When faced with the loss of his dog as Rose of Sharon was with the loss of her fiancee, he succumbs to thoughts of suicide, stating, "You seen what they done to my dog tonight?

Jenna Jensen’s article discusses how puppy mills are known to be very inhumane. Due to this puppy’s bodies are worn from being bred multiple times. Their teeth are rotted out, and they have cysts between their toes from the wires they have been forced to stand on. In effort to stop inhumane behavior, 54 Florida municipalities have banned the sale of puppies from puppy mills. Hillsborough County has been noted to be the next county to take a stand against puppy mills.
With only one desire: to eat. I no longer thought of my father, or my mother… I would dream. But only about soup, an extra ration of soup” (Wiesel 113). Gregor’s parents become increasingly indifferent to him because of the change of him. “Earlier, when the door had been barred, they had all wanted to come in to him; now, when he had opened one door and when the others had obviously been opened during the day, no one came any more, and the keys were stuck in the locks on the outside” (Kafka 18).
The killing of Candy's dog was symbolic, showed foreshadowing, and was a bit cruel. The dog symbolized Candy in that they both are old useless to the farm. The death of Candy's dog foreshadows Lennie's death because they both die in the same way. Also, by killing Candy's dog, they never gave it a chance to live its life, making it a bit of a cruel death. Candy loved his dog and it was his best friend.

This bothered Nala so she went to the garage to hunt for rats, but was too annoyed to do anything The days went on and, to Nala’s disliking, the dog stayed. Nobody ever played the red dot game with her anymore since they were out playing fetch with Reuben. Even when the boy played soccer Reuben would interfere and end up tackling Nala, so she just left. During the day when the girl and boy went out to school was the worst for Nala.
With a grimacing look on my face and my hands numbed behind my back wrapped in tighten handcuffs , I was heading to Polk County jail.The blond haired spring-chicken rookie police officer missed the first turn but we were surely on our way towards Bartow ,Fl stopping 2 miles away we stopped at what he called a subdivision located in Inwood Florida prepared for the consequences, i held my head high walking into the rather redundant, freezing Shrieff’s office while I was being searched and stripped of my shoes and socks I noticed a rugged filth stench in the air gruesome like a middle school bathroom but it all honesty that was the very least of my worries.Afterwards I was put in a temporary cell with some fellow freshly booked inmates you could
Candy is one of these examples. Candy’s dog ‘stinks to beat hell’ and ‘walks lamely with mild, half-blind eyes’. Carlson believes that this dog ‘can’t eat, can’t see, can’t even walk without hurtin’, and attempts to kill the dog even when Candy is reluctant to do so. Clearly, Candy is not as powerful as the elite members of the American society. The dog is a clear example of Candy’s powerlessness.
During the meeting of the Ladies Missionary Circle, Miss Merriweather was criticizing Atticus at his own house eating his food. In which Miss Maudie response was, “His food doesn't stick down, does it?”(pg##) Miss Maudie means that you might not like what Atticus is doing, protecting African-Americans, but you have no problem eating his food. Miss Maudie also helps Scout and Jem put their father more into perspective. After the mad dog incident,which was when a dog named Tim was not alright and Atticus shoots him, Jem is astonished at his father’s shooting abilities because at first, he thought his father couldn’t do anything. Miss Maudie tells them, “Atticus Finch was the deadest shot in
P.S, Missy is more intelligent than you¨ ¨ Ah, Whatever, But if we see you talking to that dog again, you freak.¨said the two boys in a mean way. ¨ Don't listen to them Missy, they're just trying to get to our heads.¨ It was one hour later, Lacey tied Missy to the pole right next to the bathrooms and told her ¨ You just stay right there, I will be right back.¨ ¨ok¨ said Missy. ¨ Look she left her dog right there, let´s get her dog.¨said one of the boys named Brice. ¨Don't you think, that is bad.¨The other boy Dice asked Brice. ¨Shut up and get the dumb dog.¨ yelled
After being oblivious of his own strengths and killing the dog, Lennie says that, “‘Now maybe Geaorge ain’t gonna let me tend no rabbits, if he fin’s out you got killed,’” (Steinbeck 121). Furthermore, Lennie’s puppy is one of several symbols that represent the victory of the strong over the weak. Lennie kills the puppy accidentally, as he has killed many mice before, by virtue of his failure to recognize his own strength. Like an innocent animal, Lennie is unaware of the vicious, predatory powers that surround him. Finally, Candy’s dog represents the fate awaiting anyone who has outlived his or her purpose.
Then all the guys went looking for Lennie. George lied and said he went South. In chapter 6, Lennie had two hallucinations; about his Aunt Clara was scolding him about how he treats George and the Rabbit said if Lennie was to have rabbits they would die. Next, George found Lennie in the brush by the river so he went over and talked to Lennie about the dream to distract him. Then he killed Lennie by shooting him in between the neck and the spine so he would not be
