PROFILE: The “Wolf” Pack

For as long as I can remember, I wanted dogs. Several. Lots. A true pack.

My desire to be a dog parent may partially be due to deep-rooted issues of my childhood (sarcasm). My parents weren’t really dog people for some reason and thus we never really had the quintessential “family dog” growing up that you see in the movies. It’s a different story all together for my own family now and I am loving (almost) every minute of it. Below is a breakdown of our pack of Norwegian Elkhounds as of today.

Now that you’ve seen the bios, can you tell the four apart in the pics below?

Let me know if there is anything you’d like to know about the ups and downs of caring for a loving pack of four pups. Everything changes once you increase the number of dogs in your family (in good ways more than bad, in my opinion).

I will definitely add some links once I come up with some interesting posts to create on these crazy Elkhounds! 🙂
