Wamaka arrived as a pup with a major jaw defect that prevented him from eating properly. We had three options: to put him down; try to align his teeth through surgery that would involve breaking his jaw, cutting and then resetting bone with no guarantee of success; or let him live as best he could making sure he got enough to eat. We chose to help him live as best he could, but it was hard to keep weight on him. For a while he was losing weight no matter how much we fed him, so we took him into the cabin for observation. We put him in a temporary kennel, left for ten minutes, and above are the result of 10 minutes of wolf-joy. Jean is wooing him into allowing himself to be picked up before he leaps over Jean’s shoulder onto the next table for more joyous destruction.
