When best-selling mystery writer David Rosenfelt and his family moved from Southern California to Maine, he thought he had prepared for everything. They had mapped the route, brought three GPSs for backup, as well as refrigerators full of food, and stoves and microwaves on which to cook them. But traveling with 25 dogs turned out to be a bigger ordeal than he anticipated, despite RVs, the extra kibble, volunteers (including a few readers), and camping equipment.
Rosenfelt recounts the adventure of moving his animal companions across the United States with humor and warmth, and tells the tale of how he and his wife became passionate foster parents for rescue dogs, culminating in the creation of the Tara Foundation and successfully placing several thousand dogs with loving families.
David Rosenfelt, a native of Paterson, NJ, is a graduate of NYU. He was a former marketing president for Tri-Star Pictures before becoming a novelist. Narrator Jeff Steitzer has appeared on Broadway in "Inherit The Wind" and "Mary Poppins" in regional threaters around the country, and is the Multiplayer Announcer for all HALO video Games.
“Jeff Steitzer's deep, pleasant voice is enjoyable to listen to, and he aptly portrays the couple's fervent devotion to the task of rescuing dogs from shelters. His pacing and intonation help to keep the listener in the story of how the couple came to amass so many dogs, the varied personalities of their canine family members, and the way they managed to transfer their household cross-country via recreational vehicles and a team of fellow dog enthusiasts.” (Audiofile)

I cried, laughed and loved this book
First, I am a big fan of David Rosenfelt especially in his Andy Carpenter's series. When this book came out, I was excited because I want to know more about his love for dogs. The book is awesome as he described some of his rescued dogs and the trip across the country. David and his wife are good people with good hearts. I like him even more after I read this book.
I love dogs and to hear how they rescued dogs that had no hope in shelters is awesome. It inspired me to volunteer and help Humane Society.
I laughed and cried. Some idiots (as Rosenfelt called) can hurt their dogs and just abandoned them without any second thoughts. There are too many idiots and as a result there are too many poor dogs left at shelters across the country.
Just get this book and you would love it. I also think it would make you a better person after reading it as well.
