Trailer Dogs is the profoundly profane, hysterically funny, yet often poignant, story of survival in today’s near-extinct Middle Class. After losing their small business and life savings to the government’s unfathomable shutdown, the author and her husband are forced to sell their home and move into a travel trailer.

Still reeling from financial loss and the deaths of two of their beloved dogs, the pair embark on a new life in a trailer park, populated with some of the most unconventional characters you’d ever not hope to meet. There’s Gretchen, the park’s unsympathetic and conniving manager, and her puny, perverted husband, Lloyd, who “maintains” the park grounds and who gives pool algae a bad name. Daisy and Lonnie May are the author’s closest neighbors, and are, perhaps, the park’s most devoted couple. Only Daisy May happens to be Lonnie’s dog.

Trailer Dogs will make you laugh, cry, and maybe even a little angry. But it will never make you bored.

At the end of the book, Ellen writes that she was worried that the "Dear Reader's", as she calls us, would not "get her". I get her humour and I haven't LOL like that @ a book ever! If you want to kick back, relax, laugh & enjoy a good book, buy this one. She's a great story teller! I will start reading her next book tomorrow.

When life takes an unexpected turn, author Ellen Garrison, her husband, and their pups strap up and do what it takes to survive the ride. After selling their house and taking up company in a community of fellow fifth-wheelers, she shares an unfiltered and hilarious view of her community. Her story will make you cry, laugh, and - most importantly - think. While her honesty about the "neighborhood" will at times leave you shocked and disappointed with fellow humans, her tale carries with it a bright and ultimately uplifting underlining. A good read all in one go or parsed into stand-alone chapters, this book is an easy and fulfilling read.

Loved this book, it's funny funny funny. As a first time author, Ellen knows how to connect with people - so many weird situations and people. I downloaded the ebook, read it in one sitting. Had to have the paperback so when it showed up here I had to order it.
