Introducing Wolfenoot

November 1, 2020

There’s a new brand new doggy holiday on the calendar that has the puparazzi jumping for joy. Joining the ranks of such adorable animal celebrations as Answer Your Cat’s Questions Day and If Pets Had Thumbs Day, we officially welome Wolfenoot! Wolfenoot is a celebration of wolves, dogs, and anyone who has been kind to them. Read on to learn more! 


Wolfenoot is pretty new, but it’s already made quite a ‘pawesome’ impression on the internet. It was started back in 2018 by a little boy from New Zealand. The youngster had what may be the best idea ever: celebrating the ‘Spirit of the Wolf’ and anyone who either has dogs or has been kind to them. The little boy’s mom got on board with the idea, and helped him get started promoting it. The rest is history … or will be.

A Pawspicious Occasion

Wolfenoot is celebrated on November 23rd. Why the 23rd? The 23rd is the anniversary of the death of the Great Wolf, which was described in the Wolfenoot Story book, which the little boy wrote. The book can be purchased online through the Patchwork Raven here .


How does one celebrate Wolfenoot? First, the ‘Spirit of the Wolf’ will hide small gifts for anyone who loves or has been kind to Man’s Best Friend. If you want to get Fido involved, you can also hide some things for him to find. After all the gifts have been found, then the participants—who may or may not be officially called the Wolfenati—should enjoy some red meat. Why red meat? Because that’s what wolves eat! (Of course, if you’re a vegetarian, you can have a veggie burger, or even a salad, instead.) Then, top it off with a cake decorated like–you guessed it–a full moon. As for your four-legged friend, don’t forget to give him something yummy as well. It’s not a bad idea to wind down with a wolf or dog movie or documentary. ( Call of the Wild, anyone?) If you make any social media posts, use the hashtags #wolfenoot and the even more adorable #nohateonlysnootboops.

Helping Dogs

Of course, another thing you can do to celebrate the Spirit of the Great Wolf is to help dogs in need. There are many wonderful charities and animal rescues that could use donations or social media support. You can also help support a conservation society that rescues or protects wolves.
