Kathleen S | 2 comments Looking for the name of this book. The father was in a field (possibly farming) and the son comes/was there with his dog. A snake pops up and the father cuts the head off. The dog sniffs the snake and the snake bites his on the nose. Possible liddle/high school age/level.

Is the boy a teenager or a younger child?

Is this historical fiction?

Kathleen S | 2 comments I'm thinking he was maybe 8-12? I don't think a younger boy. And fiction but I don't think historical fiction. Probably a familiar book read in schools in either middle or high school

Across Five Aprils?

A Day No Pigs Would Die?

Just thinking of books that might have been assigned in school.

Stephen (swynn68) | 76 comments You may be thinking of Old Yeller.

We all know what happens to Old Yeller (which I guess I shouldn't say because maybe someone doesn't so spoiler), but there is another dog, Bell, who dies after being bitten on the nose by the decapitated head of a rattlesnake -- pretty much as you described.
