Once it does indeed fail, it’s Candy more than anyone else who feels the loss.

When you first meet candy in the novel ‘Of Mice and Men’ by John Steinbeck, you see Candy with his beloved dog. Raising this dog from a pup, Candy felt a very strong bond with his companion, even though the dog could not speak, sometimes words don’t need to be said to show an un-dividing love. Candy was very proud of his dog, boasting things such as “You wouldn’t think it to look at him now, but he was the best damn sheep dog I ever seen.” (Page 47) But, Carlson insisted on putting the dog out of its misery as he was very old, could not eat solids, could not see and it was obvious that it hurt him to move and eventually Candy gave in. Candy didn’t want to let go of his companion because his dog kept him company and without it he would be lonely, and this was an obvious fear of his, which Candy showed by his reluctance to give his dog to Carlson. The reason for Carlson’s eagerness to get rid of the dog was because he didn’t share the special bond between Curly and his dog.

The situation in which Lennie opts to move into a distant cave in the mountains George replies, “I want you to stay with me, Lennie… Your Aunt Clara wouldn’t like you running off by yourself, even if she is dead” (Steinbeck 12). Readers are show that there is a true deep connection, friendship, and bond between these two men; that George really does love and care for Lennie making his decision to end Lennie’s life.

George explains to Lennie how he could pack up and leave him at any moment, essentially abandoning Lennie to experience life as a free man, however, the fact George doesn’t leave Lennie show’s he depends on Lennie just as much as Lennie depends on him.
