Sullivan's Short Stories

A little dog is abandoned, rescued, and then separated from his owner by an auto wreck. The dog ends up on a 4,000 mile trek through swamp, forest, highway, and desert. He must survive all manner of dangerous wild creatures, pit bulls, and evil men. During his travels he befriends a homeless musician and a she-wolf.

Whiskers is abandoned on the city streets, becomes a stray, and is picked up by animal control.  He is rescued by a retired couple.  After bonding with them and learning to love them, he becomes separated from them after an auto accident.  Shocked and bewildered, he wanders away from the accident scene. 

He eventually recovers and tries to return home, but events cause him to travel farther away.  He is picked up at a rest stop by a kind lady on her way from Florida to New Mexico.  He manages to escape her--grudgingly because she is so kind--and runs into the desert night, 2,000 miles from home.

During his travels he encounters such dangerous creatures as cougars, snakes, bears, and gators.  He is picked up by a dog fight ring as bait for fighting dogs.  He tries to protect castaway kittens from a hungry fox.  A wolf with pups "adopts" him. 

He befriends a vagabond guitar player who is hitchhiking, and together they set out to track down a thief who has stolen the vagabond's pack--that contains some valuable items.

"Whiskers" has been compared to Lassie, Lady and the Tramp, and Homeward Bound.

Excerpt
Though the cat-scent that came to Whiskers now was similar to the bobcat's, it was definitely not the scent of that animal. Some instinct in him told him that this was a dangerous predator…one that would consider him as its prey.
He moved on until he grew weary and settled down for the night in a small nook between two boulders. That night he heard the scream of the big cat once more.
He awakened just before dawn to spot the creature in the distance. The wind direction was in Whisker's favor, so the animal was not yet aware of him. It was a large, tawny cat, easily the size of a big dog.
The scent of the animal never left his nostrils, and as he moved along the scent grew stronger. He sensed that the big cat had now become aware of him and that he was being stalked.
