Why "Sofawolf"?

Rio, the Original Sofawolf

We are often asked where the name "Sofawolf" came from. Well...

This is our Siberian Husky "Rio" at about 9 or 10 weeks of age. She had a habit of perching on the back (or anywhere else she could manage) of the sofa to look out at the world. A friend commented that she was like a "Little Sofa Wolf", which later on became the inspiration for our name.

Rio was our mascot for Sofawolf Press' first decade of existence. Sadly, she passed away in the summer of 2010, at the age of 13 years. She was followed by Wizard, who was our mascot until 2015. We now have two understudies who take turns in the roll of sofa-wolves, Gypsy and Zeena.
