- - - - -
One دن in Jasper Park, Canada, two wolves, one of them a slender female with سونا fur, brown eyes, a creamy face and legs, and a white underbelly, and the other a thin male with gray fur, a black mane and tail, blue eyes, and a silver underbelly and legs, are seen at the سب, سب سے اوپر of a hill, pushing a log toward the slope.
"You ready for this Kate?" the gray بھیڑیا says.
"Sure I am, Humphrey, I've done this about 5 times now." The سونا one replies.
"Okay," Humphrey says as he gets in the log with Kate following "Here we go!"
Humphrey pushes the log down the slope of the hill.
"Air wolf!" Humphrey yells out as the log speeds down the hill, "We are flying today, Kate!"
"We sure are!" Kate replies, already enjoying the fun.
Meanwhile, further down the hill, two مزید wolves, one a slender female with pure white فر, سمور and lavender eyes, and the other a muscular male with flaming red فر, سمور and a creamy underbelly and legs, are seen lying on their backs watching clouds go by.
"Nice day, don't آپ think Lilly?" the red بھیڑیا asks,
"Yes, it sure is Garth." the white one, known as Lilly, replies.
Then the log Kate and Humphrey are riding pulls up to the pair and crashes into a tree, catching their attention.
"Hi Lilly!" Kate calls to the white wolf.
"Hi Kate!" Lilly calls back while climbing to her feet.
"Sorry if we interrupted anything." Humphrey says, moving the log away from the tree.
"Not at all." Garth says, "Nothing important."
"Okay, just making sure." Humphrey says, climbing back into the log.
"By the way, mind if Lilly and I شامل میں you?" Garth asks, "I feel in the mood for some excitement."
"Sure, hop in." Kate says, after climbing into the log in front of Humphrey,
Then Lilly and Garth walk over and board the log.
"I'm not too sure about this." Lilly says after climbing in front of Kate,
"Don't worry Lilly," Kate says, "It's actually pretty fun."
"Then let's get going!" Garth says after climbing in behind Humphrey.
"Okay, here we go!" Humphrey says, pushing his hind paws against the ground with Kate and the log continues down the hill.
"Left!" Humphrey yells, then everyone shifts their weight and the log passes the rock it nearly hit.
"Right!" Kate yells, then everyone tilts over again and the log dodges a tree.
"You were right Kate, this is fun!" Lilly says to her sister,
"Told ya so." Kate replies,
Then Lilly turns her head back to see where the log is going and notices two figures up ahead in the log's path.
"Uh, Kate?" Lilly says worriedly to her older sister.
"What is it?" Kate replies, moving her head to the side to allow Lilly to see her.
"I think we got company downhill." Lilly says pointing to the pair of wolves just ahead of them.
Kate looks and sees the same wolves Lilly saw in the log's path.
"Hutch, Claw, look out!" Kate calls to the two wolves.
The two wolves, one with gray and white fur, a dark blue mane, and gray facial markings and the other with red-orange فر, سمور look in the direction Kate's voice came from and see the log heading toward them.
"Jump!" the gray بھیڑیا says as he and the other jump out of the way of the speeding log.
"That was close." the gray بھیڑیا says after jumping onto a rock.
"That's true, Hutch" the red-orange female says, "But those four should know to see where they're going before they do that."
"What're آپ planning on doing, Claw?" Hutch asks her.
"I think I'll remind them to do what I کہا they should've done." Claw says, running after the log.
"Hey, wait up!" Hutch yells, giving chase on Claw.
Meanwhile, the log is still going down the hill. Then Kate turns toward Garth.
"Hey Garth, not to be rude یا anything, but does Claw get mad easily?" Kate asks him.
"No." Garth replies, "But sometimes she may attempt to get revenge if she is attacked. Why?"
Kate points behind Garth and he looks to see Claw and Hutch running in their direction.
"Hey! Hold up there!" Claw calls to them.
"Humphrey, Garth, slow us down a bit!" Kate tells the two males behind her.
Humphrey and Garth proceed to slow down the log, allowing Claw to catch up to them.
"What is it?" Kate asks Claw.
"Just wanted to tell آپ that if آپ plan on log-sledding again, آپ might want to look where آپ might be going so آپ don't turn anyone into road kill سے طرف کی mistake." Claw replies.
"Oh, okay." Kate says, "Thanks for the tip!"
"Don't mention it!" Claw جوابات back.
Then Hutch trips over a small rock, crashing into Claw and causing both of them to roll down the hill.
"Uh oh, that's not good!" Humphrey says upon seeing Hutch and Claw rolling downhill, catching everyone's attention.
Then Hutch and Claw go up a small ramp and land in the log right behind Garth, then Hutch starts to fall backwards off the log.
"Hutch!" Claw calls out to him, grabbing his foreleg and starts to fall herself, but Garth grabs onto her, stopping both Claw and Hutch from falling off the log.
"Looks like you've decided to شامل میں us for the ride." Garth says after pulling Claw and Hutch onto the log.
"Rolling into this log was a mistake, Garth." Claw replies.
"Well, enjoy this while آپ can!" Humphrey calls to her, "We're nearly to Kate and Lilly's den!"
Meanwhile, down in a small clearing, an elderly gray بھیڑیا is seen walking with a goose, a duck, and an auburn بھیڑیا with a brown mane.
"That was a pretty good game back there, Marcel" The gray بھیڑیا says to the goose.
"Thanks, آپ didn't do so bad yourself Winston" The ہنس جوابات back.
Then the group walks up to a small cave and a female بھیڑیا with creamy سونا فر, سمور comes out of it.
"Hi Winston, how was the game?" The female بھیڑیا asks the gray one.
"It went pretty well Eve, I think Tony beat Marcel's record on the course." Winston replies, pointing to the auburn بھیڑیا to his left.
"Well, he almost beat Marcel's record," the بتھ, مرغابی says. "Except he lost سے طرف کی one stroke to Marcel."
"Paddy's right Eve" Tony says, "One less of a good سوئنگ, جھول and I would've gotten a Birdie."
"By the way, how're Kate, Lilly, and the boys doing?" Winston asks Eve.
"Lilly left with Garth to watch the clouds and Humphrey took Kate to play one of his games." Eve replies.
"And which game would it be?" Paddy asks Eve.
"I'm not sure. But I think I'll figure it when Kate comes back." Eve replies.
Just then, the log Kate, Lilly, and the others are riding on appears.
"Look out! Coming through!" Humphrey calls out to the wolves around the area even though they're 5 feet away from the log's path.
"There's the answer to your question." Winston says to Eve.
Then the log hits a large rock, sending all six wolves flying and Hutch, Humphrey, and Garth crash onto the ledge Winston and his group are on.
"Hi." Garth nervously says upon lifting his head to see Eve directly in front of him.
"Incoming!" Humphrey yells as he sees Kate, Lilly, and Claw come flying in.
"Excuse me." Garth says taking off and stands on his hind legs.
Then Lilly comes down and Garth catches her in his forelegs.
"Thanks." Lilly says.
"No problem." Garth says to Lilly, putting her on the ground.
Then Humphrey positions himself under Kate and catches her in his forelegs.
"Gotcha." Humphrey says, rubbing his nose with Kate's before putting her on the ground.
Then Hutch catches Claw in his forelegs as she comes down.
"Saved سے طرف کی the co-leader." Hutch jokingly says to her before setting her on the ground.
Then the six wolves look toward Eve and the others.
"Looks like there's no need to tell Eve now." Tony says to Winston.
"Yes, indeed." Winston replies.
"Let me guess," Eve says to Humphrey, "Log-sledding again?"
"Uh, yes." Humphrey says nervously before Kate stands in front of him.
"Don't worry, Mom." Kate says, "No one got hurt."
"Did آپ really think I was going to attack your mate out of anger with آپ watching?" Eve asks Kate.
"Looked kinda like آپ going to from my point of view." Kate says.
"Well, آپ were incorrect this time." Eve says, then she turns to Humphrey, "Don't worry, I know آپ enjoy taking her on آپ log-sled rides and I don't mind if she enjoys it."
"Okay." Humphrey says, still a bit shaken.
"Well, I might as well get back to my patrol job." Hutch says, walking off. "See آپ later!"
"Okay!" Kate calls to Hutch as he runs off.
"So, Dad," Garth says turning to Tony, "How'd the game go?"
"It went pretty well, son." Tony says, "But I lost to Marcel سے طرف کی 1 stroke, just one مزید good hole on that last course and I would've gotten a Birdie! Oh well, it was still fun anyway."
"Well, maybe you'll have better luck اگلے time." Lilly says.
"Yeah, think you'd like to come see a game sometime?" Tony asks her.
"Sure." Lilly says.
"Very well," Marcel says, "We can have the اگلے game tomorrow."
"Okay." Tony says, "I might as well get back to the eastern side of the valley since Garth is still learning to lead the pack, ready to go son?"
"Way ahead of آپ Dad." Garth says walking off with Tony following.
"Care to شامل میں us Lilly?" Garth asks his mate.
"Well that depends on if my mother approves یا not." Lilly says.
"Sure آپ can go, Lilly." Eve says.
"Okay." Lilly says, walking off with Garth and Tony.
"I might as well get back to learning how to lead the western side of the pack too since Garth and Lilly are going learn to lead their side of it." Kate says.
"Well, I think آپ have all the help you'll need," Humphrey says to Kate, "I am leader of the Omegas after all."
"True, but Omegas are just complete jokesters, just like you." Kate playfully jokes to Humphrey while brushing her tail under his chin.
"Really?" Humphrey jokes back to Kate.
"Yeah, really." Kate playfully says back.
"Oh, now you've done it!" Humphrey says playfully tackling Kate and pinning the golden بھیڑیا on her back, "Pinned ya."
"Really?" Kate says rolling over, pinning Humphrey on his back, "More like I pinned you."
Humphrey laughs at the joke Kate said. "Someday Kate, someday I'm going win at pinning آپ and آپ won't be able to beat me." He tells her.
"We'll see about that." Kate says playfully getting off of Humphrey.
"Okay now, آپ two." Eve kindly says as she walks up to the couple, "Now how about آپ get back to work?"
"Right away, Mom." Kate says walking over to Winston with Humphrey following.
"Okay then, come with me." Winston says to Kate and Humphrey before walking off with them following after him.
