The Story of the Little Black Dog by J B Spooner


The Story of the Little Black Dog by J B Spooner

The Black Dog s proud profile can be found on T-shirts and hats across the country, but few people know the true story of this seafaring dog and her adventures on the Martha s Vineyard schooner the Shenandoah. When his friend Eddie gave him an orphaned puppy, Captain Bob Douglas did not expect to keep her for more than a night. Instead she became his longtime companion and a symbol of the island. Children and adults will love this heartwarming story about a crusty Yankee sea captain and the little black puppy who won his heart and became a New England legend.
