Last night as I was about to let my dogs out before turning in for the night, I was startled as I opened my front door. Just off my front porch were two huge wolves. Just last weekend someone remarked that they had seen a wolf who had been hit on the interstate not far from here. He had heard they were being reintroduced to Kentucky. I am sure they were not coyotes, I've been close to coyotes, these animals were much larger, and had dark guard-haired coats. They both jumped as soon as I opened the door, they had been drinking out of the water bowls I keep for the birds. They were very startled. I had noticed the past week or so that the dogs go nose nuts around the bowls in the morning, and search for "something" and look off into the woods across from us. I knew something had been visiting in the night because Snickers has growled during the night and was looking out our window. I did startle these guys, thank goodness I have a storm door. They ran to the other side of the road and turned and looked over at me and now the crazed dogs that were in the house wanting out. Then they took off to who knows where. I have seen wolves in natural museums and at a Bass World museum in Missouri. These animals were as large and the same colors as the wolves I've seen stuffed. My thoughts raced.......how exciting.........how scary..........how cool...........keep your eyes open girl when you walk.....I don't have a big stick..like that would do any good. Duke was ready for the fight, he barked and growled, all 7 pounds of him. Snickers is VERY protective of her domain and just about went through the glass door......well it took sometime to settledown for bed. I did have to get up at 3 a.m. to let them out because I wouldn't let them out earlier and I didn't want puddles in the morning. Now I have a new sound to listen for in the night and I am truly excited that nature rules here close to the Daniel Boone National Forest. Life is as it should be.........peace!
