The man pushed the dog ahead of him.

Once, sensing danger, he made the dog go ahead. The dog did not want to go. It hesitated until the man pushed it forward. Then it went quickly across the white unbroken surface. Suddenly it fell through the ice, but climbed out on the other side, which was firm.
