Following the attack by the starving huskies that injured many of the sled dogs and reduced their rations, Perrault and Francois pushed on toward Dawson, still four hundred miles away. The dogs broke through the thin ice repeatedly, and Buck's paws--still not used to the intense cold of the frozen ice--were in bad shape. He whimpered in agony and could not rise to eat his food, so Francois cut away part of his own moccasins and fashioned four small moccasins for Buck's feet. Francois also massaged Buck's feet for 30 minutes each evening, and soon Buck was feeling better.

Francois made four small moccasins for Buck's feet, because his feet were in bad shape and not yet used to the cold.
