  • To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper LeeReimagined by VJ Ray
  • That old dog down yonder.
  • Tim Johnson was a dog well-known to all of Maycomb, and very familiar to Jem and Scout.
  • Yeah.
  • Whatcha looking at?
  • That's old Tim Johnson, ain't it?
  • The Scout children rushed home and told their cook, Calpurnia about the wild-looking dog.
  • We should head home, Scout. I think there's something wrong with that dog.
  • Cal then used the telephone to warn the neighborhood of the rabid animal on the loose
  • What's the matter, children?
  • That dog is sick, Cal. I'm worried.
  • As the dog approached, the only two men who remained outside after Cal's warning were the sheriff and Atticus Finch.
  • Sheriff, you know I haven't touched a gun in 30 years, but I'll do it if I have to.
  • You know what needs to be done, Atticus. My aim isn't good enough, and you're the man for this one-shot job.
  • Atticus didn't want it to come to this, but he portrayed it more as putting Tim Johnson out of his misery.
  • You saved the day, dad.
  • The Finch children learned a lot that day about their father, for they previously thought they had the most boring dad in the town.
  • I didn't know you were that good of a shot!
