Catharine Sedgwick’s short story “Dogs,” was first published in The Juvenile Miscellany in 1828, under the pseudonym Stockbridge. S. The Juvenile Miscellany, was a children’s magazine that was published in Boston, Massachusetts. The intended audience for Sedgwick’s story, was children. Sedgwick’s story is about a mother teaching her children that even though dogs may be inferior beings, they are still capable of good, and much unconditional love. Dogs may not be able to be educated, but they can be trained to put on a show or help people to get through any type of struggle. By setting up her story, with short anecdotes about different dogs that flow into one another, Sedgwick makes it clear that her argument is that animal cruelty is wrong, and that goodness trumps genius. Ultimately, Sedgwick wants children to understand that hurting animals is wrong, and that goodness, as well as fidelity, are much more important

Symbolism is used in literature pieces to add dimension and depth to the story that is being told. The symbols that are used are usually subtle and discreet but are mentioned or talked about quite often. This is because in literature if something is mentioned more than once then it will most likely hold a greater significance than it may lead on. The author John Steinbeck uses many symbols in the story Of Mice and Men to add a better understanding on why some characters act the way they do. The way he adds symbolism to this story is through the animals that live with the characters or are talked about frequently. Three of which are Candy’s dog, Lennie’s puppy and the rabbits that are often mentioned by Lennie. These three symbols all have a deeper meaning to the story than they perceive to have.

The discussions between Dog and Vera indicated the two knew each other and even lived near each other prior to the start of the play. Moreover, the two were the only two that knew each other prior to Dog deciding to be a dog. The two lived in an isolated community, likely a college campus or religious institution, away from the rest of the world, until it inevitably fell to the apocalypse. In contrast, Bug and Coke, two Scavengers used provocative, crude language and conveyed aggressive personalities through their language and clothing.

Moreover, throughout the majority of the play Jo-Jo listened to Vera, despite her actions indicating she wasn 't with her as shown through her hesitance to steal Zetta 's cart and her final decision to fake Dog 's death. This was a dynamic transformation of her character deciding who she was and how she doesn 't have to fit into a certain class of people. She can instead choose he she wants to be with, which were the

Cautiously, I approached this massive monster and when I got to five feet away he ran towards me and licked my face like the leftovers on your dinner plate.
