In the short story, “The Last Dog” by Katherine Patterson a guy named Brock leaves the Dome. Brock is probably a teenager and he leaves the Dome to go and explore. The main thing I learned from this story is always try new things even if other people don’t agree. I enjoyed “The Last Dog” because I like how Brock saved the dog. I also liked it because I think I might have helped a dog if I was in that situation.
Dogs are known for being a man’s best friend. When we think of dogs we often think of their loyalty and companionship. Many love dogs so it is not surprising that they are featured in books too. In the Odyssey by Homer there is a dog named Argos. Odysseus leaves when Argos is just a puppy but when he comes back the dog has clearly not been taken care of and dies as soon as it sees Odysseus.
If you were to ask any family who owns a dog, they would agree that the addition of the dog into their home feels like having another family member. I have had three Golden Retrievers in my lifetime, and I can say for a fact that there simply is not a better pet for a family out there. Given the vital role that a dog can play in a typical family dynamic, it is imperative that the family chooses a dog that will blend easily with their family and their everyday life. Golden Retrievers are obvious standouts in this category. A Golden Retriever is the right choice for a family to make when considering what kind of dog they want to become a part of their family because they have all the criteria that make up a perfect family pet.
Candy and his dog have been through everything together. “Well—hell, I had his so long, had him since he was a pup (Steinbeck 44).” This passage suggests that Candy considers his dog as the best friend that he has ever had and that he doesn’t want to lose him. When his dog dies, Candy feels that he wants to do something different with his life. George and Lennie are talking about the farm they are dreaming of when Candy pipes in and says that he wants to help (Steinbeck 59).
Love is accepting and caring for yourself and others. The power of love is shown in the text Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, and in the film “La Mission” because George decides to accept Lennie in his life and treat him like a brother after his aunt dies. Also, Che learns to accept his homosexual son, Jesse, and care for him . These texts make it clear that love is accepting and caring for yourself and others, yet they also mention what love is not which is not accepting others for who they are. Love is a complex idea to grasp, but the two texts help us better understand this concept by showing us the conflicting bonds of George and Lennie and Che and his son Jesse.
In other words the fishing rod is not so important to the father, but Joe is important to him. Therefore the father is allowing his son to go out and fish for the first time without him by giving him his fishing rod as a symbol of handing over Joe’s ability to be a man.

To begin, Atticus was firm and fair. In To Kill a Mockingbird Atticus is seen as a powerful father figure in his children's lives. In addition, his steady presence keeps the children grounded. As Atticus was speaking to his kids he says “ You never understand a person until you consider things from his point of view until you climb into his skin and walk around in it” (Lee 30.) Atticus is always putting things in different perspectives to teach his children.
The last piece of evidence was found in the story “Hachiko, The Story Of A Loyal Dog,” in paragraph 4. Hachiko, the dog, bounced or leaped all over his owner. This shows friendship between the owner and the dog and how this bond is unbreakable.

The first example of this is Candy. Candy was able to live a more excited, happy life after he was to invited into Lennie and George’s plan to purchase a farm. He often thought about their soon to be home. He was able to convince Lennie and George to let him join in, and had something to live for again. “Candy smiled, ‘I got it figured out.

Early in the book, the boy has little experience with the harsh outside world, he is trusting in everyone but his father knows best, and does what he can to protect him. The father examines everyone right as he sees them, and the boy learns to do the same. “Like an animal inside a skull looking out the eyeholes” (McCarthy 63). McCarthy compares the man he sees to an animal in skull, doing this, gives the reader a grim feeling about the man. The use of a simile also helps us learn how Papa evaluates the man, determining if he is trusting or not, and in this case he is anything but trusting.
