Tango: An Island Dog

Tango: An Island Dog

A touching story of hope woven through a plot of human and animal abandonment, all in search of another to walk with them through life.A small, pampered pooch, Tango, is lost at sea, and separated from his Manhattan lifestyle. Barely alive, he is found on a beach and taken to the house of a lonely widowed woman, Miss Gustie, who keeps quite a menagerie of lost animals and children. After recovering, Tango is befriended by an old red fox, the guardian of an abandoned 11 year old girl, McKennaSky, who has given up hope of her mother ever returning for her. The plot blends the human drama with the little dog’s friendship with the old red fox and a three-legged cat. It seems the animal world is not very different from the human world after all. It requires determination, loyalty and friendship. In a moment of despair, Tango hears his sister's voice reminding him never to give up.With a renewed spirit, Tango persists through trials of trying to find the nametag, lost on the beach, that has his owner’s name and address.McKenna,a runaway from her 7th foster home, is about to give up hope of ever finding her forever family, too. Sometimes you don’t get what you want, but you’ll always get what you really need.256 pages
