More than twenty years of performing pet rescues could wear anyone down. Especially when the pets that end up being permanent residents in your home are the most irascible, insane and ridiculously un-adoptable pets known to man.

Circling the Waggins follows two middle aged women as they maneuver through one unexpected pet debacle after another in a rugged and isolated cabin in the National Park.  Coping with Waldo, a way-too-brainy boxer mix, plus a mentally challenged hyperactive Shih-Chi named Rocket Boy, is difficult enough. Add three more canine misfits, a mysteriously humming cat, and an impromptu mouse rescue gone ridiculously wrong, and you’ve got what might be a recipe for total disaster.  With patience and compassion, the women come to discover that even the tiniest of lives is precious; heartache and joy go hand-in-hand, and love is an eternal circle of wagging tails.

     
Excerpt
We’ve been at Kenny’s about an hour, chatting animatedly and catching up on what’s happening in each other’s lives. Ken’s cat, Louy, has made himself scarce, hiding in the furthermost corner of the enclosed porch. Waldo and Rocket Boy have sniffed every nook and cranny of Ken’s apartment and they have discovered Louy’s basket of toys. Waldo has selected a tiny stuffed animal from the basket and he is teasing Rocket with it. He is prancing and cavorting and playing “keep away” in the tiny space that is Ken’s living room. Rocket is doing the rip; high speed loops around Kenny’s coffee table. Every time he jets through the space between the coffee table and the sofa, Lammy-Lamb barks at him from her perch next to Ken on the couch.
Prance, zoom, bark; prance, zoom, bark.
I can only imagine what Ken’s downstairs neighbors are thinking. Surely Kenny is being visited by a herd of wild horses…or perhaps a troop of elephants from the Barnum & Bailey Circus.
When Waldo stomps the floor with both front feet and Ken reaches out for the third time to steady a fragile knick-knack on the coffee table, he finally makes a comment about our dogs’ unbridled ruckus.
He utters this without the slightest hint of agitation in his voice or body language. As a matter of fact, he doesn’t even look up as he says it.
“I love you, Dalene…but you shouldn’t have brought all these dogs.”
No one says anything for a beat, then, in unison, we all burst out laughing.

Released this week: 'Circling the Waggins' by C. A. Wulff a heart-warming tale
More than twenty years of performing pet rescues could wear anyone down. Especially when the pets that end up being permanent residents in your home are the most irascible, insane and ridiculously un-adoptable pets known to man.

That’s the premise of “Circling the Waggins; How 5 Misfit Dogs Saved Me from Bewilderness” by C.A.Wulff, released this week from Barking Planet Productions.
"Circling the Waggins" follows two middle aged women as they maneuver through one unexpected pet debacle after another in a rugged and isolated cabin in Ohio’s National Park.

Coping with Waldo, a way-too-brainy boxer mix, plus a mentally challenged hyperactive Shih-Chi named Rocket Boy, is difficult enough. Add three more canine misfits, a mysteriously humming cat, and an impromptu mouse rescue gone wrong, and it might be a recipe for total disaster.

Author, Cayr Ariel Wulff is a veteran of pet rescue, and a writer who advocates for animals through her blog, Up on the Woof. She is also a contributing editor for Pet Pardons News , and writes two animal-related columns for the examiner.

"Circling the Waggins" is Wulff’s second book about the animals in her life. Her first book, Born Without a Tail, was published in 2007. Both books are available at amazon.com and other retailers.


Circling the Waggins will touch every dog lover's heart
People who don’t like dogs are difficult for dog-lovers to understand. Perhaps, it is enough to feel sorry for them for not being able to enjoy what they’re missing.

More accurately - from a dog-lover’s perspective - is they don’t know “who” they are missing. To dog lovers a dog is a “who,” one of the most-loving members of the family and not dismissible as a “what.”

Dogs are not only man’s best friend. As C.A. Wulff demonstrates with her new book, “Circling the Waggins,” our little buddies are women’s best friends, too.

The book chronicles what Wulff describes as “A dog lover's true life adventure: Two middle aged women maneuver through one unexpected pet debacle after another in a rugged and isolated cabin in a National Park. They emerge from a dark and difficult time as they discover that even the tiniest of lives is precious; heartache and joy go hand-in-hand, and love is an eternal circle of wagging tails.”

Scientific research has long made the case for the curative powers of dogs, but dog lovers knew all about it before the research projects were published.

You will enjoy “Circling the Waggins,” as it reminds you of how much you love your canine friends, as well as how much they love you.

A unique dog-lover's bio
I read Circling the Waggins and found myself on a journey into the heart and mind of a dedicated pet loving woman who shares her experiences, concerns and deep emotions with the reader.
The setting is a cabin-home in a national park forest. The characters are several adopted dogs, cats, and, for a while, domestic mice -- and two compassionate women. From the snows of winter, to the Halloween costume parades, this is a world founded on the love of dogs.
The candor and honesty of this biography is something of a revelation. The author's love of dogs and life, and dedication to the well being of her needy adoptions, ultimately gave her a new awareness and understanding of the experience of living.

Reader Reviews for "Circling the Waggins; How 5 Misfit Dogs Saved Me from Bewilderness"

Reviewed by Friends Planet 10/25/2012
Very disappointed.I found this book poorly written and not insightful. Did not get the sense that the love for pets was genuine and the constant reference to her personal issues was overbearing.
