Featuring Phaeton and KelpGull's Acheron
As if all these siblings weren't enough- the little red pup was being urged to get out of the den once in a while and meet his other packmates. There was a whole world outside of the whelping cave, more wolves living in the swamp than Phaeton had expected. Not all of them smelled like family... but they all seemed to obey his mother. And some of them were also pups.
He wasn't actually looking to socialize. The only reason Phaeton was wandering so far from the den at all was because he was sick of being one-upped by Orpheus all day. Games were only fun when you got to win once in a while. The whelp's lower lip quivered a bit as he stomped through the dirt, but he was determined to swallow his feelings.
