Book Club goes to the dogs. Or rather, one particular dog: "Old Yeller," the classic tale of a Texas hound dog by Fred Gipson. The book was the pick of one Washington DC reader who loved the book so much, she wrote a letter to the late Mr. Gipson and won a national honor award in the Letters About Literature contest. We'll hear from Ellie and her classmates at Lafayette Elementary School in DC nd a real dog expert: Mia Cobb, a canine scientist from down under. Actor and Texas native Michael McKinley is our celebrity reader.

Mia Cobb and Rudy can be reached at Do You Believe in Dog?
