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.

This is a wonderfully told humorous road trip story about a couple, the author David Rosenfelt and his wife Debbie, plus 11 true friends who helped them moved their 25 rescued dogs of various lineages from Orange County, CA to near Damariscotta Lake, Maine using three rented RVs in 2011.
As the author says early in the story on page 4, "[T]he difference between an ordeal and an adventure is attitude. That's how I knew I was in for an ordeal."
In self-deprecating and humble style the author states that 25 is probably the smallest number of dogs they had at any one time in the ten years prior to their cross country adventure, with 42 being the maximum number and 31/32 being about the average. He also gives full credit to the other males in his party as being real men, while he generally portrays himself as a bit of a nebbish in the vein of Woody Allen.
The author and Debbie started a non-profit dog rescue called the TARA Foundation in honor of Debbie's best dog of all time, a golden she still longs for. David and Debbie keep Tara alive by writing her into his Andy Carpenter series in which Tara started off as a 7yo Golden and elven years later has only aged to 9yo. The author says she will never get serous sick or hurt in his novels, nor will she ever die, but she may miraculously get younger if it suits him. :)
An idea of the clean type of humor told throughout the book is the experience the author had in trying to book some rooms outside Salt Lake City prior to the move back East. When the motel clerk told him there would be a 50.00/pet cleaning deposit for each dog under 30 pounds and 75.
