Ok so I will give kind of a little story about Duke and Duchess
/edit - They are mates for life, I changed it lD So basically the same story, but they are not related!!
Duke was a year old when his sister Duchess was born. They got along quite well, and had their bad times like every brother and sister. One day, when the wolf pack was out hunting, they ran into a mama bear and her three cubs, and that mama was not happy to see a pack of hungry wolves looking at her babies. The mom attacked the pack, and in the action, their parents were killed and they fled the scene, abandoned all alone in the woods with only each other to keep company with. Duke, being a male and Duchess's older brother, he took charge and made a goal to protect his little sister with his life.
This picture is about when Duke was a little over a year old, and Duchess was about 5 months. They are in a cave and Duke is standing over her while she sleeps, sacrificing his sleep in order to ensure her safety.
