I grew up with cats and always wanted a dog. In fact, I've always wanted a husky. Well, my dreams came closer to reality when I found out that my girlfriend's aunt and uncle used to race sled dogs and they have a kennel full of 18 huskies. All of their dogs are too old for serious racing (most are 10 years old or more), but that doesn't mean they don't love to run all over the 2 acres or so of fenced in area in the backyard.
Here's their home. There are 6 different kennels, 3 dogs to a kennel. As you can see in the pic, they have some fenced-in area outside...
...and inside. Notice the big fans for when it gets too hot in the summer (they live in Minnesota).
Here's one of the dogs in his kennel. I can't get enough of those eyes.
Same dog, only outside.
When I was talking to the owners they said they only have huskies, but this one didn't look like your typical husky to me and I forgot to ask them about him. Does anyone know what kind of husky (if it is, indeed, a husky) this is?
Alaskan husky on the right and Siberian husky (I think...) on the left. I've always preferred the look of the Siberian husky, but the Alaskan husky really grew on me.
Shedding some of that winter coat. It was fun to pull the excess fur off of the dogs.

I never imagined myself saying this, but I can't wait to go back to Minnesota.
