The man has to stop again and build another fire, however this time it is much harder because his hands are freezing cold and he can barely even pick up a stick. But he eventually gets a fire going.
The man thinking he is super manly because he is traveling by himself is to in his own thoughts to realize that he had made his fire directly underneath a snow covered spruce tree, the snow falls onto his fire and extinguishes it.
He tries to get the fire going again but can't because of his now numb hands, He starts to think maybe he could kill the dog and use it as an oven thing to warm up his hands, But he realizes that he cant even hold the knife in order to kill the dog.
The man in a desperate attempt to run towards the mining camp realizes he will never make is and lays down and prepares to die peacefully. The dog doesn't understand at first but when he senses death he howels for a while to mourn his owners death.
The dog then leaves his owner and starts to trot towards the direction of the camp with the promise of food warmth and lots of bacon.
I can't wait for all this food and some shelter.
The dog finds the camp and lives happily ever after. THE END
