Hi everyone!!The weekend here in Maine was hot and humid one day and the other day - wonderful. We had a very, special guest today - Alan E. Sparks, author - Dreaming of Wolves. He came to the sanctuary along with his brother to meet the Wolves and discuss his book. The Wolves were happy to have visitors. Tazlina seemed a little upset at first but remained settled for the remainder of the tour. We learned that Wolves in Europe are really not much different than here in the US. The only major difference is the "humans" view of the Wolf. Alan and his brother learned a lot about the unfortunate backgrounds of Anoki, Lomasi and Tazlina. All too common stories of Wolves in captivity...but their journeys brought them to the sanctuary where they are safe, loved, and happy.
We finished the tour discussing Alan's book and the wonderful 50% contribution of his book sales to the sanctuary - we are so Thankful for his generosity. We also noticed that there are colored photos as well to give you an even closer view of Alan's adventure in Romania and the Wolves he knew. I am actually starting my signed copy tonight...can't wait!!
It always amazes me the wonderful people we meet that have the same love for these incredible animals...and are part of the pack.Take care!!
