Lewis' Dog Seaman

Meriwether Lewis has a New found land dog that went with him on his journey. At one point lewis was offered 3 beaver skins for the dog but declined because he loved his dog. April 22, 1805 : " walking on shore this evening I met with a buffaloe calf which attached itself to me and continued to follow close at my heels until I embarked and left it. It appeared alarmed at my dog which was probably the cause of it’s so readily attaching itself to me"
