My daughter asks me about once a week what my favourite animal is, and my answer is always the same; wolfes. Ofcourse orcas are equally fascinating, but they live in the oceans and that doesn´t count here. To me wolfes are the epitomy of the deep mysterious wild.
Recently Mose (Moss) and Blues became part of our family. The Siberian Husky is, together with the Alaska Malamute, the canine that is most closely linked to, and resembles its ancestor - the wolf. They too howl towards the moon, hunt in packs, establish hierarchies and thrive in the harshest of conditions. And though Mose and Blues are domesticated and adapted to a modern life I like to think that they, just as Buck did in Jack Londons "The call of the wild", have inner visions of roaming with their forfathers across an unspoiled northern hemisphere.
