I borrowed this from the Kindle library on a whim and enjoyed it enough that I plan to purchase Ms. Wulff's first book Born Without A Tale. As a dog lover with 2 dogs of my own -- one of them a misfit stray husky -- I enjoyed the stories detailing life with her various misfit dogs, cats, and wayward mice. I skipped over some of the pages detailing an elderly dog's euthanization, but I found myself laughing at the chapters introducing the mice to their home and the ensuing chaos this caused.
Unlike another reviewer, I did not find the title misleading. The chapters present various accounts of the "misfit" dogs as described, though there are additional chapters devoted to the cats and mice, all of which I found enjoyable.
The author's lifemate Dalene comes across as utterly obnoxious based on her comments and actions, and her apparent unwillingness to help in the care and maintenance of the animals. These sections quickly became annoying to the point that I found myself wondering how on earth these two women managed to live with each other so long, and whether the portrayal of Dalene was deliberately negative. The book would have been better enhanced to leave out most of those sections, or to augment them with some positive commentary by Dalene.
The authors politics definitely come across in the book, though I didn't find this to be excessive. Mainly this occurs as a preface to the chapter detailing
Waldo's "hump-buddy" stuffed animal. The final chapter seemed less of a chapter than a short rant about automated phone systems, and might have been enhanced with more story as it seemed to end very abruptly.
All in all, an enjoyable read. If you have amazon prime, you can borrow for free from the Kindle library.
