dogs on ships: here's one

Well, this is exciting - The Pet Museum is partnering with the MB Fountain over in the UK to co-curate an online exhibition of dogs on ships! This all hit me late yesterday, so I'm still prepping ideas and research. Get ready for a lot of historic/vintage photos of dogs on deck, everyone! Stay tuned!
Meanwhile, I'm starting off with this snap from back in the day in The Pet Museum's neighborhood: Capt CH Jensen & his dog on the ALSTERKAMP, Puget Sound, WA, ca 1904.

Can't wait to see more dogs on ships (even though technically I'm a "cat person")!
