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.
