Tom: No more snow since I last wrote about it, but they are announcing some for tonight and more for Friday. Woo Hoo (#1 isn't quite so enthusiastic...)!
Anyway, today we thought we would introduce to you a couple of stunning woofies we know. In fact, they are our Dr. C's woofies. They are Saarloos Wolfhounds, a breed that was created in Holland in the 1930s by crossing a German Shepherd with a female wolf from Rotterdam Zoo, and then adding a lot more wolf. The idea was to eliminate a lot of the problems that came with inbreeding of dogs and create a super "service dog." Things didn't quite work out that way and many people find these amazing creatures a little unsettling, with their amazing amber wolf eyes, but we think they are magnificent!
Please meet KAI:
And his sister SHAKA:
They are generally in a room right behind the reception desk at the clinic, and most people give them a wide berth, except for #1 who always goes over to give them a big cuddle. She says she knows that the only thing to fear from them is "death by licking"!!!
I hope you enjoyed meeting our buddies. And just in case you would otherwise be disappointed, here are a couple of pics of me!
