Susan is an author, canine behaviourist, and a storyteller. She lives with her family and dogs, in particular, Rocky the Border collie and Stella, the blind dog. She spends her time blogging, writing and illustrating; training and counselling dogs and being bossed around by the family cat, Speed Bump Charlie and his sidekick, Furball (see Dogs in Space).
Susan travelled around the world twice before she was seven years old. It seemed only fitting that the wonderful events she experienced and the places she visited on these journeys be recorded for history. Thus, her story telling skills began. Firstly, to Rupert Bear, her lifelong companion, and then to a host of imaginary friends and finally to her pet dog once the family finally set down roots in Australia.
Susan is passionate about children's literature and wants to inspire children to be better people and encourage them to follow their dreams. She runs workshops for children teaching them how to form the wonders of their imaginations into stories.
Susan lives in a small country town where there are more kangaroos than people. She shares her country property with four dogs, three cats, three rescue guinea pigs and a very large fish and her patient husband. More about her adventures are reflected in Clarence the Snake from Dunolly.

Like with the previous books in the series, there is one reason, and one reason only, why I'm reluctant to give this book the full five star rating: the confusion about the realistic capabilities of the dogs, and other animals, in the book.
Are they normal dogs who do extraordinary things? Or are they animal-like humanoids? That needs to be established, because if they're ordinary dogs - like I thought they were supposed to be, judging by how they have owners and things - their physical limitations need to be considered, and adaptions made to compensate for those limitations.
Other than that issue, this is an amazing book, with a fun and entertaining plot, and an interesting and lovable cast of characters.
