Our Smokey, our matriarch born March 1995 has left us on December 11, 2011. Now free from fences she clears the great river as she runs down a well worn path. To sing in another world. It is a good day ......
For those left in her wake, we will heal and move forward. Safe journey wise mother. We will follow your teachings and try to carry ourselves with dignity and grace.

It is with a heavy heart that I share this news with you tonight. Our beloved Charlie, at twelve years of age has gone from our side. To say good bye seems somehow wrong, maybe until we meet again is more apropos. She moved on quietly in her sleep. She was the pride of the sanctuary. As a young wolf she was seriously injured and lost her front left leg. Her courageous recovery was nothing short of a miracle. A proud leader to the end. We will miss her.
I wonder does she stretch out all four legs now that she runs free of this plain?
Stay Golden Charlie Girl!

A hot day it was, May 31, 2011. Our dear friend Casper we bid you goodbye. He loved children, always ready to great them and if possible send a bit of mud in the direction of any passerby. He had a good nature about him. A wag and tilt to the head. Our little arctic curmudgeon. He has not been feeling well of late. Being almost 14, he had slowed down. I guess we all do. Now he runs in a far off wooded home with cool air and snowy peeks. His mate Bonnie at his side and his pack intact at last.
What stories he will share with Bonnie and she with him? Four years she has waited for him.
Take good care our kind and friendly Casper we will see you on the other side.

When my husband Steve and I started going to the Wolf Sanctuary, we didn’t know what to expect. From our very first visit we have fallen in love with this beautiful place.
I have loved wolves almost all of my life, so to see a real live wolf was such a treat for me.
People often talk about the howling of wolves and how they do not like it because it sounds “eerie”. I’ve never felt that way and to hear these wolves howl, it’s a beautiful symphony. Each time they “sing” it’s as if they have written a new song, they are never the same.
You will hear the “howl” as we all have heard it on tv. You will hear barks and yips, and then you will hear Merlin, the pure Eastern Timber Wolf who lives with his son Tioga, who is 4 years old and Tioga’s aunt Keesha. Merlin has a voice that has an absolutely beautiful range to it. He puts his head up a little bit and begins to howl, kinda high, then the howl comes down a bit and then back up, it is as if he is singing a beautiful piece of classical music. I stop and listen and watch Merlin, it is so gorgeous that I am almost moved to tears……….and then all of a sudden the howling stops and they go about their business of sniffing the ground or playing, I am left with a wanting of more howling, the singing is done………for now.
