Dirk's Dog, Bello

Good picture of life in a tiny Dutch fishing village, where prosperity hangs on how the fish run. (With occasional good fortune in salvage from sunken vessels). One of these brought additional luck to Dirk, in his rescue of the dog, Bello, but it also brought unexpected adventures. A good story in authentic setting.
