Sadly, Tuk has passed away. He died July 3, 2011, and was 12 years old. He is watching over Shelly and Casey and the rest of the pack, and is running free now. It breaks my heart, as I felt I had a special bond with him. Hopefully, Maya won't be too lonely without him. I fear she too, will pass soon as well. You're in our hearts Tuk, we'll never forget you.

Every favorite, and every comment help keep his memory alive. If any of you have gone on a wolf walk with him, I hope you will be able to keep his memory alive through your experience and through your own photos.

*edit* I've joined 50+ groups since I started to get this picture out, and so many people have invited me into new groups that I feel honored. If you have a group of any size, and would like this photo in your group, feel free to do so. I would love to join any group, and get my pictures out there.

I will be going down to see Shelly and Casey in a while, to pay my respects, and to meet Moki and Mack, the two new pups. Their page is here- [link]
I will hopefully get to go on a walk with Maya again before she too, passes away.

You can help support Shelly and Casey Black by visiting their site here- [link]

This picture just reaches out to me! It's very original, giving it the impression of how wolves look in their natural state, which blows me away. The color quality in this photo is fantastic, luring people in to see this magnificent animal. With the wolf (<3) looking to his left, and with the great quality, you can really see all the details. This photo was taken at the perfect time, showing how beautiful, and respected wolves are. Very nicely done. I love how this creature's expression shows curiosity. Everything about this photo is beautiful, including the background. The nature in the background shows how free-spirited wolves are. I very much respect this picture, and the wolf in it. Plus, look at the fur and eyes, and how the compliment each other. It just adds more pizzazz, making me love it even more. :)

I must say that I have had this experience also. Growing close to one of these beautiful creatures and then losing them is awful! I sat here and cried & cried over wolves I've known on a personal basis and "walked" with. My sincerest condolences on the loss of Tuk. He is beautiful!!!! I knew a Maya also, but sadly she passed away quite suddenly and unexpectedly several years ago. I still love her brother, Tristan, who is now up in age also.

Thank you for your words. I am still heartbroken over them, but the kind words and stories of others helps ease the pain.
