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
One of my absolute favorite books when I was a kid. My copy looked just like this!

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.
