Ever hear that when you were growing up? If you make a face, it can freeze that way?
Can you imagine your face freezing if you wrinkled your nose like these wolves? Of course, seeing those wicked canines would really make you feel as though the “face” made would give the recipients of the expression a heart attack. 🙂 If you weren’t a wolf.
Wolves are sociable animals. With one another, they have a pecking order, but they’re also loving toward each other. Romance? Yes. With alpha pack leaders, they share a courtship phase and mate for life. They’re devoted to each other.
Some men are wolves that are there for their mates for the long term. Some are dogs. 🙂
Think about it. When we had a toy poodle and she was in heat, she was totally a hussie! The same with any of the dogs we raised. Any male dog would do. And any male would be happy to service a female in heat.
But not wolves. They’re devoted to their mates.
It’s interesting to note that dogs descended from wolves. So how did the–forget-I’m-your-mate and anyone-will-do issue happen?
With a pack, they can only handle so many litters. They have only so much prey to sustain them, only so much territory that they can claim. So they can’t just service every wolf in the area and leave them with pups. And they don’t let them fend for themselves either. They take care of them. The whole pack does. Even golden eagles will take off with a wolf pup that strays on its own. And bears, too.
So the pack stays together, cherishes their offspring, until they are old enough to move on and form a pack of their own. And the instinct to continue these traits are passed along.
So wouldn’t you rather have a wolf for a mate, than a dog???
I’ve been asked to provide some articles for 3 blogs, and I’m off to write about romance for a nonfiction book. Hmm, I wonder if I can reference dogs and wolves in that article? LOL 🙂
Thanks to a fan, Martha, who has a place in Maine, and loved Legend of the White Wolf because her husband has also tried unsuccessfully to hunt bear there and sent me a lovely wolf mug–that I put on display at work with my wolf books!!!
Have a super hump day!!!
