Man was on one side and all of the animals on the other. Theseeing the chasm widening quickly, tried to jump across but only managed to get his front claws onto the cliff of the side the man was on. The man reached down and pulled the to safety and ever since, man and have been inseparable companions. The is now man’s best friend in gratitude and loyalty but forever cut off from the rest of the animal kingdom.
