In many ways, Candy’s dog plays a significant role in foreshadowing Lennie’s death and the manner of the death itself. Certainly, George has taken responsibly of killing Lennie himself after Candy tells him, “I ought to of shot that dog myself, George. I shouldn’t ought to of let no stranger shoot my dog.” Candy and his dog lead a parallel relationship to that of George and Lennie. Alike Candy’s dog, Lennie depends wholly on George to take care of him.

The characters who portray the theme of loneliness and isolation are; Lennie, because he is mentally challenged and the other characters fear his intimidating physique, but he also has George and their dream of getting their own farm to escape reality.

Curley the ranch boss’s son attacked Lennie because he was laughing at him. Lennie got scared and lost control grabbing Curley’s hand when he swung and wouldn’t let go crushing the bones in Curley’ hand “Looks to me like every bone in his hand is a bust”.
Similarly, when Candy lets Carlson shoot his dog he immediately regrets it, “[he] oughta shot that dog [himself]... [he] shouldn’t outta of let no stranger shoot [his] dog” (61). Lennie never intends to hurt anyone and does not deserve to be ruthlessly killed by Curly, an unfamiliar face, who intends to make Lennie suffer.

He just wasn’t a dog, he was everything to Tito. That is how strong their friendship was. Bimbo would also protect Tito because it says that Bimbo had his muscles ready for action. This shows that Bimbo and Tito were loyal to each other and that Bimbo was ready to leap into action for Tito because Tito was blind and was his friend. Bimbo would lead Tito everywhere because Tito didn’t have parents to take care of him.
Instead of getting upset and raising his voice, Atticus become as calm as someone can be and politely ask her questions to where she cannot be scared of him (Harris). The impact that Atticus’s actions have on the jury is unheard of in a case like this. Atticus is also thoughtful for everything around him. When Jem and Scout get there guns Atticus gives them one instruction, “... but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird” (Lee 103). Atticus says they can shoot at tin cans and blue jays but not to shoot a Mockingbird.
Atticus stays outside and the Cunninghams and others show up Atticus, Scout, and Jem got them to go away. Atticus raised Scout and Jem the correct way, not to be like the majority of people they saw and its good that they didn’t have a different father.

The repeated references to Candy’s discomfort throughout the novella suggest that the weak are persecuted by the strong. Steinbeck suggests that Candy has no future by implying that he’ll be “canned purty soon,” and that he’s “no good”. The way Candy clings onto George and Lennie’s dreams further solidify Steinbeck’s insinuation. The idea that the strong prey on the weak is exemplified by the shooting of Candy’s dog. Carlson, a callous and tough man, seeks the dog’s death for his own benefit.
