Wapi - our two years old canadian wolf - died on June, 26th, 2012.

Regrettably there was now time for an emotinal farewell to Wapi. Being predictable for Taya and Cherokee, that they would not reach a "normal" age of a wolf, the death of Wapi was a shock for all of us. The reason for his "disease" is not yet completely clear. He looked very "floppy" during the day and underwent an emergency operation in the evening. But there was no help for him.

To loose such a lively and friendly wolf was terrible for all of us. Even Yukon and Nanuk missed him. They ran up and down in their enclosure and seemed to be sad and waiting.
