#GoldilocksAndTheFloofs
It’s important to take a moment to remember that the holidays are about more than giving gifts- they are also about appreciating the gifts you already have.

There are moments I’ve witnessed that I find myself dreaming about over and over again... hoping one day to experience it once again.

#300k
To celebrate hitting 300,000 followers I wanted to share one of my very favorite photos of Kyro.
This was back to when he was a little over a year old and he showed me the importance of stopping to enjoy your surroundings.
I wanted to say a huge thank you to all my followers for helping me reach this achievement. And a big thank you to those accounts who have shared my photos for others to enjoy.
I never would have imagined joining @instagram that one day we’d reach 300,000!
Your ongoing support has made such a difference in my life and really been such a driving force for me to chase my drives.
Not only have you inspired me to pursue my passions, but you’ve directed my photography platform to help educate about a variety of topics such as: Domestic Violence, Wolfdog Education, Northern Breed Education, Raw Diets and several others.
Having goals and reasons for sharing my photos has given even more meaning to each and everyone I share.
I’ve met so many wonderful people through this community and befriended incredibly talented, spirited and adventurous souls- it’s a blessing.
Thank you all for everything you’ve done and continue to do for me- I wouldn’t be where I am today without your support.
So much love from Kyro, Dovah, Roo and I.

#PhotoCredit
There’s been a huge increase in photo theft recently here on @instagram.
While I absolutely do not mind people sharing my photos when credit is given- it’s incredibly frustrating to discover uncredited posts.
I’ve been discovering more and more of my photos edited/altered without my permission and that have had the watermark removed. Even accounts claiming my dogs as their own.
1. The amount of time taken to do these alterations could easily be invested in properly crediting the image.
2. If you’re a true fan of my account- you wouldn’t feel the need to be deceitful and remove my watermark.
3. My dogs are the equivalent to my children. It’s hurtful, wrong and immensely disrespectful to claim my dogs as your pets.
4. It’s discouraging to have people take your images and claim them as your own. The amount of time and work that goes into each photo I post is extensive. Between early morning wake-ups, multiple hours driving, miles and miles hiking, hours driving home, hours into the night editing, training my dogs, planning trips, etc. All of that work and people cannot find the time to simply add: PC: @goldilocksandthewolf?
I love my fans and I love this community. The support has been incredible and has helped drive me to chase my dreams. I want to continue to share with you; however, I would hope for respect for the time I invest in sharing each capture.
This definitely does not apply to the majority of this community, but it’s certainly been a problem I’ve witnessed with more than just my account.
Please share photos of the accounts you love- just show them you truly care by crediting them properly.
You aren’t a fan, follower or support when you don’t credit images.
You become a photo thief and discredit hard work.
A huge thank you to all the accounts who share my work with credit given- you are major supports and I appreciate every single share.
And a big thanks to those accounts who have tagged me in photos that are mine that haven’t been properly credited. It’s incredibly helpful!

#PupDate
As I posted in a previous education post: socialization is immensely important for puppies.
When I first started to learn about Dovah’s personality it was expressed that he is very shy and cautious of new people. This is really common in wolfdogs and also can be a behaviorism seen in Northern Breeds/Spitz Breeds, Working Breeds and Primitive Breeds.
It was recommended Dovah went to a home environment that had the time, resources and ability to commit to properly socializing him.
His shy personality really drew me to him as Kyro is completely opposite and is an extremely social dog.
It was pretty obvious immediately that Dovah’s socialization would require much more time than Kyro’s ever did.
I started the long and slow process of introducing him to new people in controlled, specific situations.
Working at a 24/7 animal emergency hospital has been a big help as the staff here understands behavior and how to approach a uncertain puppy.
Dovah, so far, has surpassed all expectations and is surprisingly confident when it comes to new places/adventuring.
While he still has a great shyness toward men (especially with facial hair and hats) he has really warmed up to women.
It’s taken a lot of positive interactions to help build up his confidence, but he’s making remarkable progress.
It certainly helps that his Brother is a social butterfly and really instills a desire for seeking attention- even from strangers.
Ensuring that every interaction with both new and old people in a positive manner has been the biggest challenge of this. Wolfdogs tend to be more sensitive than typical dogs. One negative experience can be life lasting and really set you leaps and bounds backwards.
Directing every interaction, explaining to people how to approach and rewarding positive behaviors thus far has really made a difference.
I’m beyond proud of him and am happy to see all of the time and effort invested paying off. He’s has the sweetest, most cuddly disposition once he’s warmed up to people.
This is just a reminder that all dogs (with or without content) are a lifestyle commitment and time investment.

Spent the last couple days adventuring on both sides of the pass.
Snow on one side and ice on the other- cold weather was ideal for the floofs.
