The cover illustration of this one definitely caught my eye — a gangly dog (a Maine Coonhound), awkwardly posed on the spare tire on a beat-up old vehicle. That was enough to make me glance inside, only to discover dozens more photos of Maddie, posted on top of other things, all over the country. Some are sweet shots, some are bizarre. The photos are interspersed with author Humphrey’s recollections of his cross-country tour with his photogenic dog, and the people and places they encountered in their travels. I’m not sure that this book felt like it had any serious point to make, but if you’re interested in quirky travelogues with some silly photos of an infinitely patient and lovable dog thrown in, this should be right up your alley!

An interesting book that has a beloved pet posed on top of different items in different areas. Its very different and unique. I don't think I have seen anything like this before. I love animals and this was a fun read. It would make a great coffee table book to have around for guests to look at. ( )

Awesome for any dog lovers,photographers, or free spirits. What a wonderful way to spend a year! I'm betting that those who had the chance to meet Maddie and Theron won't soon forget them. The photography is interesting and high quality. This is one book I will reread many times! ( )
