Tonight I had to go into work and fix a computer problem... fun fun, thankfully [livejournal.com profile] wulfwalker drove me in and back.

The wolf-dogs love to lick peanut butter out of almost empty jars. Rowen has figured out how to lick, turn, lick, turn and so on. Below is a picture of him working on a jar I brought from home...


Big Cubs!

How big are the cubs getting?  Here is a picture of [livejournal.com profile] wulfwalker holding
Bear today. Remember they were born on 10/31/07!

This is how big Bear was on 12/01/2007

We arrived home safely from a great trip and took a few pictures of the wolf-dogs.

[livejournal.com profile] wulfwalker says that Bear was adopted to a new parent today. Two more to go! Below is a picture of Bear and his Wayah.

I've been busy both taking pictures and making new videos. The picture sets are almost too big to choose the best, so I'll just leave you with links to all the pictures. The telescopic lens is a must now as the cubs and dogs are running everywhere. It has been a joy capturing them at play.

New Flickr Sets...

Wolves and Cubs - 01/06/08

I've put together some new cub videos using the Adobe Premiere Elements 4 software. I'm partially impressed, but there is more to learn before I know this is the application to use for all my video editing needs.

The first video features two bag battles. You'll notice that some of the cubs want to chew on the bags and others just want to tussle. Destiny, the lone female and the smallest of the batch, is one of the ones that just wants to tussle. The second video has [livejournal.com profile] wulfwalker feeding Timber, the most shy of the cubs. She reported that there was some progress when food-bribes were used.

[livejournal.com profile] wulfwalker and I are staying at the house this New Years evening. We are wishing everyone a happy and safe time during their celebrations!

Below are two sample pictures for your viewing enjoyment from a new set taken today (12/31). There are 122 pictures in this flickr set. The first shows the cubs doing what they do best - tussling and playing. The second shows that [livejournal.com profile] wulfwalker is a wolf talker (smile).

Heads up guys... on 12/29 I took another monster set of cub pictures. There are 170 pics in this flickr set. I'll post a larger sample of them in a future photo essay (ASA blog... smile).

[livejournal.com profile] wulfwalker and I hung out with the doggies in the yard on Christmas day. The cubs are fully mobile and fully engaged in both play and food hunting modes. This gave me the opportunity to break out my camera's telescopic lens. No longer can I lay on the ground with a normal lens because these guys just move around too much now. I put the camera on sports movement mode and clicked off a terrific set of pictures. This blog only features a very few of the 199 pictures taken, so do please check out my flickr page to take in all the cub cuteness!

French toast anyone?  The cubs are almost as big as Toby now!

On 12/16 the cubs came inside for a short time. It was different for them, and consequently they hung close to the back door. I crawled around on the kitchen floor and got these pics...

All 15 pictures of the cubs are in this flickr set.

Today we had a chilly and windy day here in South Carolina. The weather has shifted from warm to cool overnight. Mystic was adopted out this past week, so we're down to six cubs. Wulfwalker has brought them into the house to socialize the cubs to the noise and separate them from the older dogs. I'll have pics in the future of the indoor antics.

All 53 pictures of the cubs are in this flickr set.

Wolf Love... 6:27 minutes.

[livejournal.com profile] wulfwalker begins by petting one of the cubs and then faces a battle of domination as Chakotay jealously grabs all the affection.

Hot Wolf Cubs... 46 seconds

We had a spell of warm weather on 12/9. This short video clip shows four cubs sitting relaxing and panting.

The cubs are really growing and their distinct personalities are beginning to show. I have almost 170 pictures from 12/01 and 12/02. The spread below shows the names given to each of the cubs and displays some of the pics showing those blossoming personalities.

140 cub pictures from 12/01 can be found here and 27 cub pictures from 12/02 can be found here.

Destiny is going to be bi-eyed: gray and blue

This is a gem of a picture from 11/23... [livejournal.com profile] wulfwalker was doing a wolf howl and one of the cubs joined in. I believe this black cub was the first borne and was also featured in a dream that my mate had prior to the cubs' birth.

This is a really good picture of [livejournal.com profile] wulfwalker, Chakotay and the cubs. Rowan and Max are in the left background.

I took some pictures of the wolf cubs on 11/18. The cubs are really getting large. One of the cubs is making breaks from the group and another is super whiney. Wulfwalker says that this is a normal thing as there are always one of these in a cub group (smile). I will post a blog of the cub pictures when I am feeling a bit better. Until then.... below are pictures of the one being called "Mystique" because of her mask. The pics show how much she has grown in about 18 days.

Bigger and bigger! )

Here's the back-story to [livejournal.com profile] wulfwalker's wolf-dog cubs born on 10/31. That night she heard a commotion in the pen area. Investigation revealed a black cub. The next day there was another cub. I came over after work and got to see and photograph the first two cubs. We both thought that Aurora, the alpha female, was the mother. Well, we were wrong. It turned out that Wayah, Aurora's daughter, was the mother. The two ended up in the den featured in the pictures. Aurora pinned down Wayah and the two remained in the den until the following day. [livejournal.com profile] wulfwalker finally lured out Aurora with some meat. Two cubs had turned into seven! Wayah has now fully embraced her position as mother and thankfully psycho-Grandmother Aurora is no longer a problem.

So very young...

[livejournal.com profile] wulfwalker's young female wolf-dog Wayah had seven puppies (aka cubs!!!) on 10/31. The first one was born at about 2:00 am. The rest followed that night and the following day. The puppies are really large and quite healthy now. Some more pictures of the puppies, their mother, and the pack hanging out with [livejournal.com profile] wulfwalker are in this flickr set.

Pictures of each puppy and the entire pack... )
