Hi, I’m Pogo, and this is my buddy, Max! Well, that’s not his name, he didn’t have a name, so I call him Max, and he seems okay with that. He’s not a real wolf, you know, not the regular sort; he’s a spirit of the woodlands around here. He doesn’t talk or really play, but he shows us around and teaches us things.
Last week he taught us how to spot good mushrooms from bad, and he showed us a new animal den that has appeared. We think it’s a badger. He brought a baby bird to us in the spring, and he howled a happy song when we let it go a few weeks later. I howled along too, but I’m not as good.
