In 1914, the crew members of the lighthouse tender Hyacinth rescued a stray puppy from the Milwaukee River, and the puppy, named Sport, quickly became the beloved mascot of the ship. Sport: Ship Dog of the Great Lakes by Pamela Cameron tells the dog’s story through beautiful illustrations and prose based on historical documents and photos.
