Wolf Dog Grieving

I made a 5 hour round trip to Montgomery, Texas to see wolves and wolf dogs that have been taken into protective custody at St Francis Wolf Sanctuary.

It was hard to get a picture of the carved wolf head beyond the gate, but here is the gate to the estate of the St Francis Wolf Sanctuary.

I wanted to share a few blogs about the various animals/sightings, and am working diligently on Heart of the Highland Wolf edits since it’s due on Monday. So I’ve really got to get back to it. But here is the first of the stories.

Part of the reason I write that my werewolves have long lives is I don’t want them to lose their mates at an early age. This is a part wolf, part dog, but looks very much like a wolf and acted like one, who lost his mate, Spirit, three weeks earlier. This was the first time he came out of his home to sit on top of it after losing her.

He actually came to the fence and howled a couple of times, but it was hard to get a picture of them howling. They’d howl, then pace and with their long legs, moved very quickly.

One thing that can distinguish a wolf from a wolf dog is the narrow chest, longer legs, and many constantly paced around their pens. Arctic wolves do have shorter legs and ears though. Arctic wolves are gray wolves also.

But he really did come out of his grief somewhat to finally come to the fence and participate a little in the excitement caused by visitors and volunteers who were there to see them and that was good to see. He was very alpha–his ears always perked up. I’ll show a very beta wolf also–and how different the posture.

Hope you all have a great Sunday!
Back to work!
