Version II of my sphinx - we had to design a teacher for the Harry Potter universe - mine is a Indian sphinx who was taken during the British rule of India and kept as a decorated pet of sorts until she was freed later and is now a librarian at Hogwarts.
“I got both of them from local shelters. When I got her in 2006, the staff told me she was a shepherd husky. I go to the dog park, I’m meeting people with shepherd husky mixes, and they look nothing like her. I get in my car, I’m driving, I look in the rearview mirror, I see these eyes and I’m like, I’ve got a wolf in my car. Then, when she was 10-months old, there was a shepherd breeder and trainer in the dog park, and at the end of the lesson, the trainer came up to me and asked, ‘What kind of dog is that?’ And I’m thinking, Shepherd husky. You should know, you are a breeder. She said, ‘That’s a wolf.’”
Thats mildly hilarious
what do you think of this naturepunk ?
Already re-blogged this, but it’s apparently making the rounds again.
This is a classic case of “well, if it doesn’t look exactly like a purebred shepherd/husky is *must* be a wolf!”
Neither of these animals appear to have any wolf content whatsoever. Their body structure and skull size are doglike; their ears, noses, eyes, and jowls are all dog, too; lastly, their easy nature in a public space is likewise an indication these two pups are “just” dogs.
Rescuing a wolfdog is not easy - I know this story intimately. Woofers don’t adjust well when separated from the people who raise them, and do not transition nicely into new homes. If not raised around people, in a stable environment, they quickly revert to feral behaviors and are virtually impossible to place safely in the average person’s care.
I got my low-content wolfdog in winter of last year, and last weekend was the first ‘flawless’ one we’ve had together (and by flawless, I simply mean that he didn’t destroy anything, recalled when I gave the command, and quit mouthing on my arms when I signaled that he was getting too rough - by all accounts, he simply did what was expected of him, when it was expected, and I’ve never been happier). But it took us more than half a year to reach this point! I will need to continue keeping up with his training on a daily basis if I expect the lessons to stick. We’ll have good days, and we’ll have bad days. But these little victories are testimony to how far we’ve both come.
The only reason I’ve been able to manage Jude is because I’ve had a lot of support from others within the wolfdog community. An uneducated person adopting a shelter-raised wolfdog wouldn’t stand a chance of being able to provide that animal with a healthy, happy life.

a new zine called shitty horoscopes that i’ll be premiering this year at the Toronto Queer Zine Fair, among other things! hopefully i’ll make volumes available for online purchase soon. credit where credit is due: this was inspired by the huge number of made-up horoscopes floating around tumblr lately, and angry-poems.
