There’s a bra nd new doggy holiday on the calendar that has the puparazzi jumping for joy. Joining the ranks of such adorable pet celebrations as Answer Your Cat’s Questions Day, Take Your Dog To Work Day, Doggie Date Night, and If Pets Had Thumbs Day, we officially welcome Wolfenoot, a celebration of wolves, dogs, and anyone who has been kind to them. A local vet offers an introduction to Wolfenoot in this article.
Wolfenoot hasn’t been around for long at all. However, it’s already made quite an impression on the internet. It was started back in 2018 by a seven-year old boy from New Zealand. The youngster had what we think may be one of the best ideas ever: celebrating the ‘Spirit of the Wolf’ and anyone who has dogs or has been kind to them. His mom happily got on board with the idea, and helped him promote it. The rest is history in the making!
A Pawspicious Occasion
Wolfenoot is slated for November 23rd. Why the 23rd? This is the anniversary of the death of the ‘Great Wolf!’ That tale is described in the Wolfenoot Story book. The book was written by the child who originally had the idea. It can be purchased online through the Patchwork Raven here .
Just what do you do to celebrate Wolfenoot? The ‘Spirit of the Wolf’ will go around and hide small gifts for anyone who loves or has been kind to animals. If you want to get your canine pal involved, hide some things for him to sniff out. After the gifts have been found, then the participants—also known as Wolfenati—should enjoy some red meat. Why? Because that’s what wolves eat! Then, you’ll top that meal off with a round cake decorated like a full moon. As for Fido, give him something yummy as well. It’s not a bad idea to wind down with a good wolf or dog movie or documentary. If you make any social media posts, use the hashtags #wolfenoot and the even more adorable #nohateonlysnootboops. Howling at the moon is optional.
H elping Dogs
Of course, another thing you can do to celebrate is to help canines in need. There are many wonderful charities and animal rescues that always could use donations or social media support. You can also help support a conservation society that works with wolves. That’s really honoring the spirit of the Great Wolf!
