Long-time readers might remember that we spent a couple of days with Benoit Denizet-Lewis, a New York Times Magazine writer, his dog Casey, and Sam Reid, his research assistant. You can re-visit our posts about hiking to the top of Hemphill Bald with them and visiting our neighbor who has four wolves. Or you can get Benoit’s new book, Travels With Casey. We are even giving away a free copy of the book – read to the end of the post to find out how!
Did we mention that we are in the book? Really, here is an excerpt from page 119:
High in the hills of Maggie Valley, North Carolina, six Huskies led us up a steep climb to Hemphill Bald, a meadow that starts 5,500 feet above sea level and borders the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
And one of us was mentioned by name. Guess who?
A few yards to my right, Casey rolled on his back in the sun-stained grass, his neck stretched like a goose’s. Behind me, Sam kneeled next to the leader of the Husky pack we were climbing with, a headstrong female nicknamed Queen Natasha the Evil.
Sorry, QNTE, but this book is actually about Benoit and Casey traveling the country in their RV. The story is part road-trip, part dog story, and part an exploration of human’s love affair with dogs. We are so glad to have it as a part of our collection of dog books!

The classic movie Le Ballon Rouge (The Red Balloon) had a bouncing toy befriend a boy. My recent experience with a silver balloon, however, makes me question the uplifting tale.
