Wolf Day

As we mentioned yesterday, we spent Saturday morning with our neighbor who has four wolves (you can see a previous post about him here).  We were introducing a New York Times writer to him (and you can see the writers Facebook page here).  We thought you might enjoy a few pictures of our visit.

Hanging out in the compound - a red wolf and a gray wolf pup.

Red wolf loping toward us.

Arctic wolf and gray wolf enjoying the sun.

Did we mention how ferocious they were?

Oh did we fail to mention that?

Hmmmmm - they are almost related to us working breed types, huh?

    I (Mouse) was born at a malamute/husky rescue group down South of Oregon. There was a big big hybrid wolf there as well. He was a very timid poor pup (as what my hu-mummy called him). He would always shake when humans went by….he was tortured by previous owner. Very sad.

    Wolves are gorgeous. Strangers think Elmo & I are wolves quite often.

    They’re so beautiful. I can’t understand the immense hatred some people feel for wolves.

    About 25 years ago, I looked after a Wolf/German Shepherd mixed breed and I have yet to know a better dog than this was. I just loved him, and think of him almost every day, and wouldn’t want one on a bet!

    They are working nearly as hard as all of you do!

    Love this! I had a chance to visit someone in my area some years back who has wolves. At the time I was there, she had 1 beautiful black male and 1 white female. They are so impressive when you can see them up close.

    Thanks for the great pictures of our ancestors. We thought they might at least pretend to be fierce.

    Our hu-Mom has loved wolves all her life, and our house proves it. Every wall in every room has at least one picture of our ancestors. A few years ago, she even got to hold a two-week-old wolf baby at a wildlife park near where we live, and has the picture to prove it. Sooo long ago, and she keeps reminding us.

    Oh wow! How cool is that?! You got wolf neighbors. Piappies Mom is so excited to see their photos and wonders if they, too go on walks once in a while. They are a beautiful pack indeed.

    Enjoy your weekend, our dear pals of the Herd!

    It’s amazing how much the little grey one and the white one look like Kiska and Qannik.

    I guess know I know what Bunny really means when she talks about getting in touch with her inner wolf! 😛 Apparently a nap is near!

    We had a neighbor a few years ago that rescued wolf- and wolf-hybrids. He had a beautiful pack. I had some wonderful experiences with them.

    I know those wolves from their visits to the vet clinic (where I work) They are beautiful and wonderful and create so much excitement among the staff and clients who are lucky enough to see them.

    Your DNA from the Chihuahua to a Great Dane differs from a wolf by .6%
