As early as page four, the characterization of Lennie’s uncontrollable strength was denoted by Steinbeck’s description of the way he dragged his feet being similar to “the way a bear drags his paws” (4). And just like Candy’s dog, Lennie had also died, but mark that in both cases, they die by means of gun from their best friends. George’s decision to kill Lennie goes back to the extended metaphor between Lennie and Candy’s dog throughout the book. After the death of Candy’s dog, an interpersonal discussion between George and Candy leads to one important moment. Candy tells George that he “ought to of shot that dog [himself]“(60) and that he “shouldn’t ought to of let no stranger shoot [his] dog”(60).
Both of the stories have given us examples of symbols of motifs. In Annie Dillard’s short story “Living like Weasels”, we begin to see a weasels lifestyle, and what they do in their lives. The author gives us a description of wildlife for a weasel, and how she has seen one. “His face was fierce, small and pointed as a lizard…He had two black eyes I didn’t see, anymore then you see a window.”(Pg.1) What Dillard is trying to tell us is that the eyes gives us a predator look of the weasel, giving us readers a motif on singleness, visions and truth. Now how the eyes gives us a connection to “The Rocking-Horse Winner”, is how Paul’s close set eyes that seeks the truth into secrecy of his family.
30/9/11 Room 101: Wasps Wasps. They are annoying, pointless and persistent pests. Perpetually prodding people with their pricks, you know their stinger, they poison people without reason. When I was 8, I had a horrific experience with one of these foul creatures. I wanted to go out on my bike so I went to the shed to get my helmet, unknowing of the evil that lurked within.
Fred creates an extraction lab containing 26 caged, violently abused puppies. Naturally, everybody is expected to be upset with Fred’s behavior. Norcross compares the condition that these puppies endured to the animals that Americans consume from factory farms. He goes on to state that there aren’t any legitimate morally significant difference in how Americans treat their future food compared to how Fred treated his tortured puppies. Norcross compares the behavior of meat eating Americans to Fred’s behavior.
The animals, seeing the fall of their hero, fought harder than ever, from sadness and the desire for revenge. “Long Live Animal Farm!” Snowball pounced on Mr. Jones, knocking his rifle out of his hand with ease. Meanwhile, the cowardly Napoleon tried to sneak away from the chaos within the cowshed, only stopped by a rugged man, who spat, “you’re not goin’ anywhere!” Napoleon took to his heels and fled, with the man close behind, brandishing his long stick. The human invaders were desperate. The animals fought with renewed courage and determination due to Boxer’s death, but their stamina was giving way.
With the right training and socialization pit bulls make great pets. In the 90’s, a huge trend started where people were using pit bulls to gamble. They would viciously train the dogs to fight against other pit bulls. Almost like a cock fight, people would meet, bet money, and watch these dogs in cages fight each other to the death. Once the trend got publicly known, it became a huge deal in the media.
The story of “Dog’s death” interested me because my interpretation of this is that they just lost a member of the family and that they didn’t really notice that something was wrong with the dog. This interested me because I have gone through this before I have lost a pet that I consider part of the family and I never really saw the signs that it was sick. As John says “She must have been kicked unseen or brushed by a car”. Here he is saying that they never really saw any sign of injury and took it as if it just wanted attention or to be told good dog. This piece interested me because it show emotion through the writing and you can feel what they were feeling.

It is as if he is instantly threatened by the monster, yet he cannot pinpoint why at first. These feelings of intimidation are later justified as his wife actually brings a creature home to have as a pet. As the story progresses, Stuart gets pushed farther and farther out of his place in his marriage with his wife. “She planted a
>>I will now inform you of the dangers of owning a wild animal. >The Humane Society of the United States's website tells us that >Exotic animals, by their very nature, are dangerous. Although most exotic animals are territorial and require group interactions, an exotic pet typically isolates and spends the majority of his/her day in a small enclosure unable to roam and express natural behaviors freely. These animals are time bombs waiting to explode. >Wild animals
