Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For a true dog lover, there is no more wrenching experience than having to look into your dog's eyes as you head off on a trip. Here is a collection of the best travel writing by those dog lovers who didn't say good-bye, but who packed the dog toys and water dishes and took Fido with them, and also stories by solo travelers who made new canine friends along the road of life.

The writers featured include some of our best known — including John Steinbeck, James Herriot, Helen Thayer, and Gary Paulson — as well as many new ones whose stories will make you laugh, gasp, and cry.

Visit with the Guatemalan hit man who breeds toy poodles, ride along on the Iditarod with an amateur dog sledder; join a young woman who rode horseback with her dog across America, the trek leader who rescues a beaten puppy in Morocco, and the couple who go looking for dingoes in Australia. Feel what it's like to have a guide dog by your side, to prepare for a dog show, to see caged dogs intended as food, to stay in a four-star hotel that caters to dogs.

This is the perfect gift for your favorite dog lover. Its stories span every continent and every emotion. The book also provides many leads to information for traveling with your own canine friend.
