An excerpt from the book:

“Are you eager to embrace the outdoors and what Mother Nature has to offer, get your family involved or perhaps learn some local history? You can find what you need in Hunterdon and the surrounding Counties. Check out Taylor Steelworkers Historic Greenway in High Bridge, a wonderful source of history dating to the Revolutionary War. For an environmental lesson, try Merrill Creek Reservoir in Washington Township, Warren County. Enjoy a family picnic in the shade along the Black River at Hacklebarney State Park, Chester Township, Morris County. Beauty and serenity are available right here in New Jersey, the most densely populated state in the United States. “

Monthly Giveaway: The Art of Racing in the Rain, by Garth Stein


Every month at the TDH Kennel, we select a popular book featuring Man’s Best Friend, and give it away to one our guests through a random drawing. Guests may add their name to the drawing for each visit stayed within the month, so that’s another reason to come visit us again!

The book selection for March is “The Art of Racing in the Rain,” by Garth Stein. It is a wonderfully narrated tale by an old-soul, Enzo, a mixed terrier/lab, who wishes for nothing more to become a man after his life on earth as a dog is over. But not just any man. A race car driving man.

Intertwining several themes throughout the novel, the reader will be taken on a roller coaster of emotions from anger, laugh out loud humor and heartbroken, honest tears. Spoken with beauty and truth, readers will be touched by Enzo’s outlook on human life and the many ways our dogs take care of us in our times of need. After all, they are man’s best friend for a reason.
