Another of Lars’ exploits within the movie was the smothering of an innocent dog owned by one of Jeff’s neighbours in the apartment complex in order to help keep any evidence of his murder to a minimum. In a very heartfelt scene the owner of the dog, distraught over her recent loss, cries into the night, admonishing her neighbours for their cruelty shouting ‘You don 't know the meaning of the word 'neighbours '! Neighbours like each other, speak to each other, care if somebody lives or dies!’. This strong line urges the audience into thinking about pushing past the ethical barrier of privacy and testing boundaries because, as shown by the film, a location in which people predominantly live in complete separation to one another isn’t quite the utopia one might set it out to be, and there very much are ill
He was staring down at the cement patio, and when he turned to me, his eyes had a wounded look, like a dog who 's been kicked. "You must be awfully ashamed of your old man," he said.” This led to Rex giving up alcohol for short time. In the movie to show his, craziness in the detoxing scene, he was literally chained to a bed screaming like a wild animal. This tells us and sheds light on the true drunk of a man, Rex is. This point is told the same in the book and the movie, but strengthened by visualizing seeing it.
After the death of the dog’s master, Boardman Hawes shows how the people start saying that now this dog has something “sombre” only because his owner had it (Paragraph 5). People judge the dog by his background and company, not by who he is. The dog response to the people’s thoughts is fear, showing a defensive position appealing to his survival instincts. Because of this fear he is not able to interact with the people, as they also think that he is the devil, provoking more fear. “Some said he was hunting with the spirit of his lost master; some, that he was a devil incarnate.” (Paragraph 7).
He states, “the smell, snoring, and social graces…”, relating a kennel full of pugs to his tent mates. These words are attached to negative connotations since he links the habits and characteristics of a pug to his fellow soldiers. This clearly shows that this soldier does not enjoy staying in the tent. In the following paragraph, the writer explains hygiene and warmth. He states, “It gets freakin’ cold here at night.” This choice word “freakin’” is a slang expression and further goes into detail of his uncomfortable time here.
Volkovoi calls the prisoners “slobs” and has been known to hit them, for example, and Shukhov is also called a slob, and a pig on page 11 when he washes the floor. On the next page, a guard says that the zeks “are not worth the bread that we give them”. This shows the disrespect the prisoners are submitted to. This kind of mistreatment would have had a psychological effect on both the guards and the men; vocalizing such distaste would strengthen the guards’ low view of the prisoners, and at the same time wear down the zeks into accepting that as their place, after hearing it so many times. This bad treatment strengthens the theme of dehumanization by creating this given belief of the zeks as worthless.

One reason dogs should not be allowed in the workplace is because they are a distraction. In the article “No I do not Want to Pet your Dog” Farhad Manjoo states”A half-dozen people were crowding around him cooing and petting”. Instead of working people would be petting all the dogs that are at their work. Bosses will not pay people who just sit around all day pet dogs and do no work. “The dog is sure to come around you get between your legs, rub against your thigh, take a nap on your feet.” Farhad Manjoo, “No I do not Want to Pet your Dog”.
His compassion for the dog is clearly seen when he noticed the vulnerability of the dog, with “no master to take care of it...ugly and old” yet “squatted down and stroked his head.” (Endo, 2008:73) Here, Endo portrays an image of Gaston lowering himself and comforting the mongrel, which has been shunned away from the society and had “been pelted with rocks.” In the Bible Christ often offers protection and comfort particularly to those who have been rejected by the society, most noticeably the incident with a woman caught in adultery who was at risk of being stoned to death. The dog is used here as a symbolic device that represents the weak, orphaned and the
