  4. This beautiful spirit who happens to be a pit bull (often wrongly thought of as being very aggressive) comes through the voice of her owner (guardian) Jim. Jim gave me an interview while we were at the Brimfield Antiques Fair where he and his wife have a booth and always bring Penny. During the photoshoot, Penny kept trying to get all the passersby to play ball with her...One of Jim's messages about what we can learn from other animals is to play more.

  5. Michelle Proulx shares the love and respect she has for wolves at the sanctuary she runs, focusing on Isabeau and her relationship with Nashoba. Isabeau was born at a breeding facility in Oregon. Advertised as a pure wolf, she was sold to a couple from California when she was only a few weeks old. By the time Isabeau was four months old, the couple was having a difficult time coping with her wolf-like behaviors. She was food aggressive, played hard, and destroyed items in the house. In addition, wolves and wolf-dogs were not legal in the municipality where the couple lived. The final straw came when Isabeau bit a neighbor's child while playing. The couple contacted the American Sanctuary Association, which in turn sent out an alert to all of their accredited members, including W.O.L.F.
