"The pudding was Jack's favorite, a spotted dog, and a spotted dog fit for a line-of-battle ship, carried in by two strong men."'Bless me,' cried Jack, with a loving look at its glistening, faintly translucent sides, 'a spotted dog!'"'We thought as how you might like one, sir,' said Pullings. 'Allow me to carve you a slice.'"--Patrick O'Brian, The Ionian Mission, 83See also drowned baby.
