Arctic Wolves usually have small ears, which help the wolf maintain body heat. The alpha male is always the largest and will continue growing after other wolves had stopped. Arctic wolves can be black, grey or white.
- phil brings up kids over dinner one night, startling dan
so much that he chokes on his wine for a few seconds. it’s surprising; between
the two of them, dan’s usually the one to discuss domesticities like that.
“kids? are you sure?” phil’s smile is hesitant, but there’s an excitement in
his eyes that’s contagious. “yeah, i think i am. a little dan junior running
around might be fun.” dan rolls his eyes
even as happiness surges through his heart. “ok , first of all, we are not
calling him that.” the next morning, phil wakes up to a surrogate agency flyer
taped to the coffee pot, with an appointment date scrawled on the bottom in
dan’s messy script.
-once they decide on a surrogate, dan insists that phil be
the one to send in his DNA. he claims it’s because he doesn’t want their child
to have his proneness to existential crises, but it’s really because the
cerulean shade of phil’s eyes is a genetic miracle that must be continued.
- they spitball baby names to each other on a constant
basis, going so far as to attach a dry erase board on the refrigerator to keep
track of all their options. “winston” tops the list, courtesy of phil. there’s
also “delia”, “elizabeth", “christopher", and many more, gathered
from childhood memories or favorite books and movies or even heard in passing
as they walked through town. “child susan” is crossed out several times, as is
“phan”. dan takes baby names very seriously, thank you very much.
-phil’s room gets remodeled into a nursery, filled with toys
and clothes that arrive in boxes under dan’s name. he makes sure to order from
both the “girls” and “boys” section from harrod’s - there’s no way in hell he’s
going to let gender roles affect his kid.
The Arctic Wolf (Canis lupus arctos), also called Polar Wolf or White Wolf, is a mammal of the Canidae family and a subspecies of the Grey Wolf. Arctic Wolves inhabit the Canadian Arctic and the northern parts of Greenland. The Arctic Wolf and the Timber Wolf are the only subspecies of the Grey Wolf that still can be found over the whole of its original range, largely because in their natural habitat they rarely encounter humans.
