In London’s book, Mercedes says to the dogs, “You poor, poor dears why don’t you pull hard? - then you wouldn’t be whipped.” This shows that, as Mercedes simply believes that the dogs are choosing not to pull hard enough, she believes that they can just do anything, and ignores that they are long overdue for a rest. This belief is tied to thinking of work dogs as tools, as one would think of a hammer as capable of enduring anything, so Mercedes most likely believes that the dogs are just tools. Mercedes almost certainly believes this of some people, as, in the book, she thinks her husband should be able to give her a life of total luxury, and is angry when he can’t. In London’s book, the narrator states, “[Mercedes] no longer considered the dogs, and because she was sore and tired, she persisted in riding on the sled.” This quote shows that, in her core, Mercedes doesn’t care about the dogs at all.
