Inside the shack, a deceased Nord is lying on a bed. At the end of the bed is a table with various items on it. Such items include a lantern, bread, and most notably a journal. Reading this one page journal explains that the owner died of Rockjoint, and it mentions Meeko.
Meeko can be found roaming around areas near the shack. If he finds the Dragonborn, he will bark and lead to his master's shack. Once there, Meeko will whine over the loss of his master. Here the dog can be made a follower. He will whine if the Dragonborn tells Meeko to go back to the shack.
- If Meeko becomes a follower and the Dragonborn returns to the shack after some time, the dead Nord and his bed will have disappeared.
- If the dead Nord is reanimated using an ordinary spell or a staff, he will not turn to ash, as though one had used Dead Thrall.
