I was a big fan of where the red fern growS as a child.My favorite dog was a coon hound red color named atlas.
We grew up with a Springer Spaniel named Pepper. I still remember the night my Dad brought her home. We had made her a nice warm bed in our basement, but when we left her alone she whimpered. So we gave her my younger brother’s teddy bear, and she snuggled right up to it and went to sleep.
