Tear Jerker: Hamish Macbeth
In Death Of A Nag: Hamish's discovery that Towser has past away. If you've been reading the books from the start of the series, and you remeber all that Hamish and Towser have been through together, you feel sentimental about the poor dog, the same way the village does, at his funeral.
