My Little Helpers

Of course Granite and Pippi are very cute, as they watch me making Christmas cookies, their eyes glowing and hoping I´d give them a bit of the dough to try.

But what struck me was the many comments and shares I received on this photo on Facebook. So many people, who own huskies themselves were amazed at those two sitting so close to each other, close to food, in peace.
Because the common knowledge is that huskies are cat killers. My house dogs (and we have four of them at the moment) are all huskies and all get along with our three cats just fine. It is a whole lot different story outside, where the pack is a pack, though :)

Generally I have to say, though, that it is very much about the time and efforts you spend making those two animal species co-exist. All of the four dogs were not used to living together with cats since puppyhood, For example Krtek or Granite would kill a cat in an instant second if they got the chance, but we explained it to them :)
