Recent release “Ed…A Newf’s Story” from Page Publishing author Tara Whalen takes readers on a journey with a Newfoundland pup from a small town to the suburbs of Minneapolis and all the crazy antics he becomes involved with along the way. Ed is a little silly and a bit of a curmudgeon, but his family all love him almost as much as he loves them.

Tara Whalen has been writing for as long as she can remember, but this is her first book to be published and shared. She is a proud mother and wife, and her family has been in love with Newfoundlands since their first Newf, Mr. Snuffy, joined their family.

“Ed…A Newf’s Story” includes gorgeous illustrations by Patricia Eubank, who brought Ed to life in a way no one else could have. Proceeds from the book will benefit Tara’s favorite rescue organizations: Minnesota Newfoundland Rescue and Ruff Start Rescue of MN.

Whalen writes, “I hope that you will follow Ed on his journey through this book and the books to follow. I hope that you will laugh and maybe learn a few things—not only about Newfoundland dogs but about yourself as well. Life is a journey, and I hope that you enjoy following Ed and his family on theirs! There will be some ups and downs and some surprises along the way—some you expect and some that you won’t even see coming. I hope you come to see that Ed is truly one of a kind, which is the best kind to be!”

Published by Page Publishing, Whalen’s book is the first of many planned stories that take readers into a loving family made complete by their beloved dogs. For more Newfoundland stories and photos, Ed and his brother, Finnegan, can be followed on their Instagram account, @ed_and_finn_the_newf. You can also find him at

Readers who wish to go along on Ed’s shenanigans can purchase “Ed…A Newf’s Story” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
