In honor of the 50th anniversary of the National Trails System five special (plush toy) dogs, the Lewis and Clark Pups, will travel in the paw prints of their ancestor Seaman, dog of Meriwether Lewis.

The pups will travel more than 3,700 miles to complete their mission to commemorate and protect the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail. Each pup will be stopping at various visitor locations along the trail and submitting a blog post from each stop. Rocky, Harper, Dakota and Keelie will be joined by Seaman Jr. as he completes his portion of the mission from the International Space Station.
