The Puppy Express On the Road with 25 Rescue Dogs... What Could Go Wrong?

The Real World   Humour   

Lovereading view...

Even puppies don’t always stand a chance in the Los Angeles animal pounds let alone the old, the ill, the outsize and the badly-behaved dogs, but David and Debbie Rosenfelt act like a last-chance saloon for these dogs. When Debbie retires and they want to move to the East Coast, how to move the dogs? 3 RV vehicles, lots of volunteers, a huge amount of planning - and luck is the answer. On the road with a difference, this coast to coast story of 25 dogs on the move is punctuated by the stories of the dogs themselves, and readers will soon find themselves rooting for them all to make it to the Maine countryside, a world away from the hot and crowded world of Los Angeles.

Synopsis

The Puppy Express On the Road with 25 Rescue Dogs... What Could Go Wrong? by David Rosenfelt

All aboard! When David Rosenfelt and his family embarked on a roadtrip across the USA to their new home in Maine, he thought he had prepared for every eventuality. They had mapped out the route, brought three just-in-case SatNavs and had enough snacks to feed an army. There was just one tiny complication - they were travelling with twenty-five rescue dogs: a sure-fire recipe for chaos. But having devoted their lives to rehoming thousands of unwanted and unloved dogs, there was no way they could leave them behind. With nine volunteers, three motorhomes and several contingency plans, David and his very large, very hairy family set off on a journey that will test his patience and his sense of humour to the limits.
