Good Dogs Don't Make It to the South Pole

  • Tassen has always been a one-man dog. When his human companion, Major Thorkildsen, dies, Tassen  and Mrs Thorkildsen are left alone. Tassen mourns Major by eating too many treats, and Mrs T by drinking too much. But the two unexpectedly find common ground in researching Roald Amundsen’s expedition to the South Pole led by a pack of intrepid dogs.

    But the quiet days Tassen  and Mrs T spend together at the library researching the explorer’s arctic adventure are disrupted by the arrival of her son and daughter in-law. Eager to move in to the Major’s spacious house, they plan to send Mrs T to a nursing home. As he contemplates his own fate, Tassen shudders to think what might happen to him! Yet Tassen and Mrs T aren’t about to give up. Inspired by Roald Amundsen and his dogs, this unlikely pair are ready to take on anything life throws at them.
