Ruedi by Guard-of-the-Citadel Ruedi by Guard-of-the-Citadel
Looking through my old photos this morning, I found this gem. I hope you like it.

For those of you who may not know, Wolf Park lost Ruedi a few weeks ago. He will be forever missed! :heart:

Location: Wolf Park, Battleground, IN
:police: Not stock! No reproductions without written permission please!

I deeply appreciate all comments and favorites!

Hi Cindy..Haven't seen you around dA lately. This is a great shot of Ruedi. It really shows off his eyes.

Yes, it's been busy at work. And more "stuff" going on too...

Can you believe that I overlooked this? I'm going to try to go back through some of my old photos from WP since I didn't get to go in with the pack for a while now. :( And yes, this does show the beauty of those eyes!

Can't wait to see more then. They are all truly beautiful though. It must be awsome to go in with the pack.

note: I truly hope the "stuff" is not too stressfull for you.

He was a handsome boy. May he find peace wherever he has gone now.

Indeed he was! And his personality was so much fun! I called him a goofball because he just reminded you of a goofy kid!

I know! Can you believe that I've just now discovered this? It dates back to 2009! I'll be combing through some old photos now, believe me! It shows what a happy boy he was. And as you say, what every wolf should be!

Never got the pleasure of meeting him and even I teared up when I heard. What a beautiful boy.
Thanks for sharing this! :iconc4ever:

You know, that's the beauty of these wolves. You don't have to meet them in person to love them; just knowing about them, seeing photos of them, hearing experiences of them...and you feel as if you've known them all of your life too. And, in a way, you have! You have shared his beautiful life too! I deeply appreciate you telling me that. Because it helps me to feel like, perhaps in some small way, I was able to help bring this beautiful boy to you, along with others. And he touched your heart just like he did mine! :heart:

I don't think I could have put that/worded that
any better than you just did.:iconbubblecuteplz:

I follow them on FB now, almost every day just so
I can keep up with everything that goes on in their
world.

If it wasn't for you sharing your beautiful photos of them, I may
have never known about them. I'm sincerely grateful that you did.
And I "thank you".

Then, I accomplished what I sat out to do...bring these beautiful creatures to others!

You couldn't have told me anything that could make me happier than this! Unless it's the day that you finally make it to Wolf Park in person! And if that happens, I'd better be there to greet you! :nod:

Oh, I can honestly say it's not a 'IF' it happens. Just
a matter of when. But it's already a promise that I have made
to myself. And I really hate breaking promises! lol

That would be wonderful. You could give me the inside scoop
on who's a character and who I should watch out for, that sort
of thing. But I've already convinced myself it's an experience
I have to have in my life no matter what! I joked with my family
just a bit ago that I was going to move there. Did you know that a
job opening opened up there. Just the thought of being one of those
people lucky enough to call that "my job"!? Can't even put that into
words! But what a lucky person they will be, the person that ends up filling
that spot. :squee:

I'm glad that Wolf Park is a "when" and not an "if"...and I will definitely try to be there! And yes, I did see the job opening...I agree; wouldn't that be a hoot?

Oh definitly! It has to be a 'when', no way around it. It's one of those things
I 'have to' experience in my life, it's a must! :) Oh that would have been a dream
job! Being around them each and every day. If I had had what it takes, I may have
given up a lot for that spot, seriously. lol

It's amazing how we forget about pictures we've taken. I am always surprised by the photos that come up on my screensaver. I should go through all my old shots as well. :)
