Buck lived at a big house in the sun-kissed Santa Clara Vally.
Buck crumpled up and went down, knocked utterly senseless.
Buck stood and looked on, the successful champion, the dominant primordial beast who had made his kill and found it good

As Buck watched them, Thorton knelt beside him and with rough, kindly hands searched for broken bones.
But Thorton fell on his knees beside Buck. Head was against head, and he was shaking him back and forth.
