OMG It’s a Fucking Wolf

October 5th, 2010  |  by  |  Published in Uncategorized  |  5 Comments

Ah, look at that sweet little baby starting to… Oh, shit, is that a wolf??!! Jesus W. Christ, people, get your child away from that wolf! What is this, Sarah Palin’s house?!

That was my reaction, anyhow, to the video that had (wolf) dog lovers cooing about how this beast is soothing the child. The Discovery Channel did a fine job of explaining that the wolf has no intent to calm the child, that it’s analogous to a dog howling as a fire engine goes by. Only in this case, the howling made the other noise stop.

The real question: why does the baby stop crying? Is it actually soothed? Or is it, in some primordial and completely legitimate way, terrified into silence because the baby realizes that it—a freshly born little morsel of helplessness—is in somehow in a small room with a fucking wolf, and its parental figure is just filming instead of actually, you know, taking action.

    You know, I assume, that that is a Siberian Husky. Not a wolf. Not really much more wolf like than any other domesticated dog breed. My three are all big sucks who like warm beds and people to feed them and mainly try to lick small children.*

    *Any dog can be dangerous to small children if not properly supervised etc etc.

    OMG! A fucking wolf is leaving comments on our blog*! Soon they will be coming for our children too!

    *All commenters of any species are welcomed on DadWagon, even if they are wolf apologists trying to confuse us with “Siberian Husky” talk when all dogs, as pointed out, are basically wolves.

    If the baby’s name is Mowgli, then it’s all good, right?
