The Black Dog

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 7:48 am

The “Black Dog” opened it’s doors for business in 1971 in the little town of Vineyard Haven, initially as a bakery, evolving into a restaurant and extremely successful symbol to many of the island Martha’s Vineyard itself.  From California to Maine, the profile of a black Labrador Retriever that adorns everything from sweatshirts and tee-shirts to coffee mugs and stuffed animals brings the fabled island home and reminds us all of the simplicity of just BEING.  Who doesn’t like a black lab?  How can you not?  Of course, 1971 was a simpler time and America was not as fractured as it is today.  Maybe, that is the central reason for it’s success, bringing us back to a time when everything was not on a 24 hour news cycle and we had the opportunity to relax and just watch a black lab wander through the marsh and sea, seeking only what he, or she, can see, smell, taste, hear and feel.  Have a great Tuesday!  Peace M
