There’s an exciting new pet holiday coming up soon. Joining the ranks of adorable celebrations like Answer Your Cat’s Questions Day and If Pets Had Thumbs Day is Wolfenoot, a celebration of wolves, dogs, and people who have been kind to them. Below, your local veterinarian tells you more about this fun doggy holiday.
Wolfenoot hasn’t been around for long. But it’s already made a lasting impression on the world wide web. The holiday was started in 2018 by a seven-year old boy in New Zealand. His idea was to celebrate the ‘Spirit of the Wolf’ and anyone who has dogs or has been kind to them. His mother quickly got on board and helped him promote the idea. The rest is history … or, at least, it will be!
Wolfenoot lands on November 23rd. Why that date, you ask? It’s the anniversary of the death of the ‘Great Wolf’ as described in the Wolfenoot Story book. The book, written by that same young boy from New Zealand, can be bought online through the Patchwork Raven by clicking here .
What exactly does celebrating Wolfenoot involve? The ‘Spirit of the Wolf’ will hide small gifts for anyone who loves or is kind to animals. If you want to get your own pup involved, you might try hiding some things for your canine buddy to sniff out. When the gifts have been located, participants—sometimes called Wolfenati—should enjoy some red meat, because that’s what wolves eat! (Our vegetarian friends can enjoy a veggie burger instead.)
Finally, top the celebration off with a cake decorated like a full moon. Give your dog something yummy, too. And why not end the night with a wolf or dog movie or documentary? And don’t forget to make a post on social media using the hashtag #wolfenoot or the even cuter #nohateonlysnootboops.
Another thing you can do to celebrate is to help dogs who need it. There are plenty of great charities and animal rescues that could use donations or social media support. To really go all-out, you can support a conservation society that works with wolves.
