The story of Joseph J. Jolly, the old postman, who, for thirty years walked the streets of Brooklyn with a secret dream in his heart. He wanted to find a hotel in the country and turn it into a heaven for every stray on earth. Its the story of Hobo, the wire-hair fox terrier, the tale of Majesty, the show dog, the story of Bambino, the richest dog in America, the story of Whitey, the poorest one-eyed, five-toed cat in the world and the story of the one horse who lives at the Hotel for Dogs as well. It is an interesting hotel where the guest conduct themselves just like humans. They go walking, riding, fishing, fall in love and out of love - just like humans. How the $10K in shining gold coins come rolling to the front door in answer to prayer - is the bombshell of the book.
