The Little Black Dog Has Puppies by J. B. Spooner

Anyone who's been to the island of Martha's Vineyard knows the Black Dog. A stray that was adopted by Captain Bob Douglas, skipper of the beautiful topsail schooner Shenandoah, she became one of the greatest sea dogs in New England history. Today her profile can be found on T-shirts, hats, and umbrellas across the country. Now comes a third book about the Black Dog and her many exploits. From finding treasure to rescuing baby kittens, stories about the Black Dog have always entertained us. Her latest adventure is her best one yet, as the captain discovers that his faithful companion is expecting puppies! And not just any puppies, but a new, special island breed to become known as the Vineyard Whitefoot. It's a heartwarming tale for all those who fell in love with the Black Dog.
