In Memory of Our Pack

On Tuesday, December 20th 2016 at 1:10 PM, Milagro, little friend to all the world at approximately 9 years old, left the pack to go join his friends over the rainbow road. ​In Spanish, ‘Milagro” means Miracle.​ He was & is a Miracle. He had 6 1/2 ​-7 years with me & the pack when I rescued him from ‘the needle of death’ in Valencia County. He was the consummate Ambassador. He gave his love to everyone & didn’t know a stranger. ​Milagro ​truly did God’s Work. ​T​hat is what “Service” is all about.​….Giving of yourself without expecting anything in return. Blessings to Our Milagro. He gave so much love back to the World, to everyone. Milagro touched thousands of lives. He will live on in all our hearts.
That’s my boy.
June 17th, Liberty crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. His birthday would have been 9/11 and he would have been 15. He was and is a survivor. He healed children of their fear of larger K9’s . . . he did that for adults as well. He was the Alpha of the Wanagi Wolf Pack. His gentle, calm, focused demeanor showed everyone that he is the Alpha and that he is the epitome of love & kindness. He came to me with Lupus, was cured of cancer, and lived happy and healthy up until the last day of his life.

 

Hokshila, the Grand Wanagi Wolf Rescue Ambassador for 13 + years, crossed over the Rainbow Bridge on May 2nd, 2015. In a matter of 24 hours, both his back legs gave out & he was no longer able to stand…to walk, to ‘jog’ , to do his personal business. Yes, he had calcium deposits on his spine & muscle degeneration because of his size & age. His energy level was great up until the last breath. He will always be the ‘Gentle Giant’…..giving & sharing love from his big heart to all who have met him. There will never be another like him. Bless you, Gentle Soul.

Kola left his beautiful body today, January 1st 2015. He was 11 years old and 100 furry pounds of love. For those of you that have met him & known him….I know that you all loved him to bits & that he loved you to bits. He was & is a hug-able, timid, loveable teddy bear wolf-dog. He will be terribly missed. He gave so much to everyone.

On Sept. 30th, Hozho–Stephanie’s special “helper”, with dignity and grace, left her physical body after a strong fight against a rare form of bladder cancer. With everyone’s help, with their prayers and donations, Hozho had 3 weeks of remission. Up until the last minute, her little Aussie Shepard tail was wiggling …..always “walking in boundless joy.””Thank you, Hozho- for your constant love, devotion & selfless service to me & to the Wanagi Wolf Pack.”

Silver Bear: On June 2, 2012, one of the most beloved of all Wanagi’s wolf-dogs departed her earthly existence. Silver Bear was rescued from a hoarding situation by Stephanie and came to live at Wanagi WR on Mother’s Day, 2010. When Stephanie adopted her, Silver Bear had not yet been spayed, a condition which was soon rectified. However, the previous constant reproductive demands made on Silver Bear’s body came with a high cost, and veterinary bills were averaging over $200/month, just to ensure Silver Bear’s health and comfort. But she was worth every cent. Silver Bear, you will be missed by all who loved you .  .

Seneca means “A Proud People.” She was a cinnamon Husky X Gray Wolf and was one of our ambassador wolf-dogs. Her birthday was February 12, 1996. She was flown in from Lakeland, FL, after much abuse, but she flourished and was in beautiful health! She visited schools and other venues with her pen-mate Hokshila and me, educating children of all ages. Sadly, Seneca passed away at age 16 on Aug 8, 2010.

Dizhoni (‘Navajo-Dine’ means ‘One who walks in beauty’) was a grey wolf and was rescued at the age of 3 in 2004. Weighing only 48 lbs. when she was rescued, she grew to a healthly 90 lbs with good food and care. Dizhoni was a tender and gentle creature that always wanted a family to take her for walks and let her sleep inside. Sadly, Dizhoni passed away in 2011.
