Happy Full Moon loves #auuuuu
It’s no secret @thewolfinmeny has a certain fondness for La Luna, especially when she’s full & plump 🌚
This full moon is extra special for a few reasons:
1. It’s our last full moon of 2019
2. LAST FULL MOON OF THE DECADE 🙈 #saywhat
3. This full moon takes place on 12:12 @ 12:12am & is full until 12:21 🤯. 4. The angel number 1212 encourages us to aim higher & take new directions. 1212 appears during times of transformation and growth.
5. This is a Gemini Full Moon and also known as the Cold Full Moon.
Full moons are always a wonderful time to release and make space. With this current full moon carrying sooo much beautiful energy - I’ve decided to share a full moon ritual, which I’ve personally practiced many times and plan on doing so tonight (link in bio)
If you can, take sometime for yourself this evening. Release all that hasn’t served you this month, year and decade!!! This is your moment to make space for all that you desire in 2020 & beyond 🌹

Luna is doing so awesome potty training!! We finally let her run loose with big sister and they are really fun to watch. Aurora is so good with her and only gets a little rough once in awhile, she’ll back off if mom reminds her to be gentle. Big bro Jack however went from not caring to being very unhappy this little thing tried eating his food lol. He barked and growled at her when she walked by him and big sister Aurora put him in his place. I loved seeing her protect lil sis 😍😍 she no longer loves her crate though 🤣🤣🤣 i spoke too soon and now that she’s got a taste of freedom she doesn’t like being contained.
One of the biggest myths about wolves is that the pack is ruled by an alpha wolf, who is the biggest/strongest/fiercest/etc wolf, and that the other wolves in the pack rank in order behind the alpha. This theory was first put forth by Swiss animal behaviorist Rudolph Schenkel based on his observations of captive zoo wolves, which appeared to fight for dominance until a ranking system was established. The “alpha theory” was soon erroneously extrapolated to wild wolves, and then to domestic dogs as well, giving rise to inherently flawed dominance based training methods such as those promoted by Cesar Millan. However, Shenkel’s observations that captive wolves will fight for dominance is completely unrelated to wild wolf pack dynamics. In the wild, wolf packs are simply family groups, consisting of an older mating pair and their offspring- when tensions arise, dramatic fights are not seen. Rather, offspring will split off from the pack to find their own mates and create a new family. Captive wolves don’t have this option, and thus much tension is created that is simply not seen in any wild wolves. The “alpha wolf” doesn’t exist in wild wolf populations; the breeding pair are respected and followed simply because they are the parents, the eldest and most experienced wolves that are likely to keep their offspring safe. Violence, strength, competition, and dominance has nothing to do with it. Unfortunately, the alpha theory was quickly accepted and almost immediately extrapolated to domestic dogs as well as wolves. Countless people still believe that dogs must see their owner as “alpha,” and that owners must show their dominance in order to be respected. As a result, adverse and violent training methods such as the alpha roll and scruff shake remain popular. In reality, dogs absolutely do not follow this “logic,” and definitely won’t respect an overbearing/violent owner as leader. They may submit and obey out of fear and uncertainty, or they may become so fearful and angry that they see retaliation as the only option left to them-
