There have always been myths and legends about wolves and here is a picture of wolves and Native Americans together in unity.
I read a true story about an Indian who took in a wolf pup whose litter mates had drowned in their den, and the Indian was the only one who could get the pup out. The wolf parents were frantically pacing across the river, unable to save the litter. The man took the wolf pup back to his camp.
But the rest of his tribe were afraid of the wolf, afraid it would kill their horses or dogs. The wolf was the man's companion though, and when he and his friend hunted apart from the other men, the wolf went with them, alerted him when Indians from other tribes were nearby--they were always stealing each others ponies, and they would slip away unharmed.
One day, the wolf saw another silhouetted against the horizon. He would run off, then return, and run off again. They saw the two wolves together later, but though he would come down to visit with the man who saved him, the female wouldn't come near the Indian camp. He missed his wolf companion, but the wolf finally returned to the wild to be with his own kind.
And this is one of my wolves who is tuckered out from a long run in the woods, came back to the barn and realized someone had played a trick on him and moved his clothes. Not to worry. Tuckered out, he figured he'd just take a nap. And then...get whoever it was who took his clothes back. Did you hide them? :)
If you did, you'd better start running because he'll be on the hunt for you next! And then what? I'll leave that up to your very own imagination!
Last day of work!! Then I'm off for two glorious days!
Have a super Thursday!
