The Honour of the Wolf Bond

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:49 am by Aleksan

While I eat breakfast Sammy lies at my feet under the table, silently, avoiding eye contact, looking sheepish – but when he thinks my attention is on my food I sometimes catch him taking an interested peak, ears forward, eyes as big as saucers. He is reminding me of my feudal loyalty to reward his stewardship with a token of esteem way beyond its nutritional value. As I near the end of my crust he becomes alert, darts me a questioning look in hopeful anticipation. I pretend not to notice, and as he turns his head away I produce a tiny bit of toast. Instantly he rises up and without delay wolfs down my offering, before going off to lick his chops. Honour amongst wolves has been satisfied, and our bond remains secure.
