I actually wrote this article a couple of months ago, and every time I tried to post it, it didn’t post. I don’t know why, but decided I would try to post it again.
A month or so ago, LinkedIn decided to shut me down, for the second time. Twitter has shut me down twice. The only one that I have not been suspended from is facebook, and I only re-joined there, hoping to find where I could get another Kugsha after Tiponi suddenly died in June.
Of course, I could not get one, so joined up at AKC and found a female Giant Malamute. So, I never post anything on facebook that I don’t think I will get banned for, and when I get tired of searching for a male puppy for my female, I will most likely delete my account again. No, might keep it so that I have a place to go to argue with people who think they know a lot about raising wolves, when they are mostly just idiots.
When we first got Nootka GreatBear Oklavik of Greystone, people got one because they admire respect and love them. We love them for who they are, not as a status symbol like people do now. Now, it seems almost like a club. These people try to take them to obedience classes, and a bunch of crazy shit. They don’t respect or care about the animals. Not really. They come home from obedience class and put the wolves into a crate or a small fenced area where they don’t have to worry about them for the rest of the day.
Our whole property is fenced, there are no separate fences for our “kids”. They have the ability to come in and go out when they want. We live in the same area as they do. If they don’t feel like being social for whatever reason, they are left alone, and when they want to spend 24/7 in the house, they can do that too. I can’t even imagine trying to stick a 250-300 pound male wolf into a crate.
I like to have shit when I saw what these people do. They all use Embark for DNA testing, and brag about the percentage of wolf in their animals. Damnedest thing I have ever seen. Why don’t they just get a dog, that don’t mind if you treat it like a dog? These people want to take a wolf, and turn it into a dog. It’s no wonder the “wolves” that these people have aren’t allowed free roam of the whole yard, and the house. Their animals, would probably, when they have had enough of the classes, eat these people.
The closest thing that I can liken it to, is hearing a bunch of yuppies bragging about their non- motorized reel lawnmowers, and why each of their mowers, is better than everyone else’s because it is more “green”, or cuts a wider path than everyone else’s.
