    There are still a few words I can't make out.

    I'll guess a "D", please.

    Time helps the sadness subside, but the memories remain forever.

    This fills in quite a few things. D was the one I was waiting for the whole puzzle - 35 of those, plus six F's and five K's.

    “I kne- Old Shep -as going to die before I started page one.”
    “Don’t be ridi--lo-s,” the tea-her snapped. “Ho-?”
    I shr-gged. “Be-a-se the dog al-a-s dies. Go to the librar- and pi-k o-t a book -ith an a-ard sti-ker and a dog on the -o-er. Tr-st -e, that dog is going do-n. -hat happened to Old -eller?”
    “Oh, all right,” the tea-her ad-itted. “So Old -eller died.”
    “-hat abo-t So-nder? And Bristle Fa-e? Don’t forget -here the Red Fern Gro-s. The do-ble -ha--- – t-o dogs die in that one.”
    “-o-’-e -ade -o-r point,” gro-led -r. Fogel-an.

    Fourteen W's. That fills in quite of few of the things that are left! (I scored five of the W's as vowels, giving you 19 points.)


    “I knew Old Shep was going to die before I started page one.”
    “Don’t be ridi--lo-s,” the tea-her snapped. “How?”
    I shr-gged. “Be-a-se the dog alwa-s dies. Go to the librar- and pi-k o-t a book with an award sti-ker and a dog on the -o-er. Tr-st -e, that dog is going down. What happened to Old -eller?”
    “Oh, all right,” the tea-her ad-itted. “So Old -eller died.”
    “What abo-t So-nder? And Bristle Fa-e? Don’t forget Where the Red Fern Grows. The do-ble wha--- – two dogs die in that one.”
    “-o-’-e -ade -o-r point,” growled -r. Fogel-an.

    Eight C's. It's definitely filling in now!


    “I knew Old Shep was going to die before I started page one.”
    “Don’t be ridic-lo-s,” the teacher snapped. “How?”
    I shr-gged. “Beca-se the dog alwa-s dies. Go to the librar- and pick o-t a book with an award sticker and a dog on the co-er. Tr-st -e, that dog is going down. What happened to Old -eller?”
    “Oh, all right,” the teacher ad-itted. “So Old -eller died.”
    “What abo-t So-nder? And Bristle Face? Don’t forget Where the Red Fern Grows. The do-ble wha--- – two dogs die in that one.”
    “-o-’-e -ade -o-r point,” growled -r. Fogel-an.

    We have a winner! Moesha has correctly solved the puzzle. Here is the solution:


    “I knew Old Shep was going to die before I started page one.”
    “Don’t be ridiculous,” the teacher snapped. “How?”
    I shrugged. “Because the dog always dies. Go to the library and pick out a book with an award sticker and a dog on the cover. Trust me, that dog is going down. What happened to Old Yeller?”
    “Oh, all right,” the teacher admitted. “So Old Yeller died.”
    “What about Sounder? And Bristle Face? Don’t forget Where the Red Fern Grows. The double whammy – two dogs die in that one.”
    “You’ve made your point,” growled Mr. Fogelman.

    From No More Dead Dogs
    By Gordon Korman

    No More Dead Dogs is a delightful middle grade novel about an eighth grade boy, Wallace Wallace, who rebels against his teacher's favorite book, Old Shep, My Pal by writing a scathing book report about it and lands in detention for it. The passage I used for the puzzle pretty much sums of the boy's view of what he dislikes.

    Gordon Korman is a prolific Canadian author of kids' books who had his first novel published in 1978 when he was just fourteen years old, and had five books in print by the time he graduated from high school. No More Dead Dogs was published in 2000.
