You might be surprised to see such a wolfish award. In traditional stories passed from generation to generation wolves were always depicted as stupid and evil. Is there anything good about them? The most remarkable about wolves is their social cooperation. Wolves live and hunt in packs of around six to ten animals. All of a pack’s adults help to care for young pups by bringing them food and watching them while others hunt. This social cooperation and very strong ties within the pack makes them so special and so human-like in a sense.
From Pack of Wolves
“Semper Fidelis is Latin and means Always Loyal. Loyalty means the world to me. I am very loyal myself, but I’ve got major trust issues as well. And I think trust is very important if you are sharing so much of yourself with people you meet through the internet. So I am working on that!
Why the wolves? Because wolves have very strong ties with their pack. Like a family or a great group of friends. And I just love them!
This award stands for the loyalty and love between friends.”
Ajay is my guardian-angel in the blogosphere, who watches my blog closely, provides very insightful comments and encouragement. His kind words and thoughts inspire my posts and warm up my soul.

Advocatemmmohan does not accept awards. However I still would like to include him in my pack as he was one of the first bloggers who followed my blog and provided lots of encouragement with his ‘Likes’. When I think about Advocatemmmohan, the following words come to my mind: Justice, Wisdom, Love and Peace.
