But this dog is different. She doesn’t want to be babied and tethered in the yard. She wants to explore this bustling new town of totem poles, salmon, and fascinating people. She never answered when her name was called--it turns out she was born deaf. Eventually, Patsy Ann found her way to the town’s docks where the longshoremen were happy to feed her and share their bunkhouse with the dog. And even though she was deaf, Patsy Ann would run to the docks to meet incoming ships--eventually becoming the town’s official greeter. In that way, she went from nobody’s dog to everybody’s dog. Today, a bronze statue of Patsy Ann stands in the town square of Juneau, Alaska....

    Super cute story of a dog that belonged to no one, but that everyone loved. I was reminded of Hachi. (Great movie if you haven't see it.)Some dogs just seem to have their own mission in life. Patsy Ann's mission was to great people as they came off the ships.Fun read for the little kids, well really anyone of any age.

    This is a local story from Juneau, AK about a little white bulldog, who lived at the docks and greeted the ships every time they came in. There is a statue of Patsy Ann on the docks. This is a picture book biography of a cute dog that the whole town adopted in the early days of Juneau.

    I love the illustrations in this book. Patsy Ann is my favorite statue in Juneau and this book brings her story to life.
