Have you heard of Wolfenoot? It wouldn’t be a surprise if you hadn’t: Wolfenoot, which takes place November 23rd, is a fairly new holiday, celebrating wolves and dogs, and anyone who has been kind to them. In fact, it only started back in 2018. However, it’s already gaining popularity. We’re more than happy to help spread the word about this ‘pawesome’ occasion. A Fort Collins, CO vet offers some tips on how to celebrate below.
According to the official Wolfenoot website, a big part of celebrating Wolfenoot is hiding presents for your loved ones … both the two and four-legged ones. You don’t have to go all-out … little trinkets are fine. Finding them is half the fun! Don’t forget about Fido: get him some new toys, and hide them for him. You can also hide small treats or pieces of kibble.
A good meal is a must when celebrating any special occasion, and Wolfenoot is no exception. What’s on the menu? Red meat, of course … because that’s what wolves eat. Vegans and vegetarians can opt for plant-based foods instead. Don’t forget about dessert! A round cake decorated with white frosting, so it looks like a full moon, is a pretty perfect choice here.
What better way to wind down than by reading the official Wolfenoot storybook? The story is about an ordinary wolf, who became the Spirit of The Wolf, and now delivers presents every year on November 23rdto promote kindness. This is great bedtime reading for kids!
There isn’t a Wolfenoot movie just yet, but there are some options that come pretty close. Really, anything that features people being kind to dogs or wolves would qualify. That makes for a pretty impressive list, which includes Marley and Me, Call Of The Wild, and White Fang, to name just a few.
The real meaning behind Wolfenoot isn’t just about nose boops and tail wags: it’s really to celebrate kindness, and just help make the world a better place for our canine companions. There are many dogs in need of kindness, and also many ways to help them. You can make donations, volunteer, or foster homeless dogs. Adopting a new canine pal is also a great way to please the Spirit Of The Wolf!
