There’s a new doggy holiday on the calendar that has the puparazzi jumping for joy. Joining the ranks of such fun and beloved pet celebrations as Answer Your Cat’s Questions Day and If Pets Had Thumbs Day, we now have Wolfenoot, a celebration of wolves, dogs, and anyone who has been kind to them. A local veterinarian offers an introduction to this new doggy holiday in this article.
Wolfenoot hasn’t been around for long, but it has already made quite an impression on the internet. It was started in 2018 by a little boy from New Zealand. The youth had what may be one of the best ideas ever: celebrating the ‘Spirit of the Wolf’ and anyone who has dogs and/or has been kind to them. His mom was happy to get on board with the idea, and helped him promote it. The rest is history!
Wolfenoot is coming up on November 23rd. Why is it the 23rd? This is the anniversary of the death of the ‘Great Wolf,’ as described in the Wolfenoot Story book. The book, which was written by the child who had the idea, can be purchased online through the Patchwork Raven here .
What do you do to celebrate Wolfenoot? The ‘Spirit of the Wolf’ will hide small gifts for anyone who loves or has been kind to animals. If you want to get Fido involved, you can also hide some things for your canine buddy to sniff out. After all the gifts have been found, then participants—who are of course called Wolfenati—should enjoy some red for dinner. Why? Because that’s what wolves eat! (Of course, if you’re a vegetarian, you can have a veggie burger instead.) Then, top it off with a cake decorated like a full moon. As for your own canine friend, give him something yummy as well. It’s not a bad idea to wind down with a good wolf or dog movie or documentary. If you make a social media post, help spread the word by using the hashtags #wolfenoot and #nohateonlysnootboops.
Another great way for you to celebrate is to help dogs in need. There are many wonderful charities and animal rescues and charities that could use donations or social media support. You can also help support a conservation society that helps protect wolves.
