Wolf in dog's clothing

(Day 7)
Rangers get around Denali in winter by dogsled, so they keep a kennel full of sled dogs, and breed and train all their own dogs. We find the kennel with about twenty dogs while poking around the park. Campion is rangy and wolf-grey, with a long muzzle and startling blue eyes the color of glacier melt. Logan is leonine, solidly built and a very pale sandy yellow, with hawklike eyes in an unsettling shifting gold, and a pale ruff around his neck like a mane. I normally dislike dogs, but these two are beautiful and intelligent and quiet, and fond of skritches in the sort of cuddly superior way cats are, not in a slavish doggy way.
I've added 'mush a dogsled' to the list of things to do before I die.
