I said I was sorry for how Gus smelled and that I’d try to fix it up, but that didn’t change nothin’. Carlson took Gus round the back of the barnhouse and I didn’t see him again after that. I never thought this day would come just yet. It always knew Gus was old, but I aint’ ready for this. I remember the day I got Gus.
When Carlson asked to take Candy’s dog to kill it, Candy would not answer and just lay still and stare at the ceiling because he was sad that he would lose his only friend. Candy had the same relationship that George and Lennie had for years with his dog. Lastly, Candy has a physical disability, “He scratched his wrist nervously. I Got hurt four years ago”. Since Candy lost his wrist four years ago he is not able to do work, and he thinks that nobody wants to be friends with him because of this.

In Natalie Angier’s “The Ambivalent Bond with a Ball of Fur,” Angier feels that the bond between humans and pets is hard to understand. She states that we love and adore our pets that we lavish all our time and money on them. We leave our assets and rely on our pets for comfort but still can abandon them when times get tough. I believe people bond with their pets because they give us a sense of security and comfort both physically and emotionally. In her article, Angier points out how pets are the antidote to human judgment and the fog of human speech meaning pets protect us from human judgment and criticism and even though they can’t speak our language they listen to our every command.
I herded sheep with him." He said proudly, you wouldn’t think it to look at him now, but he was the best damn sheep dog I ever seen." This quote uses foreshadowing because for one thing, it is a companion to Candy as Lennie is to George. Also, the dog's death may have been Candy's fault just like Lennie's death may be George's fault. The effect of using foreshadowing is that foreshadowing puts the reader in suspense.
Of Mice and Men uses Lennie’s disability to help show the theme of the book. George struggled with taking care Lennie, having to keep finding work, and keeping a steady job. Lennie was the reason why George had to leave Weed. Lennie didn’t understand right from wrong. The book does a nice job of showing Lennie’s disability and his need for companionship.
The second murder he also allows to happen. And he does not punish Roger who killed Piggy. It seems that it is an advantage for him that Piggy is dead and that Ralph is alone now. Jack has only one aim: to be chief. First he is the leader of the hunters, but that is not enough for him.
The bunkhouse is where most of the conversations happen. Loneliness is a key theme which occurs inside the bunkhouse because this is where Carlson bullies candy into allowing him shoot his ageing, smelly, crippled dog. Candy is dependent on his dog as the dog has been with him for a long time but also there are similarities between candy and the dog they can be both labelled as useless because candy lost his hand whilst he was working on the ranch so there aren’t much work for him to do, the reason he still is on the ranch is so that he could claim his compensation that he deserves, the dog is also useless because his old and tired and wouldn’t be able to herd the sheep as before. So when Carlson does shoot the poor dog candy feels alone with no one to be there with him. Dreams is also linked in with the bunkhouse because this is where George and Lennie discuss their dream ‘of living on the fat of the land’ ‘ Lennie tending the rabbits’ but candy over hears their conversation and wants to be part of their dream.
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.
Kimberly Clemons Professor Angela Haynes English 1113 #006 - English Composistion I 7 February 2012 The Time I Tried to Save My Dog From the Electric Fence We have all had those moments where we lack common sense. You know those moments when you do something that you know better than doing, but for some reason, your brain just doesn't register how completly senseless it is. When I was just 14 years old, I had my first of many epic lapses of judgement. At the time it was anything but funny, but over the years my family has reminded me of it in such a comedic way that I can now look back at it and laugh. Let me tell you about the the time I tried to save my dog from the electric fence.
