He's angry at him because Bud Searcy is always bothering folks, and on the day Bud Searcy came over after Travis got scratched by the hogs, Travis knew he'd be a bother to his Mama, because even though he talked about helping the women and children in Salt Licks while the men were gone, he'd never offer to chop wood or gather in a corn crop. And all he'd do was sit under the dog run all day, chewing tobacco and spitting juice all over the place, and, he'd expect Travis's Mama to cook him a good supper if he stayed that long. His Mama had ten times too much to do.

He decided to let Travis and the rest of the family keep Old Yeller if they would cook him up a nice meal and then he would be on his way. Missy Prissy- Lisebeth's little dog who is always sweet and playful, not a good farm dog. She had puppies that looked like they couldn't even stand up, just look cute.
