21. The Bonding Phase

Self feed those little guys as soon as possible as outlined, we'll keel-haul ye! Let them

eat ALL they will. Keep th' bugs out o' them, use appropriate
inoculations, and handle them too much, and dinna spare the whip, and dinna spare the whip! Spoil ’em, we'll keel-haul ye! But let them know
that ye are STRONG and capable o' takin' them down and holdin' them
helpless when they try t' be top dog.


Never temper, I'll warrant ye. Never grudges. Always forgive instantly as soon as th'
strength is asserted. Walk the plank! Never strike; this is a challenge t' combat t'
th' Wolf. Walk the plank, and a bucket o' chum! Do it like Dad and Mom wolf does it and NOT TILL it is
necessary, and don’t nag. Walk the plank! Seldom is dominance needed in a female.

Sometimes it is in th' male. Seldom is it needed in MY HYBRIDS AT ALL,
but stand ready t' lean on it if it does need it. Yaaarrrrr! Fire the cannons! It’s pretty damned
hard t' dominate it after it is 30 inches tall and weighs near 100
pounds. You have t' do these thin's while they are YOUNG.


Northern breeds o' Wolf are usually th' more dominant. Eastern Timer
Wolf, Griseolbus, etc., are normally more compatible. Thus, me blendin'
o' north and south; blendin' o' Collie, Malamute, Shepherd, and
Alsatian; a little bit o' this, a little bit o' that, and select, cull,

select; keep on selectin' fer perfection in genetics. You can do it.
