In the morning it was Henry who awoke first and routed his companion out of bed. 
早上Henry最先醒来,叫醒了他的伙伴Bill。
Daylight was yet three hours away, though it was already six o'clock; and in the darkness Henry went about preparing breakfast, while Bill rolled the blankets and made the sled ready for lashing.
尽管已经有6点钟了,但是距离白天还要再过3个小时;Henry摸黑正准备着早餐,Bill则卷起毯子,准备雪橇。

"Say, Henry," he asked suddenly, "how many dogs did you say we had?"
“喂,Henry,”Bill突然问道,“你说我们有多少只狗?”
"Six."
“6只啊。”
"Wrong," Bill proclaimed triumphantly.
“错了,”Bill有些得意。
"Seven again?" Henry queried.
“又是7只了?”Henry问道。
"No, five; one's gone."
“不,是5只,有一只不见了。”
"The hell!" Henry cried in wrath, leaving the cooking to come and count the dogs.
“什么!”Henry愤怒地叫起来,放下炊具走过来数狗。
"You're right, Bill," he concluded. "Fatty's gone."{Fatty's:Fatty has}
“是的,Bill,”他说道“Fatty不见了。”
"An' he went like greased lightnin' once he got started. Couldn't 've seen 'm for smoke."
“ 他似乎一旦出现就如闪电般,如一阵烟我们根本看不到。”
"No chance at all," Henry concluded. "They jes' swallowed 'm alive. I bet he was yelpin' as he went down their throats, damn 'em!"
“Fatty没有希望了,”Henry得出了结论。“他们生生地吞了他。我敢说他在进入他们的喉咙时还在叫呢,该死的!”

"He always was a fool dog," said Bill.
“他本来就是只笨狗,”Bill说道。
"But no fool dog ought to be fool enough to go off an' commit suicide that way."
“不过,再笨的狗也不至于笨到去自杀吧。”
He looked over the remainder of the team with a speculative eye that summed up instantly the salient traits of each animal.
Henry沉思的目光注视着剩下的那些拉着雪橇的狗,一眼就能看出他们各自的性格特征。
 "I bet none of the others would do it."
“我敢说别的这些狗没有会做出这样的事来的。”
"Couldn't drive 'em away from the fire with a club," Bill agreed. "I always did think there was somethin' wrong with Fatty anyway."
“用棒子都不能将这些狗从火边驱赶走,”Bill说道。“我一直就觉得Fatty有点不对劲。”
And this was the epitaph of a dead dog on the Northland trail - less scant than the epitaph of many another dog, of many a man.
这就是一直死在北国旅途中的狗的墓志铭——不比其他狗,或者一些人简陋吧。
