30: O | Old Yeller
31: Old Yeller is the main character in this story. He is the one who saved Little Arliss from that she bear, and the one who saved Lisbeth and Mama from that hydrophobia crazed wolf.

40: T | Travis
41: Travis is one of the main characters in the story also. He had many responsibility's when his father left. He had to be the man of the house. My opinion is that Old Yeller was the man of the house, not Travis.
42: U | Ugly

51: Before and after Travis liked Old Yeller, he always yelled at him. Whether it was "get out of here you old ugly dog", to go "get em Yeller!" Yeller did what Travis told him to do at all times.
