Intense Dakota

There are, imagine this, wolves at the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary. Real wolves. And, thanks to the very kind folks there, I was able to go on a tour of the sanctuary: I was inside the fences with the wolves, with nothing except my wits, my keen woodsman-ship and my skill to keep myself out of danger. Nah. It wasn’t exactly like that, really.

The wolves I encountered were all very wonderful, and the greatest danger I was in was from a 100 pound overly friendly animal deciding to greet me and make friends with me. Of course, 100 pounds of friendly wolf can be a wee bit overwhelming, so I had a guide to keep me (and the wolves, for that matter) out of trouble. It was an incredible experience to be able to be so close to these magnificent animals.

Their fur, by the way, feels nothing like you would expect. I thought, it being wet fur and all, that my hands would come away smelling like wet dog. Amazingly, that was not the case and their fur was clean, wonderful to the touch, and had little to no smell at all to it. And I got to feel a whole lot of different fur, because I met a whole lot of different wonderful wolves.

This particular wolf (to bring us back on topic, more or less) is Dakota. Dakota is friendly, personable, and quite the character. He was great to hang around to get to know, and what a fine fellow he is. He does have a certain intensity about him, but that’s a good thing, really. Oh. Petting a wolf in the wild…that probably isn’t the best thing to do. Not every wolf is as friendly as Dakota. But that’s OK, because he more than makes up for the rest of them.
