding, but natural evolution, as its believed that the colored eyes helped them with seeing in the snow better, but the trade off is colored corneas come with more of a risk for genetic defects, like human eyes do.
Its also important to note that siberian huskies are a very old breed of canine dating back nearly 4,000 years are, unlike other breeds, are considered close to a natural breed when compared to other breeds like bulldogs, pits, pugs, or retrievers.
I own a husky, i did my research for years on the breed before getting one, I work with a husky foster house, I know what Im talking about. Stop treating owners like their breeding pugs who are more of an example of unnatural breeding then breeding huskies, who are as close to a natural, real dog breed as you can get.
Compairing Huskies to polar bears is a fucking stupid and inaccurate comparison. What do you think huskies did in the wild during summer months when the Chuhcki people didnt need them for sleds, die out cause it was hot? No, they roamed free and survived in the summer months just fine and adapted to the weather.
i am a dog hoo lyke de col
am jes a pup - not vewy ol
my hooman took out botum bin
he open door, I cwime rite in
my favwit place iz dis! its ware
i gets tu breeve de fridgid ayre
I guess my Golden isn't the same :( when I took her outside to play in the snow, she started shivering like crazy so I had to take her in
I failed zoo oligey and grmar class
Yes. I live in Egypt and there are many people who own huskies, mainly for their looks and to show off. Bare in mind the temperature here in summer can go up to 50 C. Fuck these people.
Have a cat that used to always do this until one day he was in there for half an hour before he started freaking out and we realized what the hell was going on. Jumped on the bottom shelf when we were taking out stuff to make for dinner. Didn't see him sneak in and them we heard him banging around.
My Golden loved snow. After playing in it, she'd spend half an hour chewing ice balls out of her toes.
As a husky owner, that face is common. It is a face they often make when in that specific position. It isnt the temperature. I live in a place where it gets really cold in the winter. This is the face they make when laying down and looking at you, they have about 3 faces: happy, annoyed, and nuetral. Those faces dont correspond to the emotion. Nuetral looks sad.
I dont think this dog is too hot. He isnt panting and the face for looking hot is happy. He probably got introduced the the fridge and is just seeking the coldest place. Doesnt have to be because he is warm, he just prefers the coldest place.
Also that is a "why are you looking at me Did i do something wrong" look.
And enraged at the cunts that get them as fashion accessories.
My golden loved to have snow thrown on her. When we would shovel, she would run into the path of the snow we threw and just jump into it midair. Then we learned, and we'd just wait for her to be ready, then throw it right on her. Neighbors and friends thought we were being abusive on more than one occasion before they realized the puppy loved it hahaha
*I C E B O Y E *
It's very funny to me that 72 degrees is a freezing temperature to you.
I'd say you guys are making a lot of assumptions based on a gif that literally nobody knows anything about the context
Most dogs aren't built for 120 degree weather.
From personal experience, I can say I feel bad for any heavy coated dog in hot climates.
When I was a kid, I used to have a Chow/Leonberger mix () and lived in Arkansas. We didn't intentionally get him, he was just dumped on the farm we lived near and we took him in. But needless to say, that dog did not like summer. He would lay on the AC vents or put his nose right up to them any time it was above 80.
My family ended up moving us to the Northeast a few years later and man, that dog was so happy. He would stand outside in -20 weather, facing into the north wind and just pant up a storm. That dog fucking loved the cold.
I know someone who's cat used to do this with their clothes dryer, only they didn't hear anything after he snuck in.
happened to my grandma. Their son drew a picture of a ct in a dryer that said "check for cats" and they had that picture above their dryer for 30+ years afterward
Most living beings aren't.
Sister's dachshund was like that, too. He would bark and whine if you didn't throw the snow on him. Then he'd leap into the snow as you threw it, and wriggle out looking all happy and wait for the next shovelful.
You are 100% making an assumption based on not enough evidence. Both of my cats go into my fridge all the time. It's not because it's cold, it's because it's an area usually locked off to them, and they're curious. That's it.
With a Husky you have the added effect that they like the cold. No matter the temperature of the house, the refrigerator will be colder, right? That's the point of the fridge, otherwise, humans wouldn't need fridges! So the Husky sees a new "coldest area of the house" and fucking of course they'll go into it. That's their thing. FFS Reddit. Think before you type.
This dog isn't panting or showing any signs of distress. You just completely and incorrectly arm-chair analyzed this dog, which is in a gif, for all of 15 seconds. This dog doesn't "look sad", because you can't just anthropomorphize facial features, dogs don't have facial muscles like humans do. You have to go by vocalizations (not in this GIF), tail wagging, panting, etc. None of that in this GIF shows that this dog is anything but content. But you got 75+ upvotes so I imagine you're feeling pretty good about that.
You know their coats also protects from heat.
If its hotter on the outside, insulation is going to keep you cool. In certain climates it is recommended to wear lots of (white) clothing to block out the sun and keep you cool.
What if the dog in this gif was a rescue from some other asshole who brought the dog into an unsuitable climate.
My first gilding was for saying "I keep my corn dogs in the freezer too" in reference to a husky hanging out in a freezer. So, I'mma gonna pay it forward today.
Is it a husky thing though? I live in a tropical climate and the amount of people who import huskies as a status symbol are astounding. Then they complain when they seem to be suffering, if they complain at all.
My golden's loved water and snow. I would have to force them to come in after a while. here Does yours like water? I miss mine. They passed a year ago after 14 years. Still not ready to adopt financially and emotionally. Give yours a hug.
Oh man I know. Definitely not the climate. The only place in Arizona we should see a husky is Flagstaff or somewhere north.
How in zeus's festering bunions would a thick coat cool an animal that has evolved to survive the extremes of colds temperatures?
It doesn't cool them, and it's not the undercoat that does it. It's the guard hairs (The longer, coarse hairs that make up the "outercoat") and it reflects sun, thus deflecting heat.
I live in Minnesota, but my Husky will absolutely lay out on the deck and "sunbathe" for hours on end in the summer. Whether it's 80 degrees and cloudy or 100 and blisteringly sunny, she'll be out there just soaking it in.
insert GallowBoob hate
jk i love you
How in zeus's festering bunions would a thick coat cool an animal that has evolved to survive the extremes of colds temperatures? It is like bringing a polar bear to Arizona desert temperatures and claiming it's undercoat will cool it.
Probably by a similar principle that the insulation in your house helps it stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Or is that bullshit polar bear magic too?
How the hell did I understand all the of this while reading through it normally?!
C O O L P U P P E R
Yeap it is sometimes baffling seeing people buying Siberian huskys in Arizona and other hot areas. Those dogs are not built for 120 degree weather... period. That crap about their thick undercoat cooling them is utter nonsense designed to justify that bullshit.
It is sickening seeing people breed those dogs creating a whole myriad of genetic problems in these dogs. These huskys have so many problems from eye problems, bronchitis, gastric ulcers,retinal atrophy to hip dysplasia. The longer people continue breeding them irresponsibly and maintaining the aesthetics only of this dog the worse the lineage gets.
These days you constantly hear that the undercoat cools it. How in zeus's festering bunions would a thick coat cool an animal that has evolved to survive the extremes of colds temperatures? It is like bringing a polar bear to Arizona desert temperatures and claiming it's undercoat will cool it.
Well it was a chihuahua. They hate everything.
Jesus christ no it's not lol that's just a tired puppy. Maybe he's kept in too warm of a climate, maybe he isn't but in this case he's in the house. It looks like the owner is wearing a jacket for fucks sake.
On the other side of this I hate a yorkie Chihuahua mix in Alaska growing up. Poor thing had coats and boots and still hated life half the year.
Yeah, that's a face of "this tiny area is the only place in this house with a temperature I feel comfortable at".
As a human I am an all seasons creature and even I have done this same thing during hot summers as a kid. I remember sleeping on the kitchen floor too because it wasn't carpeted and therefore was slightly cooler.
That's one crisp doggo.
For real, 72 is the warmest I️ let my house get
Such is the way of Reddit
Obviously the dog is hot as shit if it's running into a fridge. I don't think that husky is in a cool enough environment for them :/
Seriously, has this guy never seen a husky? Some of them (and similar breeds) could pass for wolves.
They do a lot better than you'd expect, it's just not cheap keeping your house cold as shit.
My husky sunbathes in some hotter temps
"Have to on" is such a Singaporean thing to say.
This is so sad.
My ex's mother used to make her husky come in to the heated nearly 80 degree house any time it got below 60 outside because she was convinced the dog would get too cold. All the poor dog wanted was some chill, but she'd go out and drag it in by the collar. Pissed off to no end, and she didn't seem to care when everyone told her the dog likes the cold.
The husky ended up losing it one day and killed their chihuahua so they had it put down.
I'm talking about my childhood golden so sadly she's no longer with us. Yes, she loved the water so much and would even 'rescue' us while we were swimming and tow us back to shore. We never trained her to do it either, it was so awesome!
No doggos, but I'll hug my kitties for you!
Huskies are "designed" for many different climates, it gets over 30c in Siberia during the summer, doesn't mean climbing into fridges means they shouldn't be there.
Lmao. I didn't catch that. If my house is at 70 I'm like "why the fuck is it so hot in here?" My cousins from FL come to MN for Xmas. Its funny watching them put on 3 layers under a freaking parka with thick ass gloves when it's like 15F. We all go outside with sweatshirts and they're still shivering.
F R O Z E N B O Y E
Thats because huskies were bred directly from wolves. Their independent nature, personality quirks, looks, intelligence, and their ability to howl and talk instead of bark comes from this. They are one of the few breeds where you are as close to owning a wolf without any of the aggressive traits as you can get.
Most people that own "wolfdogs", such as Loki the Wolfdog for example, are typically almost always mixed with husky for this reason.
only humans would be stupid enough to say "LOOK, THE DESERT, LET'S LIVE THERE" and smart enough to actually manage to make it work.
Sorry but all boobs are beautiful
I'm not doing this right am I?
We were in a camp around 8500 feet two weeks ago, and we woke up to three inches of snow on the ground. My friends Husky was laying under the trailer for shade, in pile of snow, taking a nap.
Ppl who buy huskies without having backyard, any space they could let them out are worst.
Old English Sheepdog (4 of them) all did the same. Dogs are hilarious.
Huskies seek out the coolest place they can find, even if they're not hot. If it's 50°(F) in your house, but your fridge is 40°, they'll still go to the fridge.
Honestly huskies do just fine in warmer climates. They do need shade and plenty of water (about 10 ounces of water per 10 pounds per day), but you can find huskies comfortably living in places like South Africa. GRANTED, if you live in an exceptionally hot place, you'll have to help the dog beat the heat. Something like a kiddy pool in a shaded area. However, taking a husky into a hot climate is not abuse, or necessarily bad for the dog. It's taking it into the climate, then leaving it to itself that's bad.
I came home one day and found my tabby locked in a linen closet and called up my SO and wanted to chew her out but fortunately she didn't answer the phone. I hung up and realized he cat did it to himself being a sneaky bastard but we talked about it that night and she was just as upset as I was and felt guilty about it. That was a linen closet. I love animals and if I ever found my cats in the dryer I'd be devastated.
Please do a little homework before spouting off nonsense and spreading misinformation. I won't go through your post bit by bit, u/rdp3186 pretty much covered it.
It just concerns me when someone who is "speaking from the gut" on things gets everything wrong but seems to have the confidence and support (upvotes) of someone who actually DOES know what they are talking about. This is how falsehoods spreads.
Aw, nice happy end
He knows he is doing something wrong, but is doing anymay
And you probably think 90 is hot
What are you talking about? I have no real info about that undercoat cooling thing, but you're totally wrong about their health issues. Eye problems are the only genetic disorder Siberian Huskies suffer from. Huskies are one of the least likely large dogs to suffer from hip dysplasia and everything else you listed only occurs in actual working dogs.
And I think there should be a drawer there, so the person is probably encouraging the doggo to do that.
You should never own a husky unless you like to keep your house really cold (under 70)
Alaska summers go up to 80-90. They can handle some heat temporarily.
Schnoodleboye is a master of his craft! (Seriously, look at his post history haha. Very talented)
Yeah in Singapore husky owners have to turn on the air conditioners for the entire day for their huskies...
edit: turn on
tHeN mY cOmMeNt StIlL ApPLIeS
I mean, I wear longsleeve shirts indoors in south florida sometimes because I keep my air conditioning on freezing temperatures (around 72F), so it's not a sign of anything really.
He knows he cannot stay
Yeap spot on. 72 is warm, 90 is hell.
I used to babysit for a family that had 2 cats. I grabbed a bunch of stuff to make the kids lunch and one of the cats climbed into the fridge and sat behind the milk. Good thing I needed the milk a few minutes later, though she wasn't yet to the point of caring.
There is always bad dog owners and good dog owners regardless of the breed. This gif just reminded me of the bad ones.
Except licking the inside of my nose.
Yet, here you are spreading more misinformation.
I lost my cat for 3 days like this... it was horrible. The cat was super unconcerned.
I WISH my dachshund would do something this cute. But no, he loves to go lay spread eagle on the cold tile in front of the fridge and cool his nuts off every time I open the door..
That is fucking horrific
