This relates to the scene because although it seemed as if it was Carlson’s fault and impatience that caused the death of Candy’s dog, we later find out that Candy regretted letting Carlson put him down, making seem as if it were his own fault. However eventually, Candy fell asleep and moved on. The theme of “Relax, Take it Easy” is to let go of your worries, just as Candy moved on from the death of his

William Hirstein with Horse 's personality: First, psychopaths are uncaring about the other 's feelings and have shallow emotions. That does correlate with Horse, who does not respond to the boy 's worries in the story. Overconfidence and selfishness are two more aspects of psychopathy that Horse has throughout the work, as he is really sure he 's not going to get caught and he ends up leaving Rice and the boy alone just so he can save him from going to prison. As an addition, coldness is another thing attributed to psychopaths and Horse as well - the way he talks about the death of his beloved bunny when he was a child is really cruel. But the most important fact about psychopaths is violence.
