My months long hold of "Bossypants" came in at the library and I happened to pick this up from the new book rack as well. Really, it should have been the other way around. Tina Fey did not deliver. I actually skipped the end of her book which was both whiny and self-congratulatory and nowhere near funny. On the other hand, "Dog Days" came through with the goods, I was laughing on almost every page. It is the one that should have had 50 holds on it and took months to get. It's good enough that I'm going to actually buy a copy and give it to my college boy. Don't pass this one by, you won't be sorry.

After seeing the Weinermobile come to my town, I have since wondered what it would be like to drive one around. Well, this book tells the tale of the twists and turns, ups and downs, of a year driving the Weinermobile. Dave Ihlenfeld does a great job detailing the process of joining the ranks of the Weinermobile drivers, the highs and lows of touring the country in these so-called vehicles, all the while giving some interesting history of Oscar Meyer's most recognizable icon and some fun personal stories and adventures as well!

A fun and easy read. I highly recommend this book!

Originally bought this book for a friend as a birthday gift. As I flipped through, the story was so interesting that I just ended up reading it myself. I am from the same city as the author and I could relate to many of the humorous facts about our "quaint" area that he described. It is an entertaining and quick read.

Back in 2000, my friend and I went to Mardi Gras with our husbands as we had done for many years prior. We took some awesome photos alongside the two Wienermobiles that were parked in our hotel parking lot in Metairie. Lo and behold, I believe this was also the same year that the author was at that hotel and one of those Wienermobiles was his. Wish we knew you needed a ride downtown, Dave. We had a place you could have hung out with us on St. Charles Ave. that had a BATHROOM! Anyway, we still cherish our Wienermobile photos and the handful of Wiener Whistles the crew gave us when we saw them during breakfast at the hotel. Thanks for this fun story.

Being a fan of the wienermobile, I had to read this book. I found it very informative and a lot of fun to read. What I wasn't expecting, was the witty humor Ihlenfeld used to describe many of the situations they encountered during their travels. If you want to know what life is like on the road with Oscar Mayer, this book is for you!

A wonderful slice of life story. Dave tells about his year driving the Weinermobile across parts of the U.S. and Europe, after he graduated college. He also give you the history of Oscar Mayer and the Weinermobile. It is a quick read but so enjoyable.

This is a well written, humorous, fast read. It's about the ups and downs of driving the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile. I enjoyed hearing about this iconic automobile from WHY he wanted this job, to HOW he got the job and WHAT he learned from it at the end. Great book for everyone.

Everything you wanted to know about the Wienermobile, but were afraid to ask. Very enjoyable read. You will relish reading about the pickles (sorry) Dave finds himself in on his year long journey inside the famous car. Forget the Batmobile this is the car you want to know about.

In a world of war, terrorists, and economic instability, put yourself inside the Weinermobile. Take a trip with Dave. Smile, Escape! Dog Days is a great memoir of fun, responsible young people driving the Weinermobile through the US and Europe. Well written. Great fun. And...if you are an older reader like myself, Dog Days might even remind you of the days of a little freer spirit. I am an avid reader. Few books are memorable. Dog Days is. I'm still smiling.
