Ellen Garrison - 2016
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.

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