One day as a beaver was gnawing down trees in the forest he heard a strange rustling sound. At first he was scared, but he was also curious. So, the beaver hid behind a tree to see what animal was making the noise. As he watched, he saw a dog with a strange object wrapped around its head. It was a leather thing that went around the dog's mouth and fastened behind its ears. It was also attached to a strap that went around the dog's neck and then dragged on the earth. The dog was struggling to pull the thing from his head. The beaver was afraid, but he cautiously went up to the dog.
"Please help me get this thing off," the dog pleaded in a muffled voice.
"Of course I will help you," the beaver quickly replied.
He took two chomps with his strong teeth, and the strange strap was off! The dog was very grateful!
"You helped me. How can I help you?" the dog asked.
"Well, will you help me drag this log to my pond? " the beaver replied.
"Of course," the dog answered. He grabbed a limb with his teeth and started to tug, but the log did not budge.
"I guess I'm just going to have to gnaw it into smaller lengths," Beaver said. "It's just too big."
"Wait! I have an idea," the dog said. He took the end of the strap and fastened it to a strong tree branch.
He gave Beaver the other end. "Pull!" he shouted. The dog also pulled on the strap, and the log slid easily along the ground.
Soon they found themselves on a little hill above the pond. Carefully, they dragged the log to the edge of the hill and then quickly released the strap as the log started to roll. It rolled right to the edge of the water!
"Wow, that worked great!" the beaver said. "Thanks for helping."
"And, again, thank you for helping me," the dog replied.
So the dog and Beaver thanked each other and went their separate ways.
