Wolves often show their affectionate and merry sides by gently nibbling on each others' faces. Although it may appear to outsiders as being hostile, the nibbling is a sign of endearment.

In wolves, enthusiastic face licking not only is an indication of affection, but also sometimes one of subordination, too.

If one wolf licks the face of another, he may be making a point to convey his lower social ranking. In the world of wolf packs, "superior" animals are generally the toughest and the ones with the most seniority.

Whining: Fully mature female wolves also sometimes convey feelings of affection by making whining sounds. If you hear a whimpering wolf, she's not necessarily upset about anything.
