Expedition Dog

Did you know that Lewis and Clark had a dog on their expedition? Seaman was the Newfoundland breed that accompanied them. He was purchased for $20 just before they departed Pittsburgh.

He is remembered in this statue in St. Louis on the Mississippi riverbank. I took the photo on a gray day. The river was so high the stairs were closed and waves from the passing tug boats and barges were splashing up!
