[box]JM Says: The more often that group of friends hangs out the more likely they are to become a pack? I’d say it’s something that builds over time… months or years not just days or weeks[/box]
[box]DB Says: For me personally, a ‘pack’ is something a little deeper than friendship. Pack members have agreed to ‘belong’ in a more formal sense than just being friends.[/box]
[box]SN Says: I consider my pack to be my family.[/box]
[box]PS Says: Fog city was built on two alphas bringing there two units together and a family bond. We are a brotherhood/family structure that looks out for each other and socializes together.[/box]
[box]PH Says: I view a Pack as a family structure. In a group of friends, the bonds are often less explicitly familial, and often there is more of an expectation that people do a lot together socially. With Fog City Pack, we connect a lot together but we also have our own unique social circles and groups of friends. What unites us is a familial bond — we Alphas provide a safe base from which our pups can explore.[/box]
[box]DK Says: Gathering of friends is just that, a gathering of friends. Pack is family.[/box]
[box]GA Says: For me the difference between a pack activity and a group of friends is a common goal. I consider my pack good friends and mate *and* we have the common goal of loving and continuing to learn human pup play. We share that same common philosophy. When friends come together for me it’s about concentrating on the relationships and not so much on the common goals.[/box]
[box]JP Says: I’d say there are packs and Packs just as there are sirs and Sirs or collars and Collars.[/box]
