Well, until they found out York didn’t have paint on him!<br />Clark bought a dog just before the Expedition. He was very expensive. His name is Seaman. He proved useful by saving Lewis when he fell of a cliff and when he saved the Corps of Discovery by warning them when there was a Buffalo Stampede<br />
