A great MW'er on the disneyland side does a daily post "this day in disney history" she posted that July 10 1981 was the opening of the movie Fox and the hound. So I just wanted to share my family 5 seconds of fame. This is a photo of my great grandfather Bee Dee Adkins and his beloved hunting dog Copper. They were the inspiration for the book Fox and the hound written by Daniel Mannix. He was a well known hunter and dog trainer back in the late 40's and early 50's in Perris, CA. The part I find neat is alot of the animal characters in the book are based on real people that were close to grandpa. In particular Big Mama the owl was a women neighbor that everyone called big mama she helped care for alot of the children in the area. I'm sorry such a long post. Just wanted to share.
Awesome post. Very cool. Perris is just up the road from where we live! - jacdanfan  5897.8 #8 8:28PM
