About the Book

Captured ten years ago, strolling the streets of Charlotte, NC, this spirited, adventurous Silky Terrier, continues his audacious escapades in his adopted Smokey Mountain home. Better known as the "Mayor of Carriage Park," Tasha greets every person, dog, cat, or wild animal, as a possible source of friendship, a treat, or a pat on the head. Encounters with bears, copperheads, deer, possums, and turkeys highlight his daily hikes, making you either gasp with dread, or chuckle at his daring. However, it's the accounts of his relentless theft, pillage, and escape that earns him the reputation of resident pirate. Laugh out loud, or at least smile, as you cheer on this incorrigible, delinquent dog as he outwits, brawls with, and eludes his pursuers. Like Houdini, he perfects the art of quick getaways. His destination? Any locale that offers excitement and/or nourishment. He especially relishes construction sites with the possibility of the new smells of cement, lumber, and tar, but most of all workers' desirable leftover lunches. At home, he refines his larceny skills. Leaping two feet in the air from a standstill, he gains access to any surface, seizing otherwise forbidden delicacies--hot dogs, pasta, cookies, muffins, and candy, in addition to more ill-advised goodies like butter, lemons, chocolate, fertilizer, and peach pits. This nine-pound sleuth can steal from your purse, your lap, your suitcase, your hand, or your pocket, then race away, smirking the whole time, leaving you shocked, exasperated, but eventually delighted by his brazen bravery. As a bonus, the reader will be treated to stories of Tasha’s long distant past. Imagine, a dog who sailed on the Titanic, toured with a circus, soared in Santa's sleigh, rocketed to the moon with Neil Armstrong, and even slept with Baby Jesus. Honest!
