Not a dog

Hello. My name is Feather. I'm a full-blooded wolf. Half of me is Arctic wolf and the other half is Timber wolf. I was a rescue and can't be released back into the wild. I'm the beta wolf of the pack and the lowest ranking member. I do, however, have other privileges. Because I'm so tame, very gentle, and have a nurturing nature, it is my honor to help with the other rescues and mother all of the orphans that come to my home each year.

My rescuer is a kind man who loves all animals. He takes me with him when he presents programs for the public. One of these presentations is where this picture was taken of me relaxing on the cool floor away from lots of little feet. Enjoy painting me. I'd like to see what you do. Maybe your paintings can be printed and generate some cash for my always low-funded home.

Feather

Feather is my friend. She and I have taken many pictures together. It will be fun to see what you all come up with.

Janet

Beautiful girl for sure Janet.

Had to do two. Did a fake smudge and then converted that result into a sketch.

Click here for the smudge; the sketch turned out to be acceptable as an attachement (still 68% quality though).

Re: Not a dog

Great responses so far. Feather is so beautiful. I knew that she would paint up well.

Palms, I'm adding a few more pictures. I had to reach into the archives for these. The conditions on Saturday were very crowded and most of the shots I took were cluttered or blurry.

I also added the Alpha wolf, who has passed on since I took his picture.

Enjoy these as well.

Janet

Re: Not a dog

Janet, she is very beautiful indeed. I played a little but am not so sure if I like the pose....

Great work here from all so far
