Literature: The Incredible Journey
A children's novel by Sheila Burnford about a trio of animals trekking across the Canadian wilderness in search of their family. The voyagers are Luath, a young Labrador retriever, Bodger, an old bull terrier, and Tao, a seal-point Siamese.

It's been adapted to film twice, once in 1963 and more famously in the 1993 film Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey. The latter film changes up quite a bit, notably changing the breeds and swapping the breed types of the young and old dogs and making the male Siamese a female Himalayan.

This novel contains examples of the following tropes:
