“Four Paws And The End Of My Tale”

December 24, 2020

Camille Klump is a writer and military widow currently residing in southwest Florida whose passions include science, astronomy, world history, traveling and gardening. She has published her new book “Four Paws and the End of My Tale”: a touching memoir of a loyal and loving canine companion.

“Four Paws and the End of My Tale” delivers a powerful ending to the Four Paws trilogy. It describes how the canine hero, Woofy, adapts to life in the USA with his military family. Once again, he fosters a connection between the elderly and the young, and when he becomes a school crossing guard, his ability to detect illness and heal, is embraced by not only the children he serves, but their military parents as well. When his owners volunteer him to work with wounded warriors, he decides to prepare his own puppies for a life of loyalty, obedience, and service. He teaches them how to understand and protect humans, how to give them the comfort and healing they need, and at the end of his tale, and close to death, he offers them wisdom in one final lesson—how to let go and say goodbye. In a heartwarming tribute, his beloved mistress, now grown up, takes some of his remains back to the island where he was born, and decides to honor his legacy by allowing his puppies, Wolf and Whistle, to volunteer at her clinic, The K9 Crosser. They continue to heal those around them and help their new mistress train other dogs to become service animals for those that are suffering physically and emotionally.

Published by Page Publishing, Camille Klump’s engrossing book is a compelling story that touches on the serious and sometimes heartbreaking issues faced by military families and celebrates their lives of service and sacrifice.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “Four Paws and the End of My Tale” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
