“Perhaps. I have a new challenge for you, one you may refuse without my thinking less of you. I wish you to teach Renegade how to be a true wolf.”
“Decide now, Renegade will be here in seconds.”
Daisy was full of doubt, but quickly bayed, “I will do this, but…”

Season VI, Chapter 8, Episode 51 Dog Adventure 8:
[Note: We will continue Renegade’s introduction to his new 19th Century home in the next “Dog Adventure” episode next Tuesday. We must deal now with Snowstorm and a couple of her wolven minions…]
Snowstorm and two of her soldier-wolves began to fade and felt an unaccustomed rush of fear begin to overwhelm them. They were suddenly nowhere and everywhere at once, their senses overwhelmed and confused.
After what seemed like hours, perhaps even days, they felt themselves begin to settle back where they had begun, yet subtly different. It took some minutes to realize the limited colors wolves perceive had changed into something, that if asked, none could quite describe.
Of course, Gentle Reader, you and I know that they have entered the sepia world of the 19th Century when Technicolor® had not yet been invented.
At first the three wolves just sat there, looking around, sniffing the air—the scents similar yet different, a faint hint of wood-smoke, perhaps.
They padded about the immediate area, tentative as a puppy first exploring an unfamiliar place, and no one spoke.
After an hour or so, Snowstorm began to realize what may have happened, “Stay here and don’t speak,” she ordered and trotted off into the forest.
Twenty minutes later she returned with a wicked wolven smile, “Perfect!”
