A Native American Folk Tale

“The earth trembled and a great rift appeared, separating the first
man and woman from the rest of the animal kingdom. As the
chasm grew deeper and wider, all other creatures, afraid for
their lives, returned to the forest - except for the dog, who after
much consideration, leapt the perilous rift to stay with the humans
on the other side. His love for humanity was greater than
his bond for other creatures, he explained, and he willingly
forfeited his place in paradise to prove it.”
