“The Dog that crossed the Atlantic – by Harrison Weir” is a full page book plate image, taken from the “Chatterbox Album of Animals”, published by W.W.Gardner, circa 1878. The short anecdote accompanying the illustration, reads as follows: “The dog in our picture crossed the Atlantic Ocean in the City of Raguna, a little vessel of less than two tons and a half, which sailed from New York to the chops of the Channel in thirty-four days. The crew of this tiny craft consisted only of two men and this dog.”
