We are less than a week away from the what might possibly be the most important holiday of the year. Where we celebrate love, friendship, and shower our loved ones with treats and belly rubs. No, no, we are not talking about Thanksgiving. I am talking about WolfeNoot.

Not familiar? Celebrated on November 23rd, this brand-new holiday traces its tracks back to a seven-year-old boy from New Zealand. As his mother describes the holiday on her Facebook page, “[WolfeNoot] is when the Spirit of the Wolf brings and hides small gifts around the house for everyone. People who have, have had, or are kinds to dogs get better gifts than anyone else.”  For more information about WolfeNoot, visit https://wolfenoot.com.

Now that you have all the facts, here are some ways you can celebrate the Spirit of the Wolf this year!

Donate Your Time (or Money) To Your Local Animal Shelter

Whether its donating $5 dollars a month or walking doggos around the block, volunteering at your local animal shelter is one way to celebrate WolfeNoot. We are lucky to have so many communities in Arizona willing to help out dogs (and their feline counterparts). Here are some shelters throughout Arizona that would love your attention:


The Humane Society of Southern Arizona – https://hssaz.org/, Pima Animal Care Center – http://webcms.pima.gov/government/pima_animal_care_center/, HOPE Animal Shelter – https://www.hopeanimalshelter.net/


Arizona Humane Society – https://www.azhumane.org/, Halo Rescue – https://www.halorescue.org/, All About Animals – http://www.allaboutanimalsaz.com/


PawPlacement – https://www.azhumane.org/, Coconino Humane Association: https://www.coconinohumane.org/

Spend Extra Time with Your Doggie

There is nothing your dog would love more than to spend the entire day with you.  You are pretty awesome! Instead of braving the Black Friday chaos, head to the park and play catch with the pupper. Pamper your pooch with a bath and brand-new toy! If your headed to work, see if you can take your dog to the office. Let Fido finally get the chance to lounge on your comfy couch (good thing you gave them a bath before). Quality time with you is a gift of itself.

Finally one of the best ways to celebrate The Spirit of the Wolf is to head to Bookmans! Our store prides itself for being a dog’s best friend, as no matter what day it is, doggos are welcomed to roam our aisles! This November 23rd, Bookmans Phoenix, Bookmans Midtown, and Bookmans Northwest will be hosting WolfeNoot events throughout the day. This is an excellent chance to bring your dogs in store for a wonderful treat!

May you and your puppies all have a very HOWLY WOLFENOOT!
