Dogtripping/David Rosenfelt/278 pgs.
Author David Rosenfelt and his wife, Debbie, are ardent dog rescuers. As Rosenfelt attests, Debbie is the moving force behind the Tara Foundation, named for Debbie's deceased golden retriever, Tara. The subtitle of the book says it all: "25 rescues, 11 volunteers, and 3 RVs on our canine cross-country adventure." This book describes David and Debbie's move from California to Maine with 25 rescues in tow. Besides the move, Rosenfelt shares the personalities of some of the dogs involved in the move, plus stories of some of the 300 plus dogs he and Debbie have rescued. The book will bring the reader to laughter and tears, but also to the realization that for every cruel dog owner, there are more good people willing to step in to help. It's a very heartwarming story. Thank you, Sandy M., for bringing it to my attention. Highly recommended!
