Sol-leks (a dog) Timeline and Summary

  • Sol-leks slashes Buck when he approaches on his blind side (this is the dog with the scar over his eye).
  • He does very well in the traces, filling the position just ahead of Buck.
  • He becomes a teacher to Buck in the traces.
  • Sol-leks is assumed to be the next choice for leader when Spitz dies, but Buck is having none of that.
  • Sol-leks dies with the rest of the team when the bottom drops out of the trail.
