Buck accepted the rope because he trusted the man who put it around his neck. He wasn't used to being roped, but he did not sense danger from a trusted member of the Judge's staff.

Buck had accepted the rope with quiet dignity. To be sure, it was an unwonted performance but he had learned to trust in men he knew, and to give them credit for a wisdom that outreached his own.
