Yellowstone National Park is home to a few hundred wolves. I can’t believe my furkids are their distant cousins.
Jake, Hope and Windy are getting cabin fever after a couple days with no walks and quick dashes out to the backyard. So, we gave in yesterday and took them out into 4 inches of snow in 25-degree weather. After sunset. I’m guessing the neighbors thought we were crazy. Everyone was bundled up, though.
Initially their excitement overcame their environment. After five minutes Hope wanted in. Jake and Windy trudged on for a couple more minutes then started to turn and walk me back home.
I recalled a National Geographic Channel program, The Rise of Black Wolf, which I saw last weekend. This is a wonderful show that profiled an unusual wolf throughout his life. I highly recommend it. Insightful and with beautiful scenery, The Rise of Black Wolf will be shown again at 3 p.m. Dec. 17.
As for Jake, Hope and Windy, they would rather watch something on the Food Network.
