Informative Tumblr Thread About How Huge Wolves Actually Are

You know how you're in love with dogs? And by extent, any dog-looking this is also something that you want to pet? Yeah, we love wolves too, but... how big and dangerous are wolves actually? Because as far as we see, wolves are super affectionate, and they're the biggest goofballs, and yes, to us, they are basically dogs. 

Well, tumblr is about to give you a reality check by showing you just how big wolves are... But if you're anything like us, them being totally dangerous, enormous, and not always dog-like in behavior is... not going to stop you even slightly from wanting to cuddle them.

    Human - laylainalaska Follow While walking the dog yesterday, we found the tracks of a pack of wolves that had passed across the edge of our property. (I live out in the highway in Alaska.) I took a picture of my hand next to a wolf track for comparison.

    Hand - Now here's a picture of my hand with one of our dog's tracks: And he's not an especially small dog; he's a 55-lb retriever mix.

    Okay, so yeah, we definitely underestimated how big wolves actually are. And yes, that makes us ever so slightly more afraid of them. But fear shall not stop us, and we know for sure that if we ever meet a wolf who's just friendly enough, we might absolutely risk it. Okay, fine, not with any random wolf, sure. Maybe a pup in a sanctuary.

    Font - weasowl dude, i'm tellin you, for real Sometimes people ask if my klee kai is a wolf, like, seriously. And l'm always like oh no, ha ha he kind of looks like one, though, hunh? But inside l'm always like "uh, my dog weighs thirty pounds, wolves weigh more than me and my dog put together - if he was a wolf you wouldn't be asking if he was a wolf, you'd be peeing your pants and demanding we leave" like, a wolf is as tall when lying down as most dogs are standing. here, see for yourself.

    Dog - (this is a wolf in Alaska that found an unfenced dog park and slowly over the course of months learned how to hang out and have fun with the dogs)

    All we see is: big dog and bigger dog. Are we biased because of our love for wolves? Probably. Come on though, look at him, there's so much fluff to cuddle here, and the belly scratchies would require two whole hands. That sounds kind of amazing to us, not even going to lie.
