    This is such an uncanny resemblance to my dog while growing up Ray. His name was King and has always been deeply missed, a gentle animal yet a protector. Striking pose..Jules…Favour

  • Thanks Jules. There are times that we have to remind ourselves that these are not dogs.

    Great shot and absolutely fantastic looking dog! :D

  • Thanks very much. Except that it is a wild arctic wolf. We have a pack that lives more or less in the same area as we are here in Alert, Nunavut. You should check it out on google maps.
