1. The Legend

Many and many years ago, a little indian find a puppie in the florest. He took the animal and brought the animal to his home and became best friends.

After a long time the indian was called to a war and had to left the dog in the village. The dog remained at home looking to infinite waiting his friend. The dog doesn't eat, drink or sleep.

When the warriors came back, they notice the indian dog friend has died in war. The dog earing that joined all his strength and run to the top of a mountain and yowled for two days and two night.

After the second night during the sunborn the dog sat on the rock and gave his last bark as a form of goodbye to his man friend.

After that in the indian village a great thunder trembled that crashed on the rock where the dog was sat. All indians run to the place and arriving there found a huge stone in the form of a "Sitting Dog"

2. Saving the Dog
