    Hey group! My best friend and domestic partner is a 13-year old Sibe! She's diabetic, blind, suffers from thyroid problems but.....a damned good dog and buddy! I've been bouncing around looking for a good Sibe avatar to use and haven't found much. Any other doggy types out there who can make some suggestions? TIA! :)

    Hi there,
    the best way is to put your google to find images like those examples here
    http://home.planet.nl/~wiers002/images/p7029.jpg
    http://www.t-gallery.com/animals/dogs/dimages/dshusky.gif
    http://shcwc.tripod.com/SHCWCWeb/Images/siberian-husky.gif
    http://shcwc.tripod.com/SHCWCWeb/
    and save the image you like most --must be as clear and sharp as possible-- and with an image editor like Irfanview cut away all unnecessary stuff and resize the image to 60x60. Several people are rather good in this here on the board, so show the images you need if it is possible. Good luck!

    This would be what one of those looks like when cut and sized to fit an avatar here. If you find a good source picture, someone could probably convert it to an avatar for you if you don't have the needed software.

    Hi NanDog! :)

    Since I don't know the colour of your dog I made a few samples (from pictures on the web) for you! Let me know what you think or if the colours are not right on any of them...

    They are 60X60, which is the size required here.

    Just let me know if it's the right colour...
    I've got also an animated one but it's kinda blurred.

    Doesn't it just want to make you shout "Mush" and set off on a 1000 miler behind 10 dogs like that, what a blast.

    Cochise, :cool:
    PS. I've just added that to one of the things I would have liked to do in my life.

    As close as I've come to dogsledding was when Nanda was younger and we'd go Rollerblading with her on the leash! Now that was an experience (but not much exercise for me 'cuz I spent the first mile or so just trying to slow her down!) It was an andrenaline rush, though!

    Sounds fun to me! I did that with my German sheppard once. I had cross-country skis on and he pulled me over the trails. We have many sleigh dog clubs in Québec ! :)

    Yeah, Nanda's father Atka was owned by my sister and brother-in-law and he was a big, muscular Husky! One year we all went xc skiing at Mt. Rainier (I live about 50 miles from The Mountain) and my bro-in-law Mark got into his skis, picked up Atka's leash and yelled "Go!"

    I'm sure you can visualize the result. Atka took off like a missile and Mark went airborne and was launched headfirst into the snow and then drug like a sled! Pretty funny! :D

    Of course! we have many sleigh racing in Quebec. All dogs are impatient to go into the trails! They are really good dogs and they don't care the cold or the distance. They are amazing! :)

    You seem to be getting pretty proficient with images. I guess the old saying is true, pratice makes perfect. ;)

    Yeah, that's an awesome pic of the husky/wolf. He looks a lot like Atka, my dog's father!
