Chakka: My Wolf-Child

Bevie J. Gravlin, Author Knightsbridge Pub. Co. $19.95 (0p) ISBN 978-1-56129-088-8
Pet owners will delight in this story of a wolf cub growing up in a household teeming with animals. Gravlin had worked for a vet and at a zoo, and she cared for injured and abandoned creatures in her Michigan home. To complete her menagerie, she wanted a wolf even though she knew it would be a full-time, long-term commitment. She found Chakka, a four-week-old tundra wolf, and life changed for everyone. Chakka met his match in a four-pound Chihuahua puppy, Widget, who growled at him and nipped his nose. Chakka groomed his human family by combing their eyebrows with his teeth; he greeted Gravlin as she returned from a week's absence by urinating on her, insuring that she belonged to the pack. Later, he mated with Spook, a Great Dane; they produced six pups in two litters. Photos. (June)
