Artist's Description

WHEN I FIRST PURCHASED DEOGEE, I NEVER KNEW SHE WAS GOING TO MAKE SUCH A WONDERFUL MOTHER. IN FACT, FOR A LONG TIME, IT DIDN’T LOOK LIKE I WAS GOING TO GET TO BREED HER AT ALL. SINCE SHE WAS REGISTERED WITH WORLD WIDE KENNEL ASSOCIATION, I NEEDED A REGISTERED MALE TO BE ABLE TO REGISTER THE LITTER. I GOT LUCKY, 2 1/2 YEARS AFTER GETTING DEOGEE,IN 1995 I WAS GIVEN A PAPERED 13 WEEK OLD TIMBERWOLF, WHICH I NAMED “FOUR SOCKS”. AT THE AGE OF 11 MONTHS, SOCKS GOT TOGETHER WITH DEOGEE WHEN SHE WAS A LITTLE OVER 3 1/4 YEARS OLD. BUT, THE AGE DIFFERENCE DIDN’T SEEM TO BOTHER THEM AND I CERTAINLY DIDN’T OBJECT. SINCE SOCKS WAS SO YOUNG, I FIGURE HE GAVE PRETTY MUCH ALL THE STRENGTH HE HAD IN HIS LOINS AT THAT AGE AND DEOGEE ONLY HAD 3 PUPPIES. BUT, THAT WAS OK WITH ME, 3 WAS PLENTY. IN THIS PHOTO OF “MOM AND THE THREE KIDS”, THAT I TOOK JUST 4 WEEKS AFTER THE PUPS WERE BORN, ON JANUARY 22, 1996, DADDY, SOCKS WAS STANDING OFF TO THE LEFT OF THE PHOTO AND THE ONLY LIFE FORMS I’VE EVER HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH BRINGING INTO THIS WORLD WERE ALL STANDING ON THE DEVIDER BOARD, TRYING TO SEE WHAT DAD WAS DOING. FROM LEFT TO RIGHT ARE, “TACOMA”, NAMED AFTER THE TOYOTA PICK UP TRUCK, GO FIGURE. “SMOKEY FOUR SOCKS” NAMED AFTER HIS FATHER AND “SASHA MARIE”, WHO DIDN’T GET THE SAME LOVE AS THE 2 BOYS DID. THE LAST TIME I SAW HER SHE WAS 1 1/2 YEARS OLD AND IN THE CUSTODY OF THE DOG POUND. MOM, DEOGEE IS STANDING WATCH IN THE BACKGROUND. DAMN PEOPLE, IF YOU’RE NOT GOING TO TREAT A HYBRID LIKE A FAMILY MEMBER, IN EVERY WAY, DON’T GET ONE. THEY NEED LOTS OF LOVE AND ATTENTION FOR THE FIRST 2 YEARS AT LEAST, THEN YOU CAN SLACK UP SOME. DON’T GET A WOLF DOG JUST TO SAY YOU HAVE A WOLF HYBRID. IT TAKES LOTS OF DEDICATION TO RAISE WOLVES AND I DON’T RECOMMEND PUREBRID WOLVES TO ANYONE. LEAVE THEM IN THE WILD, BUT HYBRIDS OF THE RIGHT MIX, MAKE FANTASTIC COMPANIONS AND FAMILY MEMBERS.
