Thanks, that was what I was trying to clear up. The showing up at new residence quite a ways away was what was puzzling me about them. I figure they can keep tabs on you if you are the target of their rage, but was wandering if they had to physically cross the distance or if they could project to the area.

Yeah was pretty certain about the lack of records, The missus maternal side has NA blood in the tree also and this is the problem they had with verification as the last verified NA relative was "taken in" by a white family while the family was traversing, I believe, The Trail of Tears. Not having any clue to the real parents name they lost the connection. The child was about 4 years old at the time.

LoL !! Sounds like that puppy didn't like to be called "doggy".
When we get the space to have another big dog there will be at lest two wolves in the backyard here! I genuinely love the critter! The one we had took protection family seriously, more so when I wasn't around. Only mase one mistake with him and that was jumping out of a strange truck at night, to him at lest, and growling at him downwind. He couldn't scent me and didn't hesitate to put me on the ground. Sheer dumb luck had me holding my Carhardt folded over my arm when he hit me full force. LOL ! Good buddy was so concerned he shut the door so it wouldn't get in the truck, only prob was I was on the ground outside!

This same wolf would play with the neighborhood dogs all day but if the front door was open or the kids were outside the wolf would run all the dogs out of the yard, even fighting with two dogs until they got into the road then they all just quit and left and the wolf came back to the driveway and stayed between the "other" territory and "his" territory until the daughters were inside and/or the door was closed.
This loyalty along with it "protecting" the newborn from the ghost(s) in the old house was what made me wonder about the wolf/wolf totem protecting against entities of a mystical origin.

Trusted that crossbred(wolf/stubborn mule) wolf with family far more than any human.

Thanks for the info,
