The first time he came with me to Soledad and I went to the butcher to buy him a bone. The bone wasn’t much, but damn if Gus didn’t chew that thing to hell. I remember the first time I had to shave his fur because it was gettin’ so crazy long it almost dragged on the floor. I remember the first time we herded sheep together. Gus was a damn good sheep herder, better than anythin’ I ever seen.
He tells of a time when Argos was trained by his master to be a great hunter of wild goats and other smaller game. Further he touts the dog’s bravery, strength and speed. Although he never got the chance to hunt with Argos, this can be seen as a representation of Odysseus because, as a great warrior and leader himself, he trained Argos to be as such in the way of hunting. It is as if Argos was a piece of Odysseus that he left at home, the care-taking, responsible and hard working protector and provider. It would not be prudent to expect this of his son, Telemackos, due to his youthful age; it was only a purpose
While I was petting him I told my dad I wanted him because he was shy until I called him out. So we did. While my dad was signing papers with the owner we went around back where there were even bigger dogs which I think were the little puppy’s moms and dads. When my dad was done we headed home. During our ride home we stopped to the closest pet-co to get some dog food.

The two main characters in john steinbecks novel of mice and men have two characteristics in common. The first characteristic is that they both have a big dream right now in the the book Lennie asked George to tell him why they're different from other ranchers so George said to Lennie, “Well, we're gonna get the jack together and we're gonna have a little house and couple of acres an' a cow and some pigs and...An live off the fatta the lan'...And have rabbits” (Pg,14-15).They are very loyal to each other, as well.

In Animal Farm, the story begins with Old Major, the elder and diplomatic pig gathering the animals of the farm to listen to his speech about his ideals and vision for a perfect society where animals are free from man’s tyrant. The animal’s struggle at this time is to endure man’s abusive reign and his oppression. Old Major seems to have claimed a false brotherhood with the other animals in order to garner their support for his vision (deception is a one of the motifs in both works) but it is effective because after he taught them the national anthem, “Beasts of England” and died, the animals are united under the leadership of Napoleon and Snowball, who are also pigs. Immediately the irony is that people with superior intelligence are left to run and control the affairs of lower, unsophisticated (naïve), working classes and asserts their power over their subjects. In Childhood’s End, the Overlords appear in their spaceships and hover above earth when the Soviet Union and the United States have been in a race to create the first spaceship with a nuclear drive.

Moses the Raven said to the other animals that they could only go to SugarCandy Mountain if they worked hard. Moses the prophet told his followers that they could only get to Heaven if they prayed often and were nice to everyone around them, and just like Heaven, none of the animals know if there really is a SugarCandy Mountain, but they want to believe there is so they can all go there after they die. Squealer George Orwell chose the name Squealer for the pig from Animal Farm because
Choosing an Older Dog or a Puppy. Buying a pet dog is a very choosy and difficult experience. The best part of buying or picking out a dog is the fact that the person can choice what type and what age dog they would like. While many people say an old dog can’t be taught new tricks many people would disagree. While puppies are a lot harder to handle at first due to constant care and watching while their still babies, in the long run you hard work will pay off with a very trained and loyal dog.
Humble leaders are always thinking about those they are leading and rarely about themselves. John Stuart Mill, Martin Luther King, Old Major, Snowball, and Ralph all are servant leaders who choose service over self-interest. For example, Old Major in Animal Farm he says, "I do not think, comrades, that I shall be with you for many months longer, and before I die I feel it my duty to pass on to you such wisdom as I have acquired. "(Orwell 47). As a leader, he forgets about himself and only argues animals to pay attention to their miserable life, encouraging them to rebel.
