  1. Oh no! Don't show Chloe or now she'll want painted dog puppies instead of wolf puppies! They are really lovely creatures.

  2. Does Toonman know how lucky he is to have somebody who keeps him straight?

  3. Before I read this, I thought they WERE hyenas!
    Sure are beautiful creatures.

  4. I like so much African Wild Dogs. I have some doccumentary about them.
