Topic: Old yeller Fred gipson

Today I started a book about how Travis father went on a cattle drive to Abilene for all summer.
And travis had to take care of the livestock and crops until his father got home. If Travis didn't mess up there father was gonna get Travis a horse which is what Travis really wanted.

Once Travis Father left the dog old yeller showed up and ate of there wild meat that was hanging up to dry. Travis wanted to kill the dog but Travis little brother wanted to keep it Travis didn't listen to him but his mom made him keep. Because all of there meat was gone Travis was forced to go hunting travis got the job done and shot a doe. When Travis got home from hunting he seen his little brother Arliss and the dirty dog swimming in the drinking water that made him really mad he started a fight and threw rocks at the dog and Arliss that made there mother very mad. It was the time of year where the bulls meet each other and start a big fight. This year Mama, Travis, Arliss all seen the fight he heard it when they were eating supper they all went out sat on the fence and watched  the problem was they got caught in the middle of this fight when the bulls went right through the fence and nearly knocked there house down this made Travis mad and he went after them with a whip.

Travis was faced with many problems. Old yeller dog was going to town and stealing people's food from town no one from town knew who or what it was but it made them very mad and Travis was scared old yeller was gonna get caught and killed. Their pea patch was finished and ready to be picked but the turkeys were eating lots of it and bugs were eating it. Their corn patch started making heads and pretty soon the coons would be out eating the corn so Travis had to figure out something for that. Travis and his mom were very happy they decided to keep old yeller because he worked good for a hunting dog and little Arliss got caught between a bear cub and its mama and the mama cub charged at Arliss and old yeller saved his life by jumping at the bear.

Travis came up to the house from milking cows and someone showed up at his driveway it was the owner of the dog Burn sanderson  came to Travis house trying to get his dog back. Travis and Arliss were very upset because they really started  likeing the dog and Travis realised how helpful old yeller was. Burn told Travis about hydrophobia whitch was a bad diseas going around in the rivers he explanded to travis how to find it and what to look for it and what to do if an animal gets it.

Burn Sanderson came up the driveway and knew that Travis had been marking there pigs Burn told Travis that he missed a group in the cave on north side of there property. The next day travis went up there to mark the hogs he missed with old yeller. Travis went into the cave trying to find them he got the cornered and got on a pig to mark it all the pigs ran and started a big fight and started chargeing at travis. Travis didn't know what to do old yeller jumped in the middle and held off the pigs so Travis could run away to safety except a pig caught onto Travis and ripped the back of his leg apart. Luckily Travis faught off the pig and got away he patched up his leg and started going home but realized how mean that would be to yeller so he want back to get yeller when he got back at cave hogs had left and old yeller was laying down beside a tree with a lot of cuts and bites on himself he was in very bad shape Travis went home to get mama to help dog and get him home.

Travis and old yeller had to stay rested for a while because of there injuries Burn Sanderson came in the driveway to see how things were going when he found out Travis and yeller got beat up by hogs he said he couldn't lend a hand cause he was busy taking care of the settlement but he offered to leave his granddaughter Lisbeth to help out because Travis couldn't do anything. Travis and his mama kept saying know because they felt she wouldn't do much and get in the way But finally, they agreed to take her and they were surprised by how much and hard she worked and were happy they took her. She was lots of help until travis got better.

Travis was scared the hydrophobia disease was gonna get his farm and it did. Travis woke up one day to a bunch of noise and racket and fighting it was a bull and a cow got the disease and went mad. Travis was forced to shoot them because he didn't want the deasie going to other animals He wanted to bury the dead animals but he couldn't because he had to start them on fire so nothing could eat them and get the disease. Mama and Lisbeth and old yeller went out to gather corn and stoped at the spring to get water when a mad wolf attacked them and yeller the dog faught and protected the girls so they could get back to the cabin mama yelled and Travis to get the gun and kill the wolf Travis knew that voice and grabbed the gun and ran as fast as he could he seen the wolf and waited for the right time to shoot it and he got the right time and shot it old yeller was beat up pretty bad but he got up and went to the cabin. Mama came and sat beside Travis they talked and she explained why they needed to kill the dog Travis at first was very confused then he caught on and realized he had to kill it because if not the dog got bit by a mad wold and the dog has a high chance of getting the disease. The next day Papa came home from the cattle drive with a horse for Travis and a paycheck in his pocket the family was very happy to have papa back.
