There are famously more dogs
in Seattle than there are children—a function of the
city’s high cost of living, perhaps, or a sign that our transient
tech workforce craves furry friendship. But canines are so much
more than modern-day apartment-dwelling companions; long ago, the
Salish Wool Dog provided blankets for Coast Salish peoples and
today, working dogs keep our ferries running, among other essential
jobs. As part of the Beasts
of Seattle podcast series, Town Hall’s Podcast
Artist-in-Residence Samantha Allen interviews photographer Holly
Cook, Museum of the American Indian technician Pat Jollie, and more
about our best friends.
