Dog Names Meaning Colorful in Pop Culture
Our second featured famous dog with a colorful name from pop culture is a yellow stray dog named Old Yeller. This movie, depicted in the 1860's, involves a teenaged boy being left with his mother and younger brother to manage the ranch while his dad goes off on a cattle drive. As the tale goes, this mangy stray dog shows up for an uninvited visit with the family. Travis, the teenaged boy, reluctantly befriends the stray yellow dog and grows to love and respect the old dog after a number of incidents involving raccoons, snakes, bears and virtually all manner of animals known to live in the area. Old Yeller has a profound effect on Travis' life at that time as well as later, even as the happy scene changes to one of trials and tough decisions.
Both of these colorfully named canines show a degree of loyalty, intelligence and love which can teach everyone, regardless of age, about unconditional love and devotion.
