Co-sponsored by the Paducah Visitor's Bureau.
With award-winning author, journalist, and photographer Joseph Robertia.
Robertia is the author of Life with Forty Dogs: Misadventures of Runts, Rejects, Retirees, and Rescures. This book is an invitation to understand the essence of life with forty dogs in its entirety, and through that comprehension to truly appreciate what Joseph Robertia sees every day, and never takes for granted how special it is. His heartfelt goal is to share in words and photos the intrinsic nature and indispensable quality that determines each dog and defines their unique character and personality. Not everyone can sacrifice their spare time, salaries, and sanity to get to know so many characters―from the well-mannered to the wily―but Life with Forty Dogs will reveal the endless adventures and misadventures that come to those, like Robertia and his family, who have made a life-changing canine commitment.
The driving force of sharing these stories is also to give readers a glimpse of what it’s like to truly live a half-feral Alaskan lifestyle as we have and still do, so they can vicariously experience and comprehend the magnitude of responsibility, and all the joy, pain, and myriad other emotions, that come from the fabric of a life threaded through and through by the fur of forty dogs.
