Although she spent most of her time bonding with Bindi during today’s presentation, this female 4th-grader still found some time to bond with Hokshila. This young lady most certainly would tell anyone who would listen about how amazing these Wanagi ambassadors are, and how thrilling it was to spend time with them.
Long-time Wanagi volunteer Andrea Westwood loves spending time with Hokshila, reaffirming their mutual trust and affection for one another. Andrea is a tireless and dedicated worker who attends virtually every Wanagi event, and supplies the rescue with an unlimited number of photographs.
Artist and Wanagi volunteer Rick May has established a wonderful rapport with Hokshila and the other Wanagi canines. He not only volunteers at events and presentations, but also spends considerable time at Wanagi helping Stephanie and becoming increasingly comfortable with the wolves and wolf-dogs.
Prior to Wanagi’s visit, 4th-grade students were asked to bring any unwanted stuffed toys to the presentation to give to the wolves. Bindi especially loves stuffed toys, and was overjoyed when he received this large green frog!
These two photos show Wanagi volunteers with Hokshila (and Bindi) during the presentation at Comanche Elementary School. In the left-hand photo, volunteers Rick May and Andrea Westwood provide affection and comfort to Hokshila. (Bindi is in the photo, too . . . he’s just hidden behind Hokshila.) In the right-hand photo, volunteer Rob Shackleton spends time with Hokshila.
