In the 191 year history of Owls Head Light Station, “Spot” the dog
may very well be the light station’s most beloved story – an account
that is both heroic and heartwarming.
“Lighthouse Dog to the Rescue
is about Spot, a remarkable spaniel who lived at Owls Head Light with
the keeper’s family in the 1930s,” says author Angeli Perrow. “He learned to
ring the fog bell to greet passing boats and came to the rescue of the
Matinicus mailboat one stormy winter night.”
