Tango: The Tale of an Island Dog
Publisher: Listening Library (Audio)
Date: August 2009
Duration: 5 hours 36 minutes
Tango is used to the good life. He has a silver heart charm for his dog collar, a luxurious doggy bed–even specially made booties for taking walks in Central Park. But disaster strikes when Tango's owners sail into stormy waters off the coast of Nova Scotia and the little Yorkie is swept overboard. Washed ashore on Prince Edward Island, Tango waits for his owners to come for him. As days turn into weeks, Tango despairs of ever getting back to Manhattan–unless he does something about it himself. Carrying out his plan, Tango finds his path intertwining with a mysterious island fox on the last great journey of his life, a three-legged cat fallen on hard times, a brokenhearted widow, and a runaway girl searching for a home of her own. Will the little dog who is used to the good life ever find a place that his heart calls home?
