Patsy Ann was a bull terrier who truly embodied the Alaskan spirit. In the 1930s, Patsy Ann was brought to Alaska as a puppy to be a pet, but she had other plans for herself. Instead of being coddled indoors or tethered in the yard, she wanted to explore the bustling town full of totem poles, salmon, and fascinating people. 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. Tricia Brown is the author of many books including The World Famous Alaska Highway. After living in and traveling Alaska for two decades, she now lives in Scappoose, OR. Jim Fowler is a painter and children's book illustrator. He lives in Juneau, AK.
