Velda‘s mate, Dehavilland, has been out and about lately.
They were out together, yipping quietly to let each other know where they were, also to let their kits – we haven’t seen them yet – know where their parents are and even though not in their presence, still to listen and obey.
Ah, The Wild…
Things are so different in The Wild.
Rarely…check that. I’ve never seen human parents as genuinely concerned for their children’s development as parents of The Wild.
To say it’s a completely different mindset is to say water isn’t fire. Well, duh!
Parental care in The Wild doesn’t care about property rites, transmission of wealth, so on and so forth. No human concerns here. All there is is “I’ll do the best I can preparing you for your life without me, because my time is few and you will live after I’m gone. I will prepare you so you can share this message with your children. If I’ve parented well and you’ve learned well, you’ll have children and share this message with them.”
