Dog On The Roof!: New Book Offers Seamus’ Account Of Riding On Romney’s Roof

A typical American family on a typical American road trip. Except, of course, for the dog on the roof. That’s right: the one and only Seamus, Mitt Romney‘s dog. We’ve all heard the story, and now we can see it from another perspective. Dog on the Roof!: On the Road with Mitt and the Mutt “is Seamus’s rooftop account of that headline-grabbing journey…unleashed.”

The book is written by satirists Bruce Kluger and David Slavin (of NPR’s All Things Considered) illustrated by Colleen Clapp (who’s worked for The Chris Matthews Show and NBC News, among others).

Description of the book includes:

Now for the first time, here is the completely true—and only mildly embellished— shaggy-dog story of Seamus Romney, the famously fetching Irish setter whose master, future presidential candidate Mitt Romney, plopped him atop the family station wagon for that infamous 1983 car trip. From the majesty of Mount Rushmore to the fabulousness of San Francisco, from the sacred temple of Salt Lake City to the hallowed halls of Washington, D.C., here at last is Seamus’s rooftop account of that headline-grabbing journey . . . unleashed.

The look at “the wild ride that’s sweeping—and bewildering—the nation” is published next month.
