The Fox and the Houndby Daniel P Mannix
Tod, a red fox kit, is raised as a pet but returns to the wild to do what all foxes are born to do ? explore, trot along fence posts, cross icy streams, define his territory, mate, hunt, bury corpses for a rainy day, and, most of all, out-smart his enemies.

Tod, a red fox kit, is raised as a pet but returns to the wild to do what all foxes are born to do ? explore, trot along fence posts, cross icy streams, define his territory, mate, hunt, bury corpses for a rainy day, and, most of all, out-smart his enemies. Tod, in fact, is so sharp-witted and cunning, dauntless and valiant, that his ability to defy death becomes legendary. Copper, a half-bloodhound tracker, is the dog who lives to hunt the fox and, along with his beloved master, embarks on a lifelong quest to end the life of the elusive Tod.
Described from an animal's perspective, the paths of the fox and the hound overlap and intersect in a world teeming with scent and sound and sight and instinct ? vivid, gripping, and absorbing, their story is so arresting and unflinching that the the reader's awareness of wildlife and the essence of their domain may be reshaped and refined and, in the end, irrevocably changed.
Winner of the Dutton Animal Book Award in 1967, the Athenaeum Literary Award, and a Reader's Digest Book Club selection. The Fox and the Hound also became an animated Walt Disney movie and a box office success.

I loved the first and second movie. (The first movie is sad.) ~Forever76247~
Love it also the fox constlation vulpecula is in mid sky around eleven
This makes me cry all the time. First copper and todd grow up being friends until one day copper and the other dog go on a journey to show copper how to be a hunting dog. Todd gets upset because he will never get too see his friend anymore until spring. As todd ends up finding a place to stay he gets cold and when morning arrives he hears a wood pecker repeatly hitting the then anoth bird talking about a catipillar who is getting cozy in the tree trunk. All the while their doing that todd leaves and an old women takes him in as she milks her cow todd ends up finding trouble. As spring comes todd is all grown up then copper comes home as a full hunting dog and is no longer friends with him.
Haven't read this but I know for a fact this book is NOTHING like the Disney movie. It's super dark and sugar coated like what they did with the kid movie.
