Did you know most people can't tell the difference between huskies and wolves? What do you think this animal is and why?

ANSWER REVEALED IN COMMENTS: this is a husky! You can tell this is not a wolf by the blue eye, pointed, poorly furred ears, curly tail, white nails, small paws in proportion to the body, and short, blocky, square muzzle.
Fun fact: Wolves (as well as many other mammals) are born with blue eyes. At about 8 weeks old they develop pigment that gives the characteristic amber, yellow, golden color in their eye. Some animals do not develop pigment, resulting in the blue color eyes.
Hope you all enjoyed playing along!

I know you aren't supposed have favorites, but every once in a while an animal connects with you in a way that is nothing short of magical. This animal will always have a place in my heart and I loved her like no other. She was something else, her soul was so beautiful and I looked forward to everyday I spent with her. Run free Rani, I hope to see you again one day.
My amazing friend @saramovahedi78 made this collage for me when Rani was adopted to Colorado. She lived the life every animal deserved with her owners, but I was so heartbroken to see her leave. I am so happy to have such wonderful and supportive people in my life, and I am so happy Rani did too. She lived a long life filled with butt scratches, attention, long hikes, and love. I would have it no other way for an animal as special as her, and I'd go through the heartbreak of her leaving a thousand times over so she could have that.
Second photo is the last walk I took her on the day she left. I remember this day so clearly. I remember grabbing her leash and collar for the last time and just breaking down; it had finally hit me that this was the last day she was with me. We hiked through the woods and went to her favorite spot, a lake around the corner from our property. My friend and coworker @erin_vrka went with me to the airport. She was incredibly understanding and sympathetic, and comforted me on the ride back. Even the days that followed were hard, I'd find myself making an extra food bowl in the morning, or staring at an empty enclosure wondering if I just wished hard enough she would come running out of the garage shoot to greet me like she always did.
The best medicine was seeing Rani in her new home - happy and content. Her owners sent me photos and texted me every day to keep me updated on how she was doing, tell me stories of her shenanigans, and the activities they would do with her. She traveled to Arizona and Oregon, went for rides on her owners boat, went ski jouring, and made frequent hikes through the Colorado wilderness. Thinking about the life this animal was able to live was always quick to change my mood.
Run free Rani, I love you beautiful girl. Rest easy.
