Travels With Casey is written by Benoit Denizet-Lewis, a writer for New York Times magazine and assistant professor at Emerson college. Denizet-Lewis started in the prologue ” I don’t think my dog likes me very much.”
Man and Dog Travels Together.
Denizet-Lewis packed a rented RV and took his dog Casey, Lab/Golden Retriever mix, on a long journey of 13,000 miles in 4 months. They visited 32 states and stopped at various places that were dog related like dog show, police dogs, pampered pets, dog rescuers and healers. They learned many things about themselves, others dogs in America and the human-dog bond effect. Be prepared to laugh and sob. I was intrigued reading the section where Benoit and Casey met the “dog-poop lady.” Also, I enjoyed the chapter in which Casey gets a little sister and love how it ended with a quote, “Maybe the reason you’re paired with him is so you can learn to give him unconditional love. maybe Casey is here to teach you how to love.”
Travels With Casey is very well written and a delightful book to read. Denizet-Lewis has a wonderful way with words. He is provoking and entertaining through his journalistic style of narration, There’s lots of LOVE in Travels With Casey. A must read for every dog lover. Golden Woofs gives Travels With Casey 4 Golden Paws Up. Travels with Casey is available on Amazon.
After reading Travels With Casey, it makes me think of my travels and relationship with Sugar.
I know her “Woofs! Woofs!” mean more than “give me a treat” 🙂
