"I hope I never step on any ice again or else I'll really die.I will force you to go first.
"The old fellow is nonsense. A real man can survive the night without a companion. I sure am cold but I can still survive!"
Traveling to the Boys
After running from the cold he stumbles upon a cave. He saw rocks, twigs and logs; enough to build a fire. He started his fire with the dog observing him.
After spending a night in the cave, the fire had gone out and he ate the piece of meat that was kept warm. He decided to head out and go towards home to the boys.
The man continues to follow the travel but stepped on a stream that was frozen and fell through. This time he could not get up, his whole arm became numb making it difficult for him to get himself off the ice. The dog watches him drown and continue to follow the trail
