Story Summary

Rooster, Cotton and Uncle Jake along with Flitter, Uncle Jake's hound and her seven half grown pups were headed out to hunt, but first they had to pass Old Man Garvey's place. Old Man Garvey was the meanest, orneriest, most cantankerous old coot that ever held a bad thought. Well, they almost made it until the pups saw a bobcat sneaking into Garvey's hen house, then all hell broke loose.
