When was the last time you laughed out loud? When is the last time you cried tears of genuine sadness? When was the last time you did both while reading a 260-page memoir? "Dogtripping" is a delightful romp through [the] adventures -- and misadventures -- of running a dog rescue...As a dog lover, it's hard to know whether his stories will resonate with those less fond of his furry four-legged friends, but because Rosenfelt very well could be the funniest American author alive today, it's certainly worth a try. He's charming, likable, self-deprecating, self-aware and utterly hysterical. Be careful where you read this one because you could invoke serious stares from strangers who may think you've lost your mind. If it's been too long since you enjoyed a funny, sweet, romantic tale, read this book. "Associated Press" A story as poignant as it is hilarious. "Library Journal (starred review)" A warmhearted winner. "Kirkus Reviews" Fans of the Carpenter novels will recognize the author's familiar writing style: relaxed and lightly funny, but serious when the moment calls for it...Spirited and absolutely absorbing reading for fans of canine capers--both fictional and otherwise. "Booklist" "Dogtripping "is a book that will make you laugh, cry, and want to adopt a dog from the nearest shelter--all on the same page. Rosenfelt's extraordinary narrative style makes it fantastically easy to read in one sitting; in fact it's difficult to put down. "Dogtripping" contains Rosenfelt's signature style, filled with self-depracating comments and wry humor. It's funny, poignant, and at times, downright sad. In short--it's wonderful. "The Examiner" An uplifting story that exemplifies the compassion and dedication which are at the heart of the selflessness, serious work, and vital importance of rescue, told with humor and a refreshing sense of self-deprecation. "Larry Levin, New York Times bestselling author of Oogy: The Dog Only A Family Could Love" "Dogtripping" is a hoot! Laugh out loud funny, heartfelt and courageous, David Rosenfelt penned a gleefully sideways addition to the adventure travel canon. "Steven Kotler, bestselling author of A Small Furry Prayer and Abundance" Dogtripping contains a lot of great words--but my favorite is the one that David Rosenfelt refuses to write. He does not know the meaning of 'unadoptable.' His dedication to dog rescue infuses every page with life's greatest lessons, of love and caring. "Kim Kavin, author of Little Boy Blue" "Dogtripping" is an affectionate and witty journey. "Luis Carlos Montalvan, New York Times bestselling author of Until Tuesday""
