I remember my 4th grade teacher reading this aloud to the class, and a lot of us were trying to hold back the tears when Old Yeller got put down. Old Yeller. He also wrote Hound Dog Man and many, many short stories for magazines (including Reader's Digest)

Old Yeller by Fred Gipson was first published in 1956 -- lots of Boomer kids had this one read to them in the classroom at school that year
Old Yellar by Fred Gipson This is one of the most beloved children's classics ever written, an eloquently simple story of the love shared between a boy and his dog growing up in the Texas Hill Country.
When he has to put down his beloved dog Old Yeller , I just lost it. This movie made my heart ache.
Old Yeller (1956). Fred Gipson (1908-1973). Illustrated by Carl Burger. Harper Brothers. First edition. Original dust jacket. Newbery Honor in 1969. Classic children’s book about a boy and his dog. The basis for a terrific movie with Fess Parker and Dorothy McGuire. “He made me so mad at first that I wanted to kill him. Then, later, when I had to kill him, it was like having to shoot some of my own folks. That’s how much I’d come to think of the big yeller dog.” - Gibson, Old Yeller, Ch. 1
Old Yeller by Fred Gipson, Cried so hard when I saw the movie. This is a must read.
I read a lot. Old Yeller was one of my favorite books.
This will make you cry, but so worth reading

Twenty minutes passed by and no move was made; then suddenly the young dog rose, stretched himself, and stood looking intently down the drive. He remained like this for several minutes, while the cat watched closely, one leg still pointing upwards; then slowly the Labrador walked down the driveway and stood at the curve, looking back as though inviting the others to come. The old dog rose too, now, somewhat stiffly, and followed. Together they turned the corner, out of sight.
