Here’s another dog blog…it is a dog’s world after all!
At the Seaman statue dedication at the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center yesterday, a charming poem was written and recited by Darian Kath, one of the center’s interpreters. If you read the Lewis & Clark journals, you’ll see entries about Seaman written by Meriwether Lewis. Lewis didn’t write poetry but he definitely cared for Seaman.
I visited with one guy at the dedication who owned a Newfoundland and he said the breed is quite docile. When you see one lumbering towards you though, you definitely take notice! The weight of one of the dogs at the statue dedication was approximately 150 pounds. That’s a lot of pup! Newfoundland dogs also have a tendency to drool and you’ll see one dog in this photo who has a bib on under his new bandana. The bandanas were given in honor of Seaman and said Seaman, My Hero.
My camera captured many photos yesterday. There were some very proud dog owners and some very interested onlookers.
This photo is right after Margaret Halko and Carol Mungas unveiled the new life-sized Seaman statue. If you haven’t been to the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center lately, it just might be time to plan a visit.
Stop by and say hello to man’s best friend! Even though it’s a statue, it could be your next photo op.
