During the Whaling Days When Nantucket Was The Center of the World, Staffordshire Spaniels were Common Place in Whaling Captains' Homes. While Beautiful and Charming They Also Had a More Intriguing Usefulness. If the Spaniels Were Placed in A Woman’s Windowsill Back to Back, it Meant Her Husband Was At Home. If They Were Positioned Face to Face Her Husband Was At Sea. It Was A Signal to Her Lover That The Coast Was Clear….Pun Intended. Get A Pair.
