The popular Patsy Ann statue faces the last cruise ship of the season, the Norwegian Spirit, on Monday at Marine Park. The Norwegian Spirit left town Monday afternoon, ending a season that brought about 846,000 cruise ship passengers to Juneau. The Patsy Ann statue is a memorial to a dog who was once such a regular greeter of ships that in the 1930s she was dubbed by the mayor the "official greeter of Juneau."
