Fort Peck: The expedition found this region to be teeming with wildlife. It was here that they began to confront grizzly bears. They also saw and trapped several beaver for their pelts.

The dog was true to his Newfoundland breed and took every opportunity to chase geese, beaver, ducks and anything else that moved.
