In Where the Red Fern Grows why was the dogfight hard for the narrator to watch?

In the first chapter, the dogfight was hard for him to watch because it brought back memories of his own dogs of his childhood days in the Ozarks. His dogs, Old Dan and Little Ann, got into a fight with a mountain lion which brought about Dan's death. Dan's death later led to Ann dying of sadness. So when the narrator is watching the dogfight as an adult, it brought back these memories, especially when he sees that the dog being picked on was an old red coonhound, just like his dogs were. He says: "It's hard for a man to stand and watch an old hound fight against such odds, especially if that man has memories in his heart like I had in mine. I had seen the time when an old hound like that had given his life so that I might live." He remembers Old Dan dying to save his own life, and this touched his heart and brought back memories.
