Carlson had initiated a conversation on Candy 's dog reeking in the ranch house and a final decision was made to shoot the dog and put its misery to an end. Candy 's ego is pragmatic which led him to let the guys shoot his dog but it was clear of the pain he was going through with the loss he had occurred. Candy had depended on his dog for friendship since he was a young boy and throughout time, he had not realized that he depended on the dog for his own sense of security. Unable to handle the absence of his best friend, Candy moved to George and Lennie for companionship, " 'Tell you what...S 'pose I went in with you guys.
a shot sounded in the distance... ”(Steinbeck 48-49). Although he was upset he was not the one who did it, he understood it was important to move past the loss of his dog. It was time for his dog to pass away already and he had to put his emotions aside and let them end his misery. Another example of the characters having to get through the loss of a pet is when Slim had to kill off some of his dogs because he didn’t have
I think that the author was trying to say that the dog, like candy, is old and people think worthless. I also think that the author was trying to foreshadow something bad happening to George and Lennie. This is because I have noticed that Candy’s relationship with his dog is alike the relationship of George and Lennie. Since someone else shot Candy’s dog, I think that maybe George or Lennie might ask someone to hurt the other person. Or maybe since Candy said that he should have killed his dog, George may hurt Lennie and vice versa.
We learn in chapter 4 that Lennie accidentally kills one of Slim’s puppies. Lennie is heartbroken, but Curley’s wife comes to soothe him by allowing Lennie pet her hair. Later, Lennie begins to unexpectedly pull on her scalp as she screams in pain. He then proceeds to try and make her stop yelling but shakes her too hard and breaks her neck. When news began to spread about Curley’s wife death, George already knew it was Lennie.
John Steinbeck shows in this quote that Lennie does not fight back when Curly is punching him in the face because he is dumb. When Lennie kills the puppy he yells “ God damn you” now George is not going to let me tend no rabbit.(85) Steinbeck shows that Lennie has an intellectual disability. Steinbeck uses characterization to show that Lennie is powerless to society.
The main reason George killed Lennie is because Lennie would have killed somebody again. And the evidence is clearly there, the pet mice that he killed, the poor puppy that he accidently hit to hard, and especially Curley’s wife. He almost killed the girl in weed if he had gone any further. The sad thing is is that he doesn't know how strong he really is, nor does he know what he’s done wrong in the first place.
He knew that if Curley found George with Lennie, Curley would have thought that George in on the plan the entire time. This is why Curley says “You George! You stick with us so we don’t think you had nothin’ to do with this”(Steinbeck 98). Though some may say that George shouldn’t have killed Lennie only because he didn’t want Curley to do it, George knew and understood how Candy felt when Carlson killed his dog. Ince Candy’s dog was Candy’s best friend, George knew how much pain Candy went through when he had to witness his own dog getting killed by somebody other than himself.
Curly’s wife walks into the bunkhouse and “the rectangle of sunshine in the doorway [is] cut off” (31). She is a sign of trouble, and her blocking the light foreshadows a terrible event that will occur with her. Soon, Curly’s wife will get Lennie into trouble when he ends up killing her, which causes a ripple of terrible events to follow. Carlson insists that Candy’s dog is worthless, smelly, and needs to be killed. Confident in his opinion, Carlson “[leads] the dog out into the darkness” (48).
They are hidden behind the bushes and ignored. Harper Lee shows numerous accounts of voicelessness in “To Kill A Mockingbird”. How Boo Radley never comes outside, how Mayella Ewell is being forced into lying about who truly hurt her. Also, how Tom Robinson has no true say in his trial. In Harper Lee’s “To Kill A Mockingbird” (1960) she highlights the voiceless characters through Boo Radley,
This foreshadows the accepting reception that Heathcliff will receive from Catherine. One of the most prominent usages of dogs as foreshadowing tool is the hanging of Isabella’s dog, Fanny. The disturbing scene symbolizes and foreshadows the tragic outcome of Heathcliff and Isabella’s relationship. On the night that Heathcliff and Isabella elope, he hangs Fanny in a rage as an act of revenge against the Linton family. Heathcliff’s cruelty towards the dog foreshadows his abusive and neglectful treatment towards Isabella and their son, Hareton (Adams).
He was worried the Gorge would get mad and not let him tend the rabbits. He went to the river where he was told to wait in the beginning of the book. When George and Can 't find her dead in the barn, they knew who did it. When Curlys and the other men came in they also knew who did it. They wanted to kill him.
In chapter 5, Lennie was playing with the puppy in the barn, the pup bit him and he smacked and shook the puppy and the puppy died. Curley’s wife came in and her and Lennie talking and then Curley’s wife asked Lennie is he would feel her hair and he did but he was messing it up and then he pulled it so hard he snapped her neck. So Lennie ran to the brush.
It started going astray in Weed when they were forced to run away and find new work. Their progress was good but Lenny 's desire for soft things ended up stopping one of his small plans of taking care of a puppy and raising it. Even though he was a good worker, he was forced to run when he accidently killed Curley 's wife when he panicked and refused to let go of her hair, when she offered him to pet it. In the end, he was killed and would never live his plan of taking care of rabbits and other soft animals. Candy 's plan of his life was to just work on the farm he was currently at.

When Curley had attacked Lennie, he didn’t know his own strength and broke Curley’s hand. “His closed fist was lost in Lennie’s big hand.” (Steinback 63). After that Lennie had killed a puppy because he
