Well, he looks precious. We've moved with ours several times and one HATES car rides, the other loves them. But, wow, alaska to New York? that is brave! Hope you have one of the "loves car rides". And yeah, we get the "oh she's big for a Pomeranian". My husband laughs at that one every time.
His name is Mr Bubbles and he is 11 years old. I got him when I lived in Alaska and drove his fuzzy butt (along with fish and a chinchilla) to New York. I have had people ask me if he is an arctic fox before. Or a Pomaranian.
Ok, out of nowhere I know, but OMG you have an Eskie!!! I never see those anywhere! Ours will be 10 this year and everyone always asks "is she a sammy puppy"? And when I say "no, she's a full grown eskie", they look at me and say "oh, I didn't know huskies came that small". (insert facepalming here) So, sorry, I just had to say Hi to another parent of an Eskie!
