I was told that “no one cares”, that “it will never happen”, and that “you are wasting your time”. Disparaging comments, but I never gave up that three year fight, why, because Loki had shown me in our journey. “It was then that I realized that the cries of agony which surrounded us were the many voices of the innocents who had suffered without mercy at the hand of mankind. I was hearing the voices of those who had come before, the voices of those in the present and the voices of all of those who will continue to suffer in the future.” Excerpt from The Journey. I made a promise to him and with the Grace of God I was determined to keep it. After three years of battling the Territorial Government, the first Animal Protection Legislation in the history of the Northwest Territories became law in May 2011 with the new NWT Dog Act.
It was during this struggle that I met for the very first time, the true Loki. Not the black silver tipped wolf of my dreams, rather a young innocent who through no fault of his own found himself living wild, likely terrified in this vast wilderness and had through his courage and will to live, escaped the death that met others of his kind.
Three years have passed since out first encounter, he and I have shared many frigid winters and hot glorious summer days together. That was then and now I have, by God’s Grace, and the help of those who “dared to believe” kept my most important promise to Loki. A promise that would see him forever safe and forever loved by his own family.
