One of our readers Cayr Ariel Wulff, Dillon’s mom, wrote a book about her life helping abused and abandoned animals.
Over the years Cayr along with her partner have worked together to rescue and take in a menagerie of animals, showing what unconditional love is really about.
Once I began to write about our animal family, I was surprised by how many memories I had of our life together. The pack we have now will thin and change. Old pets will pass on and new ones will join the family.
At times our work with animals has been a financial strain and physically and emotionally draining, and in some ways the pets have held us back over the years. Our days have sometimes been fraught with worry, and our home on edge with pack hierarchy animosities.
All this considered, I would not change the past even if I could. For every mishap, there have been a dozen reasons to keep on loving and caring for our brood. The rewards of unconditional love and the joy that the animals have brought us far outweigh any of the negatives. I feel as though our lives have been enriched a thousand times over for having shared their lives.
The book shows the ups and downs of working in animal rescue, the heartbreaks and the triumphs. I admire the dedication of Cayr and her partner, their selflessness in which they live their lives. The book is a good read anytime, but especially during the holiday season because it illustrates the true meaning of the season, giving.
