even more dog news!

my gramps is mad for seaman, the newfoundland who really led the lewis & clark expedition. he's finally getting his own statue (seaman, not my gramps). i am often mistaken for a newfie puppy, in part because of my big head but also probably because of my unparalleled bravery. the statue looks an awful lot like me, though the expeditions i have led have mostly been to the refrigerator, the snack drawer, my swimming hole, and once into the neighbor's yard in search of sustenance:

Dave Borlaug, president of the foundation, said it's the only stand-alone statue of its kind honoring the dog that accompanied members of the Lewis and Clark expedition two centuries ago, providing companionship and fetching game.
