While walking the dog yesterday, we found the tracks of a pack of wolves that had passed across the edge of our property. (I live out in the highway in Alaska.) I took a picture of my hand next to a wolf track for comparison.
Now here’s a picture of my hand with one of our dog’s tracks:
And he’s not an especially small dog; he’s a 55-lb retriever mix.
And the dog’s tracks next to wolf tracks:
Wolves are huge.
dude, i’m tellin you, for realSometimes people ask if my klee kai is a wolf, like, seriously. And I’m always like oh no, ha ha he kind of looks like one, though, hunh? But inside I’m always like “uh, my dog weighs thirty pounds, wolves weigh more than me and my dog put together – if he was a wolf you wouldn’t be asking if he was a wolf, you’d be peeing your pants and demanding we leave”
like, a wolf is as tall when lying down as most dogs are standing.here, see for yourself. Labs are a very dog-sized dog, wouldn’t you say? Check this out
(this is a wolf in Alaska that found an unfenced dog park and slowly over the course of months learned how to hang out and have fun with the dogs)
SO BIG THO - here, have some more examples
I love how wolves & humans - so disparately sized - looked at each other and said, ‘Huh. That looks friend-shaped.’
