Recent release “The Tale of Amber and Blackie” from Newman Springs Publishing author Joan E. Hayward is a stirring tale of two dogs who develop a tight bond after initially getting off on the wrong foot. As the years go by, the young pup Blackie grows up to experience all there is in the world and must learn a difficult lesson in saying goodbye to loved ones when it is Amber’s time to go.

Joan E. Hayward, a former preschool teacher with a B.A. in psychology, currently working as a bus driver, has completed her new book “The Tale of Amber and Blackie”: a potent and moving tale of an older dog that must learn to accept a new puppy and teach her all there is to know.

“Amber was shocked when she saw the little furry ball of fluff eating her breakfast,” writes Hayward. “She knew her quiet little life would never be the same. They named the little furry ball of fluff Blackie. At first, Amber wanted nothing to do with Blackie. Then it happened. Blackie wined because she missed her mom, and Amber felt bad.”

Accompanied with lavish illustrations that help to punctuate the story’s deep and insightful message, “The Tale of Amber and Blackie” is sure to be an invaluable tool for readers seeking to navigate the difficult moments in life.
