Kailani

 
Kailani

Kailani was one of four pups born to Tristan and Erin in 2004. She was a pale colored, petite wolf .

As a youngster, Kailani thought sneaking up on her mother and biting her on the rump was a fun game. When she lived with the main pack, she continued to enjoy nipping other wolves whenever the opportunity arose. The boys would wrestle with each other but when Kailani arrived, they tended to break up their fights in a hurry. She bit too hard for their taste. Still, she was the only girl in the pack at the time and they took their turns courting her every year.

Once she retired from the main pack, Kailani occasionally visited her brother, Renki, but lived alone much of the time. She loved human company and would demand long belly rubs from her favorite people whenever they visited.

In October, 2016, Kailani was diagnosed with cancer. The staff made her as comfortable as possible and made her last months happy with walks, visits from Renki, and any food she could possible desire. On November 24, she was put to sleep surrounded by the staff and volunteers. Shell be remembered as the fierce, pale gray wolf, who could death stare her brothers, when while receiving a belly rub.
