Dave's problem started when they had to go back to Dawson ''Dave would cry in pain every time the sled was jerked back'' on pg 48.
Dave did not like to get his only sled job taken away but it was taken so he bit the trace and then went back to his normal spot yet he was still in pain.
Bucks slumber fight
finally Dave's caretaker could not stand that he was in pain so he took him into the woods were all the dogs could here the loud BANG!
Buck knew at the start when he met Spitz it was going to be bad so he kept his distance and tried to be alpha but Spitz held that job.
Buck had a tiny slumber pit but when he went to go get his food he went back to a big surprise Spitz and he fought him for the spot and ended up fighting intruders from the forest.
last Buck saw a bunny that looked tasty to eat so he chased it as the other dogs chased behind him and as soon as he caught up to the bunny Spitz took it and then fought Spitz for it until Buck defeated Spitz and Spitz was no more
