Biography: 

Mr. Binford is the name of both Miss Reba's male dog and (as Minnie puts it) "Miss Reba's man." Explaining the dog's name, Minnie tells Temple that the man "was landlord here eleven years until he die about two years ago" (154). In a sentimental mood after attending Red's funeral, Miss Reba herself says "he was such a good man," "a free-hearted spender than never give her a hour's uneasiness or a hard word." Still according to her, they lived together "like two doves" (254-55).
