As passionate dog owners and dog lovers, we have owned several dogs over the years including two bulldogs, a basset hound, a blue tick coon hound, and a boxer, perhaps the biggest boxer you may have seen. We love our dogs because they bring joy and happiness to us sometimes at the lowest points we have been. Julie tends to be nurturing and so very kind to these great guys, me too but I bring more of the discipline that is always needed. My love for wolves has been part of me for a long time and that interest has taken us to wolf sanctuaries and on a constant watch for them from my backyard and into any natural habitat that we find ourselves visiting. Our saddest times have been those times when our blessed pet is leaving us from age and sickness. Our next dog surely doesn't replace what we have lost but the new life and friendship goes a long way.
