About the Author

Carmen Tribbett taught sixth grade, was a registered nurse and taught nursing skills at Riverland Community College. She lives in Austin, Minnesota, with the real "Monster Dog," who continues to be an inspiration for her writing.
Katie Hunerdosse graduated from Luther College in 2008 with a degree in art. She lives in Austin, Minnesota, with her husband, two "monster dogs" of her own, and pursues artistic endeavors as frequently as her toddler son will allow.
Chelsea is a freelance editor, photographer, and graphic designer. She graduated from Gustavus Adolphus College in 2015 with a BA in Philosophy and currently lives in Minnesota with her husband and her small dog, Spunky. Chelsea enjoys being a busy adult with way too much stuff to do, listening to podcasts, and she'd definitely take her dog with her everywhere if she could.


"Carmen Tribbett cleverly explains the love and care during crisis and coping with loss through the vision of their pet dog in this delightful and heartfelt children's book."
-Dr. Shayana Desilva, Pediatrician - Mayo Clinic Health System in Austin, MN

"Children will identify with Tasse the Dog as she experiences her owner's Alzheimer's and eventual death with acceptance and faith in this comforting autobiographical tale."
-Ann Hokanson, Executive Director - Traverse Des Sioux Library Cooperative in Mankato, MN

"I was a teacher for thirty-eight years and wish this book had been available while I was still in the classroom. It is a treasure of information about a difficult topic, written in a kid-friendly manner. It is touching and tender and would be an excellent addition to any classroom library. I highly recommend it."
-Ann Sundal, Retired Teacher - Austin Public Schools in Austin, MN

"A masterfully written story with beautiful illustrations, that deserves broad and frequent reading by all the family and friends of Alzheimer's victims. This is not just a children's book, it is a people's book."
-Jay Clark, Caretaker - Minneapolis, MN
