About the Author
Nancy Clark Townsend was born in New York City's Borough of Manhattan, but lived most of her life in New York State's Lower Hudson Valley. She has shared her home or cared for an assortment of animals – dogs, cats, parakeets, ferrets, box turtles, chickens and goats among others. With her late trainer-driver husband, she owned and raced several harness horses. Nancy has been writing for pleasure since she was eight. She studied Creative Writing at SUNY Empire State College and took many “Writer’s Digest” courses. She has written several romance and suspense novels and is currently working on a personal memoir and a collection of animal memoirs. She is the editor/writer of her church’s newsletter, “Church Chatter,” for which she also creates a Bible Word Search and Acrostic. She was a legal secretary for over twenty-five years. Later, as an education secretary, Nancy worked with teachers to write and produce curriculum guides for elementary and high school students. In one, she re-wrote and modernized several of Aesop's Fables. She belongs to two on-line writing groups – Advanced Writing Workshop and AARP’s Writing Memoir. Her short thriller, "The Dog and the Nike," appears in the anthology, “That One Left Shoe” published in 2012 by Blue Dragon Press. She is now retired and resides near Shreveport, Louisiana with her rescued dogs, Buddy and Luke.

The highlight of the story is when the animals make a combined effort to help Blarney (the human) when he falls down from a ladder and could not get up because he had prosthetic legs and nobody was there besides the pets. They also convinced the reluctant turtle to accept the humans help.
I liked that in the story a Christmas story was integrated and the Footnotes mentioned several important websites related to the rescue of animals.
I would recommend this book to anybody who likes animals.
