(Block Island - Salty Dog)  Nap time for the Salty Dog!  As we were walking through town, we saw this dog asleep in the doorway.  He didn't move, even when people were coming in or going out the doorway.  We wondered if the dog came before or after naming this shop.

On 28 December 2002, Maegan Hobe, the owner of Salty Dog, wrote to us to answer our wondering about the name.  She said that the store was named after her Grandfather, who made his living at sea. She said, "Salty the dog didn't arrive until the second season of the store and I originally wanted to call him Ben but my mother insisted that Salty would be a clever name...she was right...He's the mellowest, most well-behaved dog you'll ever meet.  He's been that way since he was a puppy and he's now 5.
