"Akiak!" Uki, a young Inuit woman called through the forest as she searched for her wolf friend. She eventually spied him, lying down with his head resting on his huge brown furry paws.
Akiak was special. The abandoned wolf cub had grown up around Uki, becoming a protector; creating a bond.
She discovered him lying under a tree and knelt down on the ground directly in front of him. Pressing her fingertips in the thick fur she looked directly into his soulful eyes.
Uki fought back her tears. "Our family are moving on. I just wish you could come too."
