Wonder Dog

by Jay Nordlinger

In a post below, I lazily referred to a monument in Central Park, honoring a dog. I said I couldn’t remember who the dog was or why we pay him homage. Readers have informed me that he is Balto: a Siberian Husky (1919–33) who played a leading role in a mission of mercy. For the Wikipedia entry — in case anyone else needs brushing up on Balto — go here.
