* ARealManIsAKiller: Downplayed somewhat, but still present. Being able to "man up" and shoot his faithful companion Old Yeller to protect others from being infected by rabies is portrayed as Travis's introduction to the realities of adult responsibility.

''Old Yeller'' is a book by Fred Gipson about a boy and a stray dog in post-UsefulNotes/AmericanCivilWar Texas, later made into a Walt Disney film in 1957. 15-year-old Travis Coates has enough responsibility taking care of his mother, little brother Arliss, and the family farm while his father goes away on a cattle drive. Then the wilderness blows a stray "yeller" dog into his life whom he initially takes a strong dislike to... until Old Yeller saves Arliss from a MamaBear (kids shouldn't play with bear cubs). The two become inseparable partners, hunting and facing the dangers of TheWildWest together. Then a rabid wolf comes along...

* Disneyfication: While not the most dramatic it still has an element. MovieYeller is at least confirmed to have gotten it and it seems humane, BookYeller is put down immediately before any onset, forever not knowing. (while it was likely, the possibility of what if could certainly cause more anguish to Travis and the reader alike)
