Buck can feel his body turn numb, and his stomach is wild with hunger. He can tell buy the talk of the men that he is not going home to his paradise anytime soon, and he will have to brace the arctic weather, if he wants to survive.
Buck roams around the camp site, and has yet to find a warm place to sleep. He soon learns that all the other dogs had dug holes in the snow, to keep their body heat contained. With out hesitation, buck dug his very own hole, and slept like a baby.
The pack was attacked by rabid dogs, and Dolly one of the original dogs, caught it after a terrible fight against the huskies. Dolly was then sentenced to be killed.
Buck and his team were bought by three people who had no clue on what to do. They took no advise, and had lots of trouble pulling their overweight sled. When they got the sled going, and a sharp turn the sled tipped, and caused all their things to go everywhere.
Bucks new owners, did not listen to the advise they were giving and continued their journey, through dangerous terrain. This caused them to fall of a cliff, ultimately resulting in their death. Luckily Buck had been rescued just seconds befoe by a man named John Thornton.
Buck sees that John Thornton was killed by the yeehats, and morns for his one true friend.
