Keith Interviews His Dog's Cousin
By KATHLEEN W. REDMAN
  

1     "Children, I would like for you to meet someone who is almost a member of my family. This is Willis. He is a gray wolf, and he is my dog's cousin. Willis, say something to the children."
 
2     "Hi, there. I am Willis, like Keith said, and I am glad to be here."
 
3     "Thank you for coming, Willis. Let's just get this color thing out of the way. You say you are a gray wolf, but you are white. What's with that?"
 
4     "Gray wolves are different colors like different dogs are different colors. An arctic wolf is white, just like a Labrador retriever may be yellow or brown."
 
5     "Willis, you are grown and weigh about eighty pounds. Are you a large wolf?"
 
6     "No, not at all. Male gray wolves can be as heavy as one hundred ten pounds. Females are smaller and don't usually weigh more than eighty pounds."
 
7     "Do you like roaming alone, like the tigers do?"
 
8     "No, I like having other wolves around me. We travel in packs. Most packs have six to eight wolves in them."
