At the beginning of the narrative we learn that the dog, called Alphonse, has many problems. He is going blind and cannot walk properly. Buddy is sad that he can do nothing to help Alphonse, and he knows that Alphonse does not understand why. But the vet gives Alphonse some pills which make both boy and dog feel better for a while.

Born in Brimfield on May 22, , the son of Benjamin and Charlotte Emerson Brooks , Burt was raised in a home perched on the lower rungs of the economic ladder.

Whether in spite of poverty, or because of it, family was a center of Brooks' life and he never strayed far from his parents or four siblings, living with his parents until he was well into his forties and only separating from them when his mother died.

A younger brother, Orson Francis Brooks, died even younger at the age of six on Aug.
