Candy is and old man who relies on his dog to act as a companion. Many times it is seen in the novel that he is lonely, and as he sits in his bunk, he does not speak a word to anyone else. As the days go on many of the men in the shack told Candy that his dog “ain’t no good to you Candy. An’ he ain’t no good to himself” (44). Candy is crushed by what the men say, but agree that the only thing he has left from his past needs to die now.
The animals died because Lennie was petting them too harshly because he isn’t aware of his own strength. When Lennie is inside the barn he realizes the puppy died, he blames the puppy for not being strong enough instead of blaming himself for not having control over his strenght. “And Lennie said softly to the puppy, ‘Why do you got to get killed? You ain’t so little as mice. I didn’t bounce you hard.’ He bent the pup’s head up and looked in its face, and he said to it, ‘Now maybe George ain’t gonna let me tend no rabbits, if he fin’s out you got killed.’ He scooped a little hollow and laid the puppy in it and covered it over with hay, out of sight; but he continued to stare at the mound he had made.

Carlson nag at him about how the old dog had no teeth and rheumatism. All Candy could say was I had him scene a puppy guess I have never noticed how much he had smelled. Carlson kept bugging Candy till he gave in about Carlson going to shot his dog. Then Carlson took the old dog and shot him. I think it should have been Candy’s choose not Carlson’s.
He just wants to shoot the dog, because it's very old, and can't eat much. He doesn't even think about how Candy might feel, because that was the only true relationship he had. Carlson has become insensitive towards others from being isolated, and not have a true relationship. Isolation is an abstract thing to think about, but all the outcomes of being isolated are negative ones. In the novel Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, the author suggests that being isolated can negatively change how individuals act and perceive things.
When his dog gets shot he does not have much to live for. He cannot work with the other men and now has lost his one friend in the world. After everyone left the barn and a gunshot was heard in the distance Candy turns to George and says "You seen what they done to my dog tonight? They says he wasn't no good to himself nor nobody else. When they can me here I wisht somebody'd shoot me...""I ought to of shot that dog myself, George.
Three prominent themes in To Kill a Mockingbird are lost honor, loneliness as destruction, and will to survive. Bob Ewell barely had a shred of respect for anyone, and that is all he got in return. Everyone in Maycomb knew he was a man of no dignity, a man who lived in the town dump, without a care for his children. Atticus explains more about the Ewell’s to Scout, “It’s against the law, all right, and it’s certainly bad, but when a man spends his relief checks on green whiskey his children have a way of crying from hunger pains. I don’t know any landowner around here who be grudges those children’s game their father can hit” (Lee 41).
This morning already started off on a bad note(1). I didn 't get any sleep last night because the stupid cattle would not stop mooing, annoying little useless animals they are. And I was near about to fall asleep when all of the sudden my owner opens the barn door, and stomps right in and wakes me up(2). I quietly mutter under my breathe ¨today is not going to be a good day(3).¨ Also my ownery didn 't give me the amount of hay I wanted so my stomach keeps growling every five seconds(4). Man being a horse is hard everybody should try it for once in their life just to experience the sensation of misery(5)!
