Patsy Ann of Alaska, by Tricia Brown

In 1929, Patsy Ann arrived in Juneau, Alaska, with an independent streak as big as the territory. The English bull terrier cycled through a couple of households, running away each time, making it clear that she was nobody’s dog. She was everybody’s dog. Meet the canine free spirit who went from tethered pet to official town greeter at the docks, meeting every ship that came to port for all of the 1930s. Although she was impaired, somehow Patsy Ann knew whenever a ship was coming.

A bronze statue of Patsy Ann stands at the docks today, still looking up the channel for the next arrival.
